Treatment Planning Software Market Segmented By type of software that is Auto-Contouring Software, Multi-Modality Software, PET/CT Deformable Software, and DICOM-RT Software used in hospitals, cancer research institute, and diagnostic & treatment centers.
The revolutionary changes in the healthcare sector due to the increasing penetration of information technology, the patient treatment programs are also changing along with the treatment delivery ways for doctors. With this rapid technology adoption, the treatment planning software is standing out as the heart of radiation therapy. Increasing number of cancer patients the global level are leading to the increasing demand of the treatment planning software.
This software is used for delivering radiation therapy to the cancer patient. Deployment of treatment planning systems is increasing rapidly in cancer treatment institutes for providing accurate and fast external beam therapy to cancer patients. Vendors of the treatment planning systems are continually focusing on innovating advanced solutions for the cancer treatment due to the changing global scenarios.
Moreover, demand for the treatment planning systems is also increasing due to the ability of the software to control the radiation beams including protons, photon, FFF beams, electrons, low-dose-rate brachytherapy external beams, and cobalt therapy in cancer treatment.
Rising demand for the effective and more advanced cancer treatment at the global level is a major driving factor for the treatment planning software market. The deployment of treatment planning systems is exponentially high in hospitals as well as cancer research institutes owing to increasing number of cancer patients and hefty expenditure budget of them.
The fact that the software helps the treatment providers to improve speed, accuracy, deliver advanced care, and reduce the errors with the help of automated calculations and beam planning is driving the treatment planning software market.
Also, increasing popularity of the proton therapy for the radiation therapy is fueling the treatment planning software market as the proton beams are increasingly preferred for the cancer treatment. Hospitals, cancer research institutes are deploying the treatment planning software for reducing the collateral tissue damage to the patients to avoid the side effects after radiation treatment this parameter is resulting into increasing deployment of treatment planning software.
On the other hand, higher cost of treatment planning software, less adoption rate in developing countries and lack of skilled workforce to operate and plan the treatment using the software.
