Global Radiopharmaceutical Market Report

DUBLIN, April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Dublin - Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Radiopharmaceutical Market Report" report to their offering.

     (Logo: )

The analysts forecast the Global Radio Pharmaceutical market to grow at a CAGR of 18.39 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing aging population. The Global Radio Pharmaceutical market has also been witnessing the increasing demand for radiopharmaceuticals. However, the short half-life could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

The report, the Global Radio Pharmaceutical Market 2012-2016, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the Americas, and the EMEA and APAC regions; it also covers the Global Radio Pharmaceutical market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

The key vendors dominating this market space are Cardinal Health Inc., Covidien plc, Lantheus Medical Imaging Inc., and IBA Molecular Inc.

Other vendors mentioned in the report are Advanced Medical Isotope Corp., Advanced Accelerator Applications SA, Algeta ASA, Bio-Nucleonics Inc., GE Healthcare Ltd., Monrol Nuclear Products Inc., Molecular Insight Pharmaceuticals Inc., Nordion Inc., Novelos Therapeutics Inc., NTP Radioisotopes (Pty) Ltd., Positron Corp., and Siemens Healthcare.

As a result of the rise in the incidences of cardiovascular, oncological, and neurological disorders among the population, there has been an increase in procedural volumes for PET, SPECT, SPECT-CT, PET-MRI, and SPECT-MRI procedures for imaging and diagnosis. Imaging without utilization of radiopharmaceuticals has become indispensable owing to their ability to enable diagnosis of various disease processes much earlier than other diagnostic test procedures.

For instance, the increasing number of oncology and cardiology procedures is expected to drive the demand for radiopharmaceuticals such as fluorodeoxyglucose used for PET scans. Thus, increasing demand for radiopharmaceuticals is expected to fuel the growth in this market.

According to the report, one of the main drivers in this market is the increasing aging population globally and the associated increase in incidences of cardiovascular diseases, neurological disorders, gastrointestinal diseases and oncological disorders among the aged population. The rise in demand for diagnostic screening of elderly patients has enhanced the need for radiopharmaceuticals.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges faced by the market is the high cost of devices using radioisotopes. Various smaller end-users do not have the required budget to buy such costly devices and settle for low-cost alternative devices.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
The IoT is upon us, but today’s databases, built on 30-year-old math, require multiple platforms to create a single solution. Data demands of the IoT require Big Data systems that can handle ingest, transactions and analytics concurrently adapting to varied situations as they occur, with speed at scale. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chad Jones, chief strategy officer at Deep Information Sciences, will look differently at IoT data so enterprises can fully leverage their IoT potential. He’ll sha...

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, will explore HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.
There are many considerations when moving applications from on-premise to cloud. It is critical to understand the benefits and also challenges of this migration. A successful migration will result in lower Total Cost of Ownership, yet offer the same or higher level of robustness. Migration to cloud shifts computing resources from your data center, which can yield significant advantages provided that the cloud vendor an offer enterprise-grade quality for your application.
Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction....
There will be 20 billion IoT devices connected to the Internet soon. What if we could control these devices with our voice, mind, or gestures? What if we could teach these devices how to talk to each other? What if these devices could learn how to interact with us (and each other) to make our lives better? What if Jarvis was real? How can I gain these super powers? In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, will show you!
As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders?

The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed.
