Australia Oncology Market Drivers

Technological up-gradation in radiation therapy has provided multifold results and is acting as a driver.

Radiation Therapy has been one of the approved methods of treating cancer by the Australian Oncology Department. Moreover, as per the researchers, the commonwealth government of Australia spends 9 cents in every dollar for radiation therapy in treating and curing cancer on the country level. The following proves that radiation therapy is a cost-effective treatment for patients with cancers in Australia. Moreover, the reason behind a low-cost treatment via radiation therapy is due to their setting in an outpatient treatment center. The following can help treat 30 patients each day for as good as ten years. Hence, the cost gets evenly distributed across each patient and even reduces the burden on the government. Additionally, technological advancements have made the treatment quicker, more accurate and precise, and lastly, effective.

The rising prevalence of cancer cases across the demography has acted as a driver for the following market.

Furthermore, Cancer has now been the leading cause of death in the region; earlier in 2014, it was the second leading cause of death. The following increment in cases and deaths has acted as a driver for the Australian oncology market.

Australia Oncology Market Challenges

Recruitment hurdles while developing and advancing technology has acted as a grave challenge for market growth and innovation.

As per the various researchers, only a handful of people or close to 5% of adult patients are diagnosed with cancer enroll in the cancer oncology trials. Moreover, there have been reported cases where the cancer patients actively visit sites that do not have sufficient staff capacity. Additionally, they are not included as the “trial location.” Moreover, patients have reported that the site selected for such trials is too far in terms of distance, that it becomes tiresome for many to maintain the required frequency of visits. Lastly, there are various patient concerns while taking part in the clinical trials as they fear for the unknown is nigh, and the scientific backing for such trials is not rigorous. Furthermore, if the patient trial rolls out delays due to unforeseen reasons, the entire trial program takes a huge financial debt.
