A branch of interventional radiology called interventional oncology (IO) employs imaging-guided minimally invasive treatments to diagnose and treat cancer and disorders connected to it. A minimally invasive tumor biopsy can be performed safely by interventional oncologists to obtain the necessary genetic or proteomic data for precisely customizing the chemotherapeutic drugs anticipated to have the desired therapeutic impact. Interventional oncology devices diagnose and treat cancer with minimally invasive procedures and modern imaging technology.

Advanced oncology's interventional oncology specialty treats solid tumors in the liver, kidneys, lungs, bones, and other organs by using X-rays, ultrasounds, computed tomography (CT), or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to guide tiny instruments (biopsy needles, ablation electrodes, intravascular catheters). Interventional oncology techniques mainly fall into two categories: diagnostic treatments that help identify suspicious neoplasms on tissue and therapeutic approaches that treat or lessen tumors. These techniques have the benefit of having a far lesser effect on the body as a whole and the organ being treated. Also, it offers a quicker recovery period compared to conventional open procedures.

Market Dynamics

Global Interventional Oncology Devices Market Drivers:

High Prevalence and Growing Incidences of Cancer

The high prevalence and growing incidences of cancer are major factors augmenting the global interventional oncology devices market. For instance, according to UICC.ORG's GLOBOCAN, there were 19.3 million cancer cases globally in 2020. Furthermore, cancer caused 10 million deaths in the same year. According to Cancer Research U.K., the growing incidence of cancer can be attributed to higher life expectancy as compared to 50 years ago; the longer individual life, the higher the chances of getting diagnosed with cancer, as cancer is caused due to errors in DNA codes which provide a blueprint for the functioning of our cells. Once DNA is miscoded with cancer-promoting errors, the cell becomes overactive and progresses to producing cancer. In addition, lifestyle changes, an increase in the number of people exposed to either first or second-hand smoke, and an increase in the consumption of alcohol are the major factors expected to drive the global interventional oncology devices market in the future.

Expanding Role of Interventional Oncology in the Treatment of Cancer

Cancer incidences have reportedly risen since the beginning of the 21st century. Hence, the need for a new treatment modality for cancer patients surged rapidly. Consequently, medical science has witnessed rapid advancements in the early diagnosis and treatment of cancer. One of the several revolutionary advancements is the advent of interventional oncology, which has advanced the treatment by reducing the time of hospital stays and postoperative complications related to the treatment. Furthermore, the field of interventional oncology is constantly evolving with the introduction of novel technologies.

Additionally, the latest technology integrated is theranostics. For instance, according to a research study published by National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) in 2019, titled, Theranostics in Interventional Oncology: Versatile Carriers for Diagnosis and Targeted Image-Guided Minimally Invasive Procedures, theranostics can be used in integration with interventional oncology for development of personalized treatments for cancer patients. Therefore, with the advent of precision or personalized interventional oncology, the market is projected to grow in the forecast period.

Global Interventional Oncology Devices Market Restraint:

Dearth of Trained Interventional Oncologists

A major restraint for the global interventional oncology devices market is the need for more skilled interventional oncology professionals in most countries who can perform interventional oncology procedures.

The sub-orbital reusable launch vehicles segment is responsible for the largest market share and is anticipated to exhibit a CAGR of 12.01% over the forecast period. According to the Global Cancer Observatory, the estimated number of liver cancer in 2020 was 906,000 and is expected to reach 1.40 million in 2040. The highest share of the liver cancer segment can be attributed to the increased consumption of alcohol, chronic viral hepatitis, liver cirrhosis, and a rise in the obesity index globally. Moreover, liver cancer is less common in the U.S. than in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asian countries. Liver cancer accounts for more than 70,000 deaths each year.

According to the Global Cancer Observatory, the estimated number of lung cancer in 2020 was 2.21 million and is expected to reach 3.63 million in 2040. Active and passive cigarette smoking is the major risk factor for lung cancer, and rising air pollution leads to a high growth rate of this segment during the forecast period.

The ablation devices segment dominates the global market and is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 11.86% over the forecast period. Tumor ablation is a minimally invasive technique for treating liver, kidney, and lung cancers. The tumor ablation procedure involves using thermal energy to heat or cool tissue to cytotoxic levels, i.e., less than -40ºC or more than 60ºC. Ablation is used as the first line of treatment in a few cases of hepatocellular carcinoma. It is also considered an important option for patients who are either not eligible for surgery or have failed chemotherapy. Ablation is generally used for tumors less than 3cm; for tumors of larger size (3-5 cm), ablation may be used along with embolization.

Tumor embolization is a minimally invasive procedure in which thin catheters are guided into the arteries providing the blood supply to the tumor to stop the blood supply to the tumor or deliver substances to kill the tumor. Embolization procedures are also used in patients for which surgery is not an option. It can also be utilized on patients with large tumors for whom ablation is not an option. The embolization procedures act by occluding the blood supply to the tumor, thereby producing ischemia in the tumors, resulting in tumor necrosis.

Based on end-user, the global interventional oncology devices market is segmented into hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, and others. 

The government segment owns the highest market share and is estimated to exhibit a CAGR of 11.91% during the forecast period. Hospitals are at the forefront in terms of interventional oncology device adoption. The increasing focus on evidence-based care has been among the strongest drivers for adopting interventional oncology. The adoption of interventional oncology devices in private and public hospitals has continuously increased.
