Tanzania Radiotherapy Market Analysis Summary

By 2030, it is anticipated that the Tanzania Radiotherapy Market will reach a value of $xx Mn from $xx Mn in 2022, growing at a CAGR of xx% during 2022-30.

Tanzania is a low-income, developing country in East Africa bordering the Indian Ocean. Cancer is Tanzania's biggest noncommunicable disease, followed by diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Cancer cases have been continuously increasing in Tanzania. According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), 42,060 new cancer cases are identified in Tanzania each year, with a high mortality rate of 28,610 deaths per year, indicating that many patients are diagnosed at advanced stages. Tanzanian patients have access to the four pillars of cancer care: prevention and education, early detection and diagnosis, treatment, and palliative care. Through prevention education programs, early detection and diagnosis, treatment, and palliative care, the Foundation for Cancer Care in Tanzania improves cancer care to improve the lives of Tanzanians.

Tanzania's most common cancers include cervical cancer, prostate cancer, and breast cancer. Tanzania's government spent 3.8% of its GDP on healthcare in 2020.

Tanzania Radiotherapy Market Analysis

Market Dynamics

Market Growth Drivers Analysis

Recognizing that the high cost of chemotherapy and radiotherapy is a source of financial hardship and catastrophic spending for low-income populations, the Tanzanian government has exempted cancer patients from paying for treatment since charging (cost sharing) was introduced into the public health sector in 1993. These aspects could boost Tanzania's, Radiotherapy Market.

Market restrains.

Patients in Tanzania have long wait times as a result of common LINAC problems. Tanzania suffers from a lack of infrastructure. For a Tanzanian population of 47.4 Mn, there are only 3 radiation centres, 2 radiation machines, and 2 brachytherapy machines, but they should have 313 radiation machines to treat their population. The majority of the country lacks access to cancer treatment. Due to economic and resource constraints that make it impossible to access frequently costly hands-on courses, radiation oncologists in low- and middle-income countries get mostly theoretical training. In Tanzania, radiation oncologists contour using paper and a needle, which is far less exact than the 3D approach. These factors may deter new entrants into the Tanzania Radiotherapy Market.
