The proton therapy market in Italy is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of around 25% during the period 2017 – 2022. In Italy, there are 3 proton beam therapy centers, which considerably boosts their capacity to treat a greater number of patients. The treatment of the first local patients with proton beams was administered in 2002 at Catania’s INFN-LNS. Surging incidence rates of cancer patients in Italy, and technological advances are expected to give a boost to the domestic proton therapy marketplace.
