The pancreatic Cancer market is classified into Chemotherapy, Targeted therapy, Radiation therapy, and Surgery. Radiation therapy is a cancer treatment that uses high-energy radiation, in the form of waves, such as x-rays, or particles, such as protons, to kill cancer cells or prevent them from growing and dividing. Radiation therapy can prevent pancreatic tumors from growing and sometimes shrinks them. Since radiation therapy is directed to a specific (focused) area, it is considered a local treatment.

By Cancer Type:

Pancreatic Cancer is divided into two major verticals namely exocrine pancreatic cancer and endocrine pancreatic cancer. The exocrine pancreatic cancer segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the coming years as this type of cancer is the most common and majorly occurring type and thus is expected to have a massive patient pool over the forecast years.

By Distribution:
