The UK Proton Therapy Market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 82% in the future. The market is expected to grow 10 times from its current market in 2016. Currently the UK has only one Proton Therapy facility, at Clatterbridge cancer center, and it's a low-energy' machine, only suitable for treating people with rare eye cancers.
Treating more complex cancers requires a high-energy beam, so the NHS covers the cost of sending patients for treatment overseas (in the US or Switzerland) when there's clear evidence that proton beam therapy is the best option. However, this scenario is expected to make a drastic change in the next few years as United Kingdom will have at least 6 Proton Therapy Centers.
