Please click here to get the relevant report of Radiation Detection, Monitoring & Safety Market for Nuclear Power Plants, Homeland Security & Defense, Manufacturing Industry (Geiger Counter, Scintillator, Dosimeter, Area Process, Survey Meter, Portal Monitors) – Trends & Global Forecasts to 2017

The global radiation protection (detection, monitoring, and safety) market was valued at $920.0 million in 2012, and is expected to reach $1,231.2 million by 2017 at a CAGR of 6.0% from 2012 to 2017. The various industries covered in this report are healthcare, manufacturing, defense, nuclear power plants, homeland security, and others (waste management, mining, agriculture, and food irradiation).

The medical industry was the largest segment in this market; it is poised to grow at a CAGR of 6.0% to reach $702.4 million by 2017. The global radiation protection market for medical applications will witness challenging and dynamic market conditions over the years to come, primarily driven by technological advancements and globalization.

The high procedural volume of nuclear medicine and radiation therapy in the treatment and diagnosis of diseases is the key factor driving the growth of the radiation protection market for medical applications. In addition, increasing incidence of cancer cases, growing awareness among radiation professionals, and technological advancements are fueling the growth of this market.The market for certain radiation detection and monitoring devices, such as ionization chambers, has grown due to the evolution of portable hand-held ionization detectors in recent years.

Factors hindering the growth of this market are lack of proper standardization and calibration for radiation protection devices, dearth of adequate skills and training among radiation professionals, and scarcity of raw materials to manufacture radiation safety accessories.

With increase in technological advancements, regulatory requirements are becoming more stringent and rigorous, requiring extensive data, and documentation for validation and product approval. This is affecting the launch and adoption of radiation protection devices. For example, active dosimeters are used lesser than passive dosimeters in the medical field as they are not regarded as ‘legal dosimeters’ that have been approved for use in recording personnel dose for regulatory purposes. Passive dosimeters, hence, commanded the larger share of the global personal dosimeters market in 2012. Other challenges faced by the market are sustainability of players in the highly competitive market, and scarcity of raw materials to manufacture radiation safety accessories.

North America dominated the radiation protection market for medical applications in 2012, followed by Europe. However, emerging markets in developing countries across the world, including China, India, and Russia, offer significant growth opportunities to the radiation protection devices market. The increasing installation base of radiological imaging systems and adoption rates of therapeutic radiology also offer opportunities for growth in developing countries. In addition, factors such as increasing healthcare expenditure, favorable regulatory policies, rising number of medical facilities such as hospitals and labs and lesser competition than mature countries, have amplified the interest of market players in emerging markets.

The key players in the medical protection market are Landauer, Inc. (U.S.), Mirion Technologies, Inc. (U.S.), Radiation Detection Company (U.S.), Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. (U.S.), AmRay Medical (Ireland), Bar-Ray Products, Inc. (U.S.), Biodex Medical Systems, Inc. (U.S.), Protech Radiation Safety (U.S.), ProtecX (U.K.), and Unfors RaySafe AB (Sweden).

    Radiation protection (detection, monitoring, and safety) is the science of protecting the human population and environment from the harmful effects of ionizing radiation, such as electromagnetic and particulate radiations. Ionizing radiations are high-energy radiations that can break DNA linkage and cause irreversible damage to living cells. This property is widely used in the treatment of cancer and radiological diagnosis of diseases. Nevertheless, the growing use of radiation for medical benefits is also having harmful effects on humans. Unnecessary exposure to ionizing radiation can cause various diseases such as burns, photoaging, cataract, melanoma, and photodermatoses, among many others.

    The various industries covered in this report are healthcare, manufacturing, defense, nuclear power plants, homeland security, and others (radioactive waste management, mining, agriculture, and food irradiation). The global radiation protection market was valued at $920.0 million in 2012, and is expected to reach $1,231.2 million by 2017 at a CAGR of 6.0% from 2012 to 2017. The medical industry was the largest segment in this market; it is poised to grow at a CAGR of 6.0% to reach $702.4 million by 2017. The global radiation protection market for medical applications will witness challenging and dynamic market conditions over the years to come, primarily driven by technological advancements and globalization.

    The global radiation protection market for medical applications in this report is segmented into two categories, namely, detection and monitoring, and radiation safety. The radiation detection and monitoring market for medical applications is further segmented as gas-filled, solid state and scintillators, based on composition, and as environment radiation monitors, personal dose monitors, surface contamination monitors, radioactive material monitors, and area process monitors, on the basis of application. The radiation safety market for medical applications is divided into three major segments, namely, full body protection, hand safety, and face protection.

    The medical industry has witnessed an increasing number of radiological and nuclear medicine procedures taking place over the past few years. Newer products with better safety and efficacy contribute to the widespread adoption of radiation monitoring and safety devices by physicians. However, a few factors hindering the growth of this market are lack of proper standardization and calibration protocols for radiation protection devices, lack of adequate skills and training among radiation professionals, and scarcity of raw materials to manufacture radiation safety accessories.

    The growth potential of radiation protection devices is high in emerging markets compared to mature markets. Factors such as favorable regulatory policies, growing incidence of cancer, rising installation base of nuclear and radiation therapy systems, and low competition are compelling established as well as new companies to focus on emerging markets.

    The key players in the radiation protection market for medical applications are Landauer, Inc. (U.S.), Mirion Technologies, Inc. (U.S.), Radiation Detection Company (U.S.), Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. (U.S.), AmRay Medical (Ireland), Bar-Ray Products, Inc. (U.S.), Biodex Medical Systems, Inc. (U.S.), Protech Radiation Safety (U.S.), ProtecX (U.K.), and Unfors RaySafe AB (Sweden).
