Radiation-Hardened Electronics Market

BAE Systems (UK), Microchip technology (US) are leading players in Radiation-Hardened Electronics Market

The market for radiation-hardened electronics was valued at USD 1.4 billion in 2020 and is estimated to reach USD 1.7 billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of 3.5% during the forecast period (2020–2026). Industries use radiation-hardened electronics to protect devices/systems from the effects of radiation. The application areas of rad-hard electronics include space (satellites), aerospace & defense, nuclear power plants, implantable medical devices, and scientific research. The growing intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) operations globally, the increase in number of space missions, and growing demand for rad-hard electronics in the commercial satellite industry are factors driving the growth of the rad-hard electronics market. However, the high development and testing costs are expected to restrain the growth of the market during the review period.

The report also includes the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the growth of the global radiation-hardened electronics market as well as the segments and regional markets. For instance, the satellite manufacturing as an application of rad-hard electronic components is affected severely by the disruptions caused across supply chains during COVID-19 severely. This is because this market is characterized by low production volumes and a high level of specialization, with a limited number of suppliers.
