There will be a growing dependence of the 21st century civilization on effectively harnessing and developing the technologies offered by ionizing radiation. Even in the case where there are no more weapons or power plants, humanity would still rely on ionizing radiation to diagnose and treat disease, deliver safe food, and seek out carbon based energy sources. Sensors will still be employed in transportation corridors, shipping vehicles, and boarder security. Radiation detection similar to the integrated circuit may be mature technology however it continues to deliver value and evolve with changing needs.
Radiation Detection Equipment
New ground has been broken by NanoMarkets with the report on radiation detection materials, but those materials are only part of the radiation sensor story. Nanomarkets now focuses on the devices themselves to see how the evolution of new material technologies and data processing intersect with the trends in the end-markets to deliver new form-factors, better performance, and lower cost. This report shows the trends in radiation sensors employed in four key applications arenas: medical detection and imaging, nuclear security and safety, energy and industrial applications, and scientific measurement and testing.
NanoMarkets delivers 8-year forecasts for key sensors in radiation detection applications, such as medical gamma cameras, RIIDS, portal monitors, PET detectors, oil exploration and scientific sensors. All demand forecasts are segmented by device type and world region. Readers of this report will understand macro-market drivers affecting technological changes and understand where technology push may be forcing disruptive changes. Key participant organizations will be profiled to illustrate their strategies and needs in this diverse market.
NanoMarkets believes that executives and entrepreneurs, business development and product development professionals, as well as investors and inventors involved with radiation sensor equipment OEMs, electronics or materials providers, as well as device end users, will benefit from this comprehensive analysis.
