Scintillator Market by Composition of Material, Application (Healthcare, Homeland security, Industrial application, Nuclear Power Plants, and others), End Product (Personal Instrument, Hand-Held Instruments, Fixed, and Installed Instruments) & Geography - Global Forecast and Analysis to 2013 – 2020

The scintillators market is undergoing a significant transformation, with the changing landscape of healthcare, nuclear power plants, homeland security and defense, and manufacturing industries. The growth of this market is majorly influenced by the dynamics of these industries. Huge R&D investments and government funding in new scintillator discoveries are driving the growth of the overall scintillator market, globally. Rising demand for new radiological medical applications and increasing investments for radiation monitoring in homeland security are some of the drivers which are driving this market.

The elements behind the rapid upsurge in the Scintillator Market are the innovative and advanced technologies, government funding for increased R&D, wide need of radiation detection instruments across application markets, and development of high performance products at a low cost. In addition, depletion of Helium-3 for neutron detection in security operations, advancements in medical imaging and nuclear medicine, and increasing number of nuclear power plants is also believed to provide a further impetus to the growth of the scintillator market.

Scintillator is a material that identifies nuclear particles and radiation by reemitting the incident radiation in the form of light photons, which are further converted to electric signals by photomultiplier tubes. Initially, applications of these materials were limited to medical and visual counting purposes, but in the recent few years, scintillators have made a radical shift towards security, high energy physics, astrophysics, nuclear power plants, and scientific applications. Though, inorganic compounds are the most dominant materials leveraged for radiation detection in radiation monitoring and measurement devices, still many new compound scintillators have evolved due to the surge in research initiatives by the private and government sectors; such as cerium doped lanthanum halides, Europium doped strontium iodide, LSO, LYSO, and others. These continuous developments are driven by the emergence of new applications and due to the growing need of hand held and portable radiation detectors. Scintillators have a huge growth potential, especially, in markets that are characterized by low cost, and high resolution and performance in terms of the radiation monitoring equipment.
