Radiation processing is a technology that uses radioactive isotope ionizing radiation energy to ionize and irradiate certain substances and materials. At present, it is widely used in the fields of cross-linked cables, heat shrinkable materials, rubber, foam plastics, surface curing, neutron transmutation doped with silicon, medical supplies disinfection, food irradiation preservation, wastewater, waste gas treatment, and other fields.
With the development of science and technology, radioisotopes have widespread use in many fields such as industry, agriculture, medicine, environmental protection, military, resource exploration, scientific research, etc. They have obtained significant economic benefits and social benefits.
The detection sensitivity of radioisotopes is exceptionally high. Various isotope monitoring instruments made by the emitted rays, such as level gauges, density meters, thickness gauges, nuclear scales, moisture meters, gamma-ray flaw detectors, and ionization smoke fire alarms has extensive use in various fields such as safety monitoring, industrial production, and scientific research.
Nuclear medicine diagnosis is a diagnostic method for examining patients based on the principle of radioactive tracing. Ionizing radiation can kill cancer cells. At present, radiation therapy is one of the three effective methods for cancer treatment. More than 70% of cancer patients need to use radiation therapy. Radiation therapy can be divided into external long-distance radiation, intracavity short-range radiation, short-range interstitial radiation, and internal intervention radiation.
With emerging technology advancement, radiation therapy is used for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer and, thus, drives the market demand. Radiation therapy is one of the most extensively used cancer treatments. It includes using radiation in different forms (X-rays, gamma rays, particles) to destroy and destroy tumors alone or with the help of surgery or chemotherapy.
The rise in demand for nuclear medicine used to diagnose, treat, and study diseases. It refers to the application of ray beams generated by accelerators, and atomic radiation generated by radioisotopes in medicine. It is used for diagnosis, treatment, and medical, scientific research in pharmacy, and also used for the study of the principle of drugs, the determination of drug activity, drug analysis, and radiation disinfection of drugs.
Based on the monitors, the Asia Pacific radiation detection and monitoring equipment market segment into Personal Dosimeters, Environmental Radiation& Surface Contamination Monitors, Area Process Monitors, Radioactive Material Monitors. The Environmental Radiation & Surface Contamination segment accounted for the largest share in the Asia Pacific radiation detection and monitoring equipment market. It is mainly owing to the equipment install in the environment to monitor and detect the pollution below the level of the regulation limit and take appropriate measures for it. The essential requirement of surface pollution measurement is to find out whether there is pollution, to determine the location and range of infection, and to give the amount of polluted nuclide in the contaminated area.
Based on the detectors, the Asia Pacific radiation detection and monitoring equipment market classified into Gas-filled Detectors, Solid-state Detectors, Scintillators. The gas-filled detectors segment is estimated to dominates the maximum share of Asia Pacific radiation detection and monitoring equipment market in the forecast period. The gas-filled detectors equipment’s demand mainly owes to its durability, portability, and user-friendliness, and also cost-effectiveness is driving the market value. Moreover, it provides uniformity in detection with other detectors.
Based on the safety types, the Asia Pacific radiation detection and monitoring equipment segmented into Full-body Protection, Face & Hand Protection, Other Safety Types. Full-body protection dominates the Asia Pacific radiation detection and monitoring equipment market. The long-term and excessive electromagnetic radiation will cause harm to human reproductive, nervous, and immune systems. Radiation protection suit has an excellent shielding effect on the electric field and reduces the impact of electromagnetic radiation on the body. Thus, a full-body protection suit is propelling the market of radiation detection and monitoring equipment market.
Based on the end-user, the Asia Pacific radiation detection and monitoring equipment market bifurcated into Hospital, Non-hospital. The non-hospital segment has dominated the largest share in the Asia Pacific radiation detection and monitoring equipment market. It is mainly owing to the emerging adoption of radiation detection and monitoring equipment in military & defense, and other industrial sectors include environment monitoring and research purposes. Thus, radiation detection and monitoring equipment market demand is fueling to get internal security and enhance safety measures.
Based on geography, the Asia Pacific radiation detection and monitoring equipment market segmented into China, India, Japan, Australia, Rest of Asia Pacific. China has captured the largest market share of the Asia Pacific radiation detection and monitoring equipment market. It is mainly due to the high adoption of gas-filled detectors is fueling the market demand in China. Also, china faces a lack of technology, and skilled staff to deal with radiation issues are propelling its market value.
Companies such as Canberra Industries, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Landauer, Mirion Technologies, Bar-Ray Products, Biodex Medical Systems, Protech Radiation Safety, Amtek, and others are key players in the Asia Pacific radiation detection and monitoring equipment market.
