New Report on Market for Radiation Detectors

Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets today announced the launch of two new research efforts examining the markets for radiation detectors and radiation detection materials. The studies will be released in early-to-mid Q2 of 2013 and are a follow up from the firm's 2011 market study of this space.

Details about the reports are available on the firm's website at They can be purchased as a set or individually. The firm is making the studies available at pre-publication rates.

Radiation Detection Materials Markets 2013:

This report identifies the latest opportunities for radiation detection materials and especially those that have emerged since NanoMarkets groundbreaking report in 2011. A particular focus of this year's report is how the opportunities for radiation materials are likely to change in the light of latest developments in end user sectors. In each of these applications – and in others – this report examines which materials can best capitalize on the available opportunities, now and in the future.

Both scintillation and semiconductor radiation detection materials are covered in this report in which we show how improving costs and performance is helping to increase the addressable markets for these materials. As with all NanoMarkets reports, the new analysis of the radiation detection materials markets contains a granular eight year forecast, broken down by application and type of material. These forecasts are provided in terms of both revenues ($ millions) and volume (cubic centimeters sold). In addition, this report provides an assessment of the product/market strategies of the key firms active in the radiation detection materials sector.

Radiation Detector Markets 2013:

21st century civilization will rely more and more on effectively harnessing and developing the technologies that ionizing radiation has to offer. Even if weapons and power plants went away in the next 100 years, humanity would still rely on ionizing radiation to diagnose and treat disease, deliver safe food, and seek out carbon based energy sources. Sensors would still be employed in transportation corridors, shipping vehicles, and boarder security. Radiation detection, like the integrated circuit, may be mature technology, but it continues to deliver value and evolve with changing needs.

NanoMarkets broke new ground with our report on radiation detection materials, but those materials are only part of the radiation sensor story. NanoMarkets now moves downstream to 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 illustrates 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.

Within this report, NanoMarkets delivers eight-year forecasts for key sensors used 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.
