DUBLIN, May 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/zsqlf8/inorganic) has announced the addition of the "Inorganic Scintillators Market by Type & by Application - Competitive Landscape, Global Forecasts & Trends to 2018" report to their offering.
The need for nuclear power is growing significantly over the years. Inorganic scintillators are widely used in these nuclear power plants and other areas. The global market is categorized into three broad segments, namely, type, applications, and geography. The global market, by type, comprises of CsI, NaI, GoS and others. The NaI scintillators market accounted for the largest share of the global market in 2013 and is also slated to grow at the highest CAGR from 2013 to 2018.
The market by application includes healthcare, nuclear power plants, industrial, homeland security and defense, and others. In 2013, the healthcare accounted for the largest share of the global inorganic scintillators market, by application. On the basis of geography, the market is classified into four regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia and Rest of the World (RoW), with country-wise analysis.
Technological advancements in inorganic scintillators rise in security threats to drive the radiation detection market for homeland security, increase in PET/CT scans, increasing incidence of cancer, paramount concern for safety in the wake of Fukushima disaster are the key factors that are expected to drive the growth of this market. The primary factors that are restraining the growth of this market include shortage in nuclear power and radiation workforce, decline of number of power plants and shortage of Helium-3.
North America accounted for the largest share of the global market, followed by Europe and Asia. However, Asia is slated to grow at a fastest CAGR from 2013 to 2018. The growth in the Asian market is likely to be focused on countries such as China, India, due to the increase in the number of nuclear power plants. In addition, increased safety measures in China are set to aid market growth.
The major players in the global inorganic scintillators market include, Hamamatsu Photonics K.K. (Japan), Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc. (U.S.), Argus Imaging B.V.
