Global Inorganic Scintillators Market 2017-2021

Global Inorganic Scintillators Market 2017-2021

About Inorganic Scintillators

A scintillator is a material that exhibits the property of luminescence when exposed to ionizing radiation from X-rays and gamma rays. Scintillators are of two types: organic scintillators and inorganic scintillators. Organic scintillators include naphthalene, anthracene, and lumogen. Inorganic scintillators include materials such as sodium iodide, cesium iodide, bismuth germanate, lutetium oxyorthosilicate (LSO), lutetium-yttrium oxyorthosilicate (LYSO), and cesium doped with activators such as thallium or sodium.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global inorganic scintillators market to grow at a CAGR of 5.60% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Inorganic Scintillators Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global inorganic scintillators market: Dynasil, Hamamatsu Photonics, Hitachi, Saint-Gobain, and Toshiba Materials

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Argus Imaging, Amcrys, Carestream Health, EPIC Crystal, Geebee International, Ludlum Measurements, Mirion Technologies, NIHON KESSHO KOGAKU, NUVIA, Rexon Components, Scintacor, Thermo Fisher Scientific, and Zecotek Photonics.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Increased R&D investments and material innovations. Many local and international vendors manufacture inorganic scintillators for radiation detection applications. Vendors compete based on product development, innovations, R&D investments, material innovations, and expansions. Innovations by major players in the market have led to the manufacture of scintillators doped with activators such as sodium and thallium.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Excellent physical properties of inorganic scintillators. Inorganic scintillators are widely used in many applications such as homeland security systems, healthcare applications, nuclear power plants, and industrial applications. The extensive use of inorganic scintillators for radiation detection applications is mainly because of their excellent properties and differential features.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Availability of substitutes. There are various substitutes for inorganic scintillators such as plastic scintillators, organic scintillators, and gaseous scintillators, which have the potential to hinder the growth of the inorganic scintillators market. Plastic scintillators contain a fluorescent substance in a solid polymer matrix that acts as a base. Plastic scintillators are widely used in industrial applications because of their advantages such as short decay time and high light output. In addition, they can be molded into a variety of shapes quickly. Plastic scintillators are suitable for various applications. They exhibit the highest durability compared with other types of scintillators.
