Glen Allen, VA: According to a new report from industry analyst firm NanoMarkets the market for radiation detectors will grow from $25.7 billion (USD) in 2014 to $31.5 billion in revenues in 2019. The report, “Radiation Detection Markets 2014-2021” analyzes and forecasts the potential for radiation detection equipment and continues the firm’s coverage that dates back to 2011.

The report states that gamma radiation detection devices is the biggest segment accounting for close to 40% of the market and should maintain this share throughout the forecasting period. Medical X-ray detection equipment will account for the next biggest market share (27% in 2014) but the firm expects it to decline towards the end of the forecasting period. In terms of growth rates, laboratories (especially Big Physics) are expected to record the highest growth rates followed by the nuclear power sector.

The report notes that firms to watch include, Berkeley Nucleonics Corporation, Canberra, Carestream Health, Fuji Electric, GE Healthcare, Hologic, Kromek, Ludlam Measurements, Philips Healthcare, Saphymo and Siemens Global.
