Global Cryostat Market: Overview
Cryostat is a device or system which is used to maintain an object or sample at low cryogenic temperature. Cryostat maintains low temperature by thermally isolating an object from room temperature with the help of cryogenic fluids such as liquid helium or liquid nitrogen. In addition, cryostat often find their use in healthcare applications such as spectroscopy, storing and maintaining frozen tissues, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Cable cryostat is used in superconducting transmission and distribution cable systems in order to maintain proper operating conditions. Many manufacturers of cryostat are delivering a superconducting cable cryostat for transmission and distribution of electricity. In addition, companies are developing cryostat machines with Ultraviolet C (UVC) disinfection for enhanced safety and efficiency.
Global Cryostat Market: Drivers and Restraints
The growth of global cryostat market is mainly driven by the demand for advance and effective healthcare procedures for diagnosis across the world especially in nascent economies. In addition, the requirement for storing and maintaining tissue samples for research and diagnosis purpose in medical facilities and laboratories is increasing which in turn is paving demand for global cryostat market. Moreover, cryostat systems are expected to see large scale adoption due to increasing healthcare industry, and enhancing diagnostics in healthcare procedures. The demand for cryostats are anticipated to increase due to growing natural gas imports as well.
The market growth is further supported by the rising demand for superconducting system in energy sector due to massive adoption of natural gas pipelines for transmission. Moreover, companies are emphasizing on development of cryostat machines in order to enhance the efficiency to provide fast and accurate diagnostics thereby boosting the market demand worldwide. However, a major drawback in cryostat systems is an occurrence of freeze artifacts during the frozen section procedure during the tissue diagnosis. Freeze artifact is a side-effect of procedure carried in cryostat system damaging the tissue samples. Furthermore, frequent heat losses in cryostat and requirement of high input power are expected to restrain the large scale adoption of cryostat systems. The increasing demand for cryogenic systems for aerospace and astronomy are expected to provide opportunities for cryostat market in the future.
