Global Inorganic Scintillators Market: Overview
Inorganic scintillators are crystals exhibiting luminescence when exposed to higher level of radiation. They are manufactured using oxides and alkali halides at high temperatures. Inorganic scintillators are primarily employed for the detection since they are highly stable in the presence of intense ionizing radiations. Based on end use, the global inorganic scintillators market can be segmented into defense, homeland security, nuclear power plants, and other segments of high energy physics applications.
The report provides a comprehensive overview of the market covering the factors supporting and limiting its growth. It includes exhaustive information obtained from trusted industrial sources through primary and secondary research. Compiled with the intent of providing readers an executive-level blueprint of the global inorganic scintillators market, the report delves into presenting a detailed assessment of its vendor landscape. Using Porter’s five forces, the report also gauges the bargaining power of buyers and suppliers, threat from new entrants and close substitutes, and the degree of competition prevailing in the market.
Global Inorganic Scintillators Market: Trends and Opportunities
The global inorganic scintillators market can be segmented into sodium iodine, cesium iodine, gadolinium oxysulfide, and other niche categories. The increasing number of high energy physics applications is encouraging research and development activities in the market. This surge in R&D activities has resulted in a rise in the number of product segments in the global inorganic scintillators market. For instance, lead tungstate and bismuth germinate are among a few niche product segments.
Inorganic scintillators help in detection of even a small amount of radiation and ensures high stability when exposed to high radiations.
