Market Overview

The Dosimeter Market was valued at USD 470.62 million and is projected to grow at a CAGR of over 4.7% during the forecast period (2021 - 2026). Dosimeters find application across the growing demand of the medical industry as well as industrial sites where workers may be exposed to toxic and harmful gases, thereby driving the demand for the market during the forecast period.

  • The rising demand for dosimeter application for cancer treatments in the medical industry, during which patients are given very specific and targeted amounts of radiation in order to destroy cancer cells is expected to drive the demand for the market.
  • Dosimeters market is having a surging demand across the places where people deal with hazardous waste or radioactive substances, such as hospitals, nuclear power plants.
  • Increasing usage of radioactive materials across areas, such as diverse industrial processes, power production, medical research, medical imaging, and the defense sector, coupled with the heightened global threat of terrorist-operated nuclear weapons, has intensified the need for reliable equipment that offers protection from radioactive radiation, thereby driving the demand for the dosimeter market.

Scope of the Report

Dosimeters are scientific equipment used to measure the amount of energy deposited by ionizing radiation that is used to estimate the effective dose received by the human body through exposure to external ionizing radiation. Dosimeters contain phosphor crystals that trap electrons freed by various forms of harmful radiation. These take the form of small badges or wrist bands worn on the body are used to measure the dosage of harmful radiation that their wearers have been exposed to over a given period of time.

Key Market Trends

Industrial Sector is Gaining Traction Across the Emerging Economies

  • Companies are developing devices that can measure toxic and harmful gases and that are capable of being used as dosimeters, due to the increasing use of radioactive materials in areas, such as power production, industrial processing, medical research and processing, and the security sector, intensified the need for equipment offering protection against radioactive radiations.
  • Technological developments in the segment have resulted in the development of more accurate detection devices, that have led to the introduction of portable, durable, and economical devices, further augmenting the growth of the market. For instance, the availability of dosimeter instruments, such as automated reader instruments, electronic radiation measuring instruments, alarm badges, and thermoluminescent dosimeters (TLD) are increasing the range of applications across emerging economies.
  • Furthermore, the growing development of nuclear energy and facilities for industrial work is expected to boost the adoption of radiation detection and monitoring equipment, thereby rising the surging demand for the dosimeter market across the emerging economies.



North America to Register the Largest Market During the Forecast Period

  • The North America region is expected to drive a significant share of the dosimeter market due to its rising demand across multiple end-user industries among the healthcare, industrial, defense among others.   
  • The United States is looking to reduce dependence on thermal power, as five new nuclear power plants, with a combined capacity of 6000 MW, are under construction in Georgia and South Carolina, which are expected to increase the demand for radiation monitoring and detection products across the region.
  • Also, as part of the country’s policy, the United States is increasing its expenditure in the healthcare industry, which is expected to reach as high as 20% of the GDP by 2025, further increasing the demand for dosimeter equipment thereby driving the demand for the market during the forecast period.
  • Canada is also expected to follow suit and increase its defense expenditure, thereby driving the surging demand for radiation detection, monitoring, and safety products in defense are expected to drive the growth of the market in the region.

Competitive Landscape

The dosimeter market is moderately competitive and consists of a few major players. In terms of market share, some of the players currently dominate the market. However, with the advancement in the measurement, and assessment of the electronic component, new players are increasing their market presence thereby expanding their business footprint across the emerging economies.

  • July 2019 - The Radiation Monitoring Systems division of Mirion Technologies had acquired the PREMIUM Analyse, based in Norroy-le-Veneur. (France). The Radiation Monitoring Systems division offers a complete range of ionizing radiation and neutron flux monitoring solutions for nuclear power generation stations, research reactors and fuel cycle industry, as well as other applications.
  • January 2019 - Resman AS and Tracerco, part of Johnson Matthey Plc, have entered into a global patent license agreement under which Tracerco will have access to Resman’s inflow monitoring patents. Both Resman and Tracerco provide essential reservoir monitoring services enabling oil and gas companies to maximise efficiency and hydrocarbon recovery.
