Global personal dosimeter market is estimated to grow considerably in the forecast period owing to increased applications, such as oncology treatment and other chronic disorders. Personal dosimeter, also known as passive, legal or individual dosimeter, measures the amount of energy placed by ionizing radiation. This measurement estimates the dosage received by a body through external radiation. Amongst the different types of dosimeters, electronic dosimeters are widely used. They are integrated with sophisticated functions like continual monitoring, which enables a warning at pre-determined levels and displays the level of accumulated dosage in the real-time.
Factors influencing the growth of personal dosimeter market are effective response of dosimeters in all the types of environment, rise in the use of radiation mediated technology, increasing focus of manufacturers for improvements in features and technology for making it compatible to extreme weather conditions, and applications in industries like medical, mining, nuclear, etc. However, significant cost of the device is hampering the growth of personal dosimeter market. Additionally, exposure to electromagnetic fields that cause variations in readings also restricts the demand for personal dosimeters, thereby affecting the market growth.
Growing investment by government and private investors is trending in the market. Moreover, the ability of personal dosimeters to monitor radiations in electronics (tablets, smartphones, and computers) is a growth opportunity for the market.
Personal dosimeter market is categorized based on product type, application, end user, and geography. Based on product type, market is divided into self-reading dosimeter and non-self-reading dosimeter. Non-self-reading dosimeter is further split into thermoluminescent dosimeter (TLD), film badges, and optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) dosimeter, whereas self-reading dosimeter comprises electronic dosimeter. Self-reading dosimeter (electronic dosimeter) segment is expected to hold larger share of the market due to increasing preference for gas-detecting dosimeters, which are electronic.
In terms of application, market is divided into nuclear power plant, industrial, medical, and others. Personal dosimeters are widely used in medical industry and industrial sites, where the staff and workers are exposed harmful and toxic gases.
Based on end user, personal dosimeter market is divided into research organizations, hospitals, cancer treatment centre and radiation therapy, and laboratories. Laboratories and cancer treatment centre and radiation therapy are expected to lead the market due to increased use of personal dosimeters.
Geographically, market is segmented as North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. North America is expected to dominate the market in the forecast period owing to the factors like rise in incidences of skin disorders and growing awareness towards health issues caused by unsafe radiations. Europe is also expected to hold larger share of the market due to growing government initiatives for harmful radiations hazards. Furthermore, Asia Pacific also accounts for a considerable market share owing to the technological advancements and rise in preventive measures.
