Irradiation Apparatus Market Size, Share & Forecast To 2022

July 2015 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Global irradiation apparatus market is expected to be a lucrative market driven by various technological augmentations and incremental growth in the medical and pharmaceutical industries. Irradiation apparatus produces radiation in the form of high-speed neutrons, gamma rays, X-rays, electrons, and alpha–beta particles. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) through the Food and Drug Administration Modernization Act (FDAMA) recognizes various X-ray imaging standards. The combination of laser beam along with rotary laser irradiation apparatus enables uniform width irradiation, a phenomenon called linear welding. Using conventional irradiation apparatus was expensive and inconvenient, and at the same time portable irradiation apparatus made a breakthrough by working on these restraints. X-ray has its applications in metal detection, securing against terrorist attacks, and body scanners; while advances such as linear accelerators and accelerator electrons have made their mark in medical and research industries, medical, veterinary, research purposes, dental, and podiatric diagnosis.

The irradiation apparatus market is segmented on the basis of application into therapeutics, diagnostics, chiropractic diagnosis, dental application, and research and industrial purposes. Computed Tomography (CT) sophistication has made immense technological advancements by including products such as portable CT, cone-beam CT, extreme multi-detector CT, iterative reconstruction algorithms, dual-energy CT, and phase-contrast CT. A research was presented establishing the advantage of phase-contrast CT as compared to conventional-based X-ray imaging, where phase-contrast CT gave higher contrast for weak tissues such as the one in breast cancer.

Geographic segment includes North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America. Presence of key player manufacturers and growing technological advancements are the key drivers of the irradiation apparatus market. In the U.S., there has been waiver for the non-manufacturers by the Small Business Administration (SBA), where they supply products under federal contract to domestic manufacturers. Government in Asia Pacific is trying to encourage the irradiation apparatus through various initiatives and is trying to expand its applications even in the pharmaceutical industry.

Major players of the irradiation apparatus market are Fujifilm, Carestream Health, Inc., Ziehm Imaging Inc., and Siemens Healthcare. Fujifilm’s came up with a proprietary technology, Irradiation Side Sampling (ISS), to decrease X-ray scattering, thus, improving Modular Transfer Fusion (MTF). In September 2014, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) gave a contract of USD 196,140 to Carestream Health. To develop future market share, Ziehm Imaging Inc. selected Trumpf Medical, a worldwide distributor of medical technologies for France. Ziehm presented its first C-arm portfolio in the European Congress of Radiology (ECR). These developments in the irradiation apparatus market through strategies such as expansion, collaborations, or technological advancements are major contributors for this booming market.
