Radiation Hardened Electronics Market To Reach $2.42 Billion By 2030

May 2024 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Radiation Hardened Electronics Market Growth & Trends

The global radiation hardened electronics market size is anticipated to reach USD 2.42 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 5.7% from 2024 to 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. This growth is primarily driven by the increasing demand for electronics globally, especially in sectors where dependability and safety are critical. The ongoing research and development efforts in material science, design techniques, and testing methodologies lead to enhanced performance, reliability, and affordability of radiation-hardened (rad-hard) electronics.

In space applications, rad-hard chips are crucial due to the harsh environment, including exposure to high levels of damaging radiation. New generations of radiation-hardened electronics are expected to revolutionize space-based devices by enabling onboard processing capabilities that enhance spacecraft autonomy, artificial intelligence/machine learning applications, and overall reliability.

Furthermore, in the nuclear energy sector, rad-hard chips are vital in making modern atomic power plants safer and more efficient. As the focus shifts towards fusion energy as a cleaner and more powerful alternative to traditional fission reactors, the demand for radiation-hardened electronics is expected to increase over the forecast period.
