With technological innovations the increasing demand for the knowledge of micro particles, radiation detection and monitoring devices is served by scintillators. Knowledge of subatomic particles provides knowledge at molecular and atomic level, which has its applications in sectors where sensing is needed. Scintillators, exhibiting luminescence, when used in conjunction with detectors provides information about things by studying their molecular structure. The electrical pulse generated by the absorption of the light wave by the detector, yields important information about the micro particles under study.
Scintillators, thus, has its major applications in medical and experimental sectors. The study of nuclear particles yield information about the material at subatomic particle, which gives the information about the age, structural alignment etc. of the material. The information provided by scintillators is used to carry out experiments and gain the required knowledge.
Scintillators Market: Drivers and Restraints
The increasing number of nuclear power plants increases the demand for nuclear particle and radiation detectors, which acts as a driver for the global scintillators market. The cost effectiveness of scintillators also increases the adoption of scintillators. In addition to that, scintillators has applications in multiple sectors.
The non-proportionality between the input and the output results does not result in a 100% efficiency and a rather distorted result. This acts as a restraint for scintillators market. In addition to that, the detectors work under a specified spectral range, which limits the complete functionality of the scintillators.
Global ScintillatorsMarket: Market Segmentation
Global Scintillators Market can be divided into three segments: by type, by applications and by region.
Segmentation on basis of Type for ScintillatorsMarket:
The major segments of Scintillators market on basis of type include:
Organic scintillators: In Organic type scintillators, the luminescence decays in a few nanoseconds. A plastic or a liquid scintillator is produced when organic scintillators are dissolved in an organic solvent.
