Personal dosimeters segment holds the largest share of the medical radiation detection, monitoring, and safety market.

Radiation through fluoroscopic actions is a major factor for high amount of radioactivity quantity that medical staff is exposed to. Exposure to radiation poses a risk to healthcare employees as well as patients. Radiation protection focuses on reducing any unnecessary radiation exposure and intending to decrease the unsafe impacts of ionizing radiation. Radiation detection, monitoring, and safety products minimize the effects of harmful radiation. Moreover, personal dosimeters will grow significantly in the forecast period as these are used for various applications such as electronic radiation measuring instruments, automated reader instruments, alarm badges, handheld and portable devices. Additionally, rising number of diagnostic and interventional radiological procedures performed and growing awareness about the need for radiation protection among medical professionals are some factors propelling the growth of the segment.


Effect of COVID-19 and growing R&D for technological advancement.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare institutes and professionals were instructed to delay/ cancel elective surgical procedures and medical examinations to slow disease transmission. As a result, many radiology departments experienced a rapid decline in imaging case volume. For instance, a study conducted by Harvey L. Neiman Health Policy Institute between January 2019-April 2020, published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology (JACR), states that the imaging case volume decreased drastically during the pandemic and the decrease varied by location and by modality type, with the most significant declines observed in mammography (94%), nuclear medicine (85%), MRI (74%), ultrasound (64%), interventional radiology (56%), and others. However, the situation is slowly recovering, and extensive research is being conducted in premier institutes, with a focus on the development of new techniques for detecting and measuring radiation exposure during medical procedures. Researchers at the Los Alamos National Laboratory and Argonne National Laboratory developed a new X-ray detector prototype, which revolutionize medical imaging with a considerable reduction in radiation exposure and related health risks as well as improving resolution in security scanners and research applications, according to an article published at Eureka Alert in April 2020.
