Radiation Detection Monitoring & Safety Market Worth $466.5 Million by 2020

According to a new market research report "Radiation Detection Monitoring & Safety Market for Nuclear Power Plants, Homeland Security & Defense, Manufacturing Industry (Geiger Counter, Scintillator, Dosimeter, Area Process, Survey Meter, Portal Monitors) - Trends & Global Forecasts to 2020", published by MarketsandMarkets, the global Radiation Detection Monitoring Market is expected to reach $466.5 Million by 2020, growing at a healthy CAGR.

Geiger-Mueller counters (GM counters or Geiger counters) are particle detectors that are used to measure ionizing radiation, which is produced in a low-pressure gas in a Geiger-Mueller tube. They detect the emission of nuclear radiation i.e. alpha particles, beta particles, or gamma rays at the nuclear power plants. Each detected particle further produces a pulse of current. These detectors are composed of two main parts, namely, the Geiger-Mueller tube, and the processing & display electronics. A Geiger-Mueller tube is filled with inert gases such as helium, neon, and argon.

Personal dosimeters (dosimeters) are devices used by people who work in close contact with sources of harmful radiations. These devices monitor and measure doses of ionizing radiations such as gamma rays, X-rays, and beta particles in the fields of radiology, nuclear medicine, and radiation oncology. Personal dosimeters are worn or carried by individuals. The most commonly used personal dosimeters are of three types, namely, film badges, thermo luminescent dosimeters (TLDs), and optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) dosimeters
