Dosimeter is a device used to measure and monitor the dose of ionizing radiation received by an individual or an object over some time and can detect various types of radiation, including alpha, beta, and gamma rays. Dosimeters come in different types, including film badge dosimeters, thermoluminescent dosimeters, and electronic personal dosimeters which are used in the power & energy, medical, oil & gas, and mining sector to monitor and control radiation exposure to ensure the safety of workers and the public. The growing demand for medical imaging & radiation therapy and increasing nuclear electricity production will boost the demand for dosimeters, thereby propelling their market growth.

The dosimeter market is anticipated to grow due to the rising demand for radiation therapy and medical imaging.

In the field of medicine, various diagnostic and therapeutic procedures involve the use of ionizing radiation, such as X-rays, computed tomography (CT) scans, nuclear medicine imaging, and radiation therapy. These procedures are essential for accurate diagnosis, treatment planning, and effective treatment of various diseases like hemorrhage, blood clots, or cancer. Healthcare professionals, such as radiologists, radiologic technologists, and radiation therapists, wear dosimeters to measure the radiation they are exposed to during their work shifts, thereby enabling them to take necessary precautions to their exposure remains within safe limits. The increase in number of patients getting diagnosed using X-rays and CT scans is driving the demand for dosimeters. According to the National Library of Medicine 2021 data, the total number of patients who were diagnosed using X-rays and CT scans in the USA was 65,858 in 2019, which was an increase of 3.65% from the previous year. The use of ionizing radiation in medical settings poses potential risks to healthcare professionals, patients, and other individuals present in the vicinity. Therefore, dosimeters are extensively used in the medical sector to monitor and assess radiation exposure levels.  According to the National Institute of Cancer in 2023, it was found that exposure to low doses of ionizing radiation used in the medical sector leads to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, and 2.3 to 3.6 deaths per 100 persons were noted who were exposed to one Gy of ionizing radiation.

Growing nuclear electricity production will boost the dosimeter market growth.

Nuclear power is increasingly being considered a viable option due to its low greenhouse gas emissions and high energy output as countries strive to meet their energy demands while reducing carbon emissions. In nuclear power plants, ionizing radiation is produced as a result of nuclear fission reactions. Workers employed in various roles, such as reactor operators, maintenance personnel, and radiation protection specialists, are at risk of radiation exposure during routine operations, maintenance activities, and potential incidents. Dosimeters are essential tools for monitoring and managing the radiation exposures of the workers. The growing electricity production in nuclear power plants will accelerate the demand for dosimeters. According to the World Nuclear Association in 2023, there were about 440 nuclear power reactors operating in 32 countries with a combined capacity of about 390 GWe, and in 2021, these provided 2653 TWh, about 10% of the world's electricity. According to the International  Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the nuclear electricity generating capacity is expected to double up to 792 gigawatts by 2050.

During the forecast period, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to hold a significant market share.

The Asia-Pacific region is anticipated to hold a major market share due to rapid economic growth, rising demand for medical imaging and radiation therapy, and growing nuclear power plants in the region. In 2021, President of China, Xi Jinping pledged to invest $440 billion for the next 15 years to build more than 150 nuclear power stations in China. In 2020, under the Production Linked Incentive (PLI ) Scheme for medical devices was introduced with an outlay of Rs. 3,420 crores with a target to build cancer care /radiotherapy medical devices, radiology & imaging medical devices, and nuclear imaging devices. Such progressive developments will boost the demand for dosimeters, thereby bolstering their regional growth.
