This report studies the global radiation protection (detection, monitoring,
and safety) market for medical applications over the forecast period of 2012
to 2017.

Radiation protection is the science of protecting the human population and
environment from the harmful effects of ionizing radiation, such as
electromagnetic and particulate radiations.

The global radiation protection market, on the basis of industry, is
classified into five segments, namely, medical, manufacturing, defense,
nuclear power plants, and homeland security. It is poised to grow at a CAGR of
6.0% to reach $1,231 million in 2017. Radiation protection for medical
applications holds the largest share - 60% - of the global
radiationdetectionmarket .

The radiation protection industry has witnessed a myriad of technological
advancements over the past two decades. It is expected that this trend will
continue in the future in a bid to solve present challenges and fill unmet
needs of the market. Manufacturers have now been focusing on the development
of technologically advanced radiation protection devices and accessories such
as hand-held radiation detectors, lead-free aprons and gloves, and software
applications that are able to provide better protection from exposure to
harmful radiations.

Increasing use of radiation therapy and nuclear medicine in the treatment and
diagnosis of diseases, rising incidences of cancer, growing awareness among
radiation professionals, and technological advancements are the major drivers
propelling the growth of this market. However, a few pivotal factors hindering
growth are lack of proper standardization and calibration protocols for
radiation protection devices, dearth of adequate skills and training among
radiation professionals, and scarcity of raw materials to manufacture
radiation safety accessories.

The key players in the medical protection market are Landauer, Inc. (U.S.),
Mirion Technologies, Inc. (U.S.), Radiation Detection Company (U.S.), Thermo
Fisher Scientific, Inc. (U.S.), AmRay Medical (Ireland), Bar-Ray Products,
Inc. (U.S.), Biodex Medical Systems, Inc. (U.S.), Protech Radiation Safety
(U.S.), ProtecX (U.K.), and UnforsRaySafe AB (Sweden).
