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.
