Steady Growth in Radiation Detection market Thanks to Rising Concerns of Public Safety


Despite having many nondestructive applications, nuclear power is a constant factor of debate. Rising number of nuclear power plants and their numerous applications have increased the risk involved with these plants. Strong web of power plants is also placing greater threat to public safety and health. This is the major reason for the growing radiation detection market. After the 2011 Tsunami induced nuclear tragedy in Fukushima, Japan; the whole world is taking the issue of radiation detection rather seriously as well. As a result, the market for these techniques is expected to maintain steady growth in the coming future. According to the experts, the industry will continue to grow with the growing importance and applications of nuclear power.
