Inorganic Scintillators are crystals grown in high temperature furnaces and are made of Alkali Halides (i.e., NaI, CsI) or Oxides (i.e., BGO), etc. They have scintillation properties by virtue of their crystalline structure. This structure creates the energy bands between which electrons can jump up to higher energy levels by excitation through ionizing radiation or down to lower energy levels by de-excitation through the emission of (visible) photons. The result is known as the scintillation effect.
Some crystals need activators to enable scintillation emission in the visible part of the spectrum. An example of such an activator is Thallium (Tl), which is used in the best known and most frequently used Inorganic Scintillator: NaI(Tl).
The market volume of inorganic scintillators is related to downstream demand and global economy. Although there will always be some uncertainties in the global economy in the following years, people’s requirement of health and safety is increased, it is surely forecasted that the market of inorganic scintillators is still promising.
The global inorganic scintillators industry markets mainly concentrate in United States， Europe, Japan and China. And the market is supplied by a combination of large multinational firms and smaller local companies. The leading global firms include Saint-Gobain Crystals, Hamamatsu, Photonics, Hitachi Metals, Toshiba Materials, Nuvia, Radiation Monitoring Devices, EPIC Crystal and others. These companies tend to compete against each other globally to supply most of the largest inorganic scintillators markets. In many markets, these leading global firms also face competition from local players.
The global market of inorganic scintillators has mainly been driven by its downstream industry, the demand of inorganic scintillators in radiation detection, medical imaging and other field is larger and larger owing to the increased requirement of health and safety. Economic investment and national policies are also the main growth catalysts for the market.
