Global Plastic Scintillating Fibers Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A plastic scintillating fiber (PSF) is a synthetic polymer that emits light when excited by ionizing radiation. PSFs are used in radiation detection and measurement applications such as radiation therapy, nuclear medicine, and homeland security.

Blue Emission Color:

The blue emission color is the result of a photochemical process and it occurs when light is absorbed by the plastic material. The primary factors driving this market are increasing demand for scintillating fibers in various end-use industries such as defense, security, medical and science along with growing research activities related to high performance plastics.

Green Emission Color:

Green emission color is a new term in the plastic scintillating fibers market and it represents the range of colors that can be obtained when light is emitted from plastics. The most common types of plastics used for making scintillating fibers are polyethylene, polystyrene, and polypropylene. Green emission color can be obtained by any type of plastic if exposed to fluorescent light or sunlight.

Application Insights:

The other application segment includes radiation detection, industrial gauging and calorimeters, and real-time imaging systems. The plastic scintillating fibers are used in the real-time imaging systems to provide a non-invasive visual inspection method for identifying flaws or anomalies in various industrial processes such as manufacturing, assembly lines, or transportation.

The use of plastic scintillating fibers for industrial gauging enables the measurement of small distances with high accuracy. Plastic fiber optics are also used in calorimeters to determine the heat flow from one body part to another during medical procedures such as surgeries or radiographic examinations. These products help enhance safety by providing an accurate determination of heat loss caused due to their ability to detect even the slightest amount of radioactivity through thermal energy emission patterns that can be detected using standard equipment operating at safe levels throughout normal operations.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the leading regional market in 2017 and is expected to maintain its position during the forecast period. The growth of this region can be attributed to increasing demand for advanced medical imaging, rising nuclear power plant activities, and growing industrial gauging applications across various end-use industries.

The plastic scintillating fibers market in Europe is expected to witness considerable growth over the forecast period owing to increasing R&D investments by major companies coupled with government funding for high-end healthcare facilities. In addition, stringent regulations by regulatory bodies such as Health Canada ensure high product quality standards that are further anticipated to drive industry growth over the next eight years.

North America accounted for a significant share of revenue in 2017 owing to technological advancements along with increased focus on real-time imaging systems applications across several end-use industries such as defense & security, oil & gas exploration, law enforcement agencies among others have driven regional demand over last few years.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for radiation therapy in cancer treatment
  • Rising prevalence of cancer and other chronic diseases
  • Growing number of nuclear accidents and terrorist attacks
  • Proliferation of nanotechnology and development of new applications for plastic scintillating fibers
  • Increasing investment in medical imaging
