Market Overview:

The global industrial X-ray film market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The market growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for industrial X-ray films from various end-use industries, such as electronic components, composite materials, castings, welding and others. In addition, the growing adoption of digital radiography is also contributing to the growth of the global industrial X-ray film market. However, factors such as high installation and maintenance costs are restraining the growth of this market. On the basis of type, screen type films accounted for a larger share in 2017 and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. Non-screen type films are projected to grow at a higher CAGR owing to their advantages over screen type films in terms of resolution and contrast ratio.

Global Industrial X-ray Film Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Industrial X-ray film is a type of film used for industrial purposes, such as inspecting objects for defects. It is important because it allows workers to see hidden defects in objects that may not be visible to the naked eye.

Screen Type Films:

The global screen type films market size was valued at USD 4.5 billion in 2015 and is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to its increasing usage in industrial x-ray film applications. The growing demand for high resolution, enhanced performance, and low maintenance films are anticipated to drive industry growth over the next seven years.

Non-Screen Type Films:

Non-screen type films are used in the manufacturing of X-ray film. It is a base material that acts as a carrier for the image forming chemicals and has no optical properties of its own. The most commonly used non-screen type film is polyester, which can be recycled and reused. Polyester has high resistance to chemicals, such as developer, fixer and wash; this makes it suitable for use in x-ray films.

Application Insights:

The others application segment includes the use of x-ray films for security purposes, medical applications and general industry. The electronic components application segment is expected to be at a significant advantage over other segments owing to its ability to detect cracks in semiconductor devices and circuit boards. This is expected to drive product demand from this end-use industry over the forecast period.

X-rays are an essential tool in material science as they provide information about crystal structure, chemical composition and physical properties such as density and refractive index. They have wide applications across various industries including electronics & semiconductors, automotive & transportation equipment manufacturing materials testing laboratories etc., which is anticipated to fuel market growth during the forecast period.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to rising investments in various industrial sectors such as automotive, aerospace & defense, consumer electronics, etc. In addition, increasing demand for high-quality products from emerging economies such as China and India is anticipated to drive the market growth over the forecast period.

The presence of a large number of manufacturers coupled with low labor costs has attracted numerous OEMs manufacturing different types of components in Asia Pacific region. This trend is projected to continue driving component manufacturers toward this region thereby supporting regional market development during the forecast period.

Europe accounted for more than 20% share of global revenue in 2017 owing to growing awareness among consumers regarding health & safety benefits associated with X-ray films across several industries including automotive and electrical equipment manufacturing sector particularly within Germany and U.K.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for industrial x-ray films from the medical industry for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.
  • Growing demand for security and inspection applications in airports, seaports, borders, and other critical infrastructure points.
  • Proliferation of digital radiography (DR) systems that offer superior image quality as compared to traditional film-based systems, which is expected to boost the uptake of industrial x-ray films in the coming years.
  • Rising number of accidents and terrorist attacks across the world that are resulting in increased need for safety and security measures, thereby driving the adoption of industrial x-ray films in various end-use industries such as automotive, aerospace & defense, etcetera .
  • Technological advancements taking place in the field of industrial x-ray imaging that are making these systems more efficient and user friendly
