X-ray Diffractometer Market: An Insight On the Important Factors and Trends Infl

Posted by Harshad Borde on May 22nd, 2019

A measuring instrument for analyzing the structure of a material from scattering pattern that is produced when a beam of radiation or particles such as X-rays or neutrons interacts with it, is called as a diffractometer. A high-tech, non-destructive technique to analyze a wide range of materials that includes plastic, solar cells, catalysts, metals, fluids, minerals, polymers, ceramics, thin-film coatings, pharmaceuticals and most importantly semiconductors is commonly known as X-ray diffraction. For the purpose of material investigation, characterization and quality control the X-ray deffratometers are being used an indispensable method in industries.

Some of the areas of application for XRD are for quantitative and qualitative phase analysis, crystallography, structure and relaxation determination, texture and residual stress investigations. The X-ray deffractometers made by the different manufacturers can be utilized in different environments, from universities and research institutes to different industrial processes. Most of the diffractometer in material science are based on the reflection geometry where the X-ray source and detector are on same side of sample, the scattered X-ray from the source are reflected of the sample and onto the detector. There are two types of X-ray deffractometer that are X-ray powder diffraction and single-crystal XRD. A powder deffractometer operated with a divergent beam which broadens until it reaches the specimen.

The powdered X-ray deffrectometers are the compact advanced instruments. It has many salient features and new accessories such as variable temperature assembly and humidity chambers that can further expand the horizon of its application by providing the information on effect of temperature and humidity on the nature of material. There are several factors that are that can help the X-ray diffractometer market to grow such as onsite analysis, qualitative XRF capabilities, cost-effectiveness with a low cost of ownership of it. As well as various uses in comprehensive characterization of crystalline samples, determination of unit cell dimensions, and quantitative determination of modal amounts of minerals in a sample. The restraining factor for the market of X-ray diffraction are its size limitations for crystalline substance measurements.

The global X-ray diffractometer market is segmented on the basis of type, applications, and region. On the basis of type, the market has been segmented into X-ray powder diffraction and single-crystal XRD. The X-ray powdered segment are expected to have the highest market share in the forecast period due to its various applications. X-ray powder diffraction is widely used in geology, environmental science, material science, and engineering to rapidly identify unknown crystalline substances. 

In the region wise study, the global X-ray diffractometer market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. Asia Pacific which comprises China, India, South Korea, Australia and other rising economies captured significant market share followed by North America and Europe in 2016. Asia Pacific showed the fastest growth rate during the forecast period due to the emerging economies. China represents huge potential for the X-ray diffractometer with the low cost of raw materials and huge production facilities in the country.

The global X-ray diffractometer market is highly fragmented with number of companies operating in the segment. Leading players are currently focusing on providing cost competitive products to the customers. Some of the key players engaged in X-ray diffractometer market include various manufacturers such as Shimadzu, Wisman, XOS, Cynosure, BRUKER, PERSEE, Marxperts, Anton Paar, Rigaku, STOE, Skytech System, Dynamic Technology Systems, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inel Inc., PANalytical, GNR and INNOV among others.
