"Designing Growth Strategies is in our DNA"

Medical Radiation Shielding Market Size, Share and Global Trend By Imaging Equipment (X-Ray, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI),Computed Tomography, Ultrasound, Others), By Product (Building Materials (Sheet Lead, Bricks, Curtain, and Others), Wearables, Others), By End User (Hospitals, Diagnostic Centres, Cancer Centres, Biopharmaceutical Companies, Others) and Geography Forecast till 2030

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI101052 | Status : Ongoing



Medical radiation includes radiation exposure to the patients and healthcare workforce due to radiography systems such as X-Rays, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear imaging and others. All these systems are majorly used by hospitals, dentists, ambulatory surgical centers and diagnostics centers. Certain side effects such as acute radiation sickness, probability of getting affected by cancer, eye damage, chromosome aberration, dermal injury and nervous system damage are caused due to medical radiation.

In order to minimize and prevent medical radiation exposure, certain regulatory authorities such as FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations (IR(ME)R) are formulating strict norms and emphasizing on their implementations.

Regional Analysis

Currently, North America is expected to dominate the global medical radiation shielding market owing to the rising prevalence of disorders due to medical radiation exposures. Moreover, a growing number of diagnostic imaging systems is anticipated to play an important role in higher growth of the global medical radiation shielding market. According to research conducted by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, number of magnetic resonance imaging systems grew by 369 during 2016-2017 in the U.S. alone. The Asia Pacific and Middle East & Africa also hold huge potential for growth of the global medical radiation shielding market owing to growing medical radiation exposure and increasing number of imaging diagnostic systems. Additionally, protection and safety offered by medical shielding equipment is expected to grow the demand for medical radiation shielding during the forecast period.

Key Industry Developments

  • In June 2019, Corning Incorporated got FDA approval for their two products, Corning Med-X Glass and Corning Med-Gamma Glass which can be installed at various radiation prone areas with aim to avoid radiation exposures. 
  • In September 2016, British Institute of Radiology (BIR) launched new radiation safety guidance for healthcare resources with aim to prevent radiation exposure amongst them. The new guidance provides information about radiation shielding methods, shielding materials, and risk assessments.
