The main purpose of an x-ray machine is to detect products which are packed in metalized films or packed in cans. In a flow of various products passing through a given point the x-ray inspection system detect pieces of glass, metals such as steel, iron, stainless steel and along with this plastics such as PVC, nylon, and Teflon. X-ray inspection system instead of using visible light uses x-rays as its origin. X-ray inspection system holds a wide range of application in various industries and other private or government sectors. These systems have the capability to detect inconsistencies, defects and contaminants of a product. An x-ray beam is preceded through the material that is to be inspected and on the other side of the material a photodiode array catches the radiation that passes through the material. After that the photodiodes releases a current or voltage signal relying on the level of x-ray that gets detected and is then transformed into a grayscale image which is easily saved. Additionally, integration of modern technologies from computers, sensors and communication fields has made this system safe, and easy to use. Moreover, the rise in growth of industries, airports and as such is expected to fuel the market growth for x-ray inspection system during the projection period.
Along with this, many food industries have already installed x-ray inspection system to detect contaminants present in food which in result has resulted in the growth of this market. Moreover, among the different types of x-ray inspection machines, the digital radiography (DR) is of most common use in industries. The working of DR machines is as such where a digital x-ray sensor is used instead of photographic film. Furthermore, speed of inspection and improving the quality by DR machines is also driving the growth for x-ray inspection system. Additionally, x-ray imaging provides high speed capability, repeatability and superior precision which are expected to enhance the market growth for x-ray inspection system during the forecast period of 2017-2025.
Major applications of x-ray inspection system covered in report are airports, state borders, seaports, food industry and others. The x-ray inspection system market in report is segmented by type which includes flat panel detector (FPD) integrated system, digital radiography (DR) machines, computed tomography. Moreover, on the basis of end-user the report has been segmented as industrial/scientific, automotive, electronics, aerospace and others. The global x-ray inspection system market has been moreover segmented geographically into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa and Latin America.
X-ray inspection system is a new kind of technology and is expected to grow at a high rate with the increase in industries, healthcare sector across the globe. X-ray inspection system will be one of the major trends to gain traction in this market in the upcoming years. X-ray inspection machines are widely used in food industries for different application needs such as detection of contaminants or inconsistencies present in food. In several countries, the rapid increasing demand for x-ray inspection machines for safety purposes is augmenting the growth of x-ray inspection system.
Some of the major players in the x-ray inspection system market are Nikon Metrology, North Star Imaging, Nordson, Ishida, YXLON International, GE Measurement & Control.
