In terms of revenue, the global X-ray tube market was valued at $2604.05 million in 2021 and is estimated to reach $3676.36 million by 2030, progressing with a CAGR of 3.81% during the forecast period of 2022 to 2030. The market study has also analyzed the impact of COVID-19 on the global X-ray tube market qualitatively as well as quantitatively.

X-ray tubes refer to vacuum tubes that convert the input power (electrical) to X-rays. The field of radiography, which involves using penetrating radiation to image partially opaque objects, was formed as a result of the availability of controllable sources of X-rays. Unlike other ionizing radiation sources, an X-ray tube can only create X-rays while it is powered.

Furthermore, some of the main uses of X-ray tubes include CT scanners, luggage scanners at airports, material and structure analysis, X-ray crystallography, and industrial inspections.

Key growth enablers of the global X-ray tube market:

  • Need for quality control in the manufacturing industry
    • Quality control is a production technique used to ensure that customers receive products that are free from faults and meet their expectations. However, if done incorrectly, the process may endanger customers.
    • Aligning with this, quality control is one of the most crucial components of the manufacturing sector since it guarantees the caliber of a product. Numerous regulations call for the production process to be monitored for quality, as well. Hence, the need for quality control via X-ray testing in the manufacturing industry plays a vital role in fueling the global X-ray tube market growth.
  • Increased demand from the healthcare industry
  • Growth in the aerospace & defense sector

Key growth restraining factors:

  • Stringent regulations
    • Manufacturers of X-ray imaging equipment must either follow Electronic Product Radiation Control (EPRC) rules and procedures or provide a declaration of conformance to the corresponding International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standard.
    • According to the FDA, industry adherence to particular IEC standards would grant, at the very least, the same level of protection for the public’s health and safety from electronic radiation as specific EPRC regulatory standards.
    • Companies that produce, repackage, re-label, and/or import medical devices are subject to regulation by the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CRDH). Additionally, the CRDH also oversees the regulation of both medical and non-medical electronic items that generate radiation, such as X-ray machines. As a result, stringent regulations may likely hamper the growth of the market during the forecast years.

Global X-Ray Tube Market | Top Trends

  • Technological advancements and innovations
    • Since the invention of X-ray tubes, substantial advancements have been made to accomplish a variety of purposes. These include shorter exposure times, repeated exposures, the ability to support high loads, and improved tube life.
    • This has been made possible by the presence of different focal points, such as anodes that rotate more quickly, better anode disc materials, or swapping out glass envelopes for metal and ceramic.
  • Usage of X-ray technology at airport security
    • In order to guarantee that flights arrive at their destinations safely, airport security screenings are designed to stop potentially dangerous items from entering the aircraft.
    • As a result, before entering the gate area, all passengers must pass through a metal detector, with both hand luggage and checked luggage being subject to X-ray inspection.
  • X-ray tube applications in automotive manufacturing
    • X-ray equipment, including X-ray testing, are primarily employed in the car manufacturing industry for the improvement of quality control and traceability while lowering waste.

Also, engineering materials can be penetrated by X-ray radiation, thus facilitating inspection systems to image and measure hidden features.
