Neutron generators are neutron source devices which contain compact linear accelerators and that produce neutrons by fusing isotopes of hydrogen together. The fusion reactions take place in these devices by accelerating either deuterium, tritium, or a mixture of these two isotopes into a metal hydride target which also contains deuterium, tritium or a mixture of these isotopes. Fusion of deuterium atoms (D + D) results in the formation of a He-3 ion and a neutron with a kinetic energy of approximately 2.5 MeV. Fusion of a deuterium and a tritium atom (D + T) results in the formation of a He-4 ion and a neutron with a kinetic energy of approximately 14.1 MeV. Neutron generators have applications in medicine, security, and materials analysis.
For industry structure analysis, the Neutron Generators industry is relatively concentrated. These manufacturers range from large multinational corporations to small privately owned companies compete in this industry. The top five producers account for above 75 % of the revenue market. Regionally, North America is the biggest revenue area of valves, also the leader in the whole Neutron Generators industry.
North America occupied 41.51% % of the sales market in 2017. It is followed by Europe and APAC (Except Japan), which respectively account for around 24.53% and 18.87% of the global total industry. Other countries have a smaller amount of sales.
For price trend analysis, a key variable in the performance of Neutron Generators producers is raw material costs, specifically the speed at which any increase can be passed through to customers.
Over the next five years, LPI(LP Information) projects that Neutron Generators will register a 12.1% CAGR in terms of revenue, reach US$ 52 million by 2023, from US$ 26 million in 2017.
