The Global Radiation Hardened Electronics Market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of around 4.1% during the forecast period, i.e., 2022-28, says MarkNtel Advisors. Radiation-hardened electronics are widely used in industries to protect devices from extreme radiation exposure. Radiation hardening is used across the electronic industry to develop components like power-management devices, microprocessors, and solid-state memory that are economical to buy yet strong enough to survive in space for years. 

Moreover, the surge in Intelligence, Surveillance, & Reconnaissance (ISR) operations and the booming demand for electronic components that can withstand radiations in the nuclear power industry & military applications are other crucial aspects expected to drive the market in the coming years. 

The Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Radiation Hardened Electronics Market

  • The COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 amplified the risk & uncertainties among several industries worldwide, and the Global Radiation Hardened Electronics Market was no exception.
  • The US is one the prime importers of semiconductors.
  • High import tariffs owing to China-US trade tensions had a severe impact on the imports of radiation-hardened components in the US.
  • Moreover, the disruptions in the supply chain negatively affected the US-based market leaders and caused supply-demand imbalances.
  • Further, an unexpected halt in production plants also severely impacted the overall market growth.
  • However, in the coming years, the market is likely to witness a slow recovery.

Market Segmentation

By End-User:

  • Space Applications
    • Satellites
    • Launch Vehicles

Of them all, the Space Application is expected to capture the largest market share in the coming years. It owes to the mounting demand for radiation-hardened electronics for TV broadcasting, telephone satellites, nanosatellites & microsatellites, etc., and the surging global requirements for earth observation satellites, space-based military, and agriculture surveillance & monitoring. Radiation protection is a crucial design aspect for electronic components used in space-based applications. 

Satellites need to withstand extreme space environments like rapidly changing temperatures, high-energy particle attacks, satellite body charging effects, and radiations. These dynamics fuel the requirement for highly reliable system components that can overcome the damaging effects, thereby propelling the demand for Radiation-Hardened Electronics for space applications.

By Component:

  • Microprocessors & Controllers
  • Sensors
  • Memory
  • Power Sources
  • Discrete Semiconductors
  • Application Specific Integrated Circuits

Of them all, the demand for Radiation-Hardened Power Sources is projected to witness sturdy growth during 2022-28, mainly due to the rising need for MOSFETs and switches for space & defense applications. Power MOSFETs are used as a highly reliable component in the outer space requirements since they pose excellent durability characteristics against ionizing radiations & high-energy-charged particles.

Additionally, power supplies in space applications require enhanced components to tolerate extreme solar & electromagnetic effects and particle interactions. The electromagnetic & solar events degrade the quality & operation of space-based systems. Hence, the demand for radiation-hardened Power Sources is expected to increase significantly in the forecast period.

Regional Landscape:

  • North America
  • South America
  • Europe
  • Middle East & Africa
  • Asia Pacific

Here, North America attained the largest market share in recent years. Being an ardent user of satellite-based communication systems, the US is the major contributor to the regional market growth. It owes to the development of integrated technology for making advanced weapons that use radiation-hardened electronics to increase resistance against damage.

Besides, the extensive presence of leading defense & space research institutes in the country is another crucial factor driving the regional market. In addition, the US is investing massively to upgrade fabrication facilities for making radiation-hardened chips used in the nuclear arsenal. It is spending up to $170 million to improve the ability of SkyWater Technology Foundry in Bloomington, Minn, to enhance its radiation-hardened-chip line for the requirements for the Defense Department.

Market Dynamics

Key Drivers

Rising Demand for Radiation Hardened Electronics in Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance Operations through 2028

The defense sector depends on electromagnetic radiation mainly for various Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) applications like Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) & missile early warning. Using electromagnetic radiation helps the military enable communications, navigation, radar, and non-intrusive inspection of aircraft & other equipment.

The increasing ISR operations in the military to monitor & handle the actions of enemies is the prime aspect expected to drive the Global Radiation-Hardened Market in the coming years. To make an ISR operation successful, all systems used in the process should be of high quality & exceptionally reliable. Hence, the demand for radiation-hardened electronics is burgeoning rapidly since they are preferred profoundly for space, military, & maritime applications during ISR operations.

Possible Growth Challenges

  • High costs associated with the development and testing of Radiation Hardened Electronics
  • Increasing demand for customization from high-end customers for military & space missions
