Energy-dispersive XRF Analyzers Gaining Ground

XRF analyzers, according to the report, will continue to enjoy soaring sales within manufacturing industries as they support easy operation, precise functioning, quicker turnaround time, and most importantly, non-invasive analysis.

Some of the key applications of XRF analyzers include the determination of several precious metals and metal alloys, in addition to the examination of mining exploration areas and detection of hazardous chemicals. Technological advancements such as radiation safety, proximity sensors, enhanced detection limits, high-resolutions, and high-count rate are prominently assisting the growth of XRF analyzer market.

As suggested by FMI’s research, more than half of the XRF analyzer sales are of energy-dspersive type. Although wavelength-dispersive XRF analyzers have their own set of advantages, energy-dispersive XRF analyzers are more preferred across industries owing to their functional versatility and efficiency in terms of space, price, and sample preparation times.

Substantial Opportunities Lie in Metal & Mining, and Oil & Gas

According to FMI’s analysis, a majority of XRF analyzer adoption will prevail in metal & mining industry, followed by the pharmaceutical industry. Oil & gas industry is also cited as one of the key end-use industries for XRF analyzers in the near future.

With steady growth of the mining industry and resurgence of the oil & gas industry, it is highly likely that the demand for instruments such as XRF analyzers will prevail at a significantly high pace in coming years. Metal & mining, collectively with oil & gas, are likely to account for more than 45% of the total demand for XRF analyzers that has been estimated for 2019.

In the wake of waning popularity of benchtop XRF analyzer instruments that are subsequently leading to their dwindling sales, the market has been witnessing soaring preference for the high convenience offered by handheld/portable XRF analyzers. According to the report, portable or handheld XRF analyzers currently account for nearly 65% of overall sales and are anticipated to demonstrate healthy growth potential through years to come.

The report opines that key features such as light weight, portability, and convenient usage will continue to attract more sales opportunities for portable or handheld XRF analyzers to use on field, over the benchtop variants.
