Radiation hardening is a technique of making electronics and semiconductors devices resistant to damage caused by radiation. Radiation hardened devices are primarily used in high altitude applications where radiation could damage functioning of electronic components. Radiation tolerant components are employed in satellite system power supply, switching regulators, and microprocessors in military and space applications. The prevention of gamma radiation and neutron radiation caused by nuclear reactors is possible due to radiation hardened components.Increasing demand for radiation hardened electronics from the communication satellites segment and increasing number of space missions in various countries are driving factors for growth of the market. However, challenge to create actual testing environment and manufacturing & design challenges hinder growth of the market. On the other hand, growing R & D activities at various space stations and demand from commercial and military applications create opportunities in the market.The world radiation hardened electronics and semiconductors market is segmented based on component, manufacturing technique, application, and geography.
