Europe Radiation-Hardened Electronics Market to Reach US$ 714.3 Million by 2032, Stimulated by Growing Space Exploration Activities

July 24, 2023 | Aerospace and Defense

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Europe Radiation-Hardened Electronics Market Report by Product Type (Custom Made, Commercial-Off-the-Shelf), Material Type (Silicon, Silicon Carbide, Gallium Nitride, and Others), Technique (Radiation Hardening by Design (RHBD), Radiation Hardening by Process (RHBP), Radiation Hardening by Software (RHBS)), Component Type (Power Management, Application Specific Integrated Circuit, Logic, Memory, Field-Programmable Gate Array, and Others), Application (Space Satellites, Commercial Satellites, Military, Aerospace and Defense, Nuclear Power Plants, and Others), and Country 2024-2032,” the Europe radiation-hardened electronics market size reached US$ 503.6 Million in 2023. Radiation-hardened electronics are robustly designed semiconductor devices that are able to resist damage or malfunctions caused by ionizing radiation, a prevalent issue in space or nuclear environments. Operating in high-radiation conditions, regular electronics face the risk of single-event effects (SEEs), which include single-event upset (SEU), latchup, gate rupture, and burnout, potentially jeopardizing the system's reliability. Radiation-hardened electronics, however, are engineered to tackle these effects, ensuring operational continuity and mitigating radiation-induced disruptions. This is accomplished through numerous techniques, such as material selection, circuit design modifications, and radiation-shielding practices. The significance of these electronics is prominent in critical operations like space missions, nuclear power plant control systems, and military and defense applications. As technology advances, the demand for radiation-hardened electronics is growing, steering further research and development (R&D) into creating devices with enhanced tolerance and improved performance under extreme conditions.

Europe Radiation-Hardened Electronics Market Trends:

The rising focus of governmental and commercial entities on deep-space missions is primarily propelling the Europe radiation-hardened electronics market growth. The European Space Agency (ESA) has been actively participating in numerous exploratory projects, necessitating the extensive use of radiation-hardened electronics to ensure mission success and longevity. Additionally, the region's nuclear power industry is undergoing modernization and expansion, requiring radiation-hardened electronics to ensure safe and efficient operations. As nuclear power continues to serve as a vital element in the energy sector in Europe, the demand for advanced, radiation-resistant components is expected to increase. This is because radiation-hardened electronics play a crucial role in the automation systems of these facilities, where high levels of ionizing radiation are commonplace. Furthermore, the increasing emphasis on bolstering national security infrastructure is facilitating the demand for radiation-hardened electronics in military and defense applications. These electronics are integral to various strategic equipment, including satellites, drones, missile control systems, and other defense communication devices that operate in high-radiation environments. In addition to this, advancements in semiconductor technology and the broader digital transformation trends across industries are creating further opportunities. The ongoing development of high-speed, miniature, and low-power electronics, combined with the increasing reliance on data and connectivity, necessitates the use of robust electronic devices capable of withstanding harsh environments is acting as a major growth-inducing factor. The market is also being driven by the expanding IoT, 5G, and artificial intelligence (AI), which are catalyzing the rising demand for radiation-hardened electronics in Europe. Some of the other factors driving the market include the continuous R&D investments in radiation-hardened electronics to improve their efficiency, reduce their size, and increase their radiation tolerance. This, in confluence with policy support, is facilitating the expansion of the market. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 714.3 Million by 2032, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 3.84% during 2024-2032.
