The “Global Non-Ionizing Radiation/EMF Detection, Measurement, and Safety Market, By Detector (High-frequency, Low-frequency and Others), By Device Type (Personal monitoring device, Handheld monitoring device and Area monitoring device) , By  End-use Industry (Residential, Healthcare, Military and Homeland Security, Manufacturing, Laboratory and Education, Telecommunications and Others), and by Region (North America, Latin America, Europe, APAC and Middle East & Africa) - Global Forecast to 2027”, is expected to be valued at US$ 84,649.0 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.0 % during the forecast period (2019-2027), as highlighted in a report published by Coherent Market Insights.


Electromagnetic field (EMF) detectors is a device used for measurement of the ambient electromagnetic field. The use of EMF detectors in both the domestic and industrial sectors has increased, in order to prevent the risks associated with the exposure of this radiation. Furthermore, non-ionizing radiations are similar electromagnetic radiations that do not contain enough energy to ionize atoms, in order to completely remove an electron from a molecule. However, these radiations have sufficient energy for excitation, which is the movement of an electron to a higher energy state. The application of non-ionizing radiation detectors in the health care and military and homeland security sectors has increased significantly in the recent past.

The global non-ionizing radiation/EMF detection, measurement, and safety market was valued for US$ 57,418.6 Mn in 2019 is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.0% during the forecast period.

Market Driver

Rising awareness regarding adverse effects of radiations is expected to boost the global non-ionizing radiation/EMF detection, measurement, and safety market growth during the forecast period

Electromagnetic radiations have serious adverse effects on human health. These radiations can affect the body’s nervous system function and can cause severe damage to cells. Moreover, unusual growth of cells and cancer are symptoms of very high EMF exposure. Other symptoms include insomnia and sleep disturbance. EMF detectors can help in detecting and measuring surrounding EMF radiation, thereby enabling users to contain it as much as possible.  Furthermore, rising use of consumer electronics such as mobile, tablet, and laptop has increased EMF radiations across the globe. Therefore, rising awareness regarding adverse effects of EMF radiations is expected to support growth of the global non-ionizing radiation/EMF detection, measurement, and safety market over the forecast period.

Market Opportunity

Increasing demand for handheld devices is expected to present lucrative growth opportunities

There are various types of radiation detection devices available in the market, including personal monitoring devices, handheld devices, and area monitoring devices. Of these devices, handheld devices are being majorly preferred by end users. These devices are easy to use and sophisticated to handle. Furthermore, constant developments in these devices are expected to boost the demand for the same thereby major business opportunities in the near future.

Market Restraint

Challenges involved in technological adoption are expected to restrain growth of the global non-ionizing radiation/EMF detection, measurement, and safety market during the forecast period

Government regulations related to exposure to radio-frequency and other non-ionizing radiation makes it essential to manufacture products with appropriate sensitivity and accuracy standards. Non-ionizing radiation detection and measurement equipment manufacturers have to develop products to cater to new technology and to meet diverse end-use requirements. Need for continuous R&D investment in order to adapt to new technologies and varying consumer requirements, while abiding by the regulations mandated, impacts the costs incurred on product development, subsequently affecting the profit margins of manufacturers. Thus, these factors are expected to restrain growth of the global non-ionizing radiation/EMF detection, measurement, and safety market in the near future.
