Global Particle Accelerators market has been segmented based on by types, applications, and regions. In terms of types, the global Particle Accelerators is categorized as low-energy particle accelerator and high-energy particle accelerator. On the basis of applications, the market is segmented into healthcare, research institutes, and industrial. Based on regions the global Particle Accelerators market is segmented as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa (MEA).

Particle accelerators produce a beam of charged particles that are used for different research purposes. This beam of particle contains electrons, protons, and charged subatomic particles. Sometimes, uranium or gold, which are whole atoms of elements, are used. Particle accelerators are used by many scientists for studying the origin of universe, the sub atomic structure across the globe, advance research in healthcare, medicine, environmental clean up, and others.

The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively affected the Particle Accelerators market across the globe. Manufacture of particle accelerators was affected during the pandemic, due to restrictions and closure of global industries. Import and export of particle accelerators were affected majorly, due to transport restrictions in North America.

This, in turn, impeded the growth of the market. The supply chain management is facing difficulties, due to COVID-19. Biotechnological and pharmaceutical companies are working along with governments to control the COVID-19 outbreak by helping in vaccine development and addressing medicine supply chain challenges. Demand for particle accelerators increased during the pandemic, due to closure of manufacturing units during the lockdown. This, in turn, impeded the growth of the market. Governments imposed various restrictions on trade and commerce, which affected various sectors negatively. Globally, the government imposed lockdowns, which negatively affected the market.

As per Growth Market Reports industry analyst Raksha Sharma and Sakshi Bhoyar, “The global Particle Accelerators market is anticipated to witness significant growth during forecast period 2021-2028. Low-energy particle accelerators are widely used for the treatment of breast cancer, which is expected to fuel the segment. The healthcare segment is expected to hold a large share of the market, owing to the growing number of cancer patients, which increases the use of particle accelerators for treatment purposes. The Particle Accelerators market is fragmented with the presence of a medium and large-sized players, which in turn, is creating a moderate level of rivalry among manufacturers. The market is driven by rising research and development activities and increasing application of particle accelerators.
