The global particle accelerators market was valued at USD 4,030.3 million in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 6,917.4 million by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 7.4% during the forecast period. Increasing adoption of particle accelerators are anticipated to drive the market during the forecast period. The particle accelerators market is segmented into types, applications, and regions.
Particle accelerators are machines, which are used for accelerating elementary particles, including electrons or protons, to high energies. These machines use electromagnetic fields for boosting the charged particle to high energies and speeds and contain them in particular beams. Electrostatic and electrodynamic (or electromagnetic) accelerators are two basic classes of accelerators.
At an initial stage, particle accelerators produce beams of charged particles for different research purposes. Linear accelerators and circular accelerators are two types of particle accelerators. Linear accelerators are used to propel particles along a straight, linear, or beam line. They are used in fixed-target experiments. Circular accelerators push particles around a circular track and are used for both fixed target experiments and colliding beam.
