Geiger-Mueller counters (GM counters or Geiger counters) are particle detectors that are used to measure ionizing radiation, which is produced in a low-pressure gas in a Geiger-Mueller tube. They detect the emission of nuclear radiation i.e. alpha particles, beta particles, or gamma rays at the nuclear power plants. Each detected particle further produces a pulse of current. These detectors are composed of two main parts, namely, the Geiger-Mueller tube, and the processing & display electronics. A Geiger-Mueller tube is filled with inert gases such as helium, neon, and argon.

Geiger-Mueller counters are preferred as they are economical, portable, and durable. These can also be easily used in the form of hand-held survey meters, which is their key advantage over proportional counters. The report identifies Canberra Industries, Inc. (U.S.), Mirion Technologies, Inc. (U.S.), Landauer, Inc. (U.S.), Ludlum Measurements, Inc. (U.S.), among others as key players in this market.
Personal dosimeters (dosimeters) are devices used by people who work in close contact with sources of harmful radiations. These devices monitor and measure doses of ionizing radiations such as gamma rays, X-rays, and beta particles in the fields of radiology, nuclear medicine, and radiation oncology. Personal dosimeters are worn or carried by individuals. The most commonly used personal dosimeters are of three types, namely, film badges, thermo luminescent dosimeters (TLDs), and optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) dosimeters
Personal dosimeters are extremely handy and are available in the form of either badge or ring. Technological advancements such as the advent of optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) technology, which offers high accuracy in measuring low radiation doses, are driving the growth of the market. Noteworthy players in the Radiation Detection Monitoring Market include Landauer, Inc. (U.S.), Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. (U.S.), Canberra Industries, Inc. (U.S.), Mirion Technologies, Inc. (U.S.), and Ludlum Measurements, Inc. (U.S.).
