A Survey of XRF Users
The otherwise mature XRF market has experienced a revitalization of sorts in terms of addressing the need to satisfy end-user demand in relatively nascent instrument specifications. Users are increasingly reporting a desire for light element analysis capabilities, better and more efficient software, improvements in usability, and upgrades in the quality of pre-calibrated solutions. Handheld XRF instruments are readily supplementing the large shares of benchtop EDXRF and WDXRF instruments, and new users are emerging from non-traditional industries into the financially accessible handheld XRF market.
The market is at a point where hazardous substance testing is now a critical purchase decision, especially in production environments and subsequent regions where lead (Pb) exposure, among other hazardous chemicals, can be common.
This report is divided based on the type of XRF system, including handheld XRF, EDXRF and WDXRF, providing unique perspectives on the basis of technology. Carving a share of the mature XRF market is accessible if one is attuned to the changing needs of end-users. A spectrum of knowledge, including the benefits and drawbacks of particular systems and technologies, places one with a higher degree of leverage towards understanding the current and future state of the market, as well as fosters more structured focal points of product development and support.
