Market Insights

Increasing Demand for High-Performance Materials

X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) is a technique, which is used to analyze the surface chemistry of a material. The XPS technique is also known as electron spectroscopy for chemical analysis (ESCA), which is a well-established method for the chemical characterization of material surfaces. The suppliers and manufacturers of both technical and commercial textiles are focusing on developing XPS as an ideal tool to support the optimization and development of the types of surface coating or treatment demanded by the consumers. Polymer meshes, such as polyester and polypropylene, are used for the surgical repair of hernias and other soft tissue defects.

Although there is the use of mesh materials in the surgery, their implantation can be associated with severe infection rates. In order to reduce the infection rates of such meshes, their surface properties have to be improved. Also, many problems associated with modern materials can be solved by understanding the chemical and physical interactions that occur at the interfaces of a material’s layers or surface. The surface will influence such factors as catalytic activity, corrosion rates, wettability, adhesive properties, contact potential, and failure mechanisms. Thus, the rising demand for high-performance materials proportionally upsurges the market for X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy in the forecast period.

Product Type Insights

Product type segments of the x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy market include monochromatic x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and non-monochromatic x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The monochromatic x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy segment captured the largest share in the global X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy market. Monochromatic x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy has an aluminum monochromatic x-ray source that can analyze a wide range of samples. When a monochromator is used, the distance between the X-ray source and the sample is larger than when using a non-monochromatic source, and hence there is less risk of sample damage. Therefore, the monochromatic x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy offers many advantages over the non-monochromatic x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy.
