XRF analyzers determines the chemistry of a sample by measuring the fluorescent X-ray that is emitted from a sample when it is excited by a primary X-ray source. XRF spectrometer does not require use of gases, liquids, expensive acids, and fume hoods to operate, which allows the instrument to be placed in production facility, right next to the production line for at-line process control. Also, the instruments are easy to install and operate.

Global X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) Market: Market Dynamics  

Initial set-up costs for ICP and AAS is comparatively higher than that for XRF technology, owing to costs incurred on instrument and infrastructure of the former two technologies. Other costs incurred on ICP and AAS include that for gases, acids, and electricity to operate the instruments. Lower cost of XRF devices permits multiple measurements throughout the lifecycle of a material or component for performing live verification. Advantages of X-ray fluorescence (XRF) over inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP) and atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) are expected to be major factors driving the market growth.

Moreover, technical advancements of X-ray fluorescence (XRF) especially in micro-XRF instruments for elemental mapping - wherein, coaxial cameras and piezoelectric stages facilitate precise positioning - and silicon drift energy dispersive X-ray detectors that are capable of processing at very high count rates (100k-500k cps) and providing high resolution imaging is expected to further drive market growth in future.

However, XRF also cannot be used to determine Beryllium content, which is a distinct disadvantage when measuring alloys or other materials that might contain Beryllium, and is expected to hamper growth of the target market to a certain extent.

Several advancements in XRF-related technologies such as total-reflection XRF (TXRF) and micro-calorimeters and transition edge sensor (TES) X-ray detectors, can create potential revenue opportunities for players in the target market. These advancements will help to overcome various limitations related to XRF regarding the age and calibration of instruments, costs of setting up, matrix effects to be considered, and the stringent sets of standards
