Cobalt-60 Market – Global Outlook and Forecast 2022-2028

3 min read

Cobalt 60 is an isotope of cobalt. The radioactive source of cobalt 60 is widely used in agriculture, industry, medicine and other fields. It can be used for radiation breeding, stimulation of yield increase, radiation control of insect pests, food irradiation preservation and preservation, non-destructive inspection, radiation disinfection, Radiation processing, radiation treatment waste, thickness, density measurement and online automatic control, and radiotherapy for cancer and tumor.


At present, only a few countries in the world, such as Canada, China, and Russia, have cobalt 60 production capacity, and the international market has a bright future. In the mid-1950s the increasing demand for sterile single-use medical devices led to a rapid expansion in the use of gamma irradiation to sterilize products as the technology provided a very effective means of ensuring sterility. Since then the range of applications that benefit from Cobalt-60 irradiation has grown enormously. A diverse array of products are now routinely processed to improve their characteristics and to meet market requirements. Irradiation using Cobalt-60 is an international industry that positively impacts daily on the health and wellbeing of a large proportion of the world’s population.
