Non-Destructive testing is a group of tests and techniques, which are used in various industries to evaluate the condition of the components or system without causing any sort of damage. This technique is also defined by several other terms like non-destructive examination, inspection and evaluation. This testing technique does not alter or interfere with the physical existence of the components and systems. It is the biggest advantage of this system, which makes it highly popular amongst various industries across the globe. The nondestructive testing equipment market is largely driven by this feature, which also holds crucial key for the success of these products in the days to come.
Non-destructive testing, which is abbreviated as NDT is helps the examination of various flaws in a product, device, component or body part, without causing any sort of internal or external harm to them. This is the most cost effective way to evaluate potential flaws in a variety of industries. The equipments work based on some established and most effective technologies such as ultra sound testing, eddy current testing, radiography testing, low coherence interferometry, etc. The most common use of this technology is in the arts, medicine and engineering industries. This method is either applied on sampling basis or for all the objects or materials in that particular quality control system of the production.
Non-Destructive Testing Equipment Market is booming in various developing regions such as North America, Europe and Australia. However, various developing regions of the world are showing rapid progress in this industry, creating great wave of opportunities and profit on global level. Success and technological advancements in the infrastructural sector has created great opportunities for this market and products to grow in size and sales. Industries like medicine, art, forensic engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, civil and system engineering and aeronautical engineering have great scope of usage for these equipments.
Segmentation of the NDT market is interesting. It is based on the technologies, verticals and geographical locations according to the demand for these products. Ultrasonic, electromagnetic, eddy current, radiography and thermography are the common technologies used for these equipments. While manufacturing, automotive, aeronautical, aerospace, petrochemical and power generation, are the common verticals for the nondestructive technologies. According to the recent market research reports for the NDT equipment market, the market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 8.0%. According to this estimate, the market will reach past USD 2200 million by the end of 2018.
Strong government regulations, continuous technological advancements, user-friendly software programs, cost effectiveness and assured returns of the investment are the crucial drivers for the nondestructive equipment market. However, growing infrastructural demands will serve as the major challenge to maintain the demand supply ratio in the market.
