Nondestructive Test Equipment: Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – As a method of testing materials and components for identifying defects, Non-Destructive Test (NDT) Equipment is finding widespread applications in a range of end-use sectors. Petrochemical, aviation and manufacturing industries represent few of the key application areas. Rising incidences of infrastructure failures such as refinery blasts, leakages in nuclear reactors, and pipeline explosions have prompted governments across the globe to enact stringent safety regulations, thus driving increased adoption of NDT equipment.

Several other factors, such as, technology advancements, growing use of machinery, increasing complexity of machines, high cost of machinery failure, stringent product usage specifications, and tight quality control requirements, are also helping drive demand for NDT equipment. Development of nanomaterials, and their use in manufacturing a range of structural equipment, is creating a need for NDT equipment that can perform inspection of such material and structures. Introduction of advanced, user-friendly, automated NDT equipment is resulting in the expansion of NDT equipment into non-traditional end-use markets such as mining and foundry, automotive manufacturing and aftermarket, chemical/refinery industry, transportation, and biomedical.

Ultrasonic, radiography and eddy-current testing equipment represent traditional product markets which have achieved tremendous success over the years. Future growth however is forecast to come from emerging new technologies such as X-Ray computed tomography, phased array ultrasonic and computed radiography Remote visual inspection equipment is also achieving considerable attention, with the aerospace sector especially mandating use of this equipment in a range of applications.

As stated by the new market research report on Nondestructive Test Equipment, Europe represents the largest regional market worldwide. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market with a projected CAGR of 10% over the analysis period.
