Non-destructive Testing (NDT) market is projected to reach USD 24.65 billion by 2025. As per the British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing, more than 25000 inspections are executed on a daily basis both in the factories and on-site in the United Kingdom in order to discover the defects and damage in a wide range of products, plant and structures. Moreover, the report also shows that there are more than 120000 inspectors operating worldwide.
Non Destructive testing covers a variety of non-destructive testing methods and applications
that are used to evaluate the properties of a material, part, product, weld or system. It should also ensure that it shouldn’t affect the integrity of the unit that is currently being investigated.
Due to the increase in automation in the industrial manufacturing and infrastructure sectors, there has been a significant hike in the demand for crack detection and other flaw detections related to porosity, manufacturing disorders and many others. Therefore, adherence to industrial safety norms is one of the major factors that help in driving the growth of the non-destructive testing services market.
Hence it is highly essential for enterprises to
detect faults. Therefore, with the implementation of non-destructive testing, enterprises detect the faults accurately, which leads to the reduction in product and component failure and also in the total amount of costs incurred in the repairs of such components. Not just the reduction in component failure, but Non Destructive testing methods also helps in speeding up the manufacturing process as it detects and eliminates the faults beforehand.
Deviation free fault detection
Another important factor anticipated to propel the market is the technological advancements in the non-destructive testing methods. Thereby through improving the techniques, enterprises have ensured that that there are deviation free fault detection and this has drastically reduced the convolutions involved in the testing procedures.
Moreover, numerous governmental agencies and regional bodies such as the American society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and the International Organization for Standardization have been instituted throughout the globe to take rigorous measures for assuring safety of instruments and overseeing of engineering services testing. The main cause behind this action is to gain clearances and certificates from authorities, which helps in creating a positive impact on the Non Destructive Testing market on a global scale.
Advancements in the ultrasonic technology
The manufacturing industry is anticipated to deploy NDT techniques heavily due to the increasing awareness regarding the use of NDT. Furthermore, the ultrasonic testing equipment market is expected to witness significant growth, which is attributed to the ease of handling the equipment, availability of skilled technicians and accurate fault detection. Therefore, advancements in the ultrasonic technology over the next eight years are expected to increase the adoption of this test procedure owing to its simplicity.
Also projects deploying non-destructive testing techniques get completed in a lesser amount of time. This is due to flaw detections conducted at complex locations and irregular surfaces, which ultimately results in reduction of possibilities of failures.
