Outsourcing of non-destructive testing operations to third-party vendors and emergence of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) are additional factors propelling the growth of this market. However, the non-destructive testing market faces a series of challenges with respect to high cost of advanced non-destructive testing equipment and lack of skilled technicians.
The non-destructive testing market is estimated to be USD 15.06 billion in 2016 and is projected to reach USD 24.23 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 8.24% from 2016 to 2022. The non-destructive testing market is witnessing growth due to increasing demand for new infrastructures and the growing need to renovate the existing aging infrastructure.
Based on end user, the oil & gas segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the non-destructive testing market in 2016. The aerospace & defense segment of this market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2022, owing to the extensive use of non-destructive techniques to detect flaws and imperfections in aerospace components.
Moreover, factors such as safety, increased service intervals, reducing tolerance to disruption, low emission targets, and innovative materials have further contributed to the increased demand for non-destructive testing techniques in the aerospace & defense sector.
Based on component, the non-destructive testing market has been segmented into equipment and services. The services segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the non-destructive testing market in 2016.
The equipment segment of this market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2022, owing to increased quality awareness and the subsequent rise in demand for highly advanced products.
Based on method, the non-destructive testing market has been segmented into visual inspection, magnetic particle testing, liquid penetrant testing, ultrasonic testing, radiography, and eddy-current testing. The visual inspection segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the non-destructive testing market in 2016.
The ultrasonic testing segment of this market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2022. Ultrasonic testing is used to measure the thickness of a wide range of metallic and non-metallic materials, and it is applicable in varied industries such as steel, manufacturing, aluminum construction, infrastructure, and power generation.
