Durability Testing systems are used to assess a machine or a material’s performance when subjected to adverse environments such as mechanical trauma, extreme pressure and temperature etc. The process differs from Reliability Tests where a pre-qualified sample is tested in a simulated environment. This process is undertaken as a measure of quality control to guarantee a machine/ material’s performance within its average shelf life before its roll-out, thereby eliminating any related defects or exceptions. These tests also determine the degree of fatigue experienced by machine/ material’s creating space for design improvements to minimize this effect by OEMs. The durability testing systems market has evolved over 5 decades since the inception of automotive and industrial automation equipment to ensure product longevity as well as safety in terms of human interface and use.
Durability Testing Systems Market: Market Dynamics and Trends
The mandatory automotive vehicle safety and crash tests have been a major driver for the Durability Testing Systems market with increased practice of the same by automotive OEMs. Tests accreditations have increased consumer awareness regarding buying appropriate vehicles. The infrastructure and construction sectors also provide ample opportunities for the durability testing systems market with respect to durability testing of construction materials such as concrete with respect to load bearing & shielding capacity from all types of weather. The defence & warfare sector is also anticipated to boost the durability testing systems market where it is used to test the durability of unmanned vehicles and armour in hostile conditions. On the other hand, the high costs involved and relaxation of norms and regulations in regions such as South East Asia etc. can act as a restraint to the Durability Testing Systems market.
The Durability Testing systems market exists as in-house facility in automotive OEMs and external testing locations. The testing systems service providers either have contractual tie up with end customers or take projects on individual basis. Consultants and advisors related to product/ material design have a major role in advocating the use of durability testing systems in the value chain.
