Electromagnetic NDT Market CAGR


Nondestructive testing (NDT) is the process of inspecting materials, components and assemblies in order to find discontinuities or differences in their characteristics without damaging the particular system. NDT testing through electric currents or magnetic fields or both to observe the electromagnetic response is termed as Electromagnetic NDT.

he basic principle of working for Electromagnetic NDT is induction of an electric current or magnetic field into a conductive part, after which the response of the material with respect to the induced current is evaluated. These techniques are widely used to detect and measure faults, thickness, electrical conductivity, bond or weld integrity and also to perceive the presence of rebar or metals.

Stringent government regulations regarding safety and environmental issues are currently driving the market for Electromagnetic NDT. Increasing demand for NDT from the verticals such as industrial, oil & gas, automotive and aerospace, mainly for investigating the integrity of equipment and assets, are further strengthening the market growth.

However, factors such as high cost of equipment and technical anomalies are holding back the market growth.

Growth Determinant for the Electromagnetic NDT Market

Key market companies are developing handheld electromagnetic technology with a real-time data stream to aid personnel during important inspections. This is a first-of-its-kind handheld electromagnetic inspection device that combines testing intelligence and extensive industry knowledge into an easily customizable platform. This allows specialists to quickly have access to the key information and assistance they require to execute efficient and highly accurate weld, rotary, and surface inspections in the most complicated industrial contexts. This is estimated to drive the global electromagnetic NDT market growth.

Resistance measurement, the use of triboelectric, electrical conductivity measurement, thermo-electric, exoelectron effects, and other electrical approaches can be employed for NDT. One of the most important categories is 'eddy current testing.' Furthermore, the job of eddy current professionals, who specialize in the electromagnetic modality, is critical, performed in difficult situations, and demands high precision. This is expected to eventually surge the adoption of electromagnetic NDT.

What Steps are Key Market Players Taking for Market Growth?

Key players have strived to expand their global network of professionals in order to operate responsibly and efficiently in global marketplaces, which is likely to bolster the demand for electromagnetic NDT. Furthermore, they aspire to deliver the world's top-performing NDT inspection technology, assisting OEMs, asset owners, and service organizations in increasing productivity, saving lives, and protecting the environment.

Furthermore, they focus on providing sophisticated phased array UT, eddy current array, and other ultrasonic and electromagnetic equipment to important sectors like aerospace, energy, mining, transportation, and power generation, as well as instruments, sensors, software, and robotic solutions. These factors are estimated to expand the global electromagnetic NDT market size.

A market participant launched a powerful new "GE Mentor EM" technology that replaces old procedures and fully leverages the potential of the industrial internet by reducing the need for paper-based service bulletins and onerous manuals. The introduction of this new technology makes eddy current examinations easier, more precise, and faster than previously. This is likely to drive the adoption of electromagnetic NDT.

By simply connecting to a local network to share data, technicians have fast access to essential information, allowing them to download up-to-date processes and procedures and communicate in real-time with level 3 specialists - all straight from the device.

Furthermore, reports may be generated at the moment, directly from the inspection location. The application-specific user interface makes it simple to use in a variety of sectors, including oil and gas, aerospace, power generation, automotive, and manufacturing which is estimated to contribute to the growth of the electromagnetic NDT market share.

Evaluating the qualities of materials, components, and systems is crucial for ensuring the quality and lifespan of engineering and manufacturing processes. Key players' inspection technologies include non-destructive testing (NDT) and non-destructive evaluation (NDE), which operate at the confluence of materials science, sensors, electronics, robotics, and analytics.

NDE methodologies used by the concerned major player's study employ analytical techniques and measuring technology to give a more quantitative evaluation of the status of materials in terms of damage and defects, which is likely to boost the demand for electromagnetic NDT in the forecast period. Market participants' skills, experience, and bespoke facilities contribute to the next generation's development of these technologies and their peripherals.

Furthermore, their focus on inspection technologies is divided into three primary areas: delivery mechanisms for deploying these sensors, data analytics for interpreting sensor data, and sensor development.

Over the years, data processing and probe technology have evolved to the point that eddy current testing is acknowledged as being fast, easy, and accurate. This is expected to propel the global electromagnetic NDT market growth.

By using modern software, manufacturers and service providers may design configurable, on-device inspection workflow apps that give consistent and easy-to-follow instructions for technicians of all levels. By restricting the range of changes available to the operator, the possibility of mistakes is greatly reduced. These gadgets have an ergonomic design, a tiny form factor, and are lightweight, allowing personnel to check more regions quickly and with less strain. All of these variables are expected to increase product demand and expand the global electromagnetic NDT market size.

Market Overview

NDT differs from the other destructive testing techniques. It is used on most of the materials, components and assemblies which are used during operations, as against destructive testing, which has its application limited to few systems.  Destructive tests are generally utilized for examining the physical characteristics of materials such as ductility, tensile strength, yield, impact resistance, fracture toughness and fatigue strength.

On the other hand, NDT are used for discontinuities and differences in material properties, which cannot be effectively traced using destructive testing.

Market Dynamics

Improved sensitivity to small cracks, efficient detection of surface and near surface defects, requirement of minimum part preparation are few of the significant factors driving the growth of Electromagnetic NDT market. Additionally, Electromagnetic NDT enables inspection of complex shapes and sizes of conductive materials, further propelling the adoption of these techniques in the various industry verticals.

However, the Electromagnetic NDT market growth is restrained by the high cost of equipment (which are used at several stages of testing) and lack of skilled technicians. Additionally, technical limitations encountered during Electromagnetic NDT have compelled the industry to look out for the alternatives, in turn restraining the market growth.

Some of these limitations include accurate inspection of conductive materials only, significant interference of surface finish, limited depth of penetration, and mandatory requirement of roughness reference standards for setup.  

Growing demand of ensuring product reliability, maintain a uniform quality level and lower production costs, during manufacturing and fabrication stages, across various industries is expected to drive the growth of the Electromagnetic NDT market during the forecast period.

Additionally, technological advances in the field of electromagnetism and related NDT techniques have increased its deployment in in complex industry operations. For instance, Electromagnetic NDT are being readily used in the inspection of reactor vessels of nuclear power plants, which earlier utilized ultrasonic techniques.
