Non-destructive testing equipment is used for evaluation and inspection of various properties of materials, components, and assemblies. As the name suggests, these equipment do not alter, or cause any damage to the materials that are subjected to evaluation.
Non-destructive testing equipment are deployed to determine the properties of materials and constructions in terms of ductility, ultimate tensile strength, impact resistance, fracture toughness and fatigue strength. Non-destructive testing equipment sustains a uniform quality level and lowers the cost of production. Since Non-destructive testing equipment does not permanently alter the article being inspected, it is a highly valuable technique that can save both money and time in product evaluation, research, and troubleshooting. The various Non-destructive testing equipment methods include ultrasonic, magnetic particle, radiographic, liquid penetrant, eddy current testing, remote visual inspection, low coherence interferometry, etc.
Global Non-destructive Testing Equipment Market: Drivers
Increasing safety regulations for quality control, safety and reliable performance of machines are driving the adoption of Non-destructive testing equipment in end-use industries. Focus on improving the quality and longevity of the materials is also driving the growth of the market. Focus on maintaining quality and preventing breakdowns have also led to increased adoption of Non-destructive testing equipment in end-use industries. Advancement in electronics, robotics, and automation and development of user-friendly software have made these equipment more appealing to end-users. Incorporation of Non-destructive testing equipment has shown to reduce maintenance and repair costs in the long run, fuelling their demand from end-use industries.
Global Non-destructive Testing Equipment Market: Restraints
Although Non-destructive testing equipment offers good ROI in the long run, high initial investment is a deterrent for many organisations. Lack of product knowledge and skilled manpower continue to be a challenge for the adoption of these machines.
