Water Penetration Tester Market

Water Penetration Tester Market : Global Industry Analysis 2016 - 2020 and Opportunity Assessment 2021 - 2031

Market Overview

Water Penetration Testers are designed in such a way that it helps to test the endurance of different materials which are exposed to water.It is intended to measure the water resistance ability or rain penetration resistance of fabrics of high water-proof clothing or exterior fabrics like tents and awnings by means of a hydrostatic pressure test. It is commonly used as a field testing equipment.

It is also used to measure the amount of water that has penetrated in exterior building installations like doors and windows, skylights, walls and others, which can cause considerable damage if not measured properly.  The device is widely used in medical applications to measure the liquid barrier performance for personal protective equipment (PPE). It is fundamentally helpful to locate leaks or determine water depth that has seeped into the material.

Water Penetration Tester Market: Market Dynamics

With the current focusand realized importance of quality assurance in laboratories across the world and shiftedfocuson developments in testing equipment for laboratories, the demands for water penetrating testing equipment are surging. Water Penetration Tester is used across a number of end-use applications where testing is very crucial for the performance of that equipment, system or structure.Prior testing helps to avoid unforeseen damages due to water leakage especially in construction applications. The demand for water testing is becoming common in areas where concern over quality is the top priority.

The adoption of water penetration testers in semi-urban and rural markets is a challenge which isyet to be addressed. The absence of a proper laboratory management infrastructure and quality management training has led to significance quality gaps in the laboratories.

Their appropriate diagnosis and management requires valid standard operating procedures. These facilities often find it cumbersome to hire qualified personnel who can be trained to follow quality control protocols and instrument maintenance controls.These factors are making water penetration testing less common in rural markets.

Many contract manufacturers regard outsourcing to a contract laboratory more beneficial than performing in-house testing. It also provides better credibility of the obtained results, additional testing capacities, and use of secondary testing facilities in extreme weather conditions, focused expertise and cost management. Independent testing and portable testing methods are picking up as personal testing gains importance. These trends are becoming common in the Water Penetration tester market.

The Water Penetration Tester market has a lot of growth opportunities as the concern towards testing and monitoring is rising. There are several test methods specified by industry standards for conducting field tests in water penetration testers. The American Standard for Testing and Materials (ASTM) has independent protocols for testing such as the type of product, the purpose of the test, and the environmental conditions that need to be simulated.

COVID-19 Impact:

The COVID-19 pandemic has disturbed the balance of demand and supply side of all industries but heavily impacted the testing equipment market, which is the parent market for water penetration testers. The water penetration testers market is influenced by several end-use industries which determine that itsprogress is bound to improve post-pandemic.

The impact created a slowdown in 2020 but the new avenues for product innovation will open and create fruitful opportunities for market participants. Amidst the backdrop of limited resources, testing equipment management and maintenance was neglected.For the developing countries, donations through aid organizations, and investments by government bodies proved to be fruitful in addressing maintenance problems.However, funds could only maintain testing systems and not help to produce reliable testing results. As a result, there was a considerable loss in this area of operation.

Water Penetration Tester Market: Segmental Overview:

In terms of equipment type, portable Water Penetration Testersegment is considered to be the major contributor for the growth of the Water Penetration Tester market. The portable tester can be used in all types of field environments and it can be easily carried to the desired location and remote areas.
