Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) Market Is Expected To Reach A Value Of Usd 15.2 Billion By 2031

Industry Insights

A recently published report by Fact.MR reveals that the global non-destructive testing market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6% during the forecast period (2021-2031), expected to surpass US$ 15 Bn by the end of the said timeframe. Surging demand for enhanced accuracy, cost efficiency, and non-intrusive testing to evaluate the properties of materials or components across industries will drive the demand for non-destructive testing.

Historical data reveals that the market experienced steady growth, registering a CAGR of 4% between 2016 and 2020. Prospects took a backseat amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, given major contractions experienced in the global manufacturing sector. By the 2nd quarter of FY 2020-21, global manufacturing output declined by over 10%, limiting uptake of NDT to a major extent. However, with an anticipated recovery rate of over 7% in 2021, prospects will eventually rebound.

Competitive Landscape

Some of the key players in the market include General Electric, Nikon Metrology NV, Olympus Corp., Zetec Inc., Eddyfi, Fisher Technologies Inc., Ashtead Technology Ltd., Mistras Group Inc., Yxlon International GmbH, and Sonatest Ltd.

  • In May 2021, Nikon Metrology’s industrial micro focus X-ray CT inspection solutions announced a new offset CT reconstruction algorithm to deliver unrivaled scan speed and image resolution. When using X-ray CT (computed tomography) for non-destructive quality control of larger components like aluminum castings or battery modules for electrical vehicles, the challenge is to shorten inspection cycle times without compromising resolution.
  • In August 2021, Eddyfi Technologies/NDT announced the initiation of a definitive agreement to acquire Zetec, a subsidiary of Roper Technologies Inc. Expected to close by the year-end, the acquisition will permit Eddyfi to extend their market coverage through innovation and a customer-focused approach
