Non-Destructive Testing and Inspection Market by Technique (Projector, Mirror, Motor & Position Sensor, Others), Method, Service, Vertical, Region Global Industry Analysis, Market Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2019 to 2026


New Jersey, NJ, Nov. 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Technological improvements in non-destructive testing and the rising rate of industrialization and urbanization are two factors which may boost market growth. The global non-destructive testing and inspection market is expected to grow from USD 9.1 Billion in 2018 to USD 19.4 Billion by 2026 at a CAGR of 9.9% during the forecast period 2019-2026, according to the new report published by Fior Markets.

Non-destructive testing equipment is defined as the equipment which is used for evaluation and inspection of various properties of materials, components, and assemblies. This equipment does not change or cause any damage to the materials that are subjected to evaluation. They are used 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.

Technological improvements in non-destructive testing is a major factor driving the market. Also, the rising rate of industrialization and urbanization and high implementation of IoT devices stimulates the demand. However, the growing complexity of NDT processes may obstruct the growth of the market. Nevertheless, forward integration with latest technologies may boost the market in forthcoming years.


Key players in the non-destructive testing and inspection market are GE Inspection Technologies, YXLON International, Mistras, Nikon Metrology, Olympus Corporation, Eddyfi, Sonatest Ltd., Magnaflux Corporation, Zetec Inc., Ashtead Technology, T.D. Williamson Inc., Bosello High Technology srl, Fischer Technology Inc., Cygnus Instruments Ltd., NDT Global GmbH, Acuren, LynX Inspection, and among others. Key players active in the market are involved in collaborative agreements and expansion to bolster the growth of the market.

  • For instance, in December 2017, MISTRAS Group acquired West Penn Non-Destruction Testing LLC, a provider of non-destructive testing services at its in-house facilities, for USD 74 million in cash. The acquisition enhanced MISTRAS Group capability of in-house NDT Market services, especially for the customers from the aerospace industry.
