Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers

The global market for non-destructive testing and inspection is experiencing significant growth, driven by several key factors. These include the rising adoption of IoT devices, the growing need for assessments of aging assets, stringent government regulations ensuring public safety and product standards, the increasing utilization of NDT and inspection tools in the industrial sectors of robotics, automation, and electronics, and the surge in demand for ASICs.

The global COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant negative influence on the industry for non-destructive testing and inspection. Depending on how the virus spreads in various parts of the world, sales of non-destructive testing and inspection tools and services for significant industries like oil & gas and aerospace are predicted to fall globally by 12–16% in the fiscal year 2020.


The biggest challenges faced by non-destructive testing and inspection manufacturers include the decline in new oil and exploration projects, temporary stoppage of production facilities, and a decline in crude oil prices.


The market offers several opportunities to players, due to the following reasons:

  • Significant advancements in infrastructure across APAC, Europe, and Latin America
  • New applications and technological developments in NDT and inspection methods
  • Increasing demand from the power generation industry for NDT and inspection services

Geographic Overview

Geographically, the market for non-destructive testing and inspection is expanding most quickly in the APAC region, due to the rising R&D spending and the expanding manufacturing and electronics industries. In comparison to other regions, APAC countries, particularly China, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, and India, are experiencing a growth in the adoption of non-destructive testing and inspection products and solutions.
