High Demand Market for Ultrasonic Testing Services during 2021-2026
Posted by Tom C on April 22nd, 2021
The global ultrasonic testing market size is estimated to grow from USD 3.0 billion in 2021 to USD 4.2 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 7.1% from 2021 to 2026. Ultrasonic testing techniques are used primarily in engineering industries for evaluating different properties of structures, equipment, components, and materials without causing any damage.
Ultrasonic testing is an extremely valuable technique for timely evaluation and diagnosis of faults in products. It is an important quality control tool in the manufacturing process as it allows for early detection of surface and subsurface defects in finished and work-in-progress (WIP) goods. Ultrasonic testing is used for detecting faults and structural integrity in industrial assets and public infrastructures such as factory buildings, platforms, bridges, railway lines, piping systems, and industrial machinery. Stringent government regulations regarding public safety & product quality and continuous advances in electronics, automation, and robotics are key factors driving the ultrasonic testing market's growth. The high adoption of IoT devices and rising need to assess aging assets' health also propel the NDT and inspection market development.

The ultrasonic technique (UT) is likely to be the largest contributor in the NDT and inspection market during the forecast period
The market for the UT (ultrasonic testing) technique is projected to largest contributor in NDT Market. It is presently the most popular NDT technique due to its ability to identify defects and accurately determine their severity. Some advanced techniques such as ultrasonic immersion testing and guided-wave ultrasonic testing can be used for critical applications in the oil & gas and aerospace industries, among many others.
Inspection services to account for the largest market size by 2021
Ultrasonic testing and inspection services are likely to account for the largest share of the market in 2021. Ultrasonic testing techniques' primary purpose is to inspect objects, materials, machinery, and structures for defects so that they can be rectified in a timely and cost-effective manner. After inspection services, training services are likely to continue to gain the second-largest market share in the coming years since training NDT technicians to keep them updated with new technological trends and make them aware of the customers' changing demands is equally essential.
The Ultrasonic testing market in APAC to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
Asia Pacific is likely to be the fastest-growing region in the ultrasonic testing market due to the rapid infrastructural development and automation adoption in manufacturing industries in countries such as India and China. Countries in Asia Pacific are involved in the manufacturing of defense aircraft, which is expected to increase ultrasonic testing equipment and services in the defense & aerospace industry. Many infrastructural development projects are under construction and scheduled to be constructed in the region during the forecast period. The demand for automobiles is estimated to grow substantially by 2026.
