Vacuum Leak Detectors Market Insights: Growth Factors, Market Drivers

Posted by Shashii Pawar on April 11th, 2019

Vacuum leak detectors are used when there are cracks or leakages on a sealed part, casing or the covering. Not only severe leakages, but also small leakages have a significant impact on the performance of a part or a component, which is likely to cause damage or result in the failure of equipment. Hence, vacuum leak detectors play an important role and components are tested following their installation. Vacuum leak detectors can also detect very small leakages.

Numerous components and sub-assemblies available in the market need to be tested with vacuum leak detectors to avoid failures. These include radiators, compressors, evaporators, torque converters, tire rims, fuel tanks, silencers and airbags, among others. Historically, the vacuum leak detectors testing method is conducted with the help of water immersion and highly compressed air, however, Helium is used nowadays for the detection of leakages. Among the vacuum leak detectors available in the market, helium vacuum leak detectors have captured a prominent market share, followed by hydrogen vacuum leak detectors.

Vacuum Leak Detectors Market: Drivers and challenges


Leakage in any vacuum system can significantly impact the working of the same, which is one of the most prominent factors driving the vacuum leak detectors market. As a large number of components require a vacuum leak detector test, it is the primary driver of the vacuum leak detectors market. Vacuum leak detectors are used for small- as well as large-volume vessels or machinery, and the usage of vacuum leak detectors is as important as the other tests that are conducted on components. This test can improve the standard of a product as well as improve its production process.


The high of vacuum leak detectors is among the primary factors that is hampering the growth of the vacuum leak detectors market. In addition, high maintenance cost is also a factor that is likely to restrain the growth of the vacuum leak detectors. Another factor hampering market growth is the requirement of professionals to handle vacuum leak detectors for the detection of the leakages and the errors associated with components.
