Non-destructive testing (NDT) is the analysis of the properties of a material or object without causing any damage to the object. NDT techniques are useful because they do not cause any permanent damage to the object being tested. NDT equipment and services are mainly used in aerospace, automotive, mechanical, petrochemical, infrastructure, power generation industries Other industries using NDT equipment and services include art, medicine and forensics.
NDT market can be broadly divided into equipment and services markets . NDT equipment has many applications in flaw detection, structural mechanics, leak detection, dimensional measurements, estimation of physical properties, chemical composition detection as well as weld verification. The major drivers for NDT market are more stringent government regulations, new technologies being developed, automation processes and robotics industry.
