Industrial RT market report for non-destructive testing to 2022


Industrial radiographic testing (RT) is a method of non-destructive testing (NDT) that examines the internal structure and integrity of a specimen and its components. RT aids in the identification of hidden defects or discontinuities in the product/material. RT systems utilise gamma rays produced by a radioactive isotope or X-rays produced by an X-ray tube for non-destructive inspection or testing.

The type of radiation used depends on the size and thickness of the object. An RT system is composed of detectors, a source, controllers, a display device and a container that contains other portable or stationary devices. In addition, these systems are expected to have a transformative effect on construction products and manufacturing, automotive, defence and other applications in the coming future.

An increase in oil & gas and power generation projects, stringent governmental safety regulations and a rise in the need to extend the life of obsolete infrastructure is driving the growth of the global industrial RT market for non-destructive testing, according to a new report from Research and Markets. However, the time-consuming nature of the RT system and the high implementation costs restrain this market growth. An increase in demand for radiographic testing by automotive manufacturers, to produce high-quality products with tighter tolerances, is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for market expansion.
