Industrial RT for Non-Destructive Testing Market to 2022


Industrial radiographic testing (RT) is a method of non-destructive testing that examines the internal structure and integrity of the specimen and its components. RT aids in 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 rays to be used depends on the size and thickness of the object. These RT systems are composed of detectors, source, controllers, display device and a container of different shapes that contains other portable or stationary devices. In addition, these systems are expected to have a transformative effect on construction products, manufacturing applications, automotive, defence and other applications in the coming future.

The increase in oil & gas and power generation projects, stringent safety government regulations and a rise in the need for extending the life of obsolete infrastructure drive the growth of global  industrial RT for the non-destructive testing market. However, the time-consuming nature of RT  systems and high implementation costs restrain this market growth. An increase in the demand for radiography testers by automotive manufacturers to produce high-quality products with tighter tolerances is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for market expansion.
