Overview Nondestructive Testing (NDT) is a technique used to help assure safety and reliability through detection of any flaws or defects in product or industrial components such as pipelines, power stations, refineries and oil platforms, without disrupting operations or delaying processes or damaging the material.
Techniques such as radiography, ultrasonics and other advanced imaging technologies can be used to monitor the condition of industrial assets throughout the project life cycle: from construction to operations, maintenance to decommissioning or life extension.
Demand for such services has grown, driven by increasing regulation and standardization, extending asset lifespans and the need to protect reputation from product failure. There is a growing demand for NDT services during the operational and decommissioning of assets such as pipelines, structures, tanks, railcars and pressure–containing equipment, where high-quality NDT services help customers seeking to reduce risk and improve the integrity and lifetime of their assets.

Summary and Highlights Nondestructive testing (NDT) is needed, whenever an assurance is required of the integrity of the infrastructure. Aircraft, trains, pipelines, oil rigs, bridges and pressure vessels are examples of everyday things that are being regularly examined using various NDT techniques.
In addition to the need to ensure safety, nondestructive testing can be used to improve output and profitability. Furthermore, a component or an entire structure or machine can be tested many times using several types of tests through the complete life cycle to ensure its continued integrity. Components can be tested before they are finally shaped or while they are in service. This means that the continuing quality of components can be assured, such as checking railway lines, aero-engine turbine blades and the welds on a high-speed theme park ride.
Additionally, nondestructive methods can be employed to monitor the integrity of the structure through its useful life. These NDT methods supplement other techniques, which can be applied without interruption to normal operation of a structure or a machine. These techniques are known as condition monitoring. There is continuous progress in the development and application of NDT methods that are often used in conjunction with CAD and computer-based modeling to match the advances in new materials, component design and new products.
In addition to the equipment for NDT, there is an expanding market for various NDT services, which are being offered by numerous companies. Some of these companies also offer training to customers’ engineers in various NDT techniques and also certify these engineers. It can be seen that the NDT service market is expanding very fast especially when there is a shortage of trained and certified engineers.
The following summary table and figure illustrate the global market for NDT equipment and various NDT services. The global market for NDT equipment and NDT services put together amounted to more than $15.8 billion in 2016.
This market is expected to increase to nearly $17.3 billion in 2017 and further increase to more than $26.4 billion in 2022. The CAGR for the combined market for NDT equipment and NDT services is expected to be 8.9%, over the five-year period from 2017 through 2022. The growth rate for the combined market for ultrasonic and infrared thermography NDT equipment is expected to be 9.0% and the growth rate of the combined market for radiography and liquid penetrant NDT equipment is expected to be 8.3%, for the five-year period from 2017 through 2022.
It can be seen that there is good growth in all the sectors of NDT equipment, but there is additional growth in NDT services market, with the CAGR of 9.5%, for the five-year period from 2017 through 2022. This total NDT services market consists of NDT training services, calibration services of various NDT equipment, repairs and calibration services to NDT equipment. Global market for these services have been worked out separately and indicated in Chapter 4 of this report
