NDT and Inspection Market Size Worth USD 21.98 Billion By 2032 | CAGR: 9.0%

The global NDT and inspection market size is expected to reach USD 21.98 Billion by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “NDT and Inspection Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Technique; By Service; By Method (Surface Inspection, Visual Inspection, Volumetric Inspection, Others); By Vertical; By Application; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2024 - 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

The demand for quality control and safety measures is growing across various industries such as manufacturing, oil & gas, aerospace, automotive, and infrastructure, leading to a rapid expansion of the global market for non-destructive testing (NDT) and inspection. The market's growth is mainly fueled by the need for reliable and accurate inspection methods as products are becoming more complex and critical. This has resulted in higher adoption of NDT techniques to ensure product reliability and durability and rising awareness of safety and quality standards in different sectors.

Nevertheless, the adoption of NDT techniques is facing challenges due to the high initial investment cost for NDT equipment and personnel training, which is a significant barrier. Besides, some NDT techniques are time-consuming, leading to delays in production schedules and increased downtime. This poses a problem for companies that rely on quick turnaround times to meet customer demands.
