The ultrasonic testing (UT) market is expected to reach USD 3.93 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 8.3% between 2016 and 2022. Development of portable phased array ultrasonic testing equipment, need for reliable non-destructive testing technique for fiberglass and carbon fiber composites in manufacturing, growth in ultrasonic testing services market, and government regulations are the factors driving the UT market. Some of these types of UT included in this study for the purposes of market estimation are time-of-flight diffraction (TOFD), phased array, ultrasonic immersion testing, guided-wave, and ultrasonic acoustography.

UT is used for the inspection of flaw detection or evaluation, dimensional measurement, high-speed rotating engine parts, and material thickness. The ultrasonic technique detects internal, hidden discontinuities that are deep below the surface using the electronic equipment which is connected to one or more transducers. The UT equipment used in various applications are flaw detectors, industrial scanners, thickness gauges, transducers & probes, tube inspections systems, bond testers, imaging systems, and so on. In 2015, the market for flaw detectors dominated the UT market based on equipment, followed by the market for transducers and probes. The ultrasonic flaw detectors are small, portable, microprocessor-based instruments suitable for both factory and field use. Flaw detectors are widely used as the depth of penetration is superior to other methods and they provide highly accurate flaw sizing and shape of the equipment to be tested.

The market for inspection services is expected to hold a large share of the overall UT market. The UT training services is expected to rise as the UT market is facing the challenge of having less number of trained and skilled technicians for conducting UT inspections. With the aging infrastructure and the growing rate of new infrastructure development, the demand for skilled NDT technicians is expected to grow in the near future.

The power generation vertical is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. UT plays an important role in ensuring the safety of nuclear power plants both in inspection during construction and whilst in-service. Additionally, developing economies such as India are investing in power grid infrastructure to expand their reach of electricity to almost every household.

Ultrasonic Testing Market

The market in APAC is expected to grow at a high CAGR between 2016 and 2022. The growth of the UT market in APAC is attributed owing to the rapid infrastructural development. The market for UT equipment is expected to grow fast, driven primarily by major infrastructure advancements and automation in manufacturing processes in countries such as India and China. The countries such as China and India have high demand for UT equipment in the APAC region.

One of the key restraining factors for the UT market is the inadequate ability to detect early stages of damage of manual ultrasonic thickness testing. The manual ultrasonic thickness gauges use time-of-flight (ToF) technique for measuring thickness of the object of interest. The manual testing procedure is very labor exhaustive, requires removal of insulation or coatings and layout of a grid, and gives a limited point-by-point view of condition. Thus, the probability of detecting localized damage is a major issue with manual ultrasonic thickness testing.

General Electric   (U.S.) was found to be the leader in the ultrasonic testing (UT) market in 2015. The company focuses on product innovations and new product launches as its key business strategies, to ensure its growth in the global UT market. Additionally, to sustain its leading position and ensure future growth, the company adopted other strategies such as agreements and partnerships.
