Acoustic Emission Testing (AET) technique is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

The Acoustic Emission (AE) testing method is a non-destructive technique that identifies and monitors the emission of ultrasonic stress waves from localized sources when a material undergoes deformation under stress. During the process, an inspector captures elastic ultrasonic waves traveling across the surface of a solid material using one or more sensors. As the acoustic wave traverses the object's surface or penetrates through it, encountering any defects alters the wave, affecting its speed and amplitude. Inspectors analyze these changes to detect the presence of defects.

Acoustic emission testing (AET) is a versatile approach for gathering pertinent data related to materials. It is employed in monitoring the processes of materials susceptible to active stress. AET serves as a non-destructive testing and inspection technique for identifying and tracking crack propagation and corrosion activity in test objects. It finds applications in scratch testing, weld monitoring, motor testing, cavity erosion monitoring, and leakage tracking in structures made of steel, aluminum, composites, and other materials. AET is also pivotal in monitoring the health of pipelines, pressure vessels, storage tanks, bridges, and aircraft, evaluating the mechanical performance of materials, and detecting welding-induced cracks, fatigue, and stress in the metals industry.

In the aerospace and defense sector, AET is instrumental for monitoring aerospace structures and conducting in-flight inspections to identify cracks in aircraft. Key manufacturers of equipment used for AET include Ashtead Technology (Scotland), Flawtech (US), MISTRAS (US), and NDT Seals (US). For instance, Magnaflux offers Soundsafe, a high-performance, general-purpose ultrasonic couplant known for its exceptional performance and corrosion protection. MISTRAS Group provides MISTRAS AE boards, comprehensive AE data acquisition systems featuring onboard signal processing capabilities. These boards, available in 2, 4, and 8-channel configurations, are designed for capturing accurate waveforms at higher bandwidths and sampling rates for various applications. MISTRAS also offers VPAC II IS, a secure acoustic leak instrument designed for hazardous areas, determining hydrocarbon loss to flare and contributing to significant cost savings for plants.

The power Generation vertical of the NDT and Inspection market is predicted to register the highest market share between 2024-2029.

Power generation stands as a leading sector leveraging Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) and inspection techniques to ensure the operational efficiency of power plants on a global scale. The growing worldwide demand for energy production has resulted in an increased number of power plants, subsequently driving the global demand for NDT and inspection equipment and services. Essential components of power generation plants, including boilers, heaters, turbines and generators, feedwater heaters, reactor vessels, and condensers, undergo NDT and inspections to both identify and address flaws. This process also involves monitoring material degradation due to factors such as thermal aging, plastic deformation, fatigue, residual stress, creep, and stress corrosion cracking.

A significant portion of the industry is occupied by service providers specializing in inspecting power plants at both conventional and nuclear sites. As power plants, especially nuclear ones, age, the need for maintenance grows, leading to an increased demand for NDT and inspection techniques. Various applications within the power generation industry, such as wind power plants, solar energy plants, nuclear power plants, and fossil fuel energy plants, contribute significantly to driving the growth of the NDT and inspection market.

Given the critical role of power generation in providing uninterrupted power to communities, prioritizing safety and reliability is paramount to protect the general public and plant employees. Test Equipment Distributors (TED) has established a proven track record in delivering equipment and solutions for Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) specific to power generation. NDT for power generation is essential for identifying potential weaknesses or structural defects and mitigating excessive downtime or loss of capabilities in the future. This method evaluates the current condition of power generation systems or components to determine their fitness for service and estimate remaining service life expectancy. Examples of potential sources of problems within a power plant include primary circuits, turbines, or heat exchanger tubes. Early detection of defects or flaws through NDT helps prevent or address these issues. The range of equipment available is portable and designed to penetrate hard-to-reach areas, ensuring an easy and efficient inspection process.

Advancements in AI and IoT are accelerating the growth of the NDT and inspection market.

The non-destructive testing (NDT) market is on an upward trajectory, fueled by heightened demand from the aerospace sector, necessitating superior material scrutiny and structural integrity. Extending beyond aerospace, diverse applications seek effective detection of flaws, cracks, and leaks through manual inspections in quality control processes. Overcoming challenges associated with conventional NDT, the industry embraces AI technologies, enhancing efficiency, productivity, and innovation.

As AI takes center stage in NDT, it makes these techniques accessible even to non-expert users, fostering increased adoption across manufacturing, oil & gas, aerospace, and automotive sectors. Integrating the Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) with AI-based NDT capabilities is reshaping traditional business models, ushering in changes to market structures. This evolution stimulates technological advancements, fostering a competitive landscape marked by partnerships and M&A activities.

Understanding the developments in AI and IoT requires a comprehensive overview of state-of-the-art research activities, defining capabilities and limitations.
