Market Overview:

The global non-destructive material testing instrument market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing demand for non-destructive testing (NDT) services from various end-use industries, such as aerospace & defense, automotive, oil & gas, infrastructure and power generation. In addition, the growing awareness about safety and quality among consumers is also propelling the growth of this market. Based on type, the global non-destructive material testing instrument market can be segmented into X-ray inspection systems, ultrasonic flaw detection systems, magnetic particle inspection systems (MPI), penetrant flaw detection systems (PFD), eddy current test systems (ECT) and other NDT methods. Among these segments, X-ray inspection systems held a major share of the global NDT equipment market in 2017 and are expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period as well. This can be attributed to their ability detect even very small flaws in materials that are not visible to naked eye.

Global Non-Destructive Material Testing Instrument Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Non-destructive material testing instruments are used to test the properties of materials without causing any damage to them. This is important because it allows us to assess the condition of a material without damaging it, which can be useful for both research and manufacturing purposes. Non-destructive material testing can be used to determine things like the strength or durability of a material, as well as its suitability for certain applications.


X-ray is a kind of electromagnetic ionizing radiation which is applied in material testing. It’s an effective tool for analyzing the internal structure of materials including steel, concrete, wood, and other products.


Ultrasonic Testing (UT) is a non-destructive material testing method that uses high frequency sound waves to measure the thickness of materials. Ultrasonic testing instruments are used for several applications in the metal detection and non-metal detection industries. UT equipment can be used on almost all types of materials such as metals, ceramics, polymers, wood & composites and concrete among others. The ultrasonic test methods are widely accepted across various countries such as U.S.

Application Insights:

The application segment includes aerospace & defense, automotive, oil & gas, infrastructure, power generation and others. The aerospace & defense segment dominated the market in 2017 owing to increasing demand for non-destructive testing instrumentation from the military and defense industry across the globe. The growth of this industry is driven by technological advancements coupled with expansion of global trade activities resulting in increased travel distances which require aircraft maintenance at regular intervals.

Non-destructive testing offers various advantages including detection of flaws or defects in components before they are installed or used on a large scale thus avoiding potential failures during manufacturing as well as assembling processes. It also helps maintain equipment performance over its entire life cycle thus reducing down time and associated costs incurred due to unplanned downtime caused by component failure or inspection finds later on during operations/use.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing regional market over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to increasing demand for non-destructive testing (NDT) instruments in countries such as China, India, and Japan. In addition, rising investments by various governments in infrastructure development are also anticipated to drive the market growth over the coming years.

The Asia Pacific region accounted for a revenue share of more than 30% in 2017 owing to growing industrialization and rapid urbanization across emerging economies such as China and India. Moreover, increasing foreign direct investments coupled with government support are also expected to boost industry expansion rates during the forecast period which will further propel product demand from end users including aerospace & defense; automotive; oil & gas; power generation among others.

Europe was estimated at USD X million in 2017 owing both volumes.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for non-destructive testing from the automotive and aerospace industries
  • Growing awareness about the benefits of non-destructive testing among end users
  • Technological advancements in non-destructive testing instruments
  • Rising demand for quality control and inspection services in manufacturing sector
  • Growing number of research and development activities in the field of nondestructive testing
