Global Universal Hardness Tester Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A universal hardness tester is an instrument used to measure the resistance of a material to penetration by a pointed object. The importance of this type of testing is that it can be used to determine the relative hardness of materials and also helps in selecting the most appropriate material for a particular application.

Digital Model:

The digital model is a tool that helps to create, modify and analyze the test conditions for the product. It's an effective way to test products in simulation environment without any physical device. The factors such as ease of use, cost effectiveness and time efficiency are expected to drive market growth over the forecast period.

Analog Model:

Analog model is a tool that simulates real-world conditions to test the durability of electronic components. It is used in Universal Hardness Tester (UHT) which helps to determine the resistance of various materials to thermal shock and determines if an item is fit for use or not.

The Analog Model consists of two parts, one part represents electrical characteristics and other part represents mechanical characteristics.

Application Insights:

The other application segment includes construction and mining hardness tester. The demand for GEU is expected to witness growth owing to its applications in various industries such as electronic, industrial, chemical and others. In addition, the product finds application in various fields such as construction materials testing; it can be used for testing concrete blocks & bricks of different types & sizes and also check the durability of cementitious coatings on different substrates including steel & concrete.

Electronic hardness testers are widely used across several end-use industries including consumer electronics (laptop/notebook), metalworking (drilling machines), semiconductor equipment (chipset) manufacturing facilities etc., mainly because they provide a quick solution to determine if an item has been sharpened or not. Furthermore, these devices help measure Rockwell Hardness on electronic components which helps determine if an item has been manufactured using proper procedures or not i.e.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing regional market with a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 owing to increasing investments in construction and manufacturing sectors. In addition, rising demand for electronic products such as smartphones and laptops is anticipated to drive the hardness testing industry in this region over the forecast period.

North America accounted for a significant share of global revenue in 2017 due to high product adoption across various applications including industrial, electronic, and chemical industries. The U.S.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for hardness testers in the automotive and aerospace industries due to the need for high precision and accuracy during manufacturing processes.
  • Growing popularity of surface finish analysis as a quality control measure in various industrial sectors.
  • Rising demand from emerging economies such as China and India for hardness testers owing to the increasing adoption of advanced manufacturing technologies.
  • Proliferation of online shopping portals that offer a wide range of hardness testers at competitive prices, thereby boosting sales growth prospects for this market segment. 5) Technological advancements that result in the development of new and more efficienthardness testers, which helps manufacturers stay aheadof competition
