DUBLIN, April 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/4w3xgv/global) has announced the addition of the "Global Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) Equipment Market - By Technology (Ultrasonic, Eddy Current , Electromagnetic, Radiography, Thermography), Verticals (Manufacturing, Petrochemical, Aerospace, Automotive, Power Generation) & Geography (2013 - 2018)" report to their offering.
Non-destructive testing relates to the examination of materials for flaws without harming the object being tested. Non- destructive testing provides a cost effective means of testing while protecting the object's usability for its designed purpose. The technique can be applied on a sampling basis for individual investigation or may be used for 100% checking of material in a production quality control system.
There are some existing non-destructive testing technologies such as ultrasonic testing, radiography testing and eddy current testing which capture most of the market. Ultrasonic testing has been the first choice of the end users for flaw determination. On the other side the emergence of next generation technologies like phased array ultrasonic, X-Ray computed tomography and computed radiography will affect the traditional technologies in the days to come.
This report describes the traditional technologies as well as emerging technologies for contact and non-contact methods for testing the flaws of objects. Non-destructive testing market is in its maturity period however some technologies of it are still in their growth stage. Technologies are integrating with asset management, integrity solution and decision making tools with the advancement in sensors, semiconductor and automation.
