The Global Nondestructive Testing Inspection Services and Equipment Market in the Transportation Industry

The Global Nondestructive Testing Inspection Services and Equipment Market in the Transportation Industry

The nondestructive testing (NDT) market for the transportation industry is growing and is expected to hit $􂀀 Billion by 2019 growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 􂀀% between 2014 and 2019.

The impact of the global economic downturn of 2009 affected the transportation industry until 2012, and recovery has been slow. But since 2012, the transportation industry has been showcasing high growth potential and there have been significant investments in new production facilities for the automotive industry as well as demand for more aircraft from airlines.

The NDT inspection services market is expected to grow as the transportation industry original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) outsource more NDT service requirements to NDT inspection services companies to leverage their expertise and to save time and costs.

The maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) requirements are especially high in the aerospace and railway industries compared to the automotive industry, which drives the overall NDT market.

The equipment manufacturers will push for adoption of advanced NDT technology, driven by transportation OEMs’ increasing focus on advanced materials because of compliance-driven regulations like CO2 emission regulations.

China and India will gain focus from NDT market participants owing to their high growth potential.
