Global Industrial Computed Tomography Market 2017-2021

About Industrial Computed Tomography

Industrial CT may be referred to as a computer-aided tomographic process, also popularly known as X-ray computed tomography. It uses irradiation for producing 3D illustrations of scanned objects both on the outside as well as on the inside. It is mostly used in many industries for inspecting components internally. The global industrial CT market is at a nascent stage in terms of market adoption. CT is identified as a favorable solution for quality inspection and control, and hence many OEMs and research organizations are pursuing the development of CT systems and broadening their applications.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global industrial computed tomography market to grow at a CAGR of 6.63% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Industrial Computed Tomography Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global industrial computed tomography market: General Electric, Nikon Metrology, OMRON, and ZEISS.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AMETEK, Bruker, North Star Imaging (NSI), Novacam Technologies, RxSOLUTIONS, and YXLON International.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is improved measurement resolution. Industrial CT technology has seen rapid improvements in recent years. A few single CT slices would previously have taken hours to generate, but now, it is possible to completely reconstruct 3D models having billions of voxels in nearly 30 to 45 minutes, which is still slow for industry standards, but a significant improvement from four to five years ago.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is technology improvements in image processing and resolution. There are several improvements in the technology involved in modern industrial CT scanning, which help to make it a more viable option for inspection application. A modern high-end CT scan takes multiple 2D X-ray images around an object and covers 360°. CT systems typically acquire between 360 images (one image every degree) and 3,600 images (one image every 0.1 degree), based on the final desired resolution. A produced image is generally between three to ten megapixels and is also averaged and filtered to reduce noise.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is high cost of industrial CT systems. The target customers for industrial computed tomography equipment are manufacturers that produce products and then inspect them for quality and safety. All these manufacturers aim for the best price performance ratio for their customers. OEMs in the industries of automotive and aerospace require the best price performance value offered by CT systems, which can reduce maintenance and ownership costs while improving inspection quality and productivity for high-throughput industrial applications.
