The overall ultrasonic testing (UT) market is expected to reach USD 3.93 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 8.3% between 2016 and 2022. The key driving factors for the growth of the UT are the demand for reliable non-destructive testing technique for fiberglass and carbon fiber composites in manufacturing. Ultrasonic testing provides a complete and well-established technique for locating and documenting internal flaws. The sound waves are reflected from voids or cracks, changes in the echo pattern indicate changes in the internal structure of a part.

“Phased array ultrasonic testing expected to grow at a high rate in the overall UT market during the forecast period“
The market for phased array type of UT is estimated to grow at a high CAGR during the forecast period. The advantages of phased array UT techniques include the ability to perform electronic scanning of the ultrasonic beam and reduce inspection time by eliminating or reducing the need to move the probes. Furthermore, the phased array technology reduces the use of multiple elements to steer, focus, and scan beams with a single transducer assembly. The phased array UT optimizes defect detection and minimizes inspection time, thus this method is expected to grow at a faster rate than other types of UT techniques during the forecast period.

“The UT market for the power generation vertical is expected to grow at the highest CAGR”
The market for the power generation vertical is estimated to grow at a high CAGR during the forecast period. UT plays an important role in ensuring the safety of nuclear power plants in inspection during construction and whilst in-service. Additionally, developing economies such as India are investing in power grid infrastructure to expand their reach of electricity to almost every household.

“North America the largest market, whereas APAC to grow at the highest rate for UT market during the forecast period”
The UT market in North America is primarily driven by major infrastructure undertakings in verticals such as aerospace, power generation, and transportation in the U.S. The market in APAC is expected to grow at a high CAGR between 2016 and 2022. The growth of the UT market in APAC is because of the rapid infrastructural development. The market for NDT equipment is forecast to grow fast, driven primarily by major infrastructure advancements and automation in manufacturing processes in countries such as India and China.
