The PMI market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.79% between 2018 and 2023
The positive material identification (PMI) market is expected to grow from USD 1.99 billion in 2018 to USD 2.89 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 7.79% between 2018 and 2023. Some of the drivers for the growth of this market are stringent safety regulations by governments and quality control requirements, declining efficiencies of aging assets and the subsequent need for operational safety, and innovative technological advancements in PMI equipment. The main restraint for the market growth is a high cost associated with PMI equipment.

The PMI market for services is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period
The PMI services considered in the study involve only the third-party services offered by the testing, inspection, and certification (TIC) players, such as SGS, Bureau Veritas, Intertek, and TÜV SÜD.Various industry players purchasing PMI equipment for the testing of alloy and metal materials are not considered in this scope.

The market for services is likely to grow at a higher CAGR owing to the increasing concentration of the third-party service providers in this market. This market is basically known as the outsourced market, wherein the experts render these services as per the client demands.

XRF analyzers held major size of the PMI equipment market in 2017
The adoption of XRF analyzers is huge as compared with that of OES analyzers, as XRF is the purest form of NDT, and these analyzers are less expensive than the OES analyzers.Also, the OES method results in burned marks on the objects, whereas XRF provides clean analysis.

Moreover, XRF analyzers are small in size and are mostly portable, whereas OES analyzers are mostly suitable for laboratory use being benchtop devices weighing more than 15–20 kg per analyzer. These factors are likely to continue to boost the adoption of XRF analyzers in industries such as oil and gas, scrap recycling, and chemicals in the future as well.
