A Specialist with Extensive Expertise & Profound Domain Knowledge in Non-Destructive Testing Services

Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) is a method employed by industries to test the products without damaging them in the process. NDT encompasses a wide group of testing and analysis techniques. These techniques evaluate the properties of a material, component, structure, or system for characteristic differences or welding defects. They designed in such a way that testing occurs without even scratching the original product.

NDT was developed by a German physicist back in 1895 and today, it is a thriving industry that uses diverse techniques to ensure structural integrity. Several industries need their products checked and hence, NDT ensures equipment, plant assets and products remain intact and safe.

In 2020, the NDT industry was valued at USD 13.9 billion and the rise in manufacturing activities in both developed and developing countries is further pushing the industry. It is estimated that the industry will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 6.7% from 2021 to 2028. The driving force behind the industry’s growth will also result in improved fault detection and safety. The growing awareness among manufacturers is expected to help the industry thrive and penetrate more industries in the coming years.
