X-Ray Detector for Non-Destructive Testing Market Overview:
X-Ray Detector for Non-Destructive Testing Market was valued at $ 129,939 thousand in 2014, and is projected to reach at $ 231,811 thousand by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 7.31% from 2014 to 2022. An X-ray detector is an electronic device that detects radiation of X-ray or gamma ray for imaging purposes. X-ray imaging is an important non-destructive testing (NDT) technique for products such as circuit boards, concrete parts, and metals. This technique is also useful to detect Cracks and very fine manufacturing defects, thus maintaining quality, product reliability, and various other physical properties of the materials. NDT uses various testing methods to evaluate the object, material, or system without damaging or destroying it. This testing assures that the structural and mechanical components perform their function in a safe, reliable, and cost-effective manner.
The key factor that drives the growth of the global X-ray detector for NDT market include technological advancements in hardware, such as tubes, sources, and detectors. In addition, continuous upgrades in software have contributed significantly toward improving the efficiency of X-ray inspection systems.
