Non-destructive Testing (NDT) in the Aerospace and Defense Market Outlook 2030 -

Non-destructive testing equipment is used to evaluate or inspect materials, assemblies, or components for discontinuities in characteristics without destroying the serviceability of the part or system. These tests are often used to determine the physical properties of materials such as ductility, ultimate tensile strength, impact resistance, fatigue strength, and fracture toughness. Non-destructive testing is used to control manufacturing processes and ensure product reliability and integrity. Furthermore, non-destructive testing equipment reduces the production cost while maintaining a consistent quality level. Stringent government safety regulations for quality control, ensuring machine safety and reliability, and increasing demand to improve quality and longevity of the machines are the major factors for the growth of the non-destructive testing equipment market globally. Non-destructive testing plays a critical role in the aerospace and aviation industries. Components used in the aerospace industry are designed to be as light as possible while performing their task, making non-destructive testing an essential part of the process. The tasks performed by these components are often associated with high loads and a minor flaw can lead to complete failure if not detected, putting lives at the risks. There are several opportunities for growth, such as large-scale aerospace projects in the Asia-Pacific and European regions as well as the increasing demand for advanced and automated non-destructive testing solutions, which are expected to contribute toward the growth of the market studied in the future.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 has had a significant impact on the growth of the non-destructive testing (NDT) market. Global sales of the non-destructive testing equipment and services for aerospace declined by 10–15% in the fiscal year 2020. The primary issue being faced by the manufacturing industry is supply chain disruptions. Various rules and regulations imposed by the governments across the globe to contain the spread of the COVID-19 include restrictions on the export and import of products and raw materials. This has resulted in significant supply chain issues globally, causing a shortage of raw materials in various industries. There has been a decrease in the demand for non-destructive testing equipment and solutions as various industries cannot resume their operations. Hence, the non-destructive testing equipment market has dropped in its size in the present situation.

Top Impacting Factors

  • Increase in investments in the aerospace & defense sector, rise in complexity of machines & structures that require continuous evaluation for maintaining structural integrity, and development in Radiography Testing Technology drive the market growth.
  • Lack of skilled workforce is expected to hamper the market growth.
  • Government safety regulations mandating the use of non-destructive testing techniques for clearances can be seen as a market investments opportunity.

The Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) in the Aerospace and Defense Market Trends are as Follows:

Growth in Radiography Testing Technology

Radiography is a versatile non-destructive testing method that is used to detect surface and subsurface features in welded parts and castings. Radiography uses highly penetrating X-rays produced by an X-ray tube, gamma rays produced by a radioactive isotope, and other forms of radiation to test products without causing any damage. It improves product reliability, provides information to prevent accidents, and saves lives in industries. It is also used for corrosion mapping, detecting blockages inside sealed equipment, testing semiconductor devices for cracks, broken wires, and unsoldered connections, detecting reinforcing material in concrete slabs, and determining the bulk density of materials. The use of computed radiography in the aerospace and defense industries saves significant amount when compared to other testing methods as it eliminates external costs., Radiography testing range in size from micro-miniature electronic parts to massive missile components used in the aerospace & defense industries, as economic justification is a major criterion for any testing method.

Lack of Skilled Workforce

The demand for non-destructive testing and inspection services is gaining momentum as compared to the demand for non-destructive testing and inspection equipment. Furthermore, it has become important for players to increase their global presence, while also developing, a highly qualified workforce to provide effective non-destructive testing and inspection services. Thus, a qualified workforce with the required non-destructive testing and inspection skillset is a strategic concern for companies. Stringent government regulations as well as increased complexity of non-destructive testing and inspection techniques lead to increase in demand for skilled testers and inspectors. Thus, lack of a skilled workforce is expected to hamper the market growth.
