The global ultrasonic testing market size is projected to reach USD 3,671.9 million by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 9.43% during the forecast period. The burgeoning startup culture in the non-destructive testing (NDT) domain will play a central role in fueling this market, postulates Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled “Ultrasonic Testing Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Type (Time-Of-Flight Diffraction, Phased Array, Immersion Testing, Guided-Wave Testing, Acoustography, and Others) By Equipment (Flaw Detectors, Thickness Gauges, Transducers & Probes, Industrial Scanners, Tube Inspection Systems, Bond Testers, Imaging Systems, and Others), By Service (Inspection Services, Equipment Rental Services, Calibration Services, and Training Services), By Vertical (Manufacturing, Oil & Gas, Aerospace, Public Infrastructure, Automotive, Power Generation, and Others) and Regional Forecast, 2020-2027”. Testing and inspection are critical functions that operators and owners of capital have to perform to ensure the safety and reliability of equipment, machinery, and other assets. Startups have been steadily emerging over the past few years to fulfill these functions using NDT and ultrasonic testing (UT) technologies. For example, the Indian startup AAVRTTI has developed RUDI (Radar for Utility Detection and Imaging) to detect, identify, and map buried utilities. The company also offers other services, such as the localized detection of cable faults and underground pipe leakages. Inductosense, a startup domiciled in the UK, has been engaged in developing NDT solutions using ultrasonic testing. The company manufactures ultrasonic sensors to facilitate accurate monitoring of internal corrosion & erosion in pipelines and vessels. These advancements in asset testing technologies, heralded by fledgling startups, will create massive opportunities for this market.
Revenue Shortfalls amid the COVID-19 Crisis to Quell Market Growth
With the coronavirus-induced global economic and health crisis unfolding with increasing intensity, the aviation industry is set to experience unprecedented revenue shortfalls. According to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), in the first half of 2021, airlines are likely to face potential gross passenger operating revenues between USD 163 billion and USD 194 billion. This is in addition to the USD 391 billion worth of losses faced by airliners in 2020. The ultrasonic testing market growth is also expected to suffer setbacks as a result of these financial stresses as the pandemic has severely disrupted investment plans of aircraft manufacturers and aviation technology providers. Furthermore, travel restrictions and the cancelation of flights have delayed the adoption of advanced UT technologies. For example, a recent report by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) points out that a combination of supply shocks and negative demand has created widespread uncertainty in the aviation industry, thus delaying the deployment of next-generation technologies, such as ultrasonic testing, by airline companies. As a result of these developments, this market will display a negative CAGR of -14.9% in 2019 and reach a value of USD 1,954.4 million in 2020.
