According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Non-Destructive Testing and Inspection Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026," the global non-destructive testing and inspection market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020. Non-destructive testing (NDT) and inspection is a testing and analysis technique that are used for testing, inspecting and evaluating materials, systems, structures and components for characteristic differences. It is a quality assurance management tool that involves the use of an array of inspection methods to detect discontinuities or defects without hampering the serviceability of the part or system or altering it permanently. It is a safe and reliable method to evaluate the integrity of a unit as it works by utilizing multiple non-invasive inspection (NDI) techniques. These testing solutions are carried out according to the set regulations of different industries. Consequently, they are extensively deployed for minimizing the chances of failure across the chemical, aerospace, automotive, defense and oil and gas sectors.
We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
