The global material testing market reached a value of US$ 5.61 Billion in 2020. Material testing refers to the technique of measuring the physical, structural and mechanical properties of various materials and components. It is used for analyzing the behavior of metals, ceramics and plastics, under different conditions and for assessing if they are in optimal condition. Material testing can be classified as mechanical testing; thermal testing; resistance testing against corrosion, radiation and biological deterioration; and nondestructive testing. These tests are majorly conducted through universal, servo-hydraulic, hardness and impact test machines and are used for production, quality control, research, and laboratory applications. As a result, material testing finds extensive applications across various industries, such as automotive, aerospace & defense, construction, education, energy & power and oil & gas.
Rapid industrialization, along with significant growth in the construction sector, is one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. Raw materials are tested for their mechanical properties to maintain or improve the quality of the products. For instance, in the construction industry, materials, such as adhesives, sealants, concretes, mortar, ceramics, slates, stones and pipes, are tested to check if they have the desired properties. In line with this, the manufacturing of innovative composites across various industries is also contributing to the market growth. Several technological advancements, such as the development of testing equipment with multi-stage testing capabilities and picture-video capture functionalities, are favoring the market growth. Other factors, including increasing product adoption by the medical sector to test material integrity, surface morphology and adhesion capacities, along with extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are anticipated to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global material testing market to reach a value of US$ 6.9 Billion by 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 3.51% during 2021-2026.
