Acoustic Emission Testing Market - Dynamics

Trend of Miniaturization of Acoustic Emission Testing Equipment to Lend Bigger Sales Prospects

Miniaturization trends will continue to cause a significant paradigm shift in the manufacturing of acoustic emission testing equipment. Manufacturers of the equipment realize the benefits of portable devices such as material reduction, which further reduces the overall production cost. Lesser space requirement to carry inspection activities have been appealing the end-users and in turn, the sales of the acoustic emission testing equipment are on a notable surge. Convergence of artificial intelligence with inspection activities is anticipated to unlock new avenues for the advancement of the acoustic emission testing market.

Sales of Acoustic Emission Testing Equipment Tumble As Installation Cost Surges

End-users of acoustic testing equipment stick to the conventional NDT methods and exhibit a hesitance for adopting acoustic emission testing methods on account of their high installation costs. Acoustic emission testing equipment requires a quiet environment to function and even a little exposure to noise hamper their operation. Additionally, complexity in their functions demand skilled labors and incur large training cost per labor, which has caused a reluctance among the end-users for the adoption of the equipment. Poor quantitative results of the testing method in terms of size and depth of the inspection could affect the desirability of adoption among the end-users, thereby impacting the growth of the acoustic emission testing market.

North America to Hold a Sizeable Share of the Acoustic Emission Testing Market

Rising concerns pertaining to the aging infrastructures in the developed countries and the aftermaths post their collapse have generated a scope for effective asset health management solutions. With the technological advancements and enhanced capabilities of the systems, the modernistic acoustic emission testing equipment is employed for precise inspection of an area. Cost-effectiveness of the technique remains a significant driver augmenting the demand for acoustic emission testing techniques.

Growth of the acoustic emission testing market is likely to remain sustained on account of the favorable government policies and programs creating awareness pertaining to the health check of aging assets, which has bridged the information gap among the end-users of the developed countries. A cohort of these factors holds promising growth prospects for the acoustic emission testing market in North America.
