10 Feb The State of the NDT Industry (Infographic)

Now that we’re well into 2016, it’s time to take a look forward at what the NDT industry will look like years into the future… in infographic form.

At the same time, we wanted to tip our hat at Frost & Sullivan for the excellent quality of its data and analysis. Over the years, F&S has emerged as the most credible source of data on NDT, which is why we collaborated with the people at F&S on this infographic. Hopefully not the last time.

NDT As a Whole

The NDT industry, as of 2015, overall, is an approximately $10 billion industry performing very well, its main drivers in the oil & gas segment being:

  • Stringent safety regulations
  • Aging infrastructures having issues with corrosion
  • The ever growing need to run assets at higher capacities
  • All of this being almost unaffected by the economic downturn

The inspection service industry, in the oil & gas segment (the most profitable) is expected to have an annual compound growth rate (CAGR) of 4.6% over the 2015–2020 period. It will grow from an $8.1 billion to a $10.2 billion industry. Within this, the Middle East and Africa, as well as Asia Pacific are set to have the highest CAGR over the same period.

Things are looking great!
