Increasing Use of NDT in Railway Industry
Ultrasonic testing measures material thickness, detects hidden faults, and analyses material qualities using high-frequency, directed sound waves. A transducer is used to transmit and/or receive the ultrasound waves that are passed into the metal, and a flaw detector is used to process the data. While UT is useful in a variety of applications, it is particularly useful in rail testing. Rails can develop discontinuities over time as a result of either a manufacturing flaw or in-service wear. If left undiscovered, these discontinuities can be disastrous, and they must be monitored through routine maintenance or safety measures. The “chase car process,” which consists of a lead test vehicle that performs flaw detection followed by a verification chase car, is now used for the bulk of rail testing. The location of a potential fault is relayed to the pursuit car when the lead test vehicle encounters it. It is the responsibility of the chase car operator to determine whether a problem exists and to report any positive results to the railroad for corrective action.
How has COVID-19 had a significant negative impact on the Non-Destructive Testing Market?
Supply chain interruptions are the most pressing issue facing the manufacturing industry. Governments around the world have enacted a variety of policies and regulations to curb the spread of the COVID-19, including restrictions on the export and import of products and raw materials. This has caused major supply chain issues all around the world, resulting in a raw material shortage in a variety of industries. Demand for NDT and inspection equipment and solutions has declined as a result of many enterprises' incapacity to resume operations. As a result, in the current context, the NDT and inspection market is declining.
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the worldwide manufacturing and supply chain system is mostly affected (COVID-19). The majority of industry executives and legislators are looking for effective methods and policies to redesign production patterns and match customer demand. The majority of raw materials are imported from China and other Asian developing countries, according to global supply chain perspectives. Most transportation linkages and distribution methods between suppliers, production facilities, and customers have been disrupted by the COVID-19 epidemic. As a result, in the post-COVID-19 pandemic period, it is critical to examine sustainable production and consumption patterns. The majority of the world's major economies went into absolute lockdown, and the attention has subsequently moved to the spike in demand for basic goods and services. As a result, demand for several non-essential items and services has decreased. The issues of production and operations management in pandemic scenarios are examined, and policy measures for strengthening the system's resilience and sustainability are effectively proposed.

What are the current market drivers?
Nondestructive Testing (NDT) Is Crucial For Equipment Integrity In Petrochemical & Gas Industry
In most sectors, nondestructive testing (NDT) is essential. In the oil and gas industry, nondestructive testing (NDT) is crucial for equipment integrity as well as the safety of petroleum refining and extraction activities. To keep potentially dangerous chemicals and fluids safely contained within pipes and pressure vessels, ultrasonic and eddy current NDT testing solutions must be used to inspect welds and metals for defects and corrosion. In various aspects of the oil and gas sector, nondestructive testing (NDT) is used. Effective ultrasonic and eddy current oil and gas upstream solutions are required to run a safe, efficient, and economical petroleum extraction operation on land or offshore. To keep pipelines and transportation moving smoothly, a complete suite of midstream NDT solutions is required to carry extracted crude oil and gases to refineries where they will be transformed into useable products. Downstream NDT solutions are required for vessels that contain the pressure and heat required to "break" petroleum into a variety of usable fuels.
Welding Cracks In Ship Structural Sections Are Widely Known To Be Exceedingly Dangerous To Structural Strength And Navigation Safety
Since the turn of the century, the shipbuilding sector has been researching welding application technologies. The first ocean-going vessels were built in 1920 by a British shipyard using the earliest welding technology. Welding technique was gradually promoted and implemented in shipyards, eventually displacing riveting. Cracks, porosity, slag, unfused and partial penetration are invariably present in welds due to the influence of numerous parameters in the welding process. It is vital to effectively test and analyse the welds in order to ensure the quality of the welded components, particularly in ship pressure pipelines, large sections of seams, and outside panels, in order to ensure the quality of the welded components. Welding cracks in ship structural sections are widely known to be exceedingly dangerous to structural strength and navigation safety. Some hidden fissures, in particular, are difficult to locate. These hidden cracks are unending once the ship leaves the workshop. As a result, as soon as the fractures caused by the ship's construction are discovered, the source of the problem must be identified and urgent action done to eliminate them. Welding quality inspection is often separated into two categories: non-destructive examination and failure inspection. The process is mostly based on the product's technical needs and applicable specifications.
Where are the market opportunities?
Infrastructure Developments On A Large Scale Across APAC, Europe, And Latin America
India, China, Malaysia, and Brazil are all building new bridges, dams, railroads, power plants, and refineries as part of their infrastructural growth. As a result, demand for NDT and inspection services and equipment is expected to rise, propelling the expansion of businesses that provide these services and equipment. Huge infrastructure investments are changing global development, from China's Belt and Road Initiative to the African Development Bank's infrastructure development plans and the Initiative for the Integration of South America's Regional Infrastructure.
Use Of Drones And Crawling Robots For NDT
Refinery structures require constant inspection, maintenance, and safe work procedures to keep them in good working order; but, due to their vast height and bulk, accessing them is becoming increasingly difficult. Many researchers have created numerous robots for wall crawling in attempt to address this problem, but much more development is required. One of the main reasons why existing wall crawling robots haven't been employed more widely in the field is the possibility of the equipment falling out of the wall owing to operational failure caused by harsh environmental factors such as strong winds and the unpredictability of rough surface conditions. As a result, w attempted to design a wall-sticking aerial robot platform that can fly to and stick to any spot on the structure. The sensor probe is "sticked" on the ferro-magnetic surface of the structure by electro-magnetic hold/mount devices on the robot.
