Industrial radiography is a nondestructive method of materials testing which is playing a significant role in the remarkable progress made in scientific technology and industry in the recent years. Radiation penetration technique is the most widely used nondestructive method employed for testing in industries, offering the advantages of high versatility, ability and reliability to provide a permanent information record. Industrial radiation is performed commonly by using two different sources of radiation, namely, Gamma ray sources and X-ray sources in order to inspect the internal flaws in products. These sources of radiation are used extensively for the examination of pipes and pressure vessels in chemical plants, aircraft and vehicles and gas and oil pipelines.

Industrial radiography is used by manufacturers for surface inspection and flaw or crack detection in their products. Gamma radiography is used in industries for quality control and safety assessment purposes. It is used widely in the petrochemical, building and chemical industries for radiographic inspection of boilers, pipes and structures where safety and economic consequences of failure can be critical. Industrial radiography is used in wide range of applications such as automation and transportation, aerospace, gas and petrochemical and manufacturing owing to the growing demand for high-quality and low-cost products. This method is deployed widely in the automotive sector and it has become one of the important tools for the automotive manufacturers to inspect products during their production and produce high-quality products with tighter tolerances.

Industrial Radiography Market: Drivers and Restraints

The factors which are primarily driving the global industrial radiography market are growing demand of industrial radiography in aerospace and automotive industries, strict safety regulations by various governments and need for accuracy of inspection with the integration of advanced software.
