Acoustic Emission Testing Market: Introduction
Acoustic emission testing is used for the analysis and detection of acoustic signals in order to gain valuable information regarding discontinuity in a material and its origin. Acoustic emissions can have a serious impact on material properties and these emissions can be generated from natural events such as earthquakes, which can lead to the initialization of cracks, dislocation and slip movements, twinning, melting and phase transformations in metals. Attributing to its versatility, acoustic emission testing has many industrial applications in assessing structural integrity, testing leaks, detecting flaws or monitoring weld quality. Increasing emphasis on improving production quality and government initiatives on implementing NDT solutions are anticipated to drive the growth of the market in the coming years. Acoustic emission testing can be done through various equipment including amplifiers, sensors and detection equipment. Among all these equipment, acoustic emission testing sensors play a critical role in examining material behavior as they detect high frequencies generated due to leaks, corrosion and defects. Furthermore, acoustic emission inspection services account for a considerable share in the market, which can be attributed to the benefits provided by the inspection of components and eventually result in increasing the operational life of the component.
