Infrastructure Safety to Ramp up Demand for Concrete Structure Testing

Earlier, bridges were constructed with concrete material. As a result, these bridges started to deteriorate owing to decay and distress caused by corrosion in reinforcing bars. To obviate damages caused by corrosion in concrete bridges, demand for bridge inspection services is anticipated to soar in the foreseeable future.

The concrete structure testing segment is foreseen to grow 2.5X faster than the steel structure testing by the end of 2029. On the other hand, steel structure testing is estimated to account for around 26% revenue share of the market by 2019 end and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 2.8% during the forecast period.
