Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 - 2035

Borescope Market size is estimated to cross USD 1 Billion by the end of 2035, growing at a CAGR of 4% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of borescope was around USD 700 Million. The growing demand for non-destructive inspection is a prime factor for market growth. Every day, more than 25,000 inspections are performed in factories and on-site in the UK to detect defects and damage in an assortment of products, plants, and structures. Moreover, it is estimated that more than 120,000 inspectors are deployed worldwide. In non-destructive testing, borescopes are particularly useful for the inspection of internal components or structures where direct access is limited.

Besides this, the rising cost of loss incurred by lack of maintenance is also anticipated to augment the borescope market expansion. According to the World Corrosion Organization, corrosion costs the globe USD 2.2 trillion every year, which is more than 3% of the global GDP. In order to save these additional losses, the industries have accelerated the use of borescopes to give required regular maintenance and prevent costly breakdowns.

Borescope Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Advancement in the Camera Resolution – Advancements in camera resolution have a significant impact on the borescope market, leading to several benefits, such as enhanced image quality, improved detection capabilities, better documentation, and reporting. It also enables remote inspections to be more effective.
  • Rise in the Number of Power Generation Plants– There are currently over 440 nuclear power reactors in operation in 32 nations plus Taiwan, with a total capacity of approximately 390 GWe. Moreover, nuclear power capacity is continuously rising around the world, with approximately 60 reactors under development. Power plants strive to maximize their efficiency and output. Borescopes play a crucial role in this endeavor by allowing detailed inspection of heat exchangers, boilers, condensers, and other equipment.
  • Higher Adoption of Automation in Industries– According to the World Robotics report, 517,385 new industrial robots were installed in workplaces around the world in 2021, an all-time high. Today, the worldwide inventory of operating robots has reached a new high of over 3.5 million units. Robots are often used in industrial settings to access hard-to-reach or hazardous areas. These robots equipped with borescopes can navigate confined spaces, pipes, or complex machinery for an inspection of internal combustion.


  • The Cost of a Borescope is High- Borescopes can be expensive, especially those with advanced features and capabilities. The high cost can deter some potential customers from investing in borescope equipment, particularly small businesses or individuals with limited budgets. The affordability of borescopes remains a challenge, although prices have been decreasing over time.
  • High Competition in the Market
  • The Concerns Associated with Quality and Reliability

Borescope Segmentation

Technology (Videoscope, Semi-Rigid, Fiberscope, Rigid Borescope)

The videoscope segment in the borescope market is estimated to gain the largest revenue share of about 60% in the year 2035. Moreover, the segment garnered a revenue share of around 43% in 2022. The feature of real-time monitoring, images, and videos in high resolution and result with accurate and clear information is the major factor expanding the segment growth. Apart from this, the video scope also offers the option of recording the entire inspection and it has built-in lighting which makes the entire inspection convenient. Furthermore, the rising demand for detailed but non-destructive inspection is driving the segment’s growth.

End User (Oil & Gas, Energy & Power, Automotive, Aerospace, Chemicals, Metallurgical)

The automotive segment is poised to hold 20% share of the global borescope market in 2022 and is further expected to garner a significant share of around 46% in the year 2035. Rising demand for electric vehicles and vehicles with ADAS systems is expected to drive the segment’s growth. In 2021, around 75 million cars on the road were incorporated with ADAS features in the world. Furthermore, over ten million electric vehicles were sold worldwide in 2022, with sales predicted to increase by 35% in 2023 to 14 million. Furthermore, by 2030, the worldwide electric car supply will have grown to about 350 million vehicles. Borescopes are used to inspect the battery compartments and cells in EVs. By inserting the flexible borescope probe into the battery pack, technicians can visually inspect for any signs of damage, corrosion, or abnormalities. This helps in identifying potential issues that could affect battery performance, such as overheating, leaking electrolytes, or physical damage.
