Industrial Radiography Market Overview
Industrial radiography is a method of flaw detection in manufacturing components, internal structures of devices and verifying their integrity using electromagnetic radiations such as x-rays and gamma rays. Industrial radiography is used for inspection of products, inspection of welds, airport security, non-intrusive cargo scanning and various other applications. The digital sensor based radiography segment is anticipated to showcase the highest growth in the filming technique sector on account of rise in shift of the consumer market towards more digitized methods. Additionally, use of penetrants in order to enhance contrast for delamination and planar cracks detection using industrial radiography is estimated to propel the market robustly during the forecast period. On account of the capability of electromagnetic radiation to penetrate, travel through, and exit various materials due to their short wavelength, industrial radiography is extensively used.
