Material Testing Market Dynamics and Trends

The global material testing market is anticipated to witness significant growth with the range of building constructions, renovation, and refurbishing activities in fast-growing economies such as China, India, and Southeast Asia.

Construct construction in India is in full swing. Some of the projects include the development of the Pallava industrial township worth USD 4.18 billion, the Construction of EWS, LIG, and MIG houses, and the development of infrastructure work under PMAY Package C in Jabalpur worth USD 1.78 billion, the Construction of EWS, LIG, and MIG houses and development of infrastructure work under PMAY package worth USD 1.76 billion are a few projects. 

Therefore, the range of construction activity and scope for new construction projects in the region is set to drive the material testing market.

COVID-19 Impact on Material Testing Market Growth

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the global economy and halted the critical processes of almost all companies. Therefore, even the global material testing market suffered due to it. The disturbances in supply chain management and transportation of goods and services hurt the growth of the market. Many testing units were disrupted due to government-enforced lockdowns and curfews worldwide, which led to losses and wastage of many material testing machines. The pandemic also significantly changed consumer demand and behavior. Consumers refrained from purchasing non-essential products amid the pandemic. The uncertain and unexpected situation caused by the pandemic significantly impacted the market, slowing its growth. However, the post-pandemic scene has improved and the material testing market has recovered. The market is set to grow at a high rate.

Material Testing Market Segmentation and Shares Analysis

Based on type, the material testing market is classified into metal, plastics, rubber and elastomers, ceramics, composites, and others

Metal was the dominant material segment in 2019. Parameters that are tested in the metal material include functionality, measurement, loading capability, water resistance, pressure, tension, strength, bend test, chemical composition, steel strand test, corrosion resistance, and more. Federal law insists manufacturers and importers test many consumer products for compliance with consumer product safety requirements.

Universal testing machines are the majorly used machine for testing metals owing to their ability to perform tensile, compression, and bend tests. In addition, the cheap availability of universal testing machines is a factor contributing to the use of universal testing machines for metal testing.

Metal material testing machines find applications in aerospace, rail, nuclear, automotive, oil and gas, submarine, power generation, fertilizer, fabricators, and foundries.

Based on the end-use industry, the material testing market is classified into automotive, construction, educational institutions, and others

Construction application was the dominant segment in 2019. Different types of materials are used for construction purposes that include aggregates, bricks, bitumen, emulsions, cement, fly ash, concrete, soil, rock, salt-glazed stoneware, pipes and fittings, steel, cement concrete tiles, gypsum building plaster, concrete, and bituminous mix designs, water, sand, paver blocks, admixture, timber & wood, plywood & ply board. Therefore, this broad range of materials needs to be tested for quality and to get specifications. This quality of materials ensures the stability of the structure and specifications are used to get the required amount of material.

The prospects in the construction will likely experience robust growth with a pipeline full of prestigious and major projects that includes A massive infrastructure plan in the USA which is on the way for an announcement in the near term, that includes extensions to federal grants, incentives, and permitting simplification to encourage local programs.

Therefore, the various types of raw materials involved in the building construction industry and the range of construction projects that are in the pipeline will bring in demand for material testing equipment across the globe.
