Highest Growing Market
According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Mechanical Testing Equipment Market is accounted for $7.56 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach $19.16 billion by 2030 growing at a CAGR of 14.2% during the forecast period. Equipment used for mechanical testing evaluates the mechanical characteristics of various materials. These apparatuses are employed in mechanical testing to determine parameters such as the breaking point, the tensile strength, the adhesion, the compression strength, and others. Torsion, tension, vibration, drop (shock), and shearing forces are just a few of the forces used in mechanical tests, which are typically carried out in quality testing labs using mechanical testing equipment like universal testing machines.
According to a study by the India Brand Equity Foundation, the Indian Government announced allocating around US$ 868 Mn under the country’s Smart City Mission to build more than 100 smart cities across India for the period 2021-2022.
The global Mechanical Testing Equipment market expected to drive growth during the forecast period. Mechanical testing equipment market expansion is greatly influenced by ongoing technological developments in testing equipment. Mechanical testing equipment's precision, effectiveness, and capabilities are improved by the integration of cutting-edge sensors, automation, and data analytics. Features like real-time monitoring, digital controls, and cloud-based data management systems enhance testing procedures, lower human error, and offer actionable insights for better decision-making.
Insufficient skilled workforce
The global Mechanical Testing Equipment market expected to hinder growth during the forecast period. Mechanical testing equipment requires specialized knowledge and expertise to operate and interpret the results. The efficient use of mechanical testing equipment may be hampered by a lack of qualified workers with the required technical skills. Moreover, companies may experience difficulties finding and keeping qualified employees, which may have an impact on market expansion.
Importance of non-destructive testing is increasing
The global Mechanical Testing Equipment market expected to drive growth during the forecast period. Techniques for non-destructive testing (NDT) are becoming more popular in sectors like infrastructure, oil and gas, and aerospace. The benefit of NDT is that it allows for damage-free inspection and assessment of the consistency of materials and components. Moreover, the increased emphasis on safety, preventive maintenance, and asset management presents opportunities for manufacturers of mechanical testing equipment to provide cutting-edge NDT solutions and increase their market presence.
Replacement through non-mechanical testing methods
During the anticipated period, the global market for mechanical testing equipment is anticipated to limit growth. Alternative testing techniques, like non-mechanical and non-destructive testing methods, could pose threats to the market. Additionally, in some cases, mechanical testing can be effectively replaced by modern technologies like ultrasonic testing, X-ray inspection, and infrared thermography. In particular industries and applications, the use of these alternative techniques can lessen the need for mechanical testing machinery.
The market for mechanical testing tools has been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. A temporary slowdown in the market was brought on by the widespread disruptions brought on by the pandemic, including lockdown procedures, supply chain problems, and reduced industrial activity. Mechanical testing equipment was less necessary as a result of decreased demand and postponed projects in many industries, including the automotive, aerospace, and manufacturing ones. However, there is a growing understanding of the significance of quality control and safety precautions as industries gradually recover and adjust to the new normal. Due to this, there is now more emphasis on implementing rigorous testing procedures, such as mechanical testing, to guarantee product dependability and compliance with health and safety regulations.
The Universal Testing Machine segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period
During the anticipated period, the segment of universal testing machine is anticipated to hold the largest market share for mechanical testing equipment. The mechanical characteristics of various materials, such as metals, plastics, rubber, and composites, are assessed using universal testing machines, which are adaptable testing apparatus. They can carry out a variety of tests, including tensile, compression, bending, and shear ones, enabling thorough material characterization. UTMs are frequently used for quality control, research and development, and material testing in sectors like automotive, aerospace, manufacturing, and research labs.
The Semiconductor and Electronics segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The semiconductor and electronics segment is anticipated to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period. First off, the semiconductor and electronics industries are undergoing a rapid period of technological innovation, which is resulting in the creation of components that are smaller, more effective, and more complex. Stringent quality control and testing procedures are required by the rising demand for dependable and high-performance electronic devices, which is fueling the demand for sophisticated mechanical testing tools.
Region with largest share:
During the forecast period, the Asia-Pacific region is anticipated to hold the largest share. Major manufacturing hubs like China, Japan, South Korea, and India are located in the Asia-Pacific region, and their thriving industrial sectors are what are driving the demand for mechanical testing equipment. These nations are renowned for their prowess in the manufacturing, automotive, electronics, and aerospace sectors. The demand for mechanical testing equipment is further boosted by the region's emphasis on quality control, adherence to international standards, and rising research and development expenditures.
Region with highest CAGR:
The region of South America is anticipated to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Mechanical testing equipment is in high demand in South America due to the region's expanding manufacturing sector, which includes sectors like consumer electronics, automotive, and aerospace. The market is expanding as a result of the expansion of infrastructure projects in the area, urbanization, and investments in renewable energy sources. Additionally, the healthcare industry is growing in the area, which opens up opportunities for the use of mechanical testing tools in the production and quality control of medical devices.
