Industrial Computed Tomography Market size was valued at $320 million in 2020 and it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 6.1% during 2021-2026. Computed Tomography (CT) scan is a diagnosis device used with combinations of many X-ray images taken from different angles. This imaging machine scans the object to produce cross-sectional images of parts inside the object. This is also known as X-ray Computed Tomography (X-ray CT) or Computerized Axial Tomography scan (CAT scan). The growth is mainly attributed to increasing investments in industries for precise measurement equipment for cone beam scanning, 3D scanners and computed tomography (CT) techniques. The high adoption of CT method over industrial radiography techniques and reverse engineering applications will further boost the Industrial Computed Tomography market during the forecast period.
Industrial Computed Tomography Market Segment Analysis – By Type
Cone beam scan held the major market share of 39.3% in 2020. Cone beam scanning is the advanced method and it is highly adopted in major number of industries owing to its converting nature of 2D images to 3D volume rendering of the internal and external geometries of the inspection part. These scanning is highly used in healthcare applications and therefore increases the use of this equipment, thereby driving the market.
