Global Industrial Computed Radiography Market to Reach $68.8 Million in 2033: Emerging Demand from the Aerospace and Defense Industry Drives Growth -

The "Industrial Computed Radiography Market - A Global and Regional Analysis: Focus on Application, Components, and Country - Analysis and Forecast, 2023-2033" report has been added to's offering.

The global industrial computed radiography market is estimated to reach $68.8 million in 2033 from $59.1 million in 2022, at a growth rate of 1.49% during the forecast period 2023-2033.

The growth in the industrial computed radiography system market is expected to be driven by the evolution of Industry 4.0 practices and an increase in the need for portable radiography systems.

Market Lifecycle Stage

Conventionally, the industrial non-destructive radiography inspection methods are carried out using the conventional X-Ray machine that uses film to capture images of the defects, and the technicians identify the defects from the film manually. This method consumed huge time to capture the image and required skilled laborers to operate the equipment and identify images.

In addition, it requires a huge storage facility to store the films. So, the radiography solution manufacturers developed an upgraded version of conventional X-Ray solutions known as industrial computed radiography.

The industrial computed radiography solutions help the technician to capture the image using an imaging plate and convert the image into a digital format using a computed radiography (CR) reader. This reduced the time of capturing the image and helped to visualize the defects digitally using the review station and acquisition software. Furthermore, it helps to save the image of the defects digitally, which requires the cost spent on storage facilities and can be shared with clients easily.

One of the major factors attributing to the demand of industrial computed radiography solution is the rising demand from the commercial aviation industry, which is driven by the order backlog for next-generation commercial aircraft that is expected to be built.


The global industrial computed radiography market is observing steady growth, which is expected to drive investments and partnerships across computed radiography technology. The major challenge in the industrial computed radiography market is there is lack of skilled laborers to conduct non-destructive testing using computed radiography systems.

In addition, the growth of the digital radiography system increases the demand for real-time image visualization and automatic defect identification technology. This leads the developer to move toward the digital radiography system, which affects the growth of industrial computed radiography systems in the market.

In addition, the oil and gas and aerospace industries are looking for a more compact and portable radiography system that offers real-time image visualization even offshore to rectify the defect quickly and efficiently. Therefore, non-destructive testing service providers and industrial computed radiography system manufacturers are gradually moving toward digital radiography systems from computed radiography systems.
