Report Code: AIR 0329 Report Format: PDF + Excel

Industrial Computed Tomography Market Overview

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.
