Investments in NDT companies

I represent a private investment company who is looking for interesting industries to invest in. I am trying to determine how big the market for NDT is in the US. Ideally, I would like to know how many companies there are providing NDT, and what the total amount of revenue earned by all NDT companies is. I know this is a technical forum, but if anyone could point me in the right direction, I would appreciate it. Thanks.

Re: Investments in NDT companies Contact the American Society Of NDT Ohio they have some publications on market studies although some of them are a little dated.

Also look up Frost & Sullivan who conducted a market study recently.

You will find these studies a guide indicator but be cautious they are all flawed and incomplete. They are based on the high profile, high volume NDT Companies. As such they fail to recognise that there is a huge diversity in NDT across a myriad of industries. Within Industry Specific Centres there are numerous niche NDT companies who have deceptively high volumes. There is also the issue that many of the studies are focussed on 'public domain' information. In the case of privately owned companies 'guesstimates' are used which from our own reserach we know can often be off the mark by Millions of US Dollars.
You may find it more useful to select certain specific market segments - do an in depth study and then extrapolate against the market size of each industry.
