Key players in the market are focused on adopting product acquisition strategies, in order to enhance their market share. For instance, in March 2018, Phoenix Testlab GmbH acquired a universal testing machine, Type Inspekt 10 kN from Hegewald & Peschke, to equip its test laboratories. This universal testing machine is versatile and can be used for a wide range of tests on different components that are mainly used in the automotive sector. These tests include, cable strands (mainly electric switch) and start push-button elements.

The aerospace industry requires the highest standard of equipment and consumables to ensure repeatability and reproducibility of results. This in turn helps the aerospace industry to ensure that the chances of critical failures are vanishingly small, while maintaining efficiencies in both the design as well as production. The aerospace mechanical testing portfolio includes tensile strength and elongation testing, compression testing, impact testing, fracture toughness testing, stress rupture, fatigue testing, hardness testing, abrasion and wear testing, bend testing, pressure testing, shear testing, and torque testing. Moreover, aerospace industry relies on innovative materials to improve the aircraft’s performance, weight, and strength. Beyond material innovations, proper and thorough testing is required to assure that the new materials can withstand rigorous operational use over an extended period of time in harsh environments. Therefore, several vendors in the market are focused on investing and developing new products to expand their product portfolio. For instance, in May 2017, R-TECH Materials invested in The Zwick Roell Group’s latest composites testing technology, 250kN Zwick Universal Testing Machine, to aid its rapidly growing aerospace testing business. This 250kN Zwick Universal Testing Machine is expected to help R-TECH to carry out liquid, humidity, or temperature pre-conditioning of samples, which are essential for the aerospace sector. These factors are expected to contribute to growth of the global Brinell hardness testers market during forecast period.
