    The relative apathy of the industrial community to take advantage of the significant benefits of acoustic emission is discussed against the background of the current state of the technology. Examples of immediate applications are noted. It is suggested that developing trends necessitate timely initiation of industrial utilization and that such efforts and the experience gained therein are a prerequisite to the realization of the technical benefits of acoustic emission and the establishment of proper and adequate guidelines.
