Metrology Market Poised to Maintain its 6.82% CAGR Between 2016 to 2027 Analysis with Hexagon AB, Carl Zeiss, Mitutoyo, Renishaw, Perceptron Inc., 3D Digital Corporation, Faro Technologies


Pune, Aug. 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global metrology market set to surpass a valuation of USD 1200 by the year 2027, reflecting an impressive growth rate. Europe to spearhead the global metrology market over the next couple of years.

Demand for measuring tools that facilitate product manufacturing with high precision is on the rise. Such tools, in the form of metrology solutions find widespread application in large-scale manufacturing sectors such automotive, aerospace, and power. As per the latest data released by Market Research Future (MRFR), the global metrology market will expand at a compound annual growth rate of 6.82% from 2016 and 2027. Currently, the market stands at over a valuation of USD 600 Mn. Global sales of measurement components have remained strong in recent years. This is can be attributed to the steadfast expansion of the manufacturing sector in Latin America and Asia Pacific. These countries are undergoing rapid industrialization and urbanization and are touted as the growth markets of the future.

As modern manufacturing becomes more dynamic, focus on precision and accuracy further intensifies. Technologies continue to evolve leading to creation of complex designs. To keep up with the pace, new metrology solutions are being developed that can work in tandem with the new-age engineering. For many, particularly the small-size businesses, gaining access to cutting-edge metrology tools can make a noticeable difference to the ROI by reducing manual labor, downtime and most importantly errors. However, the high cost of such tools limits their proliferation in startups and small-scale manufacturers.
