Metrology Market: Region, Key Players, Competition and Forecast to 2027


Metrology is the scientific study of measurement which involves precise and accurate measurement solutions for industrial tools and components. It is used for inspection & quality control functions to ensure proper functioning of industrial products in the end-consumer market. It has a wide range of industrial applications, such as analyzing the surface, shape and dimension of the machine parts and tools at every stage of the manufacturing process.




Metrology is performed across industries to evaluate the uncertainty in tools and equipment as well as errors in products. It plays a crucial role in critical manufacturing and assembling operations in an industry. Laser trackers, coordinated measuring machines (CMM), flexible robotic systems, 3D scanners, digitizers and various other products are being used in industries to maintain precision and accuracy within a product. Industries such as automotive, aerospace, manufacturing, consumer electronics, medical and energy & power, follow international manufacturing standards in order to manufacture error and risk free product.

The global metrology market had been valued at USD 607 million in the year 2016, which is expected to reach USD 1,255 million by the end of the forecast period growing at about 7% CAGR.


The major growth driver for this market is the growing quality requirement in industrial products & services. It is further supported by factors such as increase in the use of technically advanced measurement devices in industries and growing adoption of high tech robots for industrial applications such as automation, energy harvesting, and semiconductor wafers inspection. However, lack of technical expertise for operating precision products especially in small & medium size industries, has restrained the adoption of coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) and optical digitizers & scanners (ODS).
