Metrology Market: Overview

The study of measurement is known as metrology. It facilitates a shared understanding of units and is crucial for tying together human endeavors. Metrology enforces, validates, and confirms defined traceability, accuracy, and reliability criteria. These elements are significant because they affect the reliability of the measurements. Since these criteria may differ significantly, the government and the relevant authorities have enforced them. As a result, calibration laboratories validate and evaluate these standards about a recognized quality system. Since they are centered on the accuracy, industries, including the production of medical devices, the automobile, and the aerospace sectors, have a high adoption of metrology equipment. Systems for measuring dimensions reduce the likelihood of minor damage and significantly reduce manufacturing time and expense.

Global Metrology Market 2023–2032 (By Product)

Growth Factors

The development of portable metrology equipment and software-driven process automation for industry-specific bespoke services has accelerated market expansion. The need for Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) and Computer-Aided Designed (CAD) based processes is expected to increase because of the demand for high precision and fewer tolerance limitations in the automotive, aerospace, medical, electronics, and other industrial sectors. Power generation, electronics, and the automobile industries all need components with tight tolerances and high accuracy. The need for metrology equipment and services is also being driven by an increase in the global quality requirements for precise management throughout the industry.

Service providers offer metrology services, which are measurement services, for a range of end-use industries, including automotive, aerospace, manufacturing, and power generation, among others. Over the forecasted period, it is predicted that the global market for metrology services will overgrow as more applications are being developed in various end-use industries. These services assist in boosting efficiency by increasing production while maintaining the exact resource requirements.

To perform tasks like quality control and inspection, 3D measurement, product quality optimization, reverse engineering, etc., throughout the manufacturing process, several types of metrology products may be used singly or as a component of an integrated system. However, high-precision equipment is expensive, making it difficult for producers to maintain their inventory consistently. Due to this, the service sector has emerged, allowing manufacturers to use outside vendors for their measurement needs.

Segmental Overview

The metrology market is segmented into the product and end user. According to the product, the coordinate measuring machine (CMM) segment is expected to increase at the quickest rate. For testing, assembly, design, profiling, and reverse engineering of parts, CMM offers accurate measurements of objects. The industrial automation industry is expected to drive the market for metrology services during the forecast period due to the high demand for the calibration, machine installation, and retrofitting services offered by CMM.

The global market is divided into automotive, aerospace, manufacturing, energy & power, consumer electronics, and others on the manner of the end user. In 2021, the aerospace category led the market and was anticipated to expand quickly over the forecast period. Despite its numerous advantages, composite is a challenging material that demands precise assembly with minimal error margins.

The use of metrology in the production process reduces the need to scrap or rework the material and costly errors. Additionally, metrology software helps manufacturers by enabling the creation of 3-D models instead of being constrained to rigid tooling structures. Engineers have access to more adaptable, quick-change tools thanks to 3-D models. The Long Bore CMM, a new generation of specialized coordinate measuring instruments, is helpful for more significant, crucial components like jet engine shafts. The Long Bore CMM ensures that the geometry and dimensions of such a component meet the strict standards and needs of the engine designers.

Regional Overview

The Asia-Pacific region held the most significant market share in the metrology industry. This is because the area produces defense aircraft, which is anticipated to increase the number of 3D metrology inspection applications in the aerospace and defense industry.
