The adoption of precision engineering practices by manufacturers with a focus on accuracy and reliability in the manufacturing of products has resulted in an increase in the application of metrology systems in various verticals. Different types of metrology systems used to achieve precision engineering processes include surface & roughness measurement, image processing, nanoscale metrology, optronics, intelligent data analysis, 3D shape measurement and others.

The automotive and semiconductor industries are moving towards automation to minimise operational costs, to attain more accuracy & precision in terms of production and to minimise the number of defected products, which is boosting the adoption of metrology systems.

The next-generation metrology systems are easy to use, highly perceptive and customisable, which enables companies to achieve complete automation, and this is expected boost their adoption by other sectors in the coming years.

Metrology systems aid in cost minimisation, precision & accuracy in measurement, and this has resulted in increasing the adoption of metrology systems for applications in various sectors. Manufacturers are increasingly investing in metrology systems to minimise their operational expenses.

Metrology systems are witnessing high adoption in pharmaceutical companies as they help maintain consistency and accuracy during the production of medicines. Several developments in metrology systems with reference to display technology, steady growth of the market and recent developments & innovations being witnessed in metrology systems are some of the factors expected to drive the global metrology systems market during the forecast period.

Metrology Systems Market: Drivers and challenges

Increase in the usage of metrology systems for applications in aerospace & defence and automotive verticals is expected to support the growth of the metrology systems market during the forecast period.

The increasing adoption of in-line metrology systems is an emerging trend that enables the integration of automated, accurate and reliable measurements into production lines. In-line metrology systems are essential for the widespread adoption of Industry 4.0 practices that involve Machine to Machine (M2M) communication.
