According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Industrial Metrology Market is accounted for $10.9 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $17.3 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 8.1% during the forecast period. Industrial metrology is a method of scientific measurement used in the industrial sector to create precise and high-quality components. It is a set of processes, techniques and advanced equipment to measure manufacturing and other processes. A quality control procedure is a component of industrial metrology technology. The metrology concept is utilized to qualify, verify and validate test data. It is usually carried to understand the calibre and quality control in these processes. It saves on an average of 15% costs in manufacturing.

According to India Investment Grid, the USD 74 billion automobile industry is expected to reach USD 300 billion by 2026.

Market Dynamics:


Rising popularity for big data analytics

Leading industrial production facilities are outfitted with a variety of measuring tools which routinely recognises and collects over three hundred inputs. With each additional dimension in the manufacturing industry, the volume of data created has increased dramatically. An excessive amount of information sets are produced when elements and parts are consistently measured. Various businesses have begun analysing the assembly information using big data analytical techniques, which enhance several crucial production processes and thus driving the growth of the market.


High investment for setting up of metrology facility

Industrial science is widely adopted within the regions of defence, automotive, semiconductor and producing industries. The overall cost associated with installing a scientific facility comprises the costs of measuring equipment, installation and maintenance which is a significant expenditure for small and medium-sized businesses. It is challenging to achieve a specified return on investment (ROI) in line with a matching business plan. All these factors limit the expansion of the business and hinder the market growth.


Innovations in technology

Industrial metrology is developing drastically as a result of technological progress. It is also expected to create new possibilities. Modernizations like 3D items are relatively new to the market and are gaining popularity across a number of industrial sectors. The adoption of cloud services is helping the producing firms in analysis and development activities. Moreover, it helps firms to supply connected code solutions to their purchasers. All these elements are fuelling the market growth.


Lack of expertise

The efficient management of scientific discipline systems requires geometrical and dimensional measurements, internal control analysis, manufacturing processes, instrument maintenance and repair, as well as technical testing. The improper performance of the task results in undesirable consequences. The inappropriate technical information concerns the new technologies. It impacts the activity and hampers the market expansion.

Covid-19 Impact

The commercial scientific discipline market was badly affected by the corona virus epidemic due to complete shutdown and limited supply chain. The work settings have changed with fewer employees working together due to physical distance requirements. Companies are focusing on developing new technologies for cost-efficient and quick solutions to meet the requirements of clients which are regaining the stability in the market.

The hardware segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The hardware segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth, due to its high precision ability. It provides superior accuracy for measuring distance and surface separations ranging from millimetres to kilometres. The rising demand for 3D metrology equipment for quality control and inspection in automotive, aerospace, military sectors and adoption of hardware tools for quality and quantity assurance such as laser trackers, vision systems are driving the segment’s growth.

The quality control & inspection segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The quality control & inspection segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period, due to the increasing need for productivity and accuracy across various verticals. This method has complete control over the manufacturing and operational processes, which significantly lowers operating expenses and is anticipated to promote market expansion.

Region with largest share:

North America is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period owing to the presence of leading automotive and aerospace players. The rapid industrialization and growing investments in the automotive and aerospace sectors and increasing demand for metrology products from the key industries is boosting the share of the market in the region.

Region with highest CAGR:

Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to the high economic growth. This region has major key players in the market. Most of the automobile and electronics manufacturers here use industrial metrology systems during the production process for quality inspections. As the number of automobile industries is more in this region, the demand for industrial metrology market is witnessing lucrative growth.
