The report reveals that 3D Touch Probes and 2D Spindle Probe types will dominate the machine tool touch probe market and are expected to collectively account for more than 80% of market share over the forecast period. The global machine tool touch probe market is estimated to be pegged at US$ 538.3 Mn by the end of 2018. Moreover, the machine tool touch probe market is estimated to create total incremental $ opportunity worth US$ 218.0 Mn by the end of forecast period.

Global Machine Tool Touch Probe Market Dynamics

Machine tool touch probes can operate in conditions in which humans cannot sustain themselves or in conditions in which humans cannot operate optimally, such as when accuracy is the primary factor. Due to this reason, machine tool touch probes have been in high demand in the manufacturing industry in the global market. Manual measurement of work pieces is being replaced by machine tool touch probes as they reduce any chances of inaccuracy and also increase the potential for accurate workflows. This particular factor will accelerate the growth of the machine tool touch probe market over the forecast period. Moreover, human personnel can work for only a number of limited hours whereas machines and their components are capable of working continuously.

Growth in research and development activities by prominent market participants is estimated to create several growth opportunities for the machine tool touch probe market in the coming future. Increasing demand and competition will encourage manufacturers to invest on research and development. This is expected to further create opportunities for the augmentation of the machine tool touch probes market in the coming years.

However, lack of skilled professionals for operation and maintenance of machine tool touch probes may hamper the growth of the machine tool touch probe market over the forecast period. Moreover, the initial cost associated with the machine tool touch probes is on the higher side. This may be one of the prime reasons which may derail the growth of the machine tool touch probes market over the forecast period.
