Metrology Systems Market: Overview
Metrology is the science of measurement and is important in to areas as manufacturing, process and instrumentation industries. The manufacturing industry is observing high demand for metrology system due to the increasing demand for reducing errors during the manufacturing process and developing the product life cycle.
Metrology systems are highly perceptive, customizable, and easy to use in QC labs, engineering labs, and research departments to solve all the instrumentation and measurement needs, which enables companies to achieve complete automation and enhance production. The metrology system uses advanced technology that saves time, product development costs, by measuring the sight dimension of various objects that are difficult to measure.
The adoption of precision engineering methods by manufacturers with a focus on reliability and accuracy in the manufacturing of products has increased in the application of the metrology system.
Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic Outbreak on Metrology Systems Market
COVID-19 is the most significant problem to affect the technology industry in 2020. The metrology system market has been impacted by the outbreak of COVID- 19 across all regions, as all manufacturing companies are either completely shut down for production or operating at very limited production.
The metrology system is used for a wide variety of measurement applications such as accuracy and precision measure, within these manufacturing industries.
Historically, the process instrumentation & measurement market grew around US$ 18 Bn globally, at an increased CAGR of 6% over 2019. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the market is projected to decline by nearly 5%-7% in 2020, which also impacts the metrology system market.
However, according to approximations, if the COVID-19 pandemic condition gets controlled during Q3-Q4, 2020, the process instrumentation market would recover soon and should return to normal levels with steady growth.
Metrology Systems Market: Dynamics
Increasing demand for 3D metrology system for quality and accuracy analytics
The metrology system benefit in precision, cost minimization, and accuracy in measurement have resulted in increasing the adoption of metrology systems across various sectors. The advancement in the metrology system is increasing the demand for 3D metrology system.
The 3D metrology system mainly used for quality control for accuracy in production such as industrial 3D scanning technology, optical 3D coordinate measuring machine, 3D motion sensor, and 3D measuring machine.
The 3D metrology system is quickly gaining traction in the aerospace, energy and power, automotive, and construction industries. The use of the 3D metrology system is increasing with the growing requirement to produce quality output in industrial applications.
Increasing adoption of CMM metrology system
The coordinate measuring machines (CMM) allows automated manufacturing process to increase production efficiency and product quality. These CMM devices include optical CMM, handheld scanner, articulated arm, laser scanning devices and other devices to increase the operational productivity.
The CMM metrology system is used to assemble and test components against the design fixed in the manufacturing and assembly process. The adoption of the CMM metrology system in the automated manufacturing industry reduces the total operational cost, improve quality, and maintain the continuous flow of production which increases the demand of the metrology system.
For instance, in January 2020, LK Metrology has launched a new CMM measurement services section for performing contract dimensional inspection utilizing the latest metrology software.
