Profilometer Market: Drivers and Restraints
Rapid industrialization in the manufacturing industry is leading to increasing operations of material property detection, and this factor is expected to fuel the profilometer market, significantly. In addition to this, applications of profilometers in measuring different characteristics, such as flatness, step height, and volume of the material to be tested are further driving the market.
Contact profilometers measure the properties of a sample through direct contact with a surface, and this is considered to be the most reliable method for measurements. This factor is creating an increasing demand for profilometers. Increasing preference for industry-compliant profilometers, such as ASTM and ISO, from industry users is creating an increasing demand, and hence, driving the market growth.
On the other hand, the higher cost involved in the installation process of profilometers is expected to be the most significant challenge adversely affecting the growth of the market.
