Profilometer Market 2018-2028: Industry Compliances to Serve a Pivotal Role in Dictating NPD

Profilometer Market: Overview

From the past few years, constant advancements in testing equipment are creating an increasing demand for different types of devices, as they help improve the efficiency and accuracy of various processes. Manufacturers of profilometers are undertaking the standardization of their products so as to offer industry-compliant products.

Increasing profilometer applications in identification of the topography of both, static as well as dynamic materials, is creating new opportunities for manufacturers to improve their product features. Different industry verticals are demanding profilometers, especially contact profilometers, for maintaining standardized quality of their products.

Profilometers are used for identifying and studying the surface morphology, surface roughness, and heights of steps. For detecting the profile of a surface, a profilometer is used in industrial applications. The adoption of profilometers is expected to increase significantly due to their ability to measure the precision of a surface with very high accuracy.

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.
