Move toward integrated industrial manufacturing to drive the demand for metrology solutions & software, finds Frost & Sullivan

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – December 16, 2019 – The push for continuous measurements due to industries’ shift to smart/digital manufacturing is creating an urgent need for advanced metrology solutions. The rising complexity of devices and demand for precise measurements in industries such as automotive, aerospace and defense, electronics, and medical are expected to propel the $425.4 million market toward $559.9 million by 2023 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.6%.

“The drive toward automating processes with measurements and inspection moving closer to the assembly line is driving the demand for optical and non-contact inspection,” said Ram Ravi, Industry Analyst, Measurement & Instrumentation. “Manufacturing trends such as miniaturization are further helping to accelerate the adoption of technologies such as computed tomography (CT) in dimensional metrology.”
