Global 3D Metrology Market to Grow at 9.4% During 2022-2027, Impelled by Extensive R&D Investments

Published on May 15, 2020

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "3D Metrology Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global 3D metrology market reached a value of US$ 8.6 Billion in 2021. 3D metrology refers to a range of scanning technologies that monitor the quality and physical measurements of various manufacturing components. It aids in analyzing the shape, dimension, and surface of these machine parts during the production process. 3D metrology utilizes several hardware and software tools, such as the optical digitizer and scanner (ODS), coordinate measuring machine (CMM), 3D automated optical inspection (AOI) system, and video measuring machine (VMM) to reverse engineer and analyze defects in the materials. As a result, it finds applications across various industries, including defense, aerospace, architecture, automotive, and medical.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global 3D Metrology Market Trends:

The global 3D metrology market is primarily being driven by the increasing focus on improved quality control of manufacturing materials. This factor has led to a rise in investments made in research and development (R&D) activities to introduce 3D metrology technologies for offering enhanced precision during the production process. Additionally, the widespread adoption of 3D technology in the automotive and aviation industries to scan and inspect intricate components, digitally recreate parts, and analyze corrosion are further supporting the market growth.
