Metrology Software: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn - Since the 1970’s, technological advances have led to the advent of computer aided measurement techniques for regulating industrial manufacturing and for quality improvement in various products. Further, with the emergence of the trend towards precision engineering in instrumentation and metrology, the drive towards developing advanced metrology software received a massive boost, which led to the innovation of ground breaking metrology solutions delivering precise results. New generation metrology software solutions are highly intuitive, easy-to-use, full-featured, and customizable. As the manufacturing industry heads towards an era of complete automation, steady demand is expected for metrology software.

Metrology software is used for numerous applications including measurement and evaluation of positional and form tolerances, analysis and understanding of measurements, performing review solutions, and surface defect analysis, among others. Major benefits of metrology software driving its adoption include high design flexibility and accuracy; hardware independent features that allow the software to support multiple combinations of legacy hardware; and ability to integrate several functions within a single unit thereby minimizing space requirements and size of equipment.

Also driving growth in the market is international standardization of metrology that addresses common issues such as how often each quantity will be measured and what specific instrument technology will be used to measure the same. Standardization of measurements used in metrology software has enabled high levels of interoperability and easier integration into metrology equipment. Another key driver offering significant growth opportunities includes the software’s increasing application in the manufacture of various parts and components in core industries such as textile, biomedical, automotive, heavy equipment, aerospace and shipbuilding, renewable energy, electronics, defense, telecommunications, satellites and space, consumer goods and household appliances, among others.

Technology innovations in metrology software such as Point Cloud Metrology Software, Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing, Laser Scanning Technology, On-Machine Metrology Software, Multisensor Metrology Software, Automated Metrology Software and Robotic Metrology have all contributed to its widespread adoption in the manufacturing sector.

As stated by the new market research report on Metrology Software, Asia Pacific represents the largest and the fastest growing regional market worldwide with a CAGR of 7.9% over the analysis period.
