3D Metrology Market size to surpass $25 Bn by 2032

  • Published Date: March 15, 2023

3D Metrology Market size is projected to exceed USD 25 billion by 2032, according to a recent research report announced by Global Market Insights Inc.

Surging demand for non-contact inspection systems for automobile manufacturing is expected to have a positive impact on the 3D metrology market. In recent years, the automobile sector has witnessed a substantial transformation from conventional to electric mobility, necessitating the demand for advanced manufacturing facilities. With rapid digitization and automation, manufacturers worldwide are investing heavily in 3D CT automated X-ray inspection (AXI), 3D solder paste inspection (SPI), and 3D automated optical inspection (AOI). Moreover, several automobile and aviation companies are boosting innovations and advancements in manufacturing through hefty funding initiatives.

Surging 3D inspection system application scope in industrial parts production to drive industry growth

3D metrology market valuation from the software component segment crossed USD 2 billion in 2022. Novel software solutions are gaining significant traction in various industries as they have the ability to provide comprehensive and self-explanatory reports with textual and graphical data for the analysis and identification of production trends and real-time deviation.

Over the past few years, the use of CAD/CAM tools has increased substantially in the field of designing, accelerating the need for tooling, sheet metal, and production engineering. 3D inspection systems help test and investigate part components with the help of multiple software for failure analysis, wall thickness distribution, and dimensional analysis. These systems are further deployed in the pre-production stage of the manufacturing life cycle of medical device components, engineered parts, aerospace castings, and automotive piston heads.

Increasing semiconductor production to foster demand for 3D metrology

The 3D metrology market share from semiconductors is poised to reach over USD 2.5 billion by the end of 2032. With the growing burden on semiconductor production, manufacturers are rapidly integrating metrology for semiconductor fabrication in order to maximize their yield while cutting costs. For instance, in February 2023, Infinitesima, a U.K.-based leader in advanced metrology solutions provider, announced the distribution of its Metron3D metrology systems for semiconductor applications. The growing demand for semiconductors is thus expected to favor 3D metrology adoption to boost manufacturing.
