Automated Optical Metrology Market, (Product: Video Measuring Machines, Laser Scanners and Coordinate Measuring Machines; Application: Automotive, Consumer Electronics, Industrial, Medical and Aerospace & Defense) - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2015 - 2021

Automated optical metrology is a dimensional analysis of objects with the help of light. There are a number objects with unknown quantities that are difficult to measure physically. Optical metrology equipments help to measure such objects and their entire non-contact dimension and provide precise and accurate measurement results. In addition, optical metrology technology is used in the quality control process to ensure optimum accuracy of products that are manufactured. Moreover, growing demand and rising sophistication of metrology services from various industries has made the automation of optical metrology solutions extremely crucial. Automated optical metrology equipments do not require human handling and makes the measurement of unknown quantities of objects easier and accurate. 

Quality control, inspection, and measurement have become an integral part of the industrial manufacturing process. There has always been the need for ensuring accurate measurement data that comply with international industry standards. International Bureau of Weights and Measures is one of the key organizations which is responsible for setting up international industry measurement standards. Companies across sectors have to follow such international measurement standards and therefore, compliance to international measurement standards is one of the major factors driving the growth of the global automated optical metrology market. Need for compliance with international industry measurement and quality standards coupled with growth in the automotive and aerospace sectors that require automated optical metrology services are the major factors driving the growth of the global automated optical metrology market. Lack of universal measurement system is the factor inhibiting the growth of the market. 

The automated optical metrology market by product has been classified into three types: video measuring machines, laser scanners, and coordinate measuring machines. Coordinate measuring machines are largely used in the manufacturing and assembly processes of various business sectors. It is a device that helps assist in the testing and measuring of products with that of the prototype products. Moreover, coordinate measuring machines are used for measuring the physical geometrical characteristics of objects. Coordinate measuring machines segment dominated the global automated optical metrology market in 2014. Increasing need for quality inspection and accurate measurement results are the major reasons driving the growth of coordinate measuring machines. Video or vision measuring machines use optical or non contact video measuring techniques for three-dimension measuring of objects. Non contact optical measuring provides accurate measurement of components that are either too delicate for physical measuring or impossible to measure. Video measuring machines provide accurate measurement results and are largely used in automotive, industrial, and aerospace sectors. Thus this market is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period from 2015 to 2021. Laser scanners are increasingly being used in material processing, manufacturing, and measuring of objects. With the help of laser scanners, companies can reduce the lead time of manufacturing products and increase production capability. Laser beams in such scanners help in the measurement and inspection of products. Laser scanners ensure faster and accurate inspection of products and are highly demanded by companies in the automotive and transportation sector.

In Europe, Germany and U.K. are the largest regional markets for automated optical metrology. In Asia Pacific, Japan, China and India are the largest contributors to the automated optical metrology market. In North America, the U.S. has been showing steady growth over the years and is one of the dominant automated optical metrology markets in the world. In RoW, South Africa is showing substantial growth and is expected to be a key market in the coming years.

Key participants in the industry include KLA Tencor Corporation (U.S.), ASML Holding NV (Netherlands), Hexagon Metrology, Inc. (Sweden), Nikon Metrology NV (Belgium) and Steinbichler Optotechnik GmbH (Germany).

This market research study analyzes the automated optical metrology market on global basis and provides estimates in terms of revenue (USD Million) from 2014 to 2021. It describes the market dynamics affecting the industry and analyzes their impact through the forecast period. Moreover, it highlights the significant opportunities for market growth in the next six years.

Optical metrology helps calibrate objects that cannot be measured physically. It is the science and technology of measuring unknown qualities with light. The measurement principle of optical metrology is based on the fact that the transmission of light is without any contact. Therefore, optical metrology is generally used in areas where physical contact cannot be made between the measuring equipment and the object to be measured. Different light sources such as narrowband, broadband and laser can also be used on measuring equipments to calibrate the measurements and retrieve the data on a receiving target. The receiving target analyzes the data with the help of software algorithms and provides an accurate result to the user. Laser scanners, coordinate measuring machines and video measuring machines are the major optical metrology products that provide precise measurement information. The growing need for compliance to international industry standards and accurate measurement data has led to the application of optical metrology products in various business sectors such as automotive, industrial and aerospace.

Optical metrology products find the largest application in the automotive sector. The automotive sector is witnessing huge growth due to the increasing usage and production of vehicles globally. Advanced optical metrology equipments that provide accurate measurement results are largely demanded by the automotive sector, where there is a requirement of measuring objects having unknown quantities. Therefore, the growth in the automotive sector is set to drive the market of automated optical metrology market across the world.

Aerospace sector is one of the booming sectors, where optical metrology finds various applications. In the civil aerospace market, civil passenger aircrafts are expected to double by the year 2030.
