Global Optical Metrology Market: Drivers and Restraints
The rising awareness about the benefits of optical metrology systems such as higher efficiency in larger volumes along with faster-measuring capability is boosting their demand. Moreover, the increasing emphasis on matching international quality standards and low precision of existing measuring equipment are fuelling the global optical metrology market. Furthermore, the shortage of skilled precision machine operators, especially in developing economies is working in favor of the growth of the market. Since optical metrology systems form an important part of the semiconductor manufacturing processes, the increasing demand for semiconductors and consumer electronics globally is, therefore, augmenting the market.
On the other hand, the global optical metrology market is restrained by the lack of global standardization which can be applied across different sectors. Moreover, the high cost incurred for setting up optical metrology facility is hampering the growth of the market. However, the flourishing growth of the end-user sectors such as automotive and aerospace is likely to open new avenues for manufacturers in the market.
