“Coordinate measuring machine (CMM) market projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.00% from 2018 to 2023”
The CMM market is expected to grow from USD 2.8 billion in 2018 to USD 4.1 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 8.00% during the forecast period. Highly accurate inspection owing to three-dimensional (3D) data for modeling and analysis and growing interest in Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and superior quality inspections are a few key factors driving the CMM market growth. However, high cost incurred for setting up coordinate measuring machine facility still act as key restraining factors for the market growth.

“Quality control & inspection applications to hold largest share of CMM market in 2018”
Quality control & inspection applications to hold largest share of CMM market in 2018. The growth of the CMM market for quality control & inspection application can be attributed to the increase in adoption of new inspection techniques such as computer tomography and optical inspection using CMM and optical scanners in automotive and aerospace & defense industries. However, the market for reverse engineering application is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

“Automotive industry dominated CMM market during forecast period”
Automotive industry to hold the largest share of the CMM market throughout the forecast period. The automotive industry has been increasingly using optical measurement systems and CMMs, instead of conventional strain gauges, accelerometers, transducers, and extensometers for improving the safety and comfort level of a vehicle. Growing demand for vehicles, especially from developing countries, has encouraged automotive manufacturers and OEMs to opt for automation to increase production volume and meet the market demand. However, the market for heavy machinery industry is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

“CMM market in APAC to grow at highest CAGR during forecast period”
APAC to hold the largest share of the CMM market in 2018 and is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
