Market Overview

The Metrology Software market was valued at USD 517.89 million in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 731.73 million by 2025, at a CAGR of 5.93% over the forecast period 2020 - 2025.?Metrology solutions are witnessing an evident change from being a tool that only collects data to the one that is capable of data analysis and processing also.

  • The increasing interest of enterprises in smart factories put greater importance in processing speed and data accuracy, also, emerging applications in additive manufacturing and reverse engineering are expected to be more prominent which will drive the market. Moreover, there’s an ongoing shift toward inline metrology or process-integrated measuring instruments.
  • The key advantage of metrology software is that the measurements are conducted in the production process itself rather than in measuring rooms, boosting the demand for metrology in modern plants and production lines.
  • IIoT technological advancements are quickly making Industry 4.0 a certainty, and the resulting paradigm shift is anticipated to have a great impact on almost every phase of the manufacturing sector, from machine tools to metrology.
  • In the coming future, smart measurement systems are expected to transform the production process completely. By the automated measurements done by the metrology systems, manufacturing processes will be able to auto-correct any defects, even without human intervention.

Scope of the Report

Metrology is the science of measurement. Metrology software refers to the computer tools and technology that are used for this science of measurement. This field aims to establish a standard comprehension of all measured units, both theoretical and experimental, and create definitions of different units of measurement in any science or technological field.
