Industrial metrology is replacing the traditional method of production and manufacturing as they produce a product more accurately and quickly and maintain high standards, which is not achieved with the conventional method. Additionally, the advanced metrology equipment has a preset tolerance level for various component; the machine self-diagnoses the component and decide the tolerance level accordingly, and if not, alert the operator, which ensures quality control; such factors are driving the market growth.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the growth of the market. Limited raw material stock and delays in their transportation owing to the global shutdown severely impacted the market growth. Moreover, negligible operations across various verticals and a temporary halt of manufacturing units led to delays in the production line of equipment required for industrial metrology, hampering the market growth.

The advancement in metrology technologies has increased the demand for cloud technology and software packages, including laser scanning, robotic metrology, and point cloud, which are necessary for evaluating the composition of various industries; such factors are expected to propel the market over the forecast period.
