Global Profilometer Market Report 2019: Market Value is Expected to Reach USD 568 Million in 2026

Global Profilometer Market Report 2019: Market Value is Expected to Reach USD 568 Million in 2026

A profilometer is a device for measuring surface profile. In addition, it is used for quantifying the roughness of the surface. The vertical resolution of the surface, which is the resolution between the high point and low point is usually measured at the nanometer level by providing lateral resolutions through a profilometer. The profilometer is used for both static as well as dynamic topography.

The study projects that the Profilometer market will register a 4.38% CAGR in terms of revenue, which is expected to reach USD 568 million in 2026 from USD 421 million in 2019.

The demand in the fields of electronics, semiconductors, and automobiles are set to fuel the global profilometer market, resulting in increased demand for profilers in various regions. Increasing regulations and policies increase product standard and quality. In addition, profiler manufacturers are actively involved in product development and are innovating new advanced profiler technologies, which are expected to create great opportunities for the profiler market in the forecast period. On flip side, the higher cost of profiler installation is expected to be the biggest challenge that will adversely affect market growth.

Highlight: Key Trends of the Global Profilometer Market

Non-contact profilometer segment is predicted to create a huge opportunity for the market

Based on type, the profilometer market is divided into contact profilometer and non-contact profilometer. Non-contact profilometer is further subdivided into time-resolved profilometer and fiber-based optical profilometer. Furthermore, the non-contact profilometer segment is expected to create a huge opportunity for the profilometer market during the forecast period. The contact profilometer segment is expected to maintain its market share over the forecast period. Contact profilometers are considered to be the most reliable measurements owing to the fact that they can directly touch the sample. Additionally, it provides a clear wave profile and is also capable of measuring long distance measurements. All these factors are expected to boost the profilometer market over the forecast period.

Automotive industry segment is leading the profilometer market

Based on application, this market is divided into Semiconductor Industry, Mechanical Types, Automotive Industry, and Others. Increasing technological advancement is growing the automation and automotive industries. Growing the automation trend will boost the market of profilometer in the automotive industry. The automotive industry is estimated to occupy the largest market share in the forecast period.

Asia-Pacific – The Largest Regional Market

In terms of production value, Asia-Pacific is the largest market with a proportion of 44.16%, followed by North America and Europe, accounting for 26.31% and 24.19% respectively. Rapid industrialization in material processing and other industries in the Asia-Pacific region is poised to fuel the profilometer market significantly over the forecast period. India, China, and Japan are expected to drive the region during the forecast period. The growth in North America can be attributed to increasing applications in the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries. Europe is projected to hold a substantial market share, due to the increasing preference for technology-based testing equipment for adding excellence in products. As compared to Europe, Middle East & Africa and Latin America are projected to show a lower growth rate during the forecast period 2019 – 2026.
