Market Growth Factors

Increasing Adoption of 3D Data within Analytical and Modeling Applications

In order to conduct R&D activities and produce a large number of complex mechanical parts that are used in numerical machine control tools, precision machinery, auto parts, aerospace equipment, and other products, rapid industrial development creates a demand for cutting-edge testing technologies and instruments. A CMM is a precise tool that is frequently used to examine and measure intricate mechanical parts in their width, length, and height. A number of major industries, including aerospace & defense, automotive, heavy equipment, electronics, and energy & power, and medical, use 3D modeling.

Growing Integration of the Internet of Things and Cloud Computing Approaches

Every company seeks to boost profit margins while reducing operating expenses. It is unnecessary to spend a significant amount of money on servers or physical hard drives when using cloud storage. The majority of cloud service providers charge monthly fees, which are often more affordable. Additionally, cloud service providers offer pay-as-you-go options for the data storage space required to serve their customers, so they only pay for what they really need. It becomes simple for a manufacturing organization to transmit the data to the supplier of metrology equipment and receive the results.

Market Restraining Factors

The High Initial as Well as Maintenance Costs of the Equipment

Although CMMs are cost-effective, they are not inexpensive. It can be very expensive for the customer to buy a small manual CMM with just a basic probe system, computer, and software. Depending on the choices chosen and the measuring volume of the equipment, the automated system can be purchased at varying prices. The most expensive CMMs are gantry-type CMMs with very low availability and high demand. Apart from that, the total cost of ownership is extremely high, particularly for product producers with limited production capacity, due to the price of software and other auxiliary hardware, like computers and probes.

Type Outlook

On the basis of Type, the Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) Market is bifurcated into Fixed CMM and Portable CMM. In 2021, the fixed CMM segment acquired the largest revenue share of the coordinate measuring machine market. The main driver of the fixed CMM segment's growth is the expanding demand for confirming dimensional and geometric correctness in the automotive, manufacturing, and aerospace sectors. For tasks that call for the automated measuring of very big items, stationary CMM is appropriate. Therefore, the growth of the segment is increasing at a very rapid pace.

Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) Market Share and Industry Analysis Report 2021

Fixed CMM outlook

In the fixed CMM segment, the bridge segment registered the biggest revenue share of the market. In a three-dimensional cartesian coordinate system, a standard 3D Bridge CMM permits probe movement along the three orthogonal axes. Each axis sensor monitors the probe's position with micrometer accuracy. Higher precision of this type of CMM is the major factor propelling the growth of this segment of the market.

Portable CMM outlook

In portable segment, the articulated arm segment witnessed the highest revenue share of the market. The 3D measuring arms, commonly known as articulated arms, are movable coordinate measuring instruments that provide quality control, inspection, and verification of tiny to big workshop items. The articulated arms capture the 3D location of a probe in space and transmit the data to PC software. The increased efficiency of this equipment is bolstering the growth of the segment.

Industry Outlook

By Industry, the Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) Market is segmented into Automotive, Aerospace, Heavy Machinery, Energy & Power, Electronics, Medical, and Others. In 2021, the heavy machinery segment witnessed a promising revenue share of the coordinate measuring machine market. The use of CMMs is anticipated to increase significantly throughout the projection period because they can give producers of heavy equipment, such as excavation, earthmoving, and agricultural machinery, an on-site dimensional measurement.
