Emphasis on Nanotechnology Increases Demand for High-precision Equipment

Electronic manufacturing companies in developed economies have been at the forefront of adopting dimensional metrology to streamline the quality process and improve manufacturing efficiency. Dimensional metrology enables end users to measure an object and helps in identifying production errors before it is supplied in the market.

As this report shows the role of dimensional metrology in the electronic manufacturing industry is in the development stage. As a result, several market participants are exploring opportunities that are currently emerging in this space. This market engineering research service primarily focuses on dimensional metrology in semiconductor and consumer electronics.

'Analysis of the Global Dimensional Metrology Market in Electronic Manufacturing' provides revenue forecasts, outlines geographic trends, highlights market drivers and restraints, and offers a market share analysis. Region breakdowns are provided for North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of World. The study period is from 2009 to 2017, with a base year of 2012.


Dimensional metrology equipment helps in the research and development of products in terms of measuring the size, structure, and ergonomics of the product. The competitive landscape in this market is dominated by major product manufacturers with very well-defined product suites for the electronic manufacturing industry.

Key end users of dimensional metrology in electronic manufacturing are the integrated circuit manufacturers, micro electro mechanical systems (MEMS) manufacturers, research and development labs, and electronic fabs (fabrications). Due to increasing globalization, the electronic manufacturers in emerging markets are beginning to acknowledge the need for incorporating high-precision metrology equipment in their manufacturing as well as quality inspection.

At present, the global dimensional metrology market in electronic manufacturing is in a development stage with immense potential for growth over the next decade. Asian countries are expected to showcase more demand for low-cost applications, whereas developed countries, such as the US and Europe, use high-end machines for research and development activities. A main factor driving demand for the dimensional metrology market in electronic manufacturing is the continuous development of advanced nanotechnology, flexible electronics, smart materials, and green manufacturing. Even though few dimensional metrology manufacturers are focusing on building products for advanced electronic manufacturing using the latest technologies, such as a multi-sensor system, there are huge opportunities in Asia-Pacific market for selling low-cost dimensional metrology equipment. This report anticipates a moderate growth in Asia-Pacific, picking up a low double-digit growth over the next few years.
