Automation in Auto Industry Calls for Metrology Solutions
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA — According to a new analysis from Frost & Sullivan, Analysis of the Dimensional Metrology Market in the Automotive Industry, rapid automation of automotive manufacturing plants is one of the key factors driving the demand for inline metrology solutions in the automotive industry.
Several powertrain and body-in-white manufacturers will replace traditional, manual measurement solutions – such as coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) – with inline metrology solutions. Moving forward, as companies strive to gain a competitive edge by robotizing their manufacturing plants, end-to-end automated inline metrology will be a key solution demanded by leading automotive manufacturers.
The analysis also finds that the dimensional metrology market earned revenue of $949.2 million in 2013 and estimates this to reach approximately $1,225.1 million in 2018.
