IMARC Group, a leading market research company, has released a report titled “3D Metrology Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028“. According to the report, The global 3D metrology market size reached US$ 9.4 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 15.7 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 8.6% during 2023-2028.

Three-dimensional (3D) metrology is a technological system that measures height, distance, length, and the points on a 3D object. It is mainly employed to reverse engineer and analyze defects in different materials and objects. It includes several hardware and software tools, including the optical digitizer and scanner (ODS), video measuring machine (VMM), coordinate measuring machine (CMM), and 3D automated optical inspection (AOI) system. These systems convert 2D architectural models into videos and images to enhance the design, production workflows, and manufacturing processes. As a result, 3D metrology is widely adopted in the automotive, architecture, aerospace, defense, medical, energy, and power sectors across the globe.
