Optical metrology is the field of science and technology that is concerned with optical measurements such as radiometry and photometry. The technology includes measurement of unseen dimensions and objects and is majorly used for applications where it is difficult to establish physical contact between the sensors and surface of the object to be measured. The industrial manufacturing has evolved over the years and become highly competitive on account of profit crunching, need for achieving economies of scale, and mounting pressure to deliver quality output in shorter lead times. This has driven the need for automation in manufacturing units, supporting demand for automated metrology equipment for inspection and reverse engineering applications. Thus, optical metrology being capable of boosting efficiency, productivity and quality levels through 100% inspection rates has become an integral element in industrial automation.
The global automated optical metrology market is technology driven. The global market for automated optical metrology is dominated by handful of players including Hexagon AB, Nikon Metrology Inc., Carl Zeiss Optotechnik GmbH, ASML Holding NV, Steinbichler Optotechnik GmbH, KLA Tencor Corporation, and Optical Metrology Services Ltd. Focus on technology development and product innovation continues to be the key strategies as manufacturers strive to develop sophisticated automated optical solutions capable of quick analysis of 2-Dimensional and 3-Dimensionaal objects with unparalleled accuracy.
Europe represents the most lucrative automated optical metrology market in the current scenario.
