Dimensional metrology is part of the physical measurement that quantifies any product's physical size, form, characteristics, and distances. It plays an essential role in manufacturing and engineering processes as it ensures the quality and reliability of manufactured products.

Metrology solutions support industrial quality control (QC), verify build processes, and ensure the manufactured products meet the specifications. The development of the solutions in software created advanced growth in the metrology system. Dimensional metrology software is used to measure the physical dimensions of objects.

The metrology software can be deployed through laptops and portable equipment, enabling users to scan and measure the objects virtually anywhere. Moreover, the 3D scanner in the software assists the engineers or the user in creating a conceptual design for manufacturing and inspecting prototypes. Scanning and imaging technologies used to inspect parts play a significant role in design and engineering.

Manufacturers are adopting additive manufacturing as it creates 3-D objects from a digital model. The integration of additive manufacturing in the software creates complex parts and assemblies using traditional methods. In addition, increasing demand for coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) to ensure product quality boosts the market's growth. For instance,

  • In November 2022, Hexagon collaborated with the Research Institutes of Sweden (RISE), a national research and development (R&D) centre, to offer software initiatives to advance the use of additive manufacturing (AM) technologies by adopting software solutions from Hexagon, including AM and quality control to accelerate sustainable and innovative processes in European industry.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Dimensional Metrology Software Market:

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the dimensional metrology software market growth due to supply chain disruptions, financial challenges, and uncertainties towards the providers. Lockdowns and travel restrictions made it difficult for players to deploy and offer the software in the market.

Moreover, the shift towards remote work made it difficult for the companies to provide training and support for the software during the pandemic, which affected market growth.

With these challenges, the dimensional metrology software is expected to recover during the forecast period due to the adoption of cloud-based technology to provide low cost, easier deployment, and better scalability to make their solutions more accessible to the users. Various players developed dimensional metrology software by introducing the features including 3D scanning, photogrammetry and and computer-aided design (CAD) to overcome the challenges and continue to grow in the long term.

Moreover, rapid industrialization and increasing demand for large-scale industrial automation (Industry 4.0) by reducing waste and cost in manufacturing through improved control of production processes are expected to boost the development of the dimensional metrology software market.


By Application – The introduction of Industry 4.0 significantly transformed dimensional metrology. Dimensional metrology software is critical in various applications such as aerospace, automotive, construction, consumer product, defense, energy, and power. The adoption of the software allows real-time monitoring of the production process, which helps to identify and reduce defects by minimizing costs.

In the automotive sector, the software is an essential tool for manufacturers as it ensures the products meet the required specifications and helps to identify any potential defects. Adopting software helps reduce the risks of recalls and improve the quality and efficiency of the automotive product. It further allows manufacturers to manufacture products, improving their market effectiveness.

Moreover, the integration of advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, the Internet of Things (IoT), and automation in dimensional metrology has revolutionized the technique of measurements.

Such applications are boosting dimensional metrology software modules and equipment in multiple industries.
