Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/14/2018 -- According to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research titled "Profilometer Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2018 – 2026," the global profilometer market is expected to reach US$ 528.47 Mn by 2026, expanding at a CAGR of 4.4% from 2018 to 2026. Europe held the highest share in the profilometer market in 2017.
Surface profilometers are devices that help to measure the surface profile in order to quantify the roughness. Factors such as higher usage of 3D non-contact profilometers and demand from electronic, semiconductor, and automotive fields is set to fuel the global profilometer equipment market, consequently resulting in the rising demand for profilometers. Regulations and policies increase the product standard and quality. High investment cost of machinery for setting up production units is expected to hamper the global profilometer market. However, manufacturers of profilometers are more focused on product development and innovating new advance profilometer technology which are expected to create huge opportunity for the profilometer market during the forecast period.
