Market Synopsis


Global Inline Metrology Market is estimated to reach USD 892.7 Million by 2026, registering a CAGR of 15.1% during the forecast period, 2020–2026.


Inline metrology refers to automated, reliable, and non-destructive measurements of parts and equipment in a production line that is in motion. The increasing automation and rising throughput of manufacturing lines have propelled the need for efficient quality control and rapid inline metrology systems for data acquisition and statistical data analysis. Inline metrology systems are generally applied in the production of photovoltaics, OLED/OPV, displays, touch panels, and glass coatings. Quality control processes fall into two distinct environments—metrology laboratories where first, article parts are digitized offline, typically using contact-based solutions, and factories, where parts are inspected in fast-moving inline processes using non-contact optical methods. Speed is one of the major differentiators between metrology and inline inspection environments. Inline inspection requires non-contact scanning of the targets. Laser triangulation and structured light 3D sensors are the most common solutions for digitization.
