Global Portable CMM Growth Opportunities

Increasing Preference for New Technology Expands the Need for Inline Measurement and Inspection


This research analyzes the global trends in the portable CMM market. It has steadily grown, with demand predominantly coming from the automotive, machine shop, and aerospace industries. The disruption caused by the onset of COVID-19 resulted in contracted demand across these industries, and the economic uncertainty resulted in customers being cautious about capital expenditures and focusing on maintaining liquidity. Newer variants of the COVID-19 virus coupled with longer lead times and material shortages will continue to hamper industries during the short term.

The portable CMM market will see positive growth in 2021, driven mainly by the automotive and machine shop industries. The market for portable CMM is likely to return to pre-COVID levels in 2022 to 2023 as plant utilization levels slowly return to normalcy. With prosthetics and implants being low volume-high mix applications, demand for flexible inspection in this space is high. The market is segmented by product type, vertical market, and regional market. The study covers market share analysis of top competitors by product segments and discusses the prominent distribution channels used.
