The Global Laser Distance Measurement Devices Market Size Was Valued At Over USD 3.5 Billion In 2022 And USD 5.17 Billion By 2030 With CAGR Of Over 5% Between 2022-2030.
Laser distance measurement devices are used to figure out how far apart two things are. The laser beams they send out hit things and bounce back to the device. The device then figures out how far away it is based on how long it takes for the beam to come back. This type of equipment is commonly used in construction and surveying. This kind of tool can also be used to figure out how tall something is. The growth of the market is due to more people wanting to use portable and fixed laser ranging devices in the military, in building and construction, in the oil and gas industry, in the metal and mining industry, and in other places. The study on the Global Laser Distance Measurement Devices Market shows how the market is expected to grow in terms of revenue over the next few years.
Laser measuring tools can be expensive, especially if they are precise and have a lot of features. The upfront cost of buying these instruments can be a big problem, especially for small businesses and organizations with limited funds. Laser measuring tools may not be used as much as they could be because they are expensive, especially in markets where prices are important.
- Growing Demand in Construction and Real Estate
Laser devices that measure distance, like laser rangefinders and laser distance meters, are used a lot in the construction and real estate industries. These devices are used for accurate and efficient measurements of distances, areas, and volumes, thereby improving productivity and reducing human error.
- Advancements in Technology
Laser distance measuring tools have been getting better and better over time. Manufacturers are adding features like Bluetooth connectivity, touchscreens, built-in cameras, and augmented reality (AR) capabilities, which make them easier to use and more versatile. These improvements to technology make the devices more accurate, faster, and better at what they do.
- High Accuracy, Precision, and Portability of Laser Trackers
Laser trackers are very easy to carry around. They have an internal battery that gives them extreme accuracy over very long distances and allows them to work in the most difficult conditions while keeping the highest level of accuracy. Modern lasers can be carried around and are very accurate when used within a reasonable range for measuring. Also, systems today are powered by Wi-Fi connectivity, which makes it even easier for sensors to talk to each other and share data.
- Growing Consumption of Electronic Devices
With the help of the digital India program, more people in India are using electronic devices. Before they can be sold, all electronic devices and equipment must pass an authentication test. As more electrical and electronic devices are made and used, more test and measurement equipment will be needed in factories that make them. The use of testing and measuring equipment improves the quality of the product and the brand value of the company that uses it. This is because the equipment helps find any problems that could happen during the manufacturing process. In this way, it is expected that India's market for test and measurement equipment will grow quickly over the next few years.
- Growing Demand for Safe and Quality Checked Home Appliances
Since people are using more and more data, it's likely that sales of consumer electronics will go up soon. This will likely lead to a bigger market share for test and measurement equipment. Improvements in home technology are helping the growth of the industrial sector. Smart home appliances are always getting better and newer so they can fit the simple lives of tech-savvy customers. Also, companies have been making cutting-edge parts and complex automation systems for smart homes. Due to the high costs of making technological improvements, which could cause overall product prices to go up, safety and testing are now required for home appliances. Thus, it influence the India test and measurement equipment market.
- Availability of Substitutes, such as Laser Radars, to Carry Out Inspection and Calibration Tasks
Companies have started to focus on growing their presence in large-volume metrology applications by releasing new versions and updated laser radar products. For example, API released the DYNAMIC 9D LADAR in May 2022. This is an innovative laser detection and ranging system that can measure both the size and shape of a surface.
- Addressing Alignment Errors in Laser Trackers
Laser trackers come in a variety of shapes and sizes to meet the needs of a wide range of industries and applications, such as quality inspection, tooling, and alignment. But laser trackers can sometimes be out of alignment because of manufacturing tolerances and the way they were designed.
- Competition from Alternative Technologies
Ultrasonic distance measurement, GPS-based measurement, and traditional measuring tools like tape measures are all alternatives to laser distance measurement. Customers may choose these alternatives instead of laser distance measurement devices, depending on the application and needs. This could slow the growth of the market for laser distance measurement devices.
- Increasing Adoption of Cloud Computing
Companies in the laser tracker business have started to offer cloud-based ways to analyze and process the data that laser trackers collect. For example, Hexagon's Manufacturing Intelligence division offers HxGN SFx | Asset Management, a cloud-ready software solution that helps manufacturers achieve operational excellence by giving them access to real-time machine status and usage reporting.
- Rising 5G Technology for Gadgets
As the size of electronics continues to shrink, test and measurement tools are getting smaller and easier to use. The time it takes to measure is cut down, and the results are more accurate. The newest T&M equipment is being used to test new technologies like 5G, IoT, M2M, and others. On the interior, modern T&M equipment are more intelligent, making the measuring procedure simple and rapid. Many T&M instruments are made less expensive because they use both old and new technology. In many T&M devices, both old and new technologies can be used at the same time. These instruments also have interfaces for USB, LAN, and Bluetooth, which make exchanging and transferring data easier and faster.
- Adoption of IoT and ML in Testing Devices
Adopting cutting-edge digital technology from the present, like semiconductor device manufacturing volume, machine learning (ML), or even the Internet of Things (IoT). More progress in this area is likely to be one of the most important things that will affect the main trends and opportunities in the test and measurement equipment market in the coming year. India is progressing as a result of the effective access to real-time work monitoring provided by cutting-edge solutions like Artificial Intelligence (AI). After realizing how important it is to move to a digital economy, the Indian government has started a number of projects. The government has put a lot of money into the manufacturing sector and the digital economy. Programs like "Make in India" are helping a number of industrial firms in the area grow, which encourages the use of cutting-edge technologies. Because of this, the test and measurement equipment market in India is likely to grow.
- In June 2022 - Focuslight Technologies Inc. released the LX02. It is a KW VCSEL line beam transmitter module for LiDAR. The laser transmitter uses innovative 5J high-power VCSEL chips and Focuslight's patented beam shaping optics to produce 1kW peak power with 0.15° horizontal divergence and a typical vertical FOV of 23° with high uniformity of 90%. It also has a laser driver that is powered by a GaN FET fast switch and makes very short pulses (with a width of 5ns).
- In February 2022 - The XT20 and XT22 laser transmitters were made by EASY-LASER and came out. They make handling easier, so measurements can be done faster and there are fewer places where things can go wrong. They make it easier to install machines in a safe way. Both transmitters can measure how flat or straight something is. The XT22 can point the laser beam at an angle of 90 degrees to the laser plane, which lets it do almost any geometric measuring job. Because of this, the app doesn't measure how flat bases are. Fiber laser technology gives the XT22 a higher technical standard for straightness and lets it take measurements up to 40 m away. The XT20 is rated IP55 and can take measurements from up to 20 meters away.
