Rapid industrialization and focus on rapid growth has resulted in significant dominance of profilometers in 2017. Contact profilometer is preferred due to the accuracy of the data that is received. However, non-contact profilometer is expected to witness the fastest growth due to the advancement in technology such as adoption of visualization tools in order to receive accurate results of the study.

Optical methods are expected to witness rapid growth during the forecast period due to the adoption of several advanced techniques which are related to the rising computing capabilities over the years. Optical methods help to derive accurate results even on complex shapes. Additionally, optical methods conducted by the non-contact profilometer are portable and also provides correct measurements without touching the surface. However, contact and pseudo contact profilometers dominated the market in 2017.

Under the dimension segment, 3D optical profilometers are preferred and are used in industries such as semiconductors and electronics due to the fact that they provide accurate results. It can measure any surface with the help of axial chromatist. With non-contact profilometers, there is no need for any sample preparation. Additionally, 3D non-contact profilometers can measure any surface such as opaque, transparent, diffusive, rough, and polished. These features of 3D non-contact profilometers are anticipated to accelerate the growth of the global profilometer market during the forecast period.

Due to the large-scale demand for 3D non-contact profilometers in the semiconductor and electronics industry, demand for profilometers in these sectors is experiencing significance dominance over the years. Additionally, growth in semiconductor and electronic sectors has also resulted in the rise in usage of such instruments in these industries over the years.
