Global Optical Metrology Market Forecast to Grow at 6.43% CAGR

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Optical Metrology Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.

The Global Optical Metrology market to grow at a CAGR of 6.43% over the period 2013-2018.

The short replacement cycle of portable electronic devices is one of the major trends expected in the market. Vendors are launching new versions of portable electronic devices (smartphones, phablets, and tablets) and consumers look to replace old devices with new-advanced models, thus triggering the demand for semiconductor integrated circuits.

According to the report, an increase in demand for smartphones and tablets among consumers is one of the major growth drivers in the market. The demand for smartphones and tablets is high in emerging countries, resulting in increased demand for the semiconductor components integrated within these devices.

Further, the report states that the cyclical nature of the semiconductor industry because of demand fluctuations from end-user markets is a prime challenge witnessed in the Global Optical Metrology market. Optical metrology equipment manufacturers often experience fluctuations in their revenues, which affects their profitability.

The report does not consider the following in calculating the market size:

  • Aftermarket sales revenue of optical metrology systems
  • Service and maintenance revenue of optical metrology systems
