Laser Tracker Market Size, Trends & Growth (2021 - 2026)

A laser tracker measures 3-D coordinates by following a laser beam that provides fast and accurate measurement of an object that can be moved anywhere in the line of sight of the base unit. The laser tracker is an instrument that accurately measures a large object by determining the optical positions of the target. Different tools are available to measure and inspect parts, products, and environments. Instead of traditional physical control devices and hand tools, laser trackers are widely used to attempt to measure objects.

The global laser trackers market was valued at USD 275.51 million in 2018 and is expected to reach USD 670.61 million in 2026, with a CAGR of 11.76% between 2019 and 2026. The laser tracker was developed in the mid-1980s to facilitate robotic metrology. After thirty years of invention, this technology is now being considered fully as a measurement tool in the manufacturing and assembling processes of several components. Additionally, laser tracking systems are leaders in the field in terms of durability, accuracy, and reliability of portable coordinate measuring machines. Currently, robot monitoring, calibration, maintenance and testing application where laser tracking technology is being used at a rapid pace. In recent years, the increasing demand for research and development activities in 3D measurement technique has dramatically increased the scope and applicability of laser trackers. Additionally, laser technology uses multiple applications including robotic metrology, large component manufacturing and assembly throughout the world.
