Executive Summary

• In 2012, the total metrology probes and scanners market earned a revenue of $Xmillion with a growth rate ofX% over 2011.
• Arriving at an average industry price for metrology probes is a challenge because prices can be as low as a $X and as high as $X. Applications within the industry are very important in pricing because they influence the type, size, materials used, and the level of engineering.
• Although the economy has been experiencing growth over the past few years, its cyclical nature means that a decline in activity is imminent. Manufacturers serving end-user industries that follow the trend of the economy should look for other areas to increase their business. For example, companies are building their portfolio in the retrofit market.
• Consolidation allows companies to increase their strengths and gives them access to segments of the market that were not available to them before. Consolidation causes significant market challenges for smaller companies. Hexagon Metrology is one of the companies that believe in acquisitions and has increased its market share in the metrology probes and scanners market considerably in the recent years.

CEO's Perspective

1. Greater importance is expected to be given to software capabilities.
2. Asia-Pacific is a high growth potential region, with India and China being the key growth engines.
3. Significant R&D investment is required to develop accurate roving systems.
4. With the evolving end-user technologies, simplicity in operation of the probing systems is required.
5. Pricing pressures continue to challenge. Vendors that are now implementing technological advancements in a bid to win the price war.
