Zion Market Research has published a new report titled “Surface Roughness Measurement Market: by Component (Probes, Frame Grabbers, Lighting Equipment, Cameras, Software, and Others), by Surface Type (2D and 3D), by Technique (Contact Technique and Noncontact Technique), By Vertical (Automotive, Aerospace & Defense, Optics & Metal Bearing, Medical & Aerospace & Defense, Semiconductor, Energy & Power, and Other Verticals): Global Industry Perspective, Comprehensive Analysis, and Forecast, 2018 – 2026.” According to the report, the surface roughness measurement market accounted for USD 739 Million in 2018 and is expected to reach USD 1019.2 Billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of around 4.1% between 2019 and 2026.
Surface measurement is synonymous with surface metrology – determines surface topography, which is essential for confirming a surface’s suitability for its function. Surface measurement conceptually includes surface shape, surface finish, surface profile roughness (Ra), or in surface area roughness (Sa), surface texture, asperity and structural characterization.

For instance, engine parts may be exposed to lubricants to prevent potential wear, and these surfaces require precise engineering at a microscopic level to ensure that the surface roughness holds enough of the lubricants between the parts under compression, while it is smooth enough not to make metal to metal contact. For manufacturing and design purposes, measurement is critical to ensure that the finished material meets the design specification.
Defects may occur either in material surfaces during processing or after use, and defect analysis is often essential for providing the information to improve the effectiveness, efficiency and durability of surfaces. For example, a product that requires long life in adverse conditions is prosthetic joints, such as hip joints. Being able to measure the surface material for wear, scratches, and the shape of a prosthetic joint after it has been removed for replacement can be beneficial for future hip replacement procedures. Optical surface measurement techniques have been used to measure these and other medical-quality surfaces such as stents, dental implants and artificial bone.
Manufacturers need to control processes to produce a consistent, reliable product. Where precision surface engineering is required, the surface measurement may be a key part of maintaining control of the process, by checking output to see that the process is not outside of specification. Options for surface roughness measurement are essentially delimited by the precision required in the result. For example, surface roughness could be assessed by eye and touch, by comparing a test sample to a standard sample, but this is not a measurement: it is subjective. Touch sensitivity and visual resolution limit the effectiveness of these assessments to features that are a few microns high and wide, at the extreme limit.
The automotive industry has often been at the forefront of the use and development of metrology techniques for both research and quality control. With the development of improved measurement technology, in terms of both accuracy and range of measurement, there is scope for further utilizing surface metrology and associated characterization techniques to improve and predict the performance of functional surfaces in a variety of applications. The development of surface metrology techniques includes the ability to measure areal surfaces rather than the traditional profile characterization techniques such as the widely used Ra (average roughness).
Some key players in operating in the surface roughness measurement market are Tokyo Seimitsu Co., Ltd., JENOPTIK AG, KEYENCE Corporation, Mitutoyo Corporation, Carl Zeiss, Starrett, EXTECH, Hexagon AB, Taylor Hobson, and Mahr.
