A force gauge is a device that measures force exerted by an object. These are pivotal in industries like manufacturing, research, and development due to their precise measurement capabilities, ensuring product quality and safety. Two primary types dominate the market: digital and analog force gauges. The differentiation primarily hinges on their display modes and functionalities. As industries grow more tech-centric, the demand for such instruments has surged. Force gauge market is expected to continue at a steady CAGR of 4.0% during the forecast period from 2024 to 2032, driven by increasing demand in quality control and testing sectors.

Force Gauge Market

Increasing Demand in Quality Control and Testing Sectors

Modern-day manufacturing demands precision. To ensure the products meet set standards, quality control and testing have become integral to production lines. Force gauges, due to their accuracy, find immense application in these processes. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) have regulations that necessitate product testing, bolstering the market demand. In 2023, several industries reported augmented usage of force gauges to adhere to these international norms.

Technological Advancements in Force Gauge Designs

With technological evolution, force gauges have seen significant improvements. Modern digital force gauges come with features like data storage, USB connectivity, and integration capabilities with computer systems. These advancements streamline data collection and analysis, making the process efficient. The automotive and aerospace industries, known for their rigorous testing protocols, have particularly benefited from these features. Last year, a surge in sales in these sectors underscored the vital role technology played in shaping the force gauge market.

Growth in Aerospace and Automotive Sectors

The aerospace and automotive sectors have seen remarkable growth. With cars and planes becoming more advanced, their component testing and quality assurance requirements have expanded. Force gauges, providing reliable measurements, have found substantial application in these sectors. 2023 marked the year when major automotive companies expanded their production capacities, indirectly driving up the demand for these precision instruments.

High Cost of Advanced Digital Force Gauges

Although digital force gauges offer numerous benefits, their elevated costs can deter potential buyers, especially small-scale enterprises. In comparison to their analog counterparts, digital variants are pricier, often reflecting their multifunctional capabilities. Many businesses in 2023 expressed concerns over their budgets not aligning with the costs of the latest digital force gauge models.

Digital Force Gauge Dominates the Market by Type

The digital force gauge segment has displayed dominance in terms of revenue and CAGR. The rise of Industry 4.0, emphasizing automation and data exchange, played a pivotal role in this. Digital gauges, with their advanced features, catered precisely to these needs. On the revenue front, in 2023, digital force gauges accounted for a significant market share, overshadowing analog force gauges. However, when focusing on CAGR, digital variants are expected to continue their upward trajectory from 2024 to 2032, owing to their technological advantages and broader industrial acceptance.

2501N to 5000N Range Dominates the Market by Capacity

In terms of capacity, the segment ranging from 2501N to 5000N exhibited the highest revenue in 2023. This range finds applications in various industries due to its versatility. However, gauges with a capacity of ≤1000N are anticipated to register the highest CAGR from 2024 to 2032, as smaller and precise measurements are becoming more crucial with miniaturization trends in product design and manufacturing.

Asia Pacific Remains as a Global Leader

From a geographic standpoint, the Asia-Pacific region led in terms of revenue in 2023, thanks to the expansive manufacturing base in countries like China and India. This region, being a global hub for industries like electronics, automotive, and aerospace, relies heavily on force gauges for quality control. On the CAGR front, the Middle East and Africa are expected to witness substantial growth from 2024 to 2032 due to rising industrialization and infrastructural development activities.

Competitive Trends

Competition in the force gauge market is intense, with major players striving for market dominance through innovations and strategic partnerships. In 2023, companies like Alluris, AMETEK. Inc., Teledyne Flir LLC, Imada Co., Ltd., Mark-10 Corporation, Nidec Drive Technology Corporation, Omega Engineering, Inc., PCE Deutschland GmbH, Hans Schmidt & Co GmbH, Dillion, Aikoh Engineering Co., Ltd., and Morehouse Instrument Company, Inc. led in terms of revenue, given their expansive product portfolios and global presence. The overarching strategy observed was a focus on research and development, aiming to launch advanced, user-friendly models. Collaborations and mergers were also rampant, allowing firms to expand their territorial reach and clientele base. For the forecast period of 2024 to 2032, these players are expected to intensify their R&D endeavors, aiming to cater to evolving industrial demands.
