4 Key Takeaways from Fact.MR’s Report on Total Station Market for Forecast Period 2017 - 2026
by Team Fact.MR
The demand for total stations is increasing due to the rise in modernized construction plan, use of 3D modeling in construction technology and the increasing demand for precise measurement in rail application. Manufacturers are providing both manual as well as robotic total stations, however, the demand for robotic total station is rising as it provides accuracy, speed and can be operated by the single user. Manufacturers are focusing on developing total station for specific application for various industries. Sensor technology is also being incorporated in total station for accuracy of measurements. Meanwhile, manufacturers are also focusing on incorporating new technology and unique features to provide measurement accuracy for three vital components that total station depends on, namely, measurement path, setup point, and measurement target.
Lack of awareness and training regarding the use of advanced technology is restricting the growth of total station. However, some of the manufacturers have started providing on-site training to the end-users using their product.
According to the latest report by Fact.MR, the global total station market is expected to witness moderate growth, registering 4.1% CAGR during the forecast period 2017-2026. Owing to the introduction of advanced features in total station, the demand for total station is increasing in electrical and mechanical construction, mining, meteorology, etc. However, high cost and environmental conditions are hampering the growth of the global total station market. Moreover, total station market is cost sensitive, hence, making it difficult for manufacturers to provide it at competitive prices. Following are the insights on how the global total station market will perform in the coming years.
4 Forecast Highlights on Global Total Station Market
