Global Levelling Instruments Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Levelling Instruments are devices that help in the levelling of an object or surface. They are used to ensure that a surface is horizontal or vertical. This is important for tasks such as construction, engineering and landscaping, where it is necessary to have level surfaces.

Cushings Level:

Cushings level is a liquid level indicator used in construction equipment, such as auger bores and concrete saws. It's function is to indicate the surface of wet or dry ground that the cutting head of the implement is aimed at. Cushings are usually made up of plastic or rubber and filled with fluid. As the implement cuts into soil, vibrations cause liquid to move within the cushioning material creating an impression on a dial that indicates levels.


The Y-level is a significant parameter used in the manufacturing of level instruments such as lasers, bubble levels and spirit levels. It helps to maintain uniformity in product quality by maintaining constant temperature during the process of manufacturing. The y-axis is an important axis as it directly affects the output level which can be seen on any type of level instrument.

Manufacturers use this concept to control different aspects related to production such as accuracy, repeatability.

Application Insights:

Building and construction was the largest application segment in 2016, accounting for over 50% of the overall revenue share. The growth can be attributed to an increase in infrastructure projects such as new roads, railway lines and buildings across various countries. In addition, a rise in residential & commercial building activities is expected to boost product demand during the forecast period.

The other applications segment includes ground maintenance & repair works along with slope stabilization and excavation services. Leveling instruments are used for accurate measurement of angles on uneven surfaces so that they can be constructed at right angles or plumbed correctly for use by plumbing systems such as water pipes or drains during construction work on a building site or premises. These products are also used while laying paving slabs and preparing foundations for new buildings where concrete surfaces need to be level including driveways, parking lots etcetera.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region has been witnessing rapid growth in construction activities owing to increasing GDP of countries such as China, India, Indonesia, Vietnam and Thailand. This is likely to drive the demand for levelling instruments during construction projects over the next eight years.

The growing use of 3D printing technology across several industries including automotive & transportation; architecture & building; dental; engineering & manufacturing is projected to positively impact product demand over the forecast period. Furthermore, rising awareness regarding level measurement tools among professionals working on various types of projects such as buildings and bridges will augment market growth during future years.

In North America, U S was one of largest revenue-generating economies in 2017 with a total revenue share estimated at more than 25%.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for levelling instruments in construction and infrastructure industry
  • Rising awareness about the benefits of levelling instruments in precision engineering and manufacturing sector
  • Growing popularity of digital levelling technology over traditional methods
  • Proliferation of online shopping portals offering a wide range of levelling instruments at competitive prices
  • Entry of new players into the market providing innovative products and services
