Global Measuring Tools Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A measuring tool is a physical device that is used to accurately measure lengths, angles, volumes or other distances or quantities. The most common type of measuring tool is the ruler, which measures length in inches or centimeters. Other common measuring tools include tape measures, calipers and scales.

The importance of measuring tools lies in their ability to provide accurate measurements that can be relied on for various applications. Measuring tools are used in a wide range of industries, including construction, engineering and manufacturing. In many cases, precise measurements are critical for ensuring the accuracy of products and processes.


Tapes are used in measuring tools for securing, holding and restraining objects. They are widely used in packaging industries to hold the wrapping paper or plastic sheets around a box. Tapes also find their usage as sealing tapes which is further expected to drive market growth over the forecast period.

The global tapes, it's usage and growth factor in Measuring Tools market size was valued at USD 4,64 billion in 2015.


The levels are used to measure the surface of an object and provide a reading from 0 to 100000. It is also used in laser measuring instruments, spirit level, bubble level and many other applications. The market for levels is expected to grow at a CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) of 5% over the forecast period owing to its varied use in construction & building, automotive industry and electronics sector among others.

Application Insights:

The commercial application segment dominated the global measuring tools market, accounting for more than 60.0% share of the total revenue in 2017. The growth of this segment is attributed to an increase in construction activities and manufacturing sectors across various regions, including Asia Pacific and Middle East & Africa.

The household application segment is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to a rise in consumer spending on home improvement projects, such as renovation of kitchen or bathroom fittings with new equipment and fixtures. In addition, consumers are likely to invest more on luxury goods for their homes due to an increase in disposable income levels across various regions globally.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017 owing to the presence of a large number of construction and mining companies. The region is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period due to increasing investments in infrastructure development projects, such as new commercial buildings, roads and airports. In addition, rising demand for consumer goods is anticipated to drive product adoption across this region.

Asia Pacific is projected to be one of the fastest-growing regions during the forecast period owing with rapid industrialization and urbanization taking place across countries like China and India. Growing construction activities are also estimated to fuel regional product demand over the coming years.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for accuracy and precision in manufacturing and production processes
  • Growing popularity of quality control management systems in various industries
  • Proliferation of automated systems that require measuring tools for calibration and operation
  • Rising need for customized measurement solutions to cater to specific requirements of different industries
  • Technological advancements that result in innovative measuring tools with enhanced features
