GIA announces the release of a comprehensive global report on Industrial Weighing Equipment markets. Global market trends for Industrial Weighing Equipment is projected to reach US$2.3 billion by 2018, driven by technology innovations that enhance reliability and accuracy in measurement readings.

Technology Developments Drive Growth in the Global Industrial Weighing Equipment Market, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

Weighing equipment plays an important role in industries ranging from Chemicals, Food & Beverage, Manufacturing, Mining, to Transportation. The market is driven by strong demand for weighing solutions that offer ease of use, enhanced reliability, accuracy and speed. Other factors encouraging growth include replacement of old and obsolete equipment, growing trend towards the deployment of automated process equipment and increasing investments in manufacturing and infrastructure.

The 2007-2009 world economic slowdown elicited a sharp decline in demand for industrial weighing equipment as a result of reductions in capital investments in the manufacturing and industrial sector.

Declines in manufacturing and industrial output coupled with tight liquidity conditions forced many customers in various end-use industries to delay their equipment purchases, thus affecting the market’s performance.


The market however recovered in the year 2010 in sync with the resurgence in business confidence.
Technology developments, especially advancements in digital technology, are expected to benefit the industrial weighing equipment market in the coming years. Introduction of digital calibrated weighing machines and advanced weighing machines with features such as automatic loading batteries, is expected to help spur adoption and widen the end-user base in the market.

Unrivalled accuracy and precision offered by modern weighing machines are also helping drive replacements of traditional manual equipment. The large installed base of manual weighing equipment therefore bodes well for the market’s growth.

Floor scales are used as a standard of measurement in most heavy industries. Digital floor scales with enhanced functions are expected to witness strong demand as consumer preferences increasingly shift towards performance parameters like accuracy, speed, durability and reliability. Guided by cost efficiencies, adoption is expected to be high among medium and small scale industries as against the conventional large industries.
As stated by the new market research report on Industrial Weighing Equipment, Europe represents the largest regional market worldwide. Asia-Pacific is forecast to emerge as the fastest growing market with a projected CAGR of 6.2% over the analysis period. Growth in the region is led by China, India and Taiwan.
