Capitalize on the Booming Weigh-in-Motion Systems Market: Expected to Reach US$ 2.55 Billion by 2032

During the projected period, the demand for weigh-in-motion systems is predicted to grow at a moderate CAGR of 10.3%. The global weigh-in-motion systems market is expected to generate US$1.04 billion in sales in 2022 and US$ 2.55 billion by 2032.

Over the forecast period, the weigh-in-motion systems market outlook is expected to be driven by the rapid increase in the number of vehicles and the resulting increased demand for faster, more accurate, autonomous, and efficient weighing systems. In the future, more and more people are forecasted to use weighing products thanks to developments in the industry that allow for faster detection of vehicles that are overloaded and more affordable traffic monitoring and analysis.

Weigh-in-motion systems are expected to become increasingly popular as new forms of traffic congestion arise as public and commercial sectors work together to improve transportation systems’ environmental impact reduction, safety, and productivity. The state of Idaho paid $2.2 million to International Road Dynamics Inc. in September 2021 so that they could supply and implement an electronic pre-clearance and weigh-in-motion systems. This change is likely to decrease emissions of greenhouse gases and traffic at weigh stations while increasing screening efficiency for commercial vehicles.

Weigh-in-motion systems also have other advantages, such as thorough reporting, increased productivity, and full integration, which together make it much simpler to weigh enormous, heavy haul trucks and trains. This, along with widespread implementation of these systems in industries including transportation, forestry, waste management, demolition and excavation, agriculture, port operations, mining, and building, is expected to drive the weigh-in-motion systems market outlook.

Weigh-in-motion systems market expansion is predicted to be stymied by factors including hefty initial investments and stringent installation requirements for nonintrusive weigh-in-motion sensors. As a result of technological advancements in industry, the transit of commercial heavy vehicles is growing at a staggering rate. The installation of a weigh-in-motion system is essential for traffic management and the oversight of regulatory compliance.

Manufacturers are investing heavily in R&D to increase their standing in the worldwide W weigh-in-motion systems market as technology improves. They are working to increase the performance of the weigh-in-motion system by using strain gauge sensors, fibre optic weigh-in-motion sensors, and fibre Bragg grating sensors. As a result, demand for weigh-in-motion systems increases over the world.

Key Takeaways

  • Players such as Q-Free, International Road Dynamics, Kapsch Trafficcom, Kistler, TE Connectivity, SWARCO, FLIR Systems, and Siemens dominate the weigh-in-motion systems
  • The weigh-in-motion systems market is anticipated to be led by Europe.
  • By 2029, the Highway Toll sector is anticipated to account for the greatest share of the weigh-in-motion systems
  • The rising number of heavy-duty trucks and technological advancements in weighing systems bode well for the North American weigh in weigh-in-motion systems market share throughout the forecast period.
