Global rangefinder market is expected to reach USD 4,918.14 Million by 2025, at a CAGR of 12.56% from 2018 to 2025. The key contributing factor for the market growth is cumulative demand for high-precision equipment in industrial processes, improved accuracy in sports activities with the use of rangefinders, and the use of rangefinders in defense systems.

Market Overview:

A rangefinder is a device used to measures distance from the observer to a target with the help of a camera or gun. Rangefinder a handheld device used in several situations where the range detection is the vital part, for example, golf, archery as well as hunting applications need to measure the distance between themselves and the target. For instance, Saab launched Vidar, a laser rangefinder product. This product combines compact size with powerful performance and uses a laser beam to measure the distance to the target.
