Report Digest


Weigh in Motion Market – Introduction 

Weigh in motion (WIM) devices are specifically designed equipment to record the truck axle & gross vehicle weights as they drive over a measuring site or a sensor. The existing weigh in motion systems are witnessing an increasing traction over the conventional static weigh stations, as they don’t require the vehicle to stop, which make them a more efficient option. Numerous benefits of weigh in motion systems, such as reduced overload vehicles, easy access to busy parts of the city, reduced road deterioration and increased road safety, have fueled their adoption in recent years. These factors pushed the weigh in motion market to value roughly US$ 572 Million in 2018.
