Detailed examination of the World 3D Scanning Market - opportunities and forecasts, 2016 - 2021

Press Release   •   Nov 24, 2016 13:17 EST

The 3D scanning is a process in which three-dimensional attributes of an object are captured along with information such as color and texture. This technology helps in saving time, cost and efforts during the manufacturing process and improves the quality of output. Basically, 3D scanners capture the dimensions of physical objects using laser, light or x-rays and create point clouds, which are then used to produce 3D representation of the scanned object using software. Nowadays, 3D scanners have become powerful tools in several sectors such as aerospace, defense, automotive, entertainment & media, construction, and healthcare among others.3D scanners are becoming an important tool for shortening the product development to manufacturing time of a product, thus providing a leading edge to players over their competitors with improved accuracy. The ongoing technological advancements in terms of portability, scanning range, and image quality have opened up new application areas for these equipment. However, most 3D scanners are expensive, which is turning out to be a major restraint towards the adoption of these scanners.

The world 3D scanning market is segmented on the basis of scanner type, range, services, application, and geography. According to different types, scanners are categorized as optical scanners, laser scanners and structured light scanners. Laser 3D scanners have increased applications in 3D documentation and measurement due to their relatively better efficiency and portability over other scanners. Based on operating range, the scanners are classified into short range, medium range, and long range scanners. Short range scanners using structured light and laser dominated the market in 2014, and are expected to continue their dominance over the forecast period. From service perspective, the market is segmented into reverse engineering, rapid prototyping, quality inspection, and face body scanning. Reverse engineering services garnered the largest revenue in 2014 due to their widespread applications in manufacturing, automotive, aerospace and defense sectors.

Growing applications of 3D scanners in medical and healthcare as well as security areas would constitute the fastest growth of face body scanning services. The 3D scanner market is segmented into major applications such as industrial manufacturing, medical & healthcare, aerospace & defense, civil & architecture, and entertainment & media. Globally, the 3D scanning market is segmented into regions such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA (Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa). North America and Europe held a significant share in the global market in 2014 on account of heavy applications in industrial manufacturing and healthcare sectors. Key players profiled in the report include Faro Technologies, Inc., Creaform Inc., Direct Dimensions Inc., GOM mbH, Konica Minolta, Inc., 3D Digital Corporation, Autodesk Inc., 3D Systems, Inc., ShapeGrabber and Maptek Pty Ltd.
