In order to understand the market movement; drivers, restraints and opportunities are explained in the report. The market for 3D cameras is primarily driven by its increasing adoption in applications such as media & entertainment, manufacturing, construction and others. However, higher prices of 3D cameras as compared to 2D alternatives and lack of consumer awareness restricts the market growth. Additionally, rising home automation and virtual reality products would contribute to higher adoption of 3D camera products.

Key players in the market, include Nikon, Go Pro, Sony Corp., Canon, Panasonic Corp., LG Electronics Inc., Samsung Electronics Corp., Fujifilm Corp., Kodak and Faro Technologies.

Segment Overview

Different technologies such as time-of-flight, stereo visioning and structured light imaging are used for developing 3D cameras. Time-of-flight cameras are highly sophisticated in terms of quality they render; stereo visioning cameras are cost effective solutions, commonly used in moviemaking applications. Structured light cameras are less portable; however, they capture details of an object from multiple angles simultaneously.

The time-of-flight technology is useful in the 3D camera solutions for various purposes such as automotive, healthcare, industrial and others. In automobile applications, the technology is useful for autonomous driving with increased safety through real-time alerts of driving conditions. In industrial applications, time-of-flight sensors act as effective human machine interfaces to ensure safety in automated processes. These sensors are useful in recognizing and calibrating human gestures.

The 3D cameras in the market are classified in accordance to their focus technology. There are two types of 3D camera namely, target camera and target-free camera. A Target camera features a mechanism, which renders focus at one particular object, whereas target-free cameras (often known as free focused cameras) do not focus on any particular object. The target cameras are capable of focusing on specific elements/targets and capturing it in high resolutions. These features makes such cameras useful in object tracking and surveillance. This type of camera is useful in asset monitoring of industrial applications. North America exhibits a dynamic hub for the growth and developments in target cameras, constituting a notable share of the target camera market revenue in 2014. Target-free camera was the largest revenue-generating segment in year 2014 and would continue to contribute the highest market revenue through 2021.

From the applications perspective, the World 3D camera market covers professional cameras, smartphones, tablets, computers, and others. Other devices consist of iPads, notebook PCs, and mobile robots. Among all applications, professional cameras was the largest revenue-generating segment in 2014. The tablet application is expected to grow at the highest CAGR among all applications owing to ongoing innovations by OEMs.
