3D scanning has emerged as an effective tool for inspection and quality control. Industries are facing various challenges wherein cost, schedule and safety issues have arisen due to inadequate modelling and incorrect dimensional control procedure. This give rise to the need of 3D scanning, which assist in various application such as modelling, surveillance, quality check and inspection etc. The global 3D scanning market is anticipated to grow with the CAGR of the 10.5% during the period 2017-2022. The major factors that are augmenting the growth of the market are estimated to be increasing demand of 3D data for modelling and analysis and growing demand of product life cycle management solutions. Additionally, rising application of the 3D scanning and in healthcare and aerospace industry sector and reduced hardware complexities of the 3D scanners are also estimated to be one of the major factors that are driving the growth of the market.
However, High cost of high resolution 3D scanners and presence of cost effective alternative solutions in the market are estimated to hinder the growth of the market. Except these challenges, increasing adoption of 3D scanning among SMEs and availability of the consumer 3D scanner devices are developing growth opportunities for 3D scanning market during the forecast period.
3D scanning market is analyzed on the basis of the types, range and applications. On the basis of the types, the market is further segmented into laser scanner, structured light scanner, and optical scanner. 3D laser scanners is estimated to account for major share in the global 3D scanning market owing to low cost of the scanners. Furthermore, on the basis of the range, our market is segmented into short range scanners, medium range scanners and long range scanners. And on the basis of the applications, 3D scanning market is further bifurcated into healthcare, aerospace and defense, architecture and engineering, industrial manufacturing, tunnel and mining, energy and power, automotive and others.
