The Global 3D Scanning Market size is expected to reach $13.3 billion by 2024, rising at a market growth of 18.4% CAGR during the forecast period. In numerous industries, such as health, manufacturing, entertainment, construction and automobiles, 3D Scanning technology has gained popularity. Reverse engineering, fast prototyping, quality controls, body scans and numerous other services are increasingly being used for 3D scanners. Moreover, the adoption of effective Scanning technology is increasing in the field of healthcare due to increased revenues, improved medical facilities and increased sensitivity to hygiene. 3D scanners make the diagnosis of human body abnormalities highly accurate. The same property is responsible for boosting its growth in applications of social security like airport body scans, CCTV monitoring and others.
3D Scanning is a process which illustrates three-dimensional attributes and the colours and texture of an object. This technology helps to save time, cost and effort during the production process so that the quality of the production is improved. 3D scanners substantially capture laser, light, or x-ray dimensions of physical objects and create point clouds that can further be used for 3D representation of the object scanned using software. 3D scanners are now developed as potent instruments in the fields of aerospace and defence, automotive, entertainment and media, construction, healthcare and many more.
Based on Product, the market is segmented into Laser Scanner, Structured Light Scanner, and Optical Scanner. Based on Range, the market is segmented into Short Range, Medium Range, and Long Range.
