The global 3D scanner market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.84% over the forecast period to reach a total market size of US$3.019 billion by 2027, increasing from US$1.219 billion in 2020. The rising demand for customized clothing is spurring the demand for 3D scanners to obtain accurate physical measurements.

The growing adoption of reverse engineering services in various industry verticals such as automobiles, defence, aerospace, and manufacturing is significantly driving the demand for 3D scanners worldwide. Increasing cases of terrorist attacks have further augmented the demand for 3D scanners for scanning faces and bodies for security surveillance at airports and other public places. Factors such as technological advancement and the development of handheld 3D scanners are projected to expand the global 3D scanner market in the forthcoming years. Furthermore, the increasing demand for whole-body scanners to get deep insights into medical problems will also propel the growth of the 3D scanner market in the healthcare sector. Simultaneously, a significant reduction in the prices of 3D scanners has also been attributed to its growth.

A laser scanner provides good growth opportunities.

The 3D scanner market is segmented by type into optical scanners, laser scanners, and structured light scanners. Laser Scanners held a significant share in 2019 and are estimated to remain in their position by the end of the forecast period. This growth is attributed to the ease of use and availability of laser scanners in the market coupled with the emerging trend toward 3D design and presentation. However, optical scanners are projected to witness the fastest market growth owing to increasing applications of scanning technologies such as bar codes, Magnetic Ink Character Recognition (MICR), and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags in the packaging industry, banking and finance industry, and education sector, among other industry verticals. The Structured Light Scanner (SLS) market will also experience considerable growth due to rising demand for photographic and bathymetric maps of the seafloor for environmental study purposes as well as for archaeological sites.   

The ability to aid in the development of a 3D terrain survey is driving its adoption in the oil & gas industry.

By industry vertical, the global 3D scanner market has been segmented as healthcare, military and defence, media and entertainment, manufacturing, construction, and others. The oil and gas industry is one of the significant end-users for these products on account of their ability to aid in the development of a 3D terrain survey for any upstream or downstream site. Moreover, the growing focus by the government of the United States to improve its status as an oil exporter is expected to further drive the demand for 3D scanners during the forecast period. Simultaneously, the focus of the automotive manufacturers to increase the development cycle is further anticipated to augment the growth of the market. Media and entertainment accounted for the largest share of the global 3D scanner market in 2017. Increasing demand for more visual effects shots in commercials and movies is forcing the entertainment industry to utilize 3D technology in the most exciting and experimental ways, thereby driving the high demand for 3D scanners.

North America is estimated to hold a significant share of the market.

By geography, the global 3D scanner market has been segmented into the following North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and Asia Pacific (APAC) regions. North America accounts for a significant share of the global 3D scanner market in 2019 and is projected to remain in its position throughout the forecast period. This growth is attributed to the strong presence of key players in the region offering state-of-the-art 3D scanner products coupled with the rising adoption of VDI/VDE regulations that define 3D scanner specifications.

The European 3D Scanner market will witness considerable growth during the forecast period owing to the rising manufacturing and automotive industries in the region. However, the Asia Pacific region is anticipated to witness the fastest regional market growth during the forecast period due to rising demand for 3D scanners and their applications in the automotive, architecture, construction, and healthcare sectors.

Key Developments

  • February 2021: As per the 26 February 2021 press release by SMARTTECH3D, the company collaborated with The Food Technology Department at the University of Life Science for SMARTTECH3D to develop a new method of food quality evaluation. Through some variables registered during this process, metric analysis was possible and fast comparison was possible. They introduced 3D scanners to get quality results in the possibility to obtain more specific and accurate data much faster. The measuring error of the meat volume was less than 2% with this method.
  • October 2020: Microsoft announced that ZEISS Group and Microsoft Corp. have entered into a multi-year strategic partnership to help ZEISS transition into a cloud-based digital service provider. A 3D scanner can improve patient care through data-driven healthcare and increase manufacturing quality and efficiency.

Impact of COVID-19 on the 3D Scanner Market

The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the advancement of 3D scanning in 2020. However, the pandemic resulted in a variety of difficulties, including a lack of competent personnel and project delays or cancellations because of a partial or complete lockdown globally. The manufacturing and automotive industries had been contributing significantly to the growth of the 3D scanner market, but the pandemic had negatively affected these industries. As a result, these industries saw a huge decline in 3D scanner demand. The electronic and semiconductor industry also suffered during the pandemic which directly affected the growth of the market. Over the course of the projected period, the 3D scanning market would expand due to the growing implementation of 3D scanning solutions in the commercial, construction, and healthcare sectors. It was projected that by the end of 2022, demand for virtual reality and augmented reality solutions would skyrocket.
