The global safety laser scanner market is estimated to witness a CAGR of 4.48% to reach US$343.751 million in 2024 from US$264.292 million in 2018. The safety laser scanner is the electronic use protective device that utilizes time-of-technology to calculate the position based on the time it takes the laser to bounce on an object and return back to the unit. They are widely used in many industries like automotive, pharmaceutical, etc. as these devices are versatile and can be mounted vertically or horizontally to cover the ground of the hazardous area. These scanners are usually used for area protection, AGC/AVG, and access prevention. This data is available in real-time and can alert the automated machines to prevent the hazardous movement in the industry premises. The growing number of regulations dealing with the safety of workers has led to an increase in demand for advanced safety solutions in the factories and work in general. The key factor of the safety laser scanner is that it includes the flexibility of selecting and switching between the protective field contours. The rising investment in factory automation in order to improve the operational efficiency, increasing fatalities and growing demand for the safety of the machines and employees is further driving the safety laser scanner market during the forecast period. Moreover, the adoption and installations of the AGCs and AGVs in industries like pharmaceutical, automotive, etc. are driving the growth of the safety laser scanner market. However, due to the high cost of the safety laser scanner system make it difficult to install them everywhere in the industry.
