Global 3D Scanner Market size worth US$3.019 billion by 2027

3D scanner market

Knowledge Sourcing Intelligence announces the publication of a new analysis report on the market of the “3D Scanner Market – which is forecasted from 2020 to 2027”.

The key factors propelling the growth of the 3D scanner market are the rising adoption of reverse engineering in different industries such as automobile, defense, aerospace, and manufacturing, etc.

As per the report, the 3D scanner market is projected to grow at a moderate pace throughout the anticipated period.

3D scanners are used to digitally captures the shape of physical objects using a line of laser light. To swiftly produce point clouds with a high degree of accuracy, 3D laser scanners measure minute details. When measuring and inspecting curved surfaces and complex geometries that require enormous amounts of data for an accurate description and when doing so is impractical with the use of a touch probe, 3D laser scanning is the best option. Moreover, the technological advancements and developments in the 3D laser scanner market are further expected to augment the demand for these devices during the forecast period.

The 3D scanner market has been categorized based on type, range, technology, product, industry vertical, and geography.

By type, the 3D scanner market has been classified into Laser 3D scanners and structured light scanners. Laser 3D scanners are expected to hold a dominant share in the 3D scanner market during the forecast period owing to the ease of use and availability of laser scanners in the market.

Based on range, the 3D scanner market is segmented into short-range, medium-range, and long-range. Further, based on technology, the 3D scanner market is divided into laser triangulation, laser pulse-based, and laser phase shift-based.

By product, the market is segmented into CMM-based, tripod-mounted, and others.

By industry vertical, the 3D scanner market is divided into automotive, healthcare, aerospace and defense, oil and gas, construction, energy and power, mining, and others. According to the analysts, the oil and gas segment is one of the significant end-users for 3D scanners due to their capacity to assist in the creation of a 3D ground survey for any upstream or downstream site.  

Geographically, the market is divided into North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and Asia-pacific. During the forecast period, the North American region is anticipated to hold a considerable share of the 3D scanner market due to the significant presence of leading companies in the area that provide cutting-edge 3D scanner goods as well as the expanding use of VDI/VDE rules that specify 3D scanner characteristics.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the 3D scanner market due to the variety of complexities in the market. The manufacturing and automotive industries faced a huge impact owing to stringent government measures and partial or complete lockdowns imposed by the government. Henceforth, the negative impact of the pandemic on the end-user industries affected the demand for 3D scanners.

As a part of the report, the major players operating in the 3D scanner market, that have been covered are REIGL Laser Measurement Systems GmbH, Carl Zeiss Optotechnik, Topcon Corporation, Trimble Inc., Atlas Corpo, Hexagon AB, FARO Technologies, Nikon Metrology NV, and CREAFORM.
