3D Scanning Market Overview:
The 3D Scanning Market was valued at $5.4 billion in 2021 & is projected to reach $15.9 billion by 2029. It is expected to grow at a 14.7% CAGR between 2021 and 2029.
3D scanning is a process that is used to capture the three-dimensional attributes of objects, as well as information such as texture and color. Companies and industries use this technology in a range of manufacturing processes in order to save time, effort, and cost.
In order to accurately capture the dimensions of objects, laser, light, and/or x-rays in the design of 3D scanners are used to create point clouds. These point clouds are then used to produce a 3D representation of the scanned object with the help of software.
Currently, 3D scanners are widely used as powerful tools in industries such as aerospace and defense, entertainment & media, automotive, healthcare, construction, and numerous other sectors.
3D scanners have made it possible to shorten product development and manufacturing time, and this provides a competitive edge to players in various markets and industries.
Technological advancements happening in terms of portability, image quality, and scanning range are opening up new application areas for 3D scanning equipment. Some factors that are currently driving the growth of the global 3D scanning market are the use of high definition content recording for movies and films, growth of the global 3D printing market.
These are among some of the key factors expected to continue to drive growth of the market, as well as open up new potential for applications during the forecast period. However, most 3D scanners currently available in the market are relatively expensive, and this is among some of the primary restraints to adopting these products.
3D Scanning Market Dynamics:
Industries such as manufacturing, healthcare, construction, entertainment, and automobile are using 3D scanning technology for applications such as rapid prototyping, quality inspection, reverse engineering, and body scans.
The number of potential applications of 3D scanners is expected to further increase over the forecast period. Advancements in medical facilities and infrastructure increased income levels, and rising awareness regarding safety and hygiene has been resulting in the increasing adoption of modern and more efficient scanning technologies in healthcare applications.
Among some of the major restraints in global 3D scanning, the market is the major price differences between conventional 2D alternatives and 3D technology solutions. Customers are price-sensitive as 3D scanning solutions are more expensive than 2D alternatives.
Hence, only companies with the budget and the need for sophisticated end deliverables prefer and opt for high-cost 3D scanner products. Most of the players in the market are medium-sized, and they require efficient 3D scanners.
Owing to high prices, medium-sized companies opt for 2D alternatives owing to budget constraints related to 3D scanners.
The market for 3D printing has been registering major growth in the recent past, and 3D scanners are being increasingly being adopted for prototype building models, printing of a variety of products in various industries, and modeling of objects, parts, and components, etc.
In order to get exact details of real objects, these need to be scanned and all references captured and fed into a computer.
The reconstruction is then completed using a 3D printing machine. As the application areas continue to expand, demand for and usage of 3D scanning and printing is expected to increase substantially, thus driving the growth of the global 3D scanning market to a significant extent over the forecast period.
Global 3D Scanning Market Segment Analysis:
Among the scanner type segments, the optical scanners account for the highest revenue share currently and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period.
Among the range segments, the medium-range scanner accounts for the highest revenue share currently, which is expected to continue during the forecast period.
