Global 3D scanner market to reach $6.1 billion by 2025
3D scanning is a non-contact, non-destructive process of analyzing and digitally capturing the shape of physical or real-world objects. Data collected about the shape and appearance of the physical object or the real world is used to create 3D digital models. A 3D scanner uses many different technologies including laser, optical, and structured to build digitized models of objects. Structured light 3D scanners and industrial computed tomography can be used to generate digital 3D models without destructive testing. The 3D model includes a point cloud of geometric samples which are then used to infer the shape of the object. Common applications of 3D scanning include industrial design, orthotics and prosthetics, motion capture, gesture recognition, reverse engineering and prototyping, robotic mapping, augmented reality and virtual reality, as well as quality control/inspection.

The previous decade has seen massive improvements in 3D scanning technology in terms of scanning speed, capture range, display resolution, storage capacity, battery life, portability, ease of use, low noise and remote control features. Modern 3D scanners are equipped with the best capabilities to scan objects in a huge range of sizes, from sub-millimeter scale to large objects such as airplanes, ship propellers, wind turbines and multi-storey buildings. Incorporating laser, optical or structured light technology, 3D scanners come in different versions such as fixed CMM based scanners, portable CMM based scanners, tripod mounted scanners and desktop scanners. Based on the range capability of the device, the 3D scanner market is segmented into short range, medium range and Long range segments. By end use, the market can be segmented into automotive, aerospace & defense, architecture & construction, healthcare, and other end uses.

Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the global 3D scanner market estimated at US$5.1 billion in 2022, is expected to reach a revised size of US$6.1 billion by 2025, registering a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.4% over the analysis period. United States represents the largest regional market for 3D scanners, accounting for an estimated 39.3% share of the global total. The market should reach US$2.4 billion at the end of the analysis period. China is expected to spearhead the growth and become the fastest growing regional market with a CAGR of 9.6% over the analysis period. The market is driven by the growing need to maintain high quality standards in manufacturing operations. The market opportunities for 3D scanning technology are emerging from the increasing digitization seen in various industries. The need for real-time analysis of large volumes of 3D data, the time and cost advantages of using cloud computing services, and the growing trend towards outsourcing 3D scanning services are also influencing the market. . The increasing adoption of automation and the emergence of “Smart Factory” and “Smart Manufacturing” concepts are driving the adoption of 3D scanning technology. The advent of Industry 4.0 has opened up opportunities for data exchange and process automation in manufacturing systems. Therefore, 3D scanning systems are increasingly being adopted by various industries including aerospace, architecture, automotive, construction, defense, electronics, energy, and healthcare. Increased automation driven by the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is also driving the demand for 3D scanning systems. The demand for 3D scanning tools in particular is expected to grow rapidly in the coming years as sensors and robotic arms continue to be widely deployed as part of industry automation. Manufacturing plants use optical microscopy-enabled robots that can analyze measurement data in real time. The growing popularity of virtual simulations, reverse engineering and quality control in the manufacturing industry is driving the demand for advanced 3D scanning equipment across several industries including aerospace, automotive, defense, energy and electronics.

Continuously increasing investment by major market players in research and development (R&D) activities aimed at diversifying product offerings and maintaining their competitive edge in the market is expected to provide significant growth potential in global scanning technology 3D. 3D scanner vendors need continuous upgrading and restructuring of their R&D to develop more advanced systems. Additionally, with in-house implementation of 3D scanning processes becoming a financial burden, alternative models including 3D scanning services are emerging as cost-effective solutions to overcome high investment costs. To implement 3D scanning in production and product development processes, companies should either set up a new facility or outsource it. Companies are increasingly outsourcing their 3D scanning needs to service providers. In the future, the demand for 3D scanning service providers would increase as more and more manufacturing companies would seek to outsource the work to these service providers to reduce measurement times and measurement uncertainty. and to improve overall process stability. Going forward, the growth momentum of the 3D scanner market is expected to continue, amid growing use of the technology in various established and emerging applications. Continued
