3D scanning is a non-destructive and non-contact technology that captures the details of the natural world with properties such as texture and color. 3D scanning technology is majorly adopted across commercial applications owing to the flexibility of customizing the technology to cater the professional needs. Growing demand for 3D scanning technology across different industry verticals owing to several advantages such as quickly collecting all the physical measurements, examining more harmful and not easily accessible areas, conserving designing time, and better safety.

A surge in the technological innovations in the 3D scanning technology to make the 3D scanners more compact, smaller, and strong and the growing application across different industries will further compel the market share. However, the huge cost of better resolution 3D scanners and the existence of economic substitutes will hamper the 3D scanning market size.

By type, the Structured Light 3D Scanners segment is predicted to expand at a faster CAGR over the forecast period because of the growing adoption of these scanners for 3D scanning in different application areas. In addition, as per the 3D scanning market research, various advantages of using structured light 3D scanners that include the ability to fast capture the quality 3D scans at high accuracy, production of accurate & dense data, enhanced safety for viewing, and high detail levels are further surging the demand for these scanners in the market.

By end-user industry, the automotive segment is expected to witness a promising CAGR over the forecast period. This is because of the growing implementation of 3D scanning in the automotive segment guided by the growing demand for inspection and control applications. 3D scanning offers several advantages in the automotive industry, such as measuring the hard-to-reach areas, like tunnels, performing precise measurements, and digitalizing the production line.

By region, Asia-Pacific is forecast to expand at a faster compound annual growth rate during the forecast period because of the rising adoption of 3D scanning methods across automotive and healthcare. In addition, as per the 3D scanning market analysis, the growing number of projects for the enhancement of infrastructure & construction projects and increasing surgeries for dental restoration are other factors driving the 3D scanning market.

Leading players operating in the market include HEXAGON, Faro Technologies, Inc., Topcon Corporation, Nikon Metrology NV, CREAFORM, Perceptron, Inc., Trimble Inc., 3D Digital Corporation, Carl Zeiss Optotechnik GmbH, and 3D Systems, Inc.

Key Developments:

In 2019, CREAFORM expanded its reseller channels for CUBE-R automated inspection solutions by adding two more European distributors – Measurement Solutions Ltd in UK and EMS in Belgium. The CUBE-R solution incorporates the MetraSCAN 3D-R, a strong robot-mounted optical 3-D scanner to be used in the factory automation systems and permits the producers to predict the assembly issues at the time of production and improve the product quality.

In 2018, HEXAGON innovated a 360º cell, a turnkey solution for the fully automated 3D measurement in a shop floor or quality room. This solution helps to improve the effectiveness of the optical measurement technology of the company.
