Key Factors Influencing 3D Scanner Market Demand

Healthcare and Entertainment Sectors Rampant Adoption Augmenting Sales of 3D Scanner?

Since the advent of 3D scanners, the global demand has been generated from industries such as industrial manufacturing and construction to check quality control, survey and inventory management.

However, as prices have decreased over the last few years, the global market for 3D scanner has begun to expand in terms of volume growth across niche industries including healthcare, entertainment & media and consumer goods.

In addition, continued interest in getting real time data through customization and high precision across key industries is anticipated to create remunerative opportunities in the global 3D scanning market.

Different Range of Prices Bolstering Demand for 3D Scanners?

The laser 3D scanner market size is anticipated to witness rapid innovations and remunerative growth opportunities on the back of increasing replacement rate of mechanical technologies. Moreover, the prices of three-dimensional laser scanners varies from several hundreds to thousands and are highly adopted by end use industries.

Currently, laser 3D scanners segment accounts for over 50% of market share across the globe and is expected to witness a healthy growth rate over the forecast period. However, several limitations in digitized objects is anticipated to pave way for other 3D scanning devices such as optical 3D scanners and structured light 3D scanners.

How is Rapid Digitization of Key Industries Driving Demand for 3D Scanners?

The global 3D scanner market has remained fragmented and geographically concentrated over the historical years. However, increasing greenfield and brownfield investments across end use industries is pushing market actors to shift their focus towards other mainstream applications.

As a result, industry leaders in the global 3D scanner market such as Hexagon and FARO have introduced new portable 3D scanners with high speed, automation, and user-friendly features to acquire greater market share in the coming years.

Furthermore, continuous emphasis on efficient 3D scanners along with greater focus on digitization and industry 4.0 has spiked consumer interest across the globe. This is anticipated to boost the growth of the overall supply chain in the global market for 3D scanners.
