Handheld Segment to Account for ~4 Out of 10 3D Scanner Volume Sales, Revenue Share to Jump ~900 BPS

For last 10 years, the traditional, stationary 3D scanners have held the majority of the market share in the global 3D scanner market owing to quality assurance, labor shortage, and limited technologies.

Further, the overall sales of stationary scanners in digital industry has seen a maturity phase, leading to immense potential for the handheld segment in the global 3D scanner market.

Further, increasing popularity of low cost 3D scanners is likely to support the increasing demand of handheld 3D scanners during the forecast period.

As a result, the handheld 3D scanners segment is expected to register a growth of over 20% throughout the forecast period from 2019 to 2027.

Asia Pacific to Remain Hotbed of Opportunities

Legacy regions such as North America and Europe have maintained their dominance in the adoption of digital technologies and held ~3/5th of market share in 2019.

Presence of prominent players has proliferated the widespread penetration of 3D scanners across these two regions.

Among other regions, Asia pacific including South Asia & Oceania as well as East Asia is estimated to witness rapid advances made in 3D scanners as new end-use cases emerge in the emerging economies of Asia Pacific.

Collectively, both the regions are anticipated to grow at a CAGR of over 18% during the long term forecast period in terms of volume sales.
