Three Dimension (3D) technologies have now attained commercialization in most of the products and applications such as Smartphone, TV, Animation, Gaming, Medical imaging etc. After the success of ‘Avatar’, several producers are releasing their movies in 2D as well as 3D version. Thus, 3D cinemas have turned out to be the additional revenue generator for cinema producers.

Products like 3D Smartphone, 3D printer, 3D gaming consoles, etc. are the latest 3D technology-based products that have just been launched and are yet to capture the market, but as 3D market is progressing rapidly, these products are expected to perform better in future. This report provides information on 3D glasses by company and by different features. It describes a comparison matrix of 3D glasses, which includes different company models along with their features.

After commercialization of 3D technology, 4D is making its way in the field of medical imaging and BIM (Building information modeling). 4D cinemas have also become popular, although they are just a marketing term used by 4D cinema owners and 4D cinema producers. In 4D BIM, architects or engineers are able to forecast their projects with the combination of 4D and CAD tools. In 4D medical imaging, the forecasted image helps to display the affected organ or development of fetus over a certain period of time. It helps the doctor in curing the diseases of the patients.

In global 3D technology market, North America is the leader. It is a huge base for 3D gaming and animation designers; which shares the largest percentage in the overall 3D product and applications market. It is followed by Europe and APAC. APAC is expected to have the fastest growing rate of 21.96% in the next five years.

This report deals with all the driving factors, restraints, and opportunities for the 3D technology market, which is helpful in identifying trends and key success factors for the industry. The report also profiles companies active in the field of 3D, technology with their competitive landscape and strategies. It highlights the winning strategies and burning issues pertaining to the 3D technology industry.

The global 3D technology, products and applications market is expected to reach $227.27 billion in 2016 at an estimated CAGR of 15.81% from 2011 to 2016. North America will remain at the top followed by Europe and APAC. Gaming and animation will be leading application areas in 3D industry.

3D technology has evolved significantly over the recent past, and redefined entertainment industry by offering users high-definition and enhanced experience, where viewers are immersed into the cinema and can enjoy real time environment. 3D is no longer confined to the theaters, but has spread into every possible entertainment forms; ranging from outdoor signage displays to pocket size mobile devices.

The trend that started with slimmer televisions using LED backlighting drifted to 3D TV in 2010, thereby creating hype for 3D-enabled products. The collective innovation initiatives taken by leading companies like Sony, LG, Samsung, Panasonic, etc. further fueled 3D technology market.

Today 3D technology market is prominently increasing in the field of entertainment industry, following the successful movies like Avatar, which was the biggest hit. After this successful venture, more producers are coming up with 3D content in the form of motion films and animation films. Consumers’ interests have also been increasing in 3D gaming and companies are launching 3D gaming consoles that enhance customer experience and joy of playing. 3D medical imaging is also picking pace.

There are two types of display technologies under which the entire 3D market can be segregated; namely stereoscopic technology and Autostereoscopic display technology. At present, most of the applications and products are covered under stereoscopic display technology. Autostereoscopic display is new to the market.

here are some hindrances for this market, which is affecting 3D technology market such as lack of technology awareness amongst common people, and high pricing.
By geography, North America is the market leader, followed by Europe, and APAC. North America is the largest supply base for most of the 3D applications and products, such as animation gaming, medical imaging, etc.

The various companies currently involved in 3D technology market are LG, Samsung, HTC, NVIDIA, Object, Nintendo, Sony, DreamWorks (U.S.), etc.
