3D motion capture systems are used for any movement analysis. These systems are utilized to gather precise and reliable data for an extensive array of application starting from gait analysis to sports therapy, robotics, and graphics & animation. There are basically four types of motion capture, that is, passive, active, markerless, and inertial. The passive optical systems are used extensively nowadys because of their presence of a number of features such as high accuracy, absence of cables for data collection, large performance area, and high frequency of capture. The markerless optical systems have been gaining traction due to the absence of markers for motion capture and still have the same quality of data output. The non-optical systems, on the other hand, are capable of providing real-time data output for immediate feedback and also do not suffer from the problem of sensor disorientation or overlapping.

This research report categorizes the 3D motion capture system market on the basis of systems, hardware, software, services, applications, and geographic region. The market has been segmented based on systems into optical and non-optical. On the basis of hardware, the market has been segmented into sensors, cameras, communication devices, and accessories, while on the basis of software; the market has been segmented into packaged and plug-in. On the basis of services, the 3D motion capture system market has been segmented into training & development, installation, consulting, and others. The report segments the marked based on applications into entertainment, life science, and others wherein the entertainment sector comprises films and games, while the life science sector consists of sports and medical. It has been segmented based on geography into North America, Europe, APAC, and RoW.

The 3D motion capture system market is expected to reach USD 142.5 million by 2020. The entertainment and life science sectors are the three major applications of 3D motion capture system. In 2014, the entertainment sector accounted for the largest share of nearly 46% of the 3D motion capture system market.

The report also details the key high growth markets, thereby underlining the growth trend in the 3D motion capture system market.
