In terms of verticals, media and entertainment vertical has the largest market share in the 3D animation market
3D Animation is the process of generating animated images by using computer graphics. 3D Animation is used to render special effects in games and films in order to make the audience feel a real live image and pictures. The basics of 3D Animation are Keyframe animation and Motion Capture. Keyframe Animation or key-framing is the oldest style of animation. The 3D software package has now changed but the techniques involved in Keyframe animation are still applied. The other method is the motion capture that contains sensors which records the actual motion moving around. Motion capture uses new technology and it is costly as compared to keyframe animation.
In terms of verticals, media and entertainment vertical has the largest market share in the 3D animation market for the year 2014 and is expected to remain the largest by the year 2019. Academia and education vertical is expected to have the highest Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) compared to other expanding verticals such as media and entertainment, architecture, building and construction, defense and intelligence, healthcare and life sciences, manufacturing and design, and others.
The flourishing 3D entertainment is driving the global 3D market, as it is being used in cinemas and gaming at a large scale. The increase of 3D animation market is noticed also by observing increase in the number of 3D display screens in movie halls and also the revenue generation of 3D animated movies at the box office has climbed considerably. Also, there are specific 3D TV channels available worldwide which creates lots of opportunities for 3D animation market. The television sets offered by most of the companies are now deploying 3D graphics providing visualization effects and sounds.
The upcoming opportunity in the 3D animation market is the 4D technology. The 4D technology uses the time and space concept providing four dimensional real time images of the animation object. With the help of 4D technology, the limitations prevailing in the 3D animation market can be removed and one can experience a better view of images, pictures and visuals.
