3D Imaging Market Forecasts 2013 - 2018
The 3D imaging market report segments the 3D imaging market by 3D display technology, 3D imaging solutions, hardware, verticals and geographical regions.
Real-time imaging in applications in defense applications such as facial identification and target detection are few of the key applications 3D Imaging brings in. The market for 3D imaging solutions across verticals such as construction, automotives, mechanical, industrial and medical is expected to significantly increase in the coming years. The technology is extensively implemented surgical applications, diagnosis via MRI, CT scan, X-ray and ultrasound. 3D Imaging Market is also contributing in the areas of oral healthcare and oncology.
In the near future, 3D printing and additive manufacturing are expected to be widely adopted across verticals. This technology enables companies to produce highly customized goods, covering many potential applications across verticals such as jewelry, automotive, footwear, architecture, industrial design, engineering and construction, aerospace, medical, GIS, education and many more. The next innovation in 3D Imaging Market; 4D technology is making its way in the field of medical imaging and the CAD industry. These two applications are expected to witness a significant market growth in the near future.
Among verticals, healthcare and medical vertical is expected to account for 42.1% of the overall 3D imaging market in 2013. Earlier in the architecture industry, 3D imaging was used only for the artistic representation of the building. Now, with digital technology and advent of 3D rendering software, more accurate and realistic blueprints of an upcoming building can be created. These 3D blueprints are the exact replica of the architect’s design which can be used for technically implementing other services into it such as HVAC, Plumbing and lighting. 3D Imaging is part of a larger 3D ecosystem and is expected to grow from $3.01 billion in 2013 to $9.82 billion by 2018, at an estimated CAGR of 26.7% from 2013 to 2018
