3D Scanner Market

Key Market Dynamics of 3D Scanner Market

Increasing need to capture large volumes of 3D data for modeling and analysis

3D scanning data is important in the manufacturing industry as it is directly related to product quality and performance assessment efforts. 3D scanning can be used for measurement modeling that involves the visualization of a product, the quality of which can be controlled through statistical sampling. A large amount of 3D data is required to define a product adequately for precision inspection. Coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) have become a viable and cost-effective method due to advancements in data gathering sensor technology and improved measurement and inspection software.

3D scanners are, nowadays, also being used in conjunction with CMMs. 3D laser scanners, white-light scanners, and laser trackers are being widely used as dimensional metrology solutions for faster and high-precision results. These technologies have made data capturing easier and faster, resulting in highly accurate inspection. Small-sized laser trackers have large volume measurement capabilities and are increasingly being used in the automotive, aerospace, and heavy machinery industries for larger volume and high accuracy measurements.

Cost-effective alternatives available for 3D scanning

3D scanners have applications in a wide range of industries, including manufacturing, architecture & construction, and healthcare. In these industries, there are cost-effective alternatives to 3D scanning. For the architecture & construction and geospatial industries, different cost-effective alternatives such as manual measurement, electronic distance measurement (EDM), and satellite systems are available in the market. EDM is capable of highly accurate measurements, and the data collected by it is used to construct an object in 3D. This is one of the most commonly used methods in the construction industry. However, though EDM is highly accurate, it is slow and the process of creating a 3D model with the help of EDM is complex.

In the manufacturing industry, the conventional method of 3D scanning through tactile probing is still widely used, especially in APAC. In the healthcare industry, especially for dental applications, the traditional and manual method of PVS impression is used for the measurement of tooth structure as a cost-effective solution.

Though 3D scanners offer quick and highly accurate 3D scanning, the availability of cost-effective alternatives is restraining the growth of the 3D scanner market.

Fixed CMM-based 3D scanners held the largest share of the 3D scanner market in 2017

These scanners are widely used in several industries, including automotive, ship, aerospace, defense, energy & power, manufacturing, and railways. However, the market for portable CMM-based scanners is expected to grow at the highest rate between 2017 and 2023. In the healthcare industry, the demand for portable handheld intraoral 3D dental scanners is expected to rise with their growing adoption in dental clinics, particularly in developed countries worldwide.

Reverse Engineering of 3D Scanner market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecasted period

The 3D scanner market, on the basis of application, has been segmented into quality control & inspection, reverse engineering, virtual simulation, and others. Quality control & inspection applications accounted for the largest share of the market in 2016 as these applications are extensively carried out in the automotive and aerospace & defense industries. However, the market for reverse engineering applications is expected to grow at the highest rate between 2017 and 2023. Industries such as automotive, aerospace & defense, and manufacturing have started using 3D scanners to modify designs from actual objects and produce handmade cars, spare parts, and other parts.

Architecture & Construction industry held the largest market share in 2017

The market for the architecture & construction industry is expected to grow at a high rate between 2017 and 2023. The market growth can be attributed to the increasing integration of 3D scanning technology with software such as Computer Aided Design (CAD), which assists in minimizing the building design time and overall cost pertaining to building information modeling (BIM). The growth on the automotive and healthcare industries is also contributing to the rising demand for 3D scanners.

3D Scanner Market

APAC to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecasted period

The Americas and Europe hold huge potential for the market for high-end applications as they have been at the forefront in adopting latest 3D scanning technologies to improve product quality and efficiency across various industries. The Americas held the largest share of the market in 2016. However, the market in APAC is expected to grow at the highest rate between 2017 and 2023. Some of the major factors driving the growth of the market in APAC include the rising number of engineering and infrastructure projects, increasing preference for custom implants (in medical applications) to ensure better and faster recovery, and growing number of dental restoration surgeries in this region.

The availability of cost-effective alternatives to 3D scanning is limiting the growth of ths 3D scanner market.
