"Increasing demand for quality control and inspection to drive the growth of the 3D scanner market"

The 3D scanner market is expected to grow from USD 3.76 billion in 2017 to USD 5.90 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 7.8% between 2017 and 2023. The key factors driving the growth of the 3D scanner market include the increasing awareness about advanced medical treatment, rising need to capture large volumes of 3D data for modelling and analysis, and growing demand for quality control and inspection application. However, the availability of low-cost alternatives to 3D scanning is restraining the growth of the 3D scanner market.

"Rising inspection applications in automotive and aerospace & defense industries to drive the growth of the 3D scanner market for quality control"

Quality control & inspection applications accounted for the largest share of the 3D scanner market in 2016. Automotive and aerospace & defense are the major industries wherein 3D metrology is used for quality control & inspection applications. 3D scanners are increasingly being used in the automotive industry to ensure accuracy and precision in all the areas of a vehicle plant and to inspect the automotive components, powertrain components, and full body of vehicles.

"Automotive industry holds the largest share of the 3D scanner market"

The automotive industry accounted for the largest share of the 3D scanner market in 2016. The optical 3D scanning technology is widely used in the automotive industry for quality control and inspection applications to ensure that the components manufactured are within specified tolerance levels. Optical 3D scanners are fast and flexible and have proven to meet strict automotive production requirements. For instance, in body-in-white (BIW) assembly, 3D scanners precisely measure and monitor the locations of slots, studs, holes, and other features to ensure conformity to strict automotive tolerance.

According to the new market research report on the 3D scanner market, the market is expected to grow from USD 3.76 Billion in 2017 to USD 5.90 Billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 7.8% during the forecast period. The market growth can be attributed to the increasing need to capture large volumes of 3D data for modelling and analysis, rising focus on quality control, and growing awareness about advanced medical treatments.

This report segments the 3D scanner market on the basis of offering, type, range, product, application, industry, and geography. On the basis of offering, the market has been divided into hardware & software and aftermarket services. The larger market size of the hardware and software offerings can be attributed to the rising adoption of new software upgrades for 3D scanners. This is also expected to drive the growth of the market for aftermarket services.

On the basis of type, the market has been segmented into laser 3D scanners and structured light 3D scanners. The market for laser 3D scanners is expected to grow at a significant rate between 2017 and 2023 as these scanners are easy to use and easily available. Laser 3D scanners are being widely used in industries such as automotive, architecture & construction, healthcare, and energy & power.

On the basis of range, the market has been divided into short, medium, and long ranges. Short-range 3D scanners are widely used in industries such as automotive, healthcare, and aerospace & defense. These 3D scanners are mainly used for automated and inline 3D scanning solutions; this is expected to boost the demand for short-range 3D scanners in the automotive & transportation industry.

The 3D scanner market, on the basis of product, has been segmented into tripod mounted, fixed CMM based, portable CMM based, and desktop 3D scanners. Fixed CMM-based 3D scanners held the largest share of the 3D scanner market in 2016. 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.

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 3D scanner 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.

The 3D scanner 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

The Americas and Europe hold huge potential for the 3D scanner 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 3D scanner 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 3D scanner 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.
