3D scanners have been witnessing huge adoption for commercial use cases. In addition, the flexibility of 3D scanning technology to be customized as per professional requirements in several industries has boosted its adoption across prominent end-use industries. Case in point, in the healthcare sector, 3D scanners are leveraged to model body organs in three dimensions, which is utilized to create prosthetics.

They can also be used to facilitate wound management and form body implants. Against this backdrop, the global 3D scanners market would grow at an impressive CAGR in excess of 14% over the forecast period of 2022-2030.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has hit the profit margins of electronics manufacturers, globally. As such, players in the 3D scanners market are confronting raw material shortages with weeks of delays, on an average. Further, manufacturing and automotive industries are key revenue creators for the 3D scanners market, and the pandemic has severely affected these industries too.

Consequently, the 3D scanners market would witness a notable drop in demand from these industries. A majority of manufacturers are forecasting a decline in sales over the first two quarters of 2020, and over 60% players are projecting business operations to recover by October 2022.

Key Takeaways of 3D Scanners Market Study

·       3D scanners/hardware will continue to hold leading market share over the following decade.

·       Among all the services, 3D design and modeling services are expected to expand at the highest CAGR over the coming years.

·       Market players continue to capitalize on portable/handheld 3D scanners, while robot-mount 3D scanners would offer potential value-capture opportunities.

·       Short range (less than 1m) 3D scanners would capture a prominent revenue share; long range (more than 300.1m) 3D scanners to witness adoption upsurge in the coming years.

·       Healthcare and manufacturing industries would remain the key end users of 3D scanners; the latter to show the most worthwhile prospects in the near term.

·       North America continues to engage market players; East Asia to offer potential growth avenues.

Increasing Usage of 3D Laser Scanners in Collision Detection to Drive Market

3D scanners are used in collision avoidance as well as in vehicle navigation applications. These scanners come with features such as high accuracy of recorded measurements, making 3D scanners immensely useful for use cases, including reconstruction and collision detection.

Furthermore, handheld 3D scanners are utilized to record the interiors of damaged vehicles, allowing internal damages to be recorded, measured, and analysed. As such, 3D scanners tick all the boxes of safety, speed, and flexibility, to offer complete collision detection as well as reduce the impact of traffic flow.
