3D Scanning

The 3D scanning systems market research report delivers current market analysis and technology forecast. The market is expected to grow at a single-digit CAGR during the forecast period due to the uncertainties brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.

​​​3D Scanning System: Adoption of 3D Scanners by New End User Industries Gain Traction

3D Scanning MarketThe 3D scanning systems market took a strong hit in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and is expected to revive in 2021 onward, subject to how the global economies deal with the existing pandemic situation. 

The market revenue declined in 2020 as a majority of new projects have been impacted by the ongoing pandemic. All major economies witnessed a strong decline in 2020. The EMEA region held the maximum share, followed by North America, Asia, and Latin America. 

New end user applications such as using 3D scanners for 5G is expected to increase the installation of "smart scanners" in manufacturing facilities. These scanners are always connected and can upload data to a real-time database; this requires lighting speed internet connection, which can be attained with help of 5G technology.

The market for 3D scanning systems is dominated by Hexagon, FARO, Zeiss, Ametek, and Nikon Metrology. Overall, ARC’s analysis suggests that broad 3D scanning portfolios clearly enable suppliers to garner defensible leadership positions.

3D Scanning Market Strategic Issues

3D Scanning Data

In addition to providing a five-year market forecast, the 3D scanning systems market research report provides detailed, quantitative current market data and addresses key strategic issues as follows.

Strategic Issue for Vendors: Determine the Appropriate Scanning Technology

3D scanning technologies rely on different physical principles and can be classified in categories such as laser triangulation, structured light, photogrammetry, and contact-based scanning technology. Therefore, based on the requirement, buyers should identify the appropriate scanning technology.

Strategic Issue for Users: Software Key for 3D Scanning

A new challenge for 3D scanner manufacturers depend on software, and ARC predicts that the industry will develop advanced software solutions to deal with the processing of enormous amounts of data, almost as fast and easily as data is collected using 3D scanners.

Strategic Issue for All Market Participants: COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 outbreak has caused disruptions to global supply chains and business operations. While the pandemic significantly impacted the 2020 demand for 3D scanning systems, the market projections do take into account industry trends with ARC’s best estimates for how the COVID-19 pandemic will impact the 3D scanning systems market in different industry types.
