Time and Cost-Efficient 3D Scanning Technology Gains Market Traction

ARC Advisory Group’s new market size and forecast report for 3D scanning shows that the technology offers a multitude of advantages over conventional survey and measurement practices. 3D scanning helps in the creation of accurate as-built models for building information modeling (BIM). 3D scans are essential for checking proposed designs against existing site conditions and comparing construction progress with original design plans. The adoption of this technology by EPCs has resulted in an improvement to the overall design/build/operate/maintain lifecycle for plants and buildings. This technology positively impacts project lifecycle and workflow in terms of time, cost, and construction efficiency.

"Increased deployment of 5G is expected to increase installation of "smart scanners" in manufacturing facilities. These scanners are always connected and can upload data to a real-time database. This requires very fast internet connectivity, which can be attained with the help of 5G technology. Worker safety is the primary concern for construction sites, and 3D laser scanning can improve on this aspect of surveying. With the help of portable 3D laser scanners, surveyors can record accurate measurement of the structure from a distance of up to several hundred meters," according to Kiran Chavan, Analyst and key author of ARC's 3D Scanning Systems Market Research Report.
