The global 3D Laser Scanner market is expected to be valued at US$ 1,587.2 Million in 2022. Owing to the growing application in several end industries such as automotive, construction & architecture, and, aerospace & defense, the demand for 3D laser scanners are estimated to burgeon over the forecast period. The overall demand for 3D laser scanners is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.8% between 2022 and 2032, totaling around US$ 3,378.4 Million by 2032.
A 3D laser scanner is a device that uses a line of laser light to digitally capture the shape of physical objects. 3D laser scanning is a non-contact process for analyzing real-world objects and collecting data about their shape and appearance. The information gathered is then used to generate 3D models.
Furthermore, 3D scanning technology saves time, money, and effort during the manufacturing process while also improving output quality. Essentially, 3D scanners use laser, light, or x-rays to record the dimensions of actual items and create point clouds, which are then used by software to generate a 3D model of the scanned object. Furthermore, 3D printer scanner technology has seen significant growth in the aerospace and military, automotive, healthcare, and other industries.
North America and Europe are anticipated to witness immense growth owing to the growing automotive and healthcare industry and increasing focus on technological advancements and innovation. In terms of product type, the Tripod-mounted 3D scanner will gain the highest traction over the forecast period.
The global demand for 3D laser scanners is projected to increase at a CAGR of 7.8% during the forecast period between 2022 and 2032, reaching a total of US$ 3378.4 Million in 2032, according to a report from Future Market Insights (FMI). From 2017 to 2021, sales witnessed significant growth, registering a CAGR of 6%.
As per the analysis, 3D laser scanners are becoming more and more technologically advanced and producing more accurate scans. As technology is popularized, it is becoming more cost-effective to manufacture and distribute as well. The advancement in handheld 3D digitizers and robust 3D printers in recent years have created an evolutionary boom within the 3D scanning marketplace.
