3D Scanning Market
3D Scanning is a technique that converts a real time object in to a 3D object using different technologies. It helps in visualizing a particle in a perspicuous way and also helps in visualizing the particle more accurately. The object to be inspected is placed on a surface and a laser light is projected on to it. Cameras are employed in the process and helps in recording the shape of the laser line in a three dimensional way. The object is appeared in million points on the screen of a computer and are called as Point clouds. This process thus helps in viewing particles and their structures, functioning of the particles and many more. Laser Scanning is the most widely used technique with its applications being used in many industries. North America holds the highest share in the global 3D Scanning market with a share of 32% out of the total revenue in the global 3D scanning market followed by Asia-Pacific region with a share of 29% and Europe with 22% of the total shares. 3D scanners witnessed highest growth in the Aerospace & Defense industry followed by the medical and construction industries. The market for 3D Scanning in 2017 was $9025.6 million and is expected to reach $11,679.69 million by 2025 at an estimated CAGR of 4.39% during forecast period of 2020-2025.
3D Scanners have a range limitation where in all the scanners cannot scan objects at all the distance. Therefore scanners with various ranges like short-range scanners, medium-range scanners and long-range scanners employ different technologies like Laser triangulation, Structured light technology, Pattern fringe technology. Each of these scanners can scan an object up to certain distances like less than 1 meter, between 1 meter to 150 meters and when the distance is more than 2 meters. The technologies employed in these scanners vary depending on the range of the device. Short-range devices use Laser triangulation, structured light technology and pattern fringe triangulation technology whereas for medium-range and long-range devices phase based and pulse based techniques like Terrestrial phase-based laser scanning and Terrestrial time-of-flight laser scanning for long range are being used. 3D scanning can be done through various products like laser scanners, structured light scanners, CT scanners, Photogrammetry scanners and many more. The techniques and principles used in these scanners are different from each other that is laser scanners projects a laser light on to the object whereas in the structured light scanners, a narrow band of light is projected on the object. 3D scanners finds its applications in various industries like Aviation, pharmaceuticals industry, construction industry, chemicals industry and many more.
The average price of 3D scanners was reported to be $21,123 and is speculated that the growth of 3D scanners will decrease in the upcoming years by 9%.
The advancements in the construction industry in the building design and additive manufacturing is a driver for the 3D scanning market. This helps in thorough inspection of the building and also helps in capturing the real data which further can be transformed into consumable data such as 2D CAD drawing. The use of 3D scanners in the medical industry for analyzing the structures of skin cancer lesions is also a driver for the 3D scanning market. The other drivers include the uses of 3D scanning in crime investigations along with the virtual reality simulation and the reconstruction procedures.
The major challenges faced by the 3D scanners in the 3D scanning market is their high prices. The prices of the 3D scanners is around $21,123 which makes it difficult for the industries to buy at a very high cost. The other major challenge is the alternatives available for these devices like the Time-of-flight technology and many more.
