Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global 3D Scanner Market 2018-2022
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global 3D scanner market: AMETEK, 3D Systems, Artec 3D, FARO Technologies, HEXAGON, Nikon Metrology, and TOPCON.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is AI-based handheld 3D scanner. 3D scanners equipped with AI is a trend that can create a massive breakthrough in the global 3D scanner market. AI minimizes the user's workload by processing huge amounts of data on a single device. The implementation of AI in 3D scanners can digitize the object into a full-color 3D model using a simple and intuitive scanning process.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is increase in adoption of portable handheld scanners. Handheld portable 3D scanners of different types are available in the market, principally using laser triangulation or structured light technologies. These scanners provide professional handheld solutions offering advanced scanning quality with faster scan speed in high resolution. The wide adoption of handheld or portable 3D scanners in different industries is one of the driving factors for the growth of the global 3D scanner market.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is high cost of 3D scanners. 3D scanners are one of the most high-priced tools used in measurement/metrology, quality inspection, and reverse engineering applications. Certain factors, such as accuracy, resolution, speed, size, scanning environment, integrated solution, and complexity, influence the price of these scanners. The end user requirements to use it in the different applications define the price range of 3D scanners. Accuracy is the primary influencing factor as it relies on the technologies incorporated in the scanners; low-priced 3D scanners generally have an accuracy threshold.
