Global 3D Terrestrial Laser Scanning Market 2015-2019

About 3D terrestrial laser scanning

Scanners are measuring instruments based on lasers. Terrestrial laser scanning is a new and efficient method of digitization data related to large objects for surveys. It enables capturing of complex geometric data from buildings, objects, and machines. Laser scanners are used for topographical surveys to provide deliverables such as spatial cloud data, DEM, DTM, contour maps, raw data, and technical analysis. It is a ground-based technique for measuring the position and dimensions of different objects in 3D.

3D scanning is the process of capturing digital information regarding the shape of objects and converting them into digital models using lasers or structured light. It offers advantages such as reduction in cost and wastage, increased efficiency, faster completion schedules, improved information flow, improved decision making, and enhanced quality control. The hardware collects digital information and creates a point cloud, while software converts the point cloud into 3D models with a high degree of accuracy.

Technavio's analysts forecast the global 3D terrestrial laser scanning market to grow at a CAGR of 16.48% over the period 2014-2019.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global 3D Terrestrial Laser Scanning Market 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global 3D Terrestrial Laser Scanning Market: Leica Geosystems, Teledyne Optech, Trimble Navigation, and Zollar + Frohlich.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Faro, GeoDigital, Maptek, Measurement Devices, RIEGL Laser, and Spatial Integrated Systems.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One of the major transformational trends is increased adoption and usage of non-traditional sensors, which include unmanned aerial vehicles and mobile device sensors.”

According to the report, a key driver in this market is the high return on investment achieved 3D TLS technology which helps save a lot of revenue in terms of equipment cost, mobilization cost, and processing time in scanning systems.

Further, the report states that despite technological advancements in scanning, 3D scanning applications are highly sensitive to environmental factors such as scanned surface color, ambient light, glossiness, screen resolution, and geometry, and as such pose a threat to this market.
