Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Alltrade Tools, Amberg, DotProduct, FARO, FLIR Systems, GeoDigital, GeoSLAM, Hilti, Makita, mantis vision, Maptek, Renishaw, NCTech, RIDGID, Spatial Integrated Systems, Stabila, Surphaser, Teledyne Optech, Topcon, and Zoller + Fröhlich.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Improving visibility of lasers. The human eyes are extremely sensitive to “visible light” that belongs to a small electromagnetic region. The visibility of lasers is ordinarily determined by their wavelength and power output. The wavelength of visible light is within a range of 400 nm-700 nm with color ranging from violet to red. Green lasers with a visibility range up to 100 ft offer improved visibility in long-range interior and exterior applications when related to conventional red lasers. When a construction job requires a laser level, the more visibility a product provides, the easier to do the job as it reduces the setup time. Hence, several vendors are introducing green laser levels to improve visibility and range of laser levels.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Rising popularity of laser scanning. Laser scanning, also referred as high-definition surveying (HDS), is a method of reality capture or high-accuracy mapping that employs laser beams to quickly capture the complete detail of the whole building in a construction project like a camera taking a 360-degree photo but with an accurate position for every pixel. This detailed 3D representation of the building in construction projects is usually called a point cloud. Originally applied for maintaining and constructing industrial plant facilities, laser scanning has since been utilized for several other uses, incorporating building construction and BIM.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is High capital investment. One of the major challenges in the market is the high cost of implementation of 3D devices and applications. Despite having several advantages such as the ability to ensure easy and quick 3D images of a physical object, 3D scanning faces several challenges in its adoption due to its implementation cost. The price of 3D includes the cost of the scanner, licensing software, system design and customization, implementation, training and maintenance services, and hardware upgradations. If end-users deploy a cheaper 3D scanner, it will take much longer to produce accurate results. Hence, using a high-quality 3D scanner is a necessity for end-users. This affects the growth of the market, especially among price-conscious companies in APAC.
