Global Industrial Scanners Market 2017-2021
About Industrial Scanners
An industrial scanner is a device, which is used to capture key information from the working environment. The information is then assimilated and provided in a ready-to-read format to the user. Industrial scanners use devices that capture data or inspect objects in the environment with lasers or light. Data captured by these scanners are called as clouds. These clouds are then used for the analysis or to correct errors.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global industrial scanners market to grow at a CAGR of 6.84% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global industrial scanners market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of industrial scanners.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Industrial Scanners Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global industrial scanners market: Honeywell International, ZIH, Datalogic, and Olympus.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: DENSO, EUROTECH, GE Measurement & Control, JIREH Industries, Microscan Systems, and TouchStar Technologies.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is growing demand for rugged devices. With the increasing global organized business environment, companies are focusing on the use of rugged devices. The major factors for this transition are high rates of failure and challenges faced by industries while using non-rugged devices. Because of high competition, organizations have no tolerance for errors or delay in data handling. Therefore the rugged industrial scanners market is expected to grow during the forecast period.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is rising demand of scanners from industrial sector. Initially, barcode scanners were only used in retail outlets and warehouses to capture data related to product sales and storage. However, these scanners are currently witnessing a growing demand in the industrial sector for numerous applications in warehouses, retail stores, and transportations due to their ability to quickly capture and collect accurate data. Handheld industrial barcode scanners are portable. They can be either wired to a laptop or be wirelessly connected to the computing device via Bluetooth. Because of the portability factor, they are preferred in the industrial sector. Instead of carrying all the bulky objects to the barcode reader, the barcode reader can be carried to the objects for reading. The high flexibility and ease of use allow scanners to easily read barcodes without moving the product.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is long time required to scan large objects. Contact scanners are preferably used to scan large objects. In this case, the contact is made by the scanner with the object for the scanning purpose, which is a very time-consuming process. In addition, the contact with the sensor while scanning might damage the sensor. This fact is very significant when scanning delicate or valuable objects such as historical artifacts. Contact scanners are relatively slower than other scanning methods. Physically moving the scanning device over the large object consumes a long time. Thus, the ultimate purpose of having a scanner for improving the efficiency gets affected. Moreover, the accuracy also gets affected in such measurements as scanners must be moved continuously.
