Global Safety Laser Scanners Market 2017-2021
About Safety Laser Scanners
A safety laser scanner is an optoelectronic device that emits an infrared laser beam, which, gets reflected when it strikes an object and is captured by the device. The time taken for the completion of the cycle of emitting and re-capturing of the laser beam defines the distance between the scanner and the object. This data is available in real-time and can be fed to an automated machine to prevent hazardous movements in industrial premises. Safety laser scanners offer area protection and access monitoring for mobile and stationary applications. The key features of a safety laser scanner include the flexibility of selecting and switching between protective field contours.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global safety laser scanners market to grow at a CAGR of 3.16% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global safety laser scanners market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers the demand for safety laser scanners.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Safety Laser Scanners Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global safety laser scanners market: Leuze electronic, OMRON, Panasonic Electric Works, Pepperl+Fuchs, Rockwell Automation, and SICK.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Banner Engineering, Hans TURCK, Hokuyo-USA, IDEC, and KEYENCE.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is compactness of safety laser scanners. Industrial machinery manufacturers are seeking to incorporate smaller safety solutions that can easily be integrated with the equipment. Safety laser scanners are now widely used to provide protection to people, machinery, and facilities. Industrial safety scanners are extensively used with automated operations to reduce costs, gain efficiencies, and improve operational safety. The scanners now use non-contact monitoring in mobile and stationary applications.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is increase in the number of industrial accidents. Industrial operations involve activities that may carry risks to the personal safety of the workers engaged in them. These activities can lead to injuries or even fatalities. From operating machinery to handling volatile goods, the threat to personal safety is present everywhere. Industrial mishaps not only affect the worker but also result in downtime and the loss of productivity.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is high cost hampering large-scale deployment. One of the major challenges faced by the safety laser scanners market is that the products offered are very expensive. Safety laser scanners are used in large numbers by end-user industries as they most of them have a defined range of coverage; therefore, just a few will not be sufficient to ensure safety throughout the industrial premises. However, the exorbitant cost of safety laser scanner systems makes it difficult for end-users to deploy them in large-scale industrial facilities. Thus, the high cost will lead to fewer installations, which will make it difficult for the installed systems to ensure an acceptable level of workplace safety.
