3D Scanner Market by Offering (Hardware & Software, Aftermarket Service), Type (Laser, Structured Light), Range, Product (Tripod Mounted, Fixed CMM Based, Portable CMM Based, Desktop), Application, Industry, and Geography - Global Forecast to 2023

“Increasing demand for quality control and inspection to drive the growth of the 3D scanner market”
The 3D scanner market is expected to grow from USD 3.76 billion in 2017 to USD 5.90 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 7.8% between 2017 and 2023. The key factors driving the growth of the 3D scanner market include the increasing awareness about advanced medical treatment, rising need to capture large volumes of 3D data for modelling and analysis, and growing demand for quality control and inspection application. However, the availability of low-cost altenatives to 3D scanning is restraining the growth of the 3D scanner market.

“Rising inspection applications in automotive and aerospace & defense industries to drive the growth of the 3D scanner market for quality control”
Quality control & inspection applications accounted for the largest share of the 3D scanner market in 2016. Automotive and aerospace & defense are the major industries wherein 3D metrology is used for quality control & inspection applications. 3D scanners are increasingly being used in the automotive industry to ensure accuracy and precision in all the areas of a vehicle plant and to inspect the automotive components, powertrain components, and full body of vehicles.

“Automotive industry holds the largest share of the 3D scanner market”
The automotive industry accounted for the largest share of the 3D scanner market in 2016. The optical 3D scanning technology is widely used in the automotive industry for quality control and inspection applications to ensure that the components manufactured are within specified tolerance levels. Optical 3D scanners are fast and flexible and have proven to meet strict automotive production requirements. For instance, in body-in-white (BIW) assembly, 3D scanners precisely measure and monitor the locations of slots, studs, holes, and other features to ensure conformity to strict automotive tolerance.

“3D ccanner market in APAC to grow at a high rate between 2017 and 2023”
