A research study titled, “3D Scanning Market by product Type - Global Industry Analysis and Forecast to 2022” published by Crystal Market Research, states that the 3D Scanners Market Is Projected To Be Around $3.66 Billion By 2022.

In 2012, the global 3D scanning market was evaluated over USD 1.70 billion and is anticipated to reach around USD 3.66 billion by 2022 while maintaining a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.12% during the forecasted period. A 3D scanner is an equipment that studies a real-world environment or objects to accumulate data of its shape as well as perhaps its appearance. The accumulated data can then be employed to create digital 3D or three-dimensional models. 3D scanners measure the tangible objects with the help of x-ray, laser or light and form polygon meshes or dense point clouds. 3D scanners are also referred as white light scanners, 3D digitizers, industrial CT, LIDAR, laser scanners, and others. There are several diverse 3D scanning methods, based on different imaging principles. As a few technologies are ideal for short-range scanning, remaining technologies are best for mid- or long-range scanning. The 3D scanning technology has application everywhere in a production phase and assists to save money, material and time. 3D scanning ensues in superior quality and enhanced fitting parts that need less production cost. By using 3D scanning, the expenditure of a typical production design cycle can be abbreviated by 75%. 3D scanning presents numerous advantages like rapid capturing of all measurements of particular tangible object, less time-consuming design work, as well as the guarantee of parts production with specific measurements which is actuating the 3D scanners demand.

The global 3D scanners market is anticipated to demonstrate lucrative growth while maintaining a significant compound annual growth rate over the projected period of 2012 to 2022. Development of handy 3D scanners and technological advancement is predicted to fuel the growth of global 3D scanner industry. Reverse engineering services are experiencing high adoption owing to extensive industrial applications in industries like manufacturing, automobile, aerospace, and defense. In addition, body or face scanners are anticipated to achieve grip over the forecast period with extending applications in security surveillance and in medical and healthcare industry. Though, elevated initial cost of 3D scanners is restraining the product’s industrial adoption and is likely to restrain the growth of the global 3D scanner market over the coming years.
