Global 3D Scanning Market to Reach US$ 13.3 Billion by 2032, Supported by Rapid Technological Advancements

June 23, 2022 | Technology & Media

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “3D Scanning Market Report by Type (Hardware, Software), Range (Short Range, Medium Range, Long Range), Application (Reverse Engineering, Rapid Prototyping, Quality Control/Inspection, Face and Body Scanning, and Others), End Use Industry (Aerospace and Defense, Automotive, Healthcare, Manufacturing, Media and Entertainment, Architecture and Construction, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," the global 3D scanning market reached a value of US$ 6.7 Billion in 2023. Three-dimensional (3D) scanning refers to the process of analyzing a real-world object, person, or environment to collect data, convert the information into computer-aided design (CAD), and reproduce it as a 3D model. It is a non-destructive, non-contact technology that converts physical objects and environments using a line of laser light into precise digital models. It employs laser, light, or x-rays to record the dimensions of the subject and create point clouds, which are then used to generate a 3D model of the scanned object using the software. Apart from this, 3D scanning provides accurate measurements, enables data-driven decisions, and helps capture vast amounts of surface measurements quickly and efficiently.

Global 3D Scanning Market Trends:

Significant growth in the healthcare industry across the globe is creating a positive outlook for the market. 3D scanning is widely used by medical practitioners to measure different parameters of the body to diagnose health status and decide treatment while eliminating physical contact. In line with this, the widespread product utilization to produce medical devices, such as precise surgical blades, custom-made prosthetics, braces, wheelchairs, and implants, is favoring the market growth. Apart from this, various advancements in technology, such as the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) and the internet of things (IoT) that assist in producing ultra-sharp, clean, and detail-rich scans, are providing a thrust to the market growth. Moreover, the widespread product adoption in the education industry to enable students to experiment with disciplinary topics and serve a wide array of courses, such as architecture, engineering, history, and heritage preservation, is positively influencing the market growth. Other factors, including the increasing penetration of next-generation virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR) solutions across the construction sector, extensive research and development (R&D) activities, and the rising product demand in the manufacturing sectors to perform accurate designing and verification of products, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market value is expected to reach US$ 13.3 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.7% during 2024-2032.
