Laser Scanner Market Trends

  • Growing implementation of 3D scanners is driving the market growth

Market CAGR for laser scanners is being driven by the growing implementation of 3D scanners. 3D scanners are largely used in automotive, architecture& construction, healthcare, and energy & power industries for quality control and inspection purpose.

In healthcare, the CT scanner can be used to produce 3D internal images of an individual's body as compared to the traditional use of the hand to measure body size and shape to know the health status. 3D body surface scanners provide the ability to measure the body size, shape, and skin-surface area precisely. Their cost-effectiveness, non-evasiveness, and ease of use have made them more popular in clinical applications and large-scale epidemiological surveys. These are majorly used in designing and manufacturing orthosis, aesthetic prostheses, and monitoring wound healing. The mobile 3D scanner is able to scan the shape of a limb, providing an accurate 3D-printed model, thus it is better and crucial for prosthetic design.

3D scanners are growing rapidly in the fast data collection methods in public safety organizations to clear accident/crime scenes faster, reduce time on scene and minimize manpower needs for collecting evidence. The 3D scanner, 360-degree cameras, and drones demand is growing for crime scene reconstruction and fire investigation. These tools complement each other to deal with the situation of traffic accidents, forest fires, building fires, etc. The enforcement agencies and fire departments are investing in 3D scanners, total robotic stations, drones, etc. Furthermore, 3D data analysis visualization tools can create virtual reality(VR) compatible deliverables, where the jury can walk through the actual crime scene to get various viewpoints.

The automotive industries have a major application of 3D scanners for early-stage designing, producing, and installing single components and completed products in the automobile. Quality control and inspection are the most crucial processes in their production, as automobile manufacturers don't make their digital data public, hence, the manufacturing of replacement parts like spoilers and bumpers depends on a 3D scanner. The dimensional analysis and inspection of machine components to verify their accuracy and get rid of costly scraps and reworks are done by the 3D scanner. The 3D scanner also helps in detecting defective parts that are received from suppliers, especially in the healthcare, aerospace, and defense industries. Thus, driving the laser scanner market revenue.
