Factors such as increasing adoption of cloud computing services and surging demand for industry 4.0 are expected to provide growth opportunities to players in the 3D scanner market.

The 3D scanner market for laser scanner is expected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2021 to 2026

Laser scanners collect a series of profiles from laser lines as objects move past the field of view of these scanners. 3D smart sensors with built-in software can then automatically combine multiple profiles into a complete 3D map of object surfaces. The market for laser 3D scanners is expected to grow at a significant rate because of the scanners’ ease of availability and usage. Laser 3D scanners are being widely used in industries such as automotive, architecture & construction, healthcare, and energy & power.

3D scanner market for quality control and inspection is expected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2021 to 2026

Under quality control and inspection, 3D scanner is used for alignment, CAD-based inspection, dimensional analysis, and machine calibration, among others. Manufacturers use 3D scanner for accurate scanning and inspection analysis to derive corrective action without slowing down the production. Automotive and aerospace & defense are the major industries where 3D scanner is used for quality control and inspection. 3D scanner is mainly used in the automotive industry for automotive component inspection, powertrain components, and full-body inspection, as well as for checking the accuracy and precision of all areas in a vehicle plant.

North America to account for second largest size of 3D scanner market during forecast period

North America is expected to account for second largest size of 3D scanner market from 2021 to 2026. The US held the largest share of the 3D scanner market in North America in 2020. The presence of several automobile manufacturers and research institutes and large semiconductor companies in this region has increased the demand for 3D scanning equipment, which is fueling the growth of the North American 3D scanner market. The sales of 3D scanning equipment are expected to rise in key industrial segments including automotive, aerospace & defense, medical, and heavy machinery.
