Analyst Review

The demand for high-resolution visualization has increased across various industries including defense, medical, and entertainment. A three-dimensional display, known as stereo display, provides images with depth perception for better visualization effect and enhanced customer viewing experience. Similarly, 3D displays are widely used in the defense sector for training and stimulating while the medical industry uses it in radiology, gynecology, cardiology, oncology, orthopedics, dentistry, and others to improve medical operations, patient care, and support discovery in medical research. Furthermore, it is used in consumer electronics such as smartphones, tablets, television, computer, and gaming devices for customer experience and high quality of visualization. In addition, the 3D imaging systems can be used for guiding and controlling robotic systems for production and inspection.

3D imaging market has gaining significant traction owing to emergence of 4D imaging technology, which offers virtual reality or immersive multimedia that creates artificial sensory experiences of sound, smell, vision, and touch. Likewise, Biotechnology based companies such as NanoLive have developed the first 3D-cell-exploring-microscope, which allows users to study living cells.

Geographically, the fastest adoption of 3D imaging technology was in North America followed by Europe. Moreover, Asia-Pacific has indicated high potential for growth owing to the rapid demand in India and China and their robust R&D in healthcare industry.
