3D Scanning Market Outlook – 2030 

The global 3D scanning market size was valued at $3.72 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $16.66 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 16.3% from 2021 to 2030. A 3D scanning is an enhanced non-destructive, non-contact technology designed to digitally capture the shapes of physical objects and environment using a line of laser light. Further, 3D scanning technology saves time, money, & effort throughout the production process and also improves output quality. Essentially, 3D scanners employ laser, light, or x-rays to record the dimensions of actual items and create point clouds, which are then used to generate a 3D model of the scanned object using the software. Moreover, 3D printer scanner technology has significantly witnessed a rise across aerospace & military, automotive, healthcare, and others.

3D Scanning Market

In addition, 3D laser scanner technology captures and represents physical objects in exact size and shape in three-dimensional. Moreover, the rise in penetration of next-generation virtual reality and augmented reality solutions across construction sectors is anticipated to offer significant growth opportunities for the 3D scanning market growth. 

The 3D scanning market share is expected to witness notable growth during the forecast period, owing to surge in need for highly accurate 3D scanning. Furthermore, ongoing technological advancements in 3D scanning have driven the growth of the market. Moreover, increased need to capture large volumes of 3D data for modelling and analysis is expected to propel the 3D scanning market growth during the forecast period.

However, high price of high-resolution 3D scanners paired with dependence of market growth on non-3D businesses are some of the prime factors that restrain the 3D scanning market. On the contrary, structured light-based 3D scanning and growing 3D printing market generating demand are expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the growth of the market during the forecast period.

The outbreak of COVID-19 significantly impacted the growth of 3D scanning in 2020; however, the rise in demand for virtual reality and augmented reality solutions is expected to witness relatively high growth by the end of 2022. Nevertheless, the market was principally hit by several obstacles created amid the COVID-19 pandemic such as lack of skilled workforce availability and delay or cancelation of projects owing to partial or complete lockdown globally. In contrast, rise in penetration of 3D scanning solution across healthcare, construction, and commercial sectors drives the growth of the 3D scanning market during the forecast period.
