3D Motion Capture Market Outlook-2026
Motion capture is the process of capturing the movement of objects or people. It has various applications in entertainment, sports, military, medical applications, and for validation of computer vision and robotics. In filmmaking and video game development, it refers to recording actions of human actors, and using that information to animate digital character models in 2D or 3D computer animation. When it includes face and fingers or captures subtle expressions, it is known as performance capture. In many fields, motion capture is sometimes called motion tracking. In motion capture sessions, movements of one or more actors are sampled many times per second.
Increase in demand for high quality 3D animations is the key factor driving the growth of the 3D motion capture market. Reduction in the implementation cost of the 3D motion capture systems is fueling the growth of the global 3D motion capture market. Technological innovations in computer vision technology is boosting its demand. Moreover, the real-time data with exceptional spatial and temporal accuracy is propelling the 3D motion capture market growth. However, the requirement of specific hardware and software programs for data processing is limiting the growth of 3D motion capture market.
The market of 3D motion capture is highly competitive and the key strategies adopted by the key players are new product launch, product development, business expansion, merger, and acquisition. For instance, in October 2018, NIT Americas partnered with Motion Analysis Corporation to provide 3D Motion Capture Solutions. Motion Analysis Corporation provides accurate, expandable motion capture systems for Sports Biomechanics, Industrial Design & Ergonomics, Health & Rehabilitation Research, and other Movement Analysis applications. The 3D Motion Analysis team at NIT Americas, championed by Jim Karageorgiou, is providing industry leading 3D Motion Tracking Solutions to Universities, Research Labs, and Clinics throughout the U.S.
