Access Full Summary at:

The 3D imaging market is driven by factors such as technological advancements in electronics sector and increase in demand for high quality resolution and 3D displays. Moreover, integration of medical systems with telesurgery and picture archiving & communication system (PACS) have fueled the adoption of 3D imaging technology in the medical industry. In addition, 3D imaging is used in consumer electronics, such as laptops, smartphones, desktop PCs, tablets, and gaming devices for obtaining high-resolution images as well as in the entertainment industry for digital video imaging and screening 3D movies. Furthermore, advanced driver assistance systems, obstacle detection, gesture recognition in HVAC systems, infotainment, navigation, and other applications in the industrial automation industry has supplemented the market growth. The emergence of 4D technologies is expected to provide lucrative opportunities to market players in the near future.

Complimentary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) image sensor have a wide range of applications in consumer electronics, owing to its low power consumption, low power discrimination, and compact size. 3D scanners have widespread applications in various industries such as defense, manufacturing, entertainment, automotive, architecture, construction, and others, followed by layout and imaging.

The 3D imaging market is driven by high demand for sophisticated healthcare technologies, such as ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography and introduction of new innovative technologies in 3D imaging. In addition, the use of multi-detector CT scanners for 3D reformatting and multiplanar reconstruction apart from offering improved resolution and speed fuel the demand for 3D imaging in the healthcare sector. Furthermore, the high demand for 3D movies, 3D televisions, and videogames have escalated the need for 3D imaging to create image depth and binocular stereoscopy in movies and videogames.

Although technological advancements provide effective solutions and reduce the cost of 3D imaging software, design complexity could hamper the growth of the 3D imaging technology. Moreover, upgrading 2D imaging technology to 3D imaging technology has led to aggrandized data generation, which increases the complexity of operations
