According to a new market research report by Allied Market Research titled, "Global 3D Scanning Market (Type, Forms, Services, Applications, Geography) - Industry Analysis, Trends, Share, Opportunities and Forecast, 2013-2020," the global 3D scanning market is forecast to reach $4.9 billion by 2020 registering a CAGR of 12.4% during the forecast period (2014 - 2020).


Improving standards of healthcare services across the globe would result in the increased adoption of high-end instruments in medical treatments. The AMR report estimates that the 3D scanning market would witness rapid growth due to the rising number of efficient scanners used in healthcare applications such as MRIs and Sonography machines, especially in the Asian and European region.


3D laser scanners are being widely adopted in various industries. The ease of portability and relatively low price associated with laser scanners are key factors encouraging its adoption. In recognizing the potential of this type of scanners, numerous companies are launching scanners based on laser technology. 3D laser scanners from companies such as Faro Technologies, Direct Dimensions inc., Creaform (now Ametek Inc.), etc. are preferred in various industries such as manufacturing, pipe check solutions, civil, etc.

The initiatives taken by the governments across world to enhance the health care sector and provide superior health care facilities are driving the adoption of 3D scanners in the healthcare industry. The scanners have been very efficient in scanning the human body with their short and medium range scanning capabilities. These high-quality scanners provided by numerous vendors in the market are effective in diagnosing hidden problems in the human body. The rising demand for better and more sophisticated healthcare facilities and the growing health consciousness in developing countries is also responsible for the technological adoption.

3D scanning, an integral domain of 3D technology, refers to the method used to capture a three dimensional view of an object along with information such as colour, texture, etc. 3D scanning makes it possible to record the details of an object while minimizing the overall time, cost and effort required in the process. Various industries have begun to rely on 3D scanning for reverse engineering purposes.


AMR's analysis suggests that reverse engineering services are the most attractive segment in the 3D scanning market, anticipating significant revenue generation through 2020. Various industrial applications such as manufacturing, automobile, defence, etc. prefer reverse engineering as a service of 3D scanning due to its effective analysis and modification of industry specific products. Recently, Geomagic launched its Design X solution in the 3D scanning market. This solution assists in reverse engineering by effectively capturing the object details and converting them to computer readable forms. Laser Design, Inc. offers its own versions of laser scanners for reverse engineering in the market. Faro Technologies launched its own versions of laser scanners operating in different ranges to facilitate reverse engineering. However, face/body scanning is set to rapidly grow over time due to applications in medical and varied security related instruments. Shorter-range operations of 3D scanners are most commonly preferred due to their capability to capture the finest details. Laser scanners are most commonly used in short range scanning. Handheld short range scanners developed by Faro Technologies, Creaform (now Ametek Inc.), GOM mbH, etc. are popular in the market in applications such as entertainment, healthcare, automotive, pipe inspection, etc.

The companies profiled in the report include Faro Technologies, Ametek Inc., Quality Vision International, Direct Dimensions Inc., GOM mbH, Konica Minolta, Inc., 3D Digital Corporation, Autodesk Inc., 3D Systems, Inc., ShapeGrabber and Maptek Pty Ltd.
