Global 3D Scanner Market to Reach USD 7.9 Billion by 2028

Published | 18 July 2022

The global 3D scanner market is predicted to develop due to rising interest in improved medical treatments, expanding focus on quality control, and growing demand to collect massive amounts of 3D data for modelling and analysis…

A recent study by the strategic consulting and market research firm; BlueWeave Consulting revealed that the Global 3D Scanner Market was worth USD 3.0 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach up to USD 7.9 billion by the year 2028, growing at a CAGR of 14.8% over the analysis period of 2022-2028. 3D scanning is gaining popularity in the industry and has established itself as a crucial instrument in the process of product lifecycle management (PLM). It has completely changed how businesses model, develop, and visualise the real environment in the game industry. The process of measuring and recording has been streamlined and enhanced because to advances in scanning in a variety of sectors, from engineering and manufacturing to healthcare. Additionally, by incorporating three-dimensional scanning into their workflow, current measuring specialists can become more efficient.

Rapidly Using 3D Scanners to Produce Digital Models for Video Games and Virtual Cinematography

3D scanners are used in the media and entertainment sector to create digital or 3D models for virtual filmmaking and video games. Instead of building 3D models from scratch, real items, including actors, are scanned. When used with computer-aided design (CAD) software, 3D scanners enable designers to create costumes and props in a matter of hours. Scanning is used in the gaming business to look at people, things, and the environment to create realistic simulations through gamification. To improve user experience for players, the majority of game developers have started adopting 3D scanning to generate gaming characters.

For instance, in 2021, a 3D scanning solution for customised avatars and virtual objects is recently introduced by Metahero. By fusing 3D scanning and modelling technology with NFT smart contracts, Metahero makes it possible to create one-of-a-kind, ultra-HD meta avatars and meta-objects that can last indefinitely on the blockchain.

Quality Inspection Dominated the Global 3D Scanner Market

On the basis of service, the 3D scanner market has been segmented into reverse engineering, quality inspection, rapid prototyping, and face body scanning. When working with soft materials, objects with complex geometries, or freeform shapes, engineers and metrology specialists from top manufacturing companies that make everything from automotive parts to medical equipment prefer 3D coordinate measuring systems for their submillimeter accuracy, speed, and unmatched usability. Companies all around the world are utilizing 3D scanners as a substitute for Coordinate Measurement Machines (CMM) devices. 3D scanners allow for highly accurate, non-contact measurements of 3D profiles. For complex setups, they provide automation tools that enable consistent measurements between operators.
