Research and Markets: United States 3D Scanning Market Outlook 2018: Increased Usage of Structured Light-based 3D Scanning

DUBLIN — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 9, 2014Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "3D Scanning Market in the US 2014-2018" report to their offering.

The 3D Scanning market in the US to grow at a CAGR of 10.94% over the period 2013-2018

3D scanning is a fast and accurate method of transferring the physical measurements of an object to a computer in an organized manner, producing 3D scan data. A 3D scanner measures the physical world using lasers, lights or x-rays and generates dense point clouds. The 3D attributes of an object are captured along with information such as color and texture and a point cloud is then created by the hardware. The software converts this point cloud into a digital 3D object representation with high accuracy. The technology saves time, cost and efforts during the manufacturing process and improves the quality of output. It also has immense applications in industries such as Healthcare, Entertainment, and Construction.

To calculate the market size, the report considers revenue generated from hardware, software, and services. Hardware includes 3D scanners that collect data; software includes software for point cloud presentation and manipulation, and services include implementation, support, and maintenance services.

Increase in usage of structured light-based 3D scanning is one major trend emerging in the market. These scanners have various applications, including documenting objects of cultural heritage institutions, structured measurement of grinded surfaces, forensic investigations, and reverse engineering.

According to the report, one of the major drivers in this market is the increased demand for 3D laser scanning. Most architectural and civil engineering organizations use laser scanners to improve their client relations, and thus increase their revenue.

Further, the report states that high implementation costs associated with 3D devices and applications is one major challenge in the market. The high cost of maintenance of 3D scanners is restricting its acceptance by organizations and is limiting its penetration in the market.
