Press Release

Global 3D Scanning Market is Expected to Grow at a CAGR of 8.6% in the Forecast Period of 2020-2025.

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global 3D Scanning Market Report and Forecast 2020-2025’, the global 3D scanning market reached a value of around USD 4.9 billion in 2019. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.6% between 2020 and 2025.

The global 3D scanning market is primarily being driven by the rising demand from the application sectors. The growing use of 3D scanner in industries including aerospace and defence, automotive, architecture and building, medical, electronics, and heavy machinery and energy is pushing the growth of the hardware and software industry forward. The large market size of hardware and software can also be attributed to the increased acceptance of modern 3D scanner software upgrades.

In the Asia Pacific region, there are tremendous growth opportunities for the 3D scanner industry in the forecast period, with the industry in the region projected to expand at a fast pace in the coming years. This region comprises of emerging economies like China and India, which have tremendous 3D scanning market growth potential. The rise in the number of engineering as well as infrastructure ventures, increasing preference for customer implants (in medical applications) to guarantee better and quicker recovery, and a much-greater number of dental restoration operations in this region are some of the key factors pushing the expansion of the 3D scanner market in the Asia Pacific region.

In June 2015, 3D Systems (NYSE: DDD), one of the key players, announced the availability of the popular iSenseTM 3D scanner for iPhone. The iSense also provided a comprehensive update to the iSense app for iPhone and iPad users. The new device update includes improved tracking, speeds up to 3 times faster than previous models, and full-colour vibrancy via texture mapping. Smoother, as well as easier, scanning experience, faster average scanning times of 5 to 30 seconds, and also an enjoyable user experience are achieved by improvements in tracking and speed. This major technology update was issued for all current iSense owners in the iOS app store free of charge. Such developments have aided the growth of 3D scanners in the historical period. Innovations and technological advancements in the industry are expected to propel the growth of the global 3D scanning market in the forecast period too.
