LONDON, Jan. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- 3D scanners capture and measure geometry of physical object or environment by using lasers or structured light. Data captured by these 3D scanners are often called as point clouds, which are used by software to create 3D representation of the scanned object or physical environment for in-depth analysis, inspection, and modification. 3D scanners find wide application across several industries to ensure high product quality.
3D scanner market is divided into four major geographies, namely the Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World (RoW).
North America accounted for majority of the Americas 3D scanner market and includes countries the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. North American region has always been in the forefront in adopting new 3D scanning technologies for various applications across industries such as automotive, healthcare and, aerospace industry. This region has also been an early adopter in using 3D scanners in many new and emerging applications such as forensics, crime scene investigation, and fashion & jewelry among others. Europe closely follows North America for this market.
The report predicts that the 3D scanner market is expected to reach $3.7 billion by 2020 at a CAGR of 9.0%, from 2015 to 2020.
