DUBLIN, Dec. 04, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Portable Scanner Market 2015-2019" report to their offering.

The two types of imaging scanners are linear imagers and 2D imagers. Linear imagers are exclusively for 1D barcodes and are an updated version of traditional laser scanners. Linear imagers are highly efficient and can handle difficult-to- barcodes, and are therefore preferred over laser scanners. 2D imagers are gaining attention, as they are capable of reading both 1D and 2D barcodes.

According to the report, the portability factor of scanners is contributing to the growth of the market. Portable scanners can be carried anywhere and placed at any angle to read a barcode. They are commonly used in warehouses and for logistics, where heavier objects or goods have to be counted or measured, thereby helping in inventory management.

Further, the report states that a major challenge that the portable scanner market will face is the growing popularity of smartphones, especially when it comes to 2D barcodes. Only 2D imagers and scanners are capable of reading 2D as well as 1D barcodes. Now, smartphones have the ability to read 2D barcodes. Thus, the high adoption of smartphones in the consumer electronics market and in industries such will impact the sale of 2D imagers.

In terms of revenue, this new report has estimated the global portable scanner market to post an impressive market value of more than USD 1,300 million by 2019. Factors like the high portability of these scanners coupled with its ability to assist in inventory management are expected to account for this markets steady growth during the forecast period.
