3D scanners are used for the measurement of tangible things utilizing light, X-ray or laser and creating polygon meshes or dense point clouds. 3D scanning technology is adopted in manufacturing cycles and provides various advantages such as saves time, money and material.

With the utilization of 3D scanning, approximately 75% of the manufacturing design cycle cost can be minimized. This technology offers various advantages such as quick capture of physical measurements of any object, time efficient design work and precise measurements of the manufacturing parts.The global 3D scanning market is expected to rise with a CAGR of 7.5%.

3D scanners are also called laser scanners, 3D digitizers, LIDAR, white light scanners, industrial CT etc. The driving forces of this market are increasing focus in quality control, need to capture large volumes of 3D data for analysis and modeling and others.

Reverse engineering is expected to pick high pace during the forecast period. The main applications of 3D scanners are in automotive, defense, manufacturing and aerospace, there 3D scanners provide high precision which is why the reverse engineering market is expected to rise at a high rate.

The global 3D Scanner market has six major segments that are offering, type, range, product, application and end user industry. The offering segment has been divided into hardware & software and aftermarket services. The second segment (type) has been sub divided into laser 3D scanners and structured light 3D scanners.

Range which is the major segment has been further divided into short range, medium range and long range.
