3D Scanning Market Size & Growth (2020 - 2025)

The global 3D scanning market size was USD 4.30 Billion in 2019 and is expected to expand at a CAGR 7.9 % to reach USD 7.24 Billion by 2025 during the forecast period of 2020 – 2025.

3D scanning is the method of examining a real-world object or environment in order to gather information on its shape and possibly its appearance. The data collected can then be used to build digital 3D models. 

Collected 3D data is useful for various applications. The entertainment industry commonly uses such technologies in the development of films and video games, including virtual reality. Certain specific applications of this technology involve augmented reality, motion capture, gesture recognition, robotic mapping, industrial design, reverse engineering and prototyping, orthotics and prosthetics, digitalization of cultural artifacts, and quality control/inspection.

Recent Developments of 3D Scanning Market

In June 2018, Hexagon AB launched Leica RTC360, a laser scanner equipped with state-of-the-art computing technology that enables the rapid and highly accurate creation of 3D models in the field. According to the company, this is the world's first 3D laser scanner with automatic field pre-registration.

In February 2019, 3D Systems announced the release of a new version of Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS, with enhanced design, user interface and support for different scanning systems and export-import formats. The business planned to make the latest version available as of March 2019.

In October 2018, US-based Lune wave, a start-up developing 3D antenna and radar sensor software for use in self-driving vehicles and other applications, received USD 5 million in seed funding.


  • In the recent past, technological advances in the hardware and software market have greatly revolutionized the development industry. Increasing demands of the user to view and feel the item in a real environment have led to the need for 3D scanning and printing tools that create a strong impression of real-life experience and convey a less retro-manufactured look. The realistic portrayal of product design during production allows it more attractive for established suppliers to draw a large customer base through innovative designs. This is a significant driver of the 3D scanning market.
  • Design and image modeling have a vital role to play in providing enhanced 3D presentations. Innovative technologies, such as 3D projections and interactive design, give the users synchronized experience. This is a significant driver of the market. 


The crowded industry with players ranging from small start-ups to market giants, one has to invest in R&D heavily to stay afloat and keep up with the innovations of the industry, this can be considered as a small restraint to the 3D Scanning market. 

This Research Report Includes the Segmentation & Sub-segmentation of 3D Scanning Market until 2024.

3D Scanning Market - By Type

  • Laser Scanner
  • Optical Scanner
  • Structured Light Scanner

Based on the Type, the Structured light scanners are projected to grow significantly from 2019 to 2024. The 3D laser scanner is expected to lead by 2024 in terms of market volume.

The structured light scanner uses a stable light source with a uniform electron flow capability such as LEDs. Such devices provide high precision and speed, making them exorbitantly priced and deployed in highly complex organized scanning, where accuracy in the mapping of coordinates is of paramount importance; for example, in aero design and custom-made automotive parts design. Also, 3D scanning and post-printing technologies are substantial evidence of rapid progress in the 3D laser scanning field, allowing users to dynamically change their models and create practical prototypes in the maritime and architecture industries.

3D Scanning Market - By Application

  • Quality Control & Inspection
  • Reverse Engineering
  • Virtual Simulation
  • Others

Based on the Application, the Quality control and inspection accounted for the largest market share in 2018, due to increasing knowledge of advanced medical technology and the need to collect large volumes of 3D data for analysis.

The reverse engineering market is expected to see significant growth over the forecast period. Reverse engineering is becoming more common among other applications. For example, suppliers that initially supplied the components often cease to function. In such cases, it is necessary to re-engineer parts and components for the supply of replacement parts and original parts for follow-up production, which in turn is expected to boost the growth of the segment.

3D Scanning Market - By End-Use

  • Healthcare
  •  Aerospace
