Americas dominates the 3D Scanning Market during the forecast period:

Americas has a major share in the 3D Scanning Market during the forecast period. It is expected to reach $4,432 million at a CAGR of 4.5%. The region consists of developed countries such as United States and Canada. US holds the major share of 3D scanners, followed by Canada. 3D scanners is mostly used by the automotive sector in the Americas. The automotive production in the US creates a scope for the 3D scanner suppliers for improving their customer base in the automotive industry. The aerospace sector is another key application that makes use of 3D scanning. NASA is planning to set up a system for 3D printing and assembling structures in space. 3D scanners are also being used by doctors in the region.

Selected Analysis done in the full Report:

Reverse engineering is described as the process of scanning a physical object to create its virtual model in a computer aided design file. 3D scanning has been used in Reverse engineering recently. It can be used to improve efficiency. Reverse innovation projects have been used by many organizations to understand their competitor’s products in order to improve their product portfolio by enhancing customer preferred features. 3D scanning technology can be used to incorporate the optimized process to get a new product design. Reverse engineering has started becoming prominent in growing markets post higher penetration in US and European markets.

Excerpts on Market Growth Factors:

  • 3D scanning contains risk factors for different projects such as brownfield or revamping projects along with deployment of modular construction methods where schedule sensitivity is needed.
