3D Scanners Market to Expand Fourfold by 2030; Raw Material Shortages Due to Covid-19 Restrictions Impeding Market Growth

May 18,2020 | Technology

3D scanners have been witnessing huge adoption for commercial use cases. In addition, the flexibility of 3D scanning technology to be customized as per professional requirements in several industries has boosted its adoption across prominent end-use industries. Case in point, in the healthcare sector, 3D scanners are leveraged to model body organs in three dimensions, which is utilized to create prosthetics. They can also be used to facilitate wound management and form body implants. Against this backdrop, the global 3D scanners market would grow at an impressive CAGR in excess of 14% over the forecast period of 2020-2030.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has hit the profit margins of electronics manufacturers, globally. As such, players in the 3D scanners market are confronting raw material shortages with weeks of delays, on an average. Further, manufacturing and automotive industries are key revenue creators for the 3D scanners market, and the pandemic has severely affected these industries too. Consequently, the 3D scanners market would witness a notable drop in demand from these industries. A majority of manufacturers are forecasting a decline in sales over the first two quarters of 2020, and over 60% players are projecting business operations to recover by October 2020.

“Recent tech-enabled advances in the healthcare industry, investment upheaval in medical equipment, expanding geriatric pool, and fast-paced development of healthcare infrastructure in developing regions are propelling the growth of the 3D scanners market. Implementation of such scanning technologies in the healthcare industry enables professionals to precisely measure patients’ anatomy and deliver accurate results.”

Key Takeaways of 3D Scanners Market Study

  • 3D scanners/hardware will continue to hold leading market share over the following decade.
  • Among all the services, 3D design and modeling services are expected to expand at the highest CAGR over the coming years.
