There is an increasing demand for optical scanners that enable to perform highly precise and repeatable metrology-grade measurements and 3D geometrical surface inspections. These scanners are increasingly used in reverse engineering applications, particularly in the automobile industry. For instance, European Aeronautic Defense and Space company (EADS) has been using the MetraSCAN 3D optical scanner offered by Creaform Inc. for making parts/CAD comparisons and for scanning composite parts (carbon/epoxy). By using a 3D optical scanner, a highly accurate representation of the 3D printed part is acquired. This makes it a vital tool in the manufacturing sector.

The expanding entertainment & media industry will offer growth opportunities to the 3D scanning market. The technology will be used to scan people to create images for an animated movie. 3D scanning can also be used to virtually create an environment by scanning the actual geographic location. With the help of 3D scanning technology, entertainment design companies can create props, costumes, and sets. The technology also reduces the cost of 3D movie production and game development, effectively transforming innovative imagination into reality. The media & entertainment companies will increasingly use 3D scanning solutions to construct virtual scenes and reproduce real world characters and objects.

The expanding construction sector in the Middle East & Africa will boost the 3D scanning market demand. The rise of the tourism sector has resulted in the construction of new shopping centers and commercial complexes. The government organizations in countries, such as Saudi Arabia and the UAE, are also focusing on strengthening and modernizing the infrastructure to ensure overall economic development. They are undertaking large-scale transportation infrastructure development projects to ensure the global economy competitiveness. New airport development projects will also support the market expansion during the forecast timeframe.
