The market for software is expected to grow at a highest CAGR during the forecast period

The demand for 3D scanning solutions is expected to grow significantly in the next two to three years, owing to the increased demand for OEM data management solutions. 3D scanning software comprises measurement, evaluation, and management software, which help carry out highly accurate measurements. This software is used to acquire and process data collected by CMM, 3D scanners, etc. Dimensional measurement information systems, comprising dimensional measurement software packages for coordinate measuring machines and portable measurement devices, are used to measure the dimensions of aerospace and automotive components. Other 3D scanner-related software includes computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing, automation, cloud, and imaging software. 3D scanning solutions include mobile apps, data management solutions, data security solutions, and analytical solutions.

The medical industry is expected to grow at significant CAGR from 2023 to 2028

3D scanners designed specifically for scanning the human body are becoming increasingly popular in the medical industry as they provide high-resolution body surface measurement data. These scanners can help develop numerically and perceptually accurate digital body models. The measurement data captured by 3D scanners are used in plastic surgeries, orthopedics, prosthetic orthodontics, dermatology, and other applications. Healthcare practitioners can also quickly perform a complete body scan using stationary or handheld 3D scanners. The data collected allows doctors to research and monitor changes in the body, collect & compare pre-op & post-op data, and develop custom solutions (such as braces, implants, and wheelchairs).
