Landscape of the global 3D terrestrial laser market

The global 3D terrestrial laser scanning market was valued at around $160 million in 2014. Several factors including an increase in the number of construction sites have led to various surveying companies adopting this technology. 3D terrestrial laser scanning technology reduces the high costs of operation. Therefore, organizations adopt this technology to reduce risk, speed up task completion, and provide improved quality control.

The market is expected to witness moderate growth during the forecast period. The market vendors will look to expand and refine their capabilities, offer bundled services to clients, and move up the value chain by providing a combination of scanning, printing, and business-specific solutions.

Key end-user analysis of the global 3D terrestrial laser scanning market

  • Civil engineering and infrastructure
  • Forestry
  • Transportation
  • Others

3D terrestrial laser scanning helps in tracking the transportation around the globe. This helps the organizations in maintaining the record of all the transport facilities. It is used mostly in railways and roadways as they need to maintain the supply of goods and continue the passenger trail. The application of 3D to track new places for the construction is expected to gain significant traction over the next four years.

Geographical segmentation of the global 3D terrestrial laser market

  • APAC
  • EMEA
  • Americas

The increased concerns among organizations about their financial expenses are driving the growth of the market in Americas. Factors such as federal investments in printing techniques and scanning provide the impetus for the adoption of new technology. However, due to the high initial investment and the increased privacy concerns, the market is expected to grow at a moderately until 2019.
