Overview of the global construction laser market

Research analysis on the global construction laser market identifies that the increasing popularity of laser scanning will be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of the market. Technavio’s market research analysts predict that this market will grow at a CAGR of around 5% by 2021. Laser scanning is a method of reality capture or high-accuracy mapping that employs laser beams to quickly capture the complete detail of the whole building in a construction project Originally used for maintaining and constructing industrial plant facilities, laser scanning has been widely utilized for several other uses such as implementation in building construction projects and BIM processes. The utilization of laser scanning throughout the construction project will yield a new facility with a built documentation from all the major milestones in the project, producing a record of what is above the ceilings, behind the walls, and under the floor slabs for owners to utilize throughout the lifecycle of the building. Moreover, the advantages of laser scanning do not stop at preconstruction coordination as it allows scanning progressively during construction to compare with drawings and designed models providing archival records of the buildings.

The miniaturization of sensors is one of the latest trends that will contribute to the growth of this market in the forthcoming years. The ZX laser sensor from Omron, one of the leading vendors in the sensor industry, works on 12-24 volts of direct current (VDC) and has two digital displays. The sensor with plug-and-play feature is designed for a range of maximum 2,000 mm sensing distance. It is equipped with a smart monitor software, which enables the sensor to work directly with a notebook or PC. It is also expected that the future of the laser distance meters will be driven by such plug-and-play sensor modules that can be integrated with smartphones and tablets using a software app.

Competitive landscape and key vendors  

The construction laser market consists of well-diversified international, regional, and local vendors. These regional and local vendors provide cost-effective equipment with limited operational capabilities and at a much cheaper price than those of the global players. Since the international players are expanding their footprint, the local vendors are finding it difficult to compete with the especially based on factors such as quality, features, and aftersales services. The competitive environment of this market is likely to intensify with the increase in product extensions and technological innovations.

The leading vendors in the market are -

  • Fortive
  • Robert Bosch
  • Stanley Black & Decker
  • Trimble

The other prominent vendors in the market are Alltrade Tools, Amberg, DotProduct, FARO, FLIR Systems, GeoDigital, GeoSLAM, Hilti, Makita, mantis vision, Maptek, Renishaw, NCTech, RIDGID, Spatial Integrated Systems, Stabila, Surphaser, Teledyne Optech, Topcon, and Zoller + Fröhlich
