The increasing volumes of 3D data for modeling and analysis across Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) firms is expected to spur the demand for 3D metrology. AEC firms heavily rely on 3D metrology services for accurate model design while ensuring cost and time efficiency. Optical detectors, 3D laser scanners, and 3D automated optical inspection (AOI) systems are some of the commonly deployed 3D metrology systems in the construction sector for surveying massive project sites. The advent of smart city development along with the surge in infrastructure projects and investments will also supplement the 3D metrology industry growth.

High initial investment may hamper 3D metrology adoption

The incessant need for high initial investments for the deployment of 3D metrology systems could restrain the 3D metrology market growth. Manufacturers are compelled to initiate hefty investments in the setting up of assembly lines, further hampering the industry penetration in some of the underdeveloped regions with lack of capital infrastructure. However, several industry players are focusing on the development of novel handheld scanners integrated with compatible software suits to eliminate the capital constraints. Moreover, the rapid proliferation of industrial automation worldwide is fostering the lucrative need for 3D metrology. The recent breakthroughs in cobots and the early acceptance across the automotive sector will further enhance automated 3D measurements.
