Global 3D Scanner Market is valued at approximately USD 1.03 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 6.9% during the forecast period 2023-2030. 3D scanning is a method of collecting data on the geometry and appearance of a real-world object or environment. The information can subsequently be utilized to generate digital 3D models. A 3D scanner records the structural and surface design, as well as the depth of the scanned object. To determine the 3-D coordinates of the complete object/image/surface, the 3D scanner calculates the distance between its focal views and the object. The 3D Scanner Market is expanding because of factors such as the increasing number of high-tech wearable devices, along with portable and advanced 3D scanners, 3D Scanning technology is increasingly being used in a variety of industries, including automotive, medical, and electronics. Rising healthcare advancements have also rendered 3D scanning beneficial in reconstructive surgeries.

3D scanners are used in the medical field to model body parts in three dimensions, which are then used to construct prosthetics. It can also help with wound healing and maintenance, as well as manufacture body implants. Healthcare and medical experts frequently utilize 3D scanners to create custom-fit orthotic solutions, back braces, ergonomic prosthetic devices, dental implants, measures, and so on. Furthermore, the growing older population is likely to increase the demand for innovative medical technologies. According to the Burden of Digestive Diseases in the United States, more than 20 million GI endoscopies are conducted in the United States each year, with a total of 75 million endoscopies performed in the United States each year. Also, according to the American Cancer Society, there are 238,340 new cases of lung and bronchus cancer in the United States in 2023. Increasing user expectations to experience and feel the product in a real-world setting has resulted in the development of 3D scanning and printing technology that gives a strong illusion of real-life experience while portraying a less retro-manufactured look. Because of the realistic portrayal of the product design during manufacture, it is generating valuable market opportunities for existing vendors. Furthermore, graphics and picture rendering are important to an expanded three-dimensional presentation which can be provided by use innovative technology such as 3D effects and interactive visuals, presenting the user with a synchronized experience. However, Sensitivity to lighting conditions in a given location is a serious challenge for this sort of scanner. It must be handled with extreme care when operating outside
