Global 3D metrology market is expected to reach USD 18.9 Billion by 2025 at a CAGR of 11.2% during the forecast period from 2018-2025. The Three-Dimensional data for modeling and analysis provides reliable and accurate inspection, thereby, stimulating the growth of the market. Also, due to the increasing demand of high amount of 3D data processed simultaneously, the market is expanding.

Market Overview:

3D Metrology (or measurement) is defined as the science of measurement in three dimensions (x, y, and z). 3D (three dimensional) metrology system is the type of technology which measures any distance, length, height, and point of a three dimensional (3D) object for practical and theoretical aspects of measurement in any field. It transforms the real model into architectural images and videos for better outcomes. 3D metrology is implemented throughout the industrialization processes such as designing, production preparation, and purchasing. It is used for controlling the quality to provide accuracy in production. It helps to convert raw material into a finished product. Moreover, it also evaluates hidden points which cannot be measured manually. For instance, in January 2018, SHINING 3D introduced 3D metrology scanner named “EaScan II” which is capable of scanning of heavy and large objects with high speed and accuracy rate.
