Market Overview

3D scanning is the process of scanning an actual object or environment to gather information about its shape and perhaps appearance. The data acquired can subsequently be used to construct digital 3D models. Modern quality control and inspection systems have become increasingly dependent on 3D scanning technologies in the manufacturing sector. The manufacturing industry encounters several difficulties, where safety, schedule, and cost have risen above the allotted budget constraints because of insufficient and improper dimensional control techniques.


Japan is well-known for being the abode of some of the world's largest manufacturing corporations. The manufacturing industry in Japan, famous for its world-class Japanese engineering technologies, has contributed significantly to the nation's GDP. Manufacturing organizations are increasingly focused on improving product quality while also increasing work efficiency. 3D scanners, a device used to capture the three-dimensional attributes of an object, are in high demand among Japanese businesses because they shorten the turnaround time when designing a product, thereby increasing work efficiency.

Driving Factors

The rising penetration of this cutting-edge technology in the automotive sector, quality control, industrial design, healthcare, and many other sectors is likely to drive the growth of the 3D scanners market in Japan. Additionally, 3D scanners are employed in Japan's construction industry to produce a scaled-down 3D model of a building. These tools aid in the preservation and archiving of historical monuments from museums in the architectural field. Furthermore, one of the key factors boosting the acceptance of 3D printers is the growing use of technology in a variety of businesses. The requirement for 3D scanners will rise in conjunction with the development of 3D printers, fueling the expansion of the utilized market in Japan.


Restraining Factors

Although 3D scanning provides tangible benefits across the production cycle, greatly improving the overall design and production process, the product's initial high cost is limiting the market's growth. In addition, the company must invest in employee training for them to understand the system. Thus, these factors are restraining the growth of the 3D scanners market in Japan.


COVID 19 Impacts

The outbreak of COVID-19 had a substantial impact on Japan's 3D scanning growth in 2020 due to a lack of skilled and professional labour, disruption of demand and supply, and a lack of electronic components. While the COVID-19, increasing adoption of 3D scanning solutions across the healthcare, construction, and commercial sectors drive the growth of the 3D scanning market during the forecast period.


Market Segment

  • In 2022, the hardware segment is witnessing a higher growth rate over the forecast period. 

Based on the type, the Japan 3D Scanners Market is segmented into hardware and software. Among these, the hardware segment is witnessing a higher growth rate over the forecast period. The hardware section is further divided into optical, laser, and structured lighting scanners. A structured-light 3D scanner is a 3D scanning tool that measures an object's three-dimensional layout by projecting numerous lines from a single light source onto it while it is being monitored by one or more cameras. This is in contrast to a laser scanner, which successively generates several laser dots on a single item.
