 3D Sensor Market Trends and Developments

The key companies operating in the industry are adopting various growth strategies & business tactics such as partnerships, collaborations, mergers & acquisitions, and launches to maintain a robust position in the overall market, which is subsequently helping the global 3D sensor market to grow exponentially. For instance:

  • In May 2022, LMI Technologies, a global leader of 3D scanning and inspection solutions, announced the official release of its new series of smart 3D line confocal sensors, ‘Gocator 5500’. The major product release by the company introduces the first line confocal sensor that runs Gocator’s trusted smart sensor platform, complete with an on-sensor IIoT vision web-based software, I/O connectivity, and on-board measurement tools.
  • In May 2022, Infineon Technologies, a German semiconductor manufacturer entered into a collaboration with pmdtechnologies, a developer of CMOS semiconductor 3D time-of-flight components and a provider of engineering support in the digital 3D imaging field, in order to create 3D depth-sensing technology for Magic Leap 2, which demonstrates the potential of REAL3 3D Image Sensor. The newest technology allows for advanced cutting-edge industrial & medical applications. The imager captures the physical environment around the user and also assists the device in understanding and interacting with it.
  • In June 2022, STMicroelectronics, a semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications globally, and Metalenz, the first company to commercialize meta-optics, introduced the first 3D sensor with meta-optics. The direct ToF sensor is a depth sensor used in robotics, VR headsets, and smartphones.

Most Profitable Region

The North America region accounted for the highest market size in 2021 and is anticipated to be most dominant during the forecast period. This is majorly owing to the growing usage of IoT in smart cities, businesses, and smart homes in the region. Asp per the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), around 69% of Americans own at least one smart home. Moreover, an increase in investments and supporting ecosystems for IoT enterprises aid sensor makers to develop more complex and highly efficient sensors, which is propelling the demand for 3D sensors in the region.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Market

The outbreak of coronavirus has had a negative impact on the global 3D sensor market, owing to the prevalence of lockdown in various countries across the globe. Lockdowns led to a major shift in product availability since Chinese manufacturers had entirely shut down their product development operations. Various industries, including electronics, automation, and manufacturing were majorly impacted by decreased production capacity and delays at mines, warehouses, and manufacturing facilities worldwide.
