Research and Markets: Global 3D Scanning Market Forecasts to 2018 with Creaform, Faro Technologies, Konica Minolta & Surphaser Dominating

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/5gmrvc/global_3d) has announced the addition of the "Global 3D Scanning Market Forecasts to 2018 with Creaform, Faro Technologies, Konica Minolta & Surphaser Dominating" report to their offering.

The Global 3D Scanning market is highly fragmented, which creates many opportunities for mergers and acquisitions.

Both large application vendors and core software-based 3D scanning vendors are taking the merger and acquisition route to enhance their market presence and expand their reach. Large companies are acquiring smaller players with the motive of increasing their product portfolio and market share. Through such acquisitions, larger companies gain a competitive edge by achieving technological advancement and obtaining the opportunity to enter emerging or new markets. For instance, in October 2012, 3D Systems acquired Rapidform for US$35 million and in December 2012, Stratasys Inc. and Objet Ltd. merged to become the leader in 3D printing and direct digital manufacturing. Since many vendors are seeking to gain market share, more acquisitions are anticipated during the forecast period.

According to the report, one of the major drivers in this market is the increasing demand for 3D laser scanning. Currently, there is increasing demand for automated business processes that permit flexibility in response to changing business conditions. The changing demands and market environment have prompted organizations to use laser scanning in order to reduce their overall scanning and printing costs. To respond to the constantly changing technological environment, it is important for organizations to adopt new technologies such as laser scanning.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in this market is the high cost of implementation of 3D devices and applications. Although 3D scanners offer several benefits such as better accuracy, their high cost is a major barrier to their adoption among organizations. In addition to capital costs, maintenance costs of such systems can be high, thereby limiting the growth of the market.

The key vendors dominating this market space are:

  • Creaform Inc.
  • Faro Technologies Inc.
  • Konica Minolta Inc.
  • Surphaser.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
"We provide DevOps solutions. We also partner with some key players in the DevOps space and we use the technology that we partner with to engineer custom solutions for different organizations," stated Himanshu Chhetri, CTO of Addteq, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Leo Papadopoulos, CTO of Cloud9, discussed the importance of WebRTC and how it enables companies to focus o...
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
