IDC Innovators are emerging vendors with revenue <$100 million that have demonstrated either a groundbreaking business model or an innovative new technology — or both. This IDC Innovators study profiles Artec3D, Occipital, Scan Dimension, and Calibry3D; highlights these four compelling manufacturers in the 3D scanning market; and identifies some of the key developments that IDC believes will have a meaningful positive impact on the 3D scanning market in the future.
"The 3D scanner market is still small and growing quickly, yet a few large vendors cater to smaller customers including SMBs. This leaves an opportunity for small vendors to make an impact and bring major technological innovation into the market. Those following the market should take note of these small vendors, as we expect they will play a key role in expanding both the market and the capabilities of these machines." — Max Pepper, research analyst, Imaging, Printing, and Document Solutions at IDC
