Is the 3D Laser Scanning Industry Maturing?

faroIn the early days of an emerging industry the innovations come at a rapid pace. As an industry begins to mature that pace naturally slows down. Perhaps the manufacturers are working on a new round of disruptive products that will soon be announced, but for now it seems that recently we are seeing mainly incremental improvements.

I am thinking of something like what FARO did a few years ago when they shocked the market with their Focus3D.

A lot of the excitement today seems to be with technologies that use 3D data such as augmented/virtual reality and the autonomous vehicle industry. These drive the need for 3D data which is good for the laser scanning ecosystem.

Perhaps it’s just me. What do you think?

    Might be the right time to expand your horizon and look at other solutions, e.g. fully portable high-end 3D scanners, giving you the freedom to scan in areas, which are difficult to access, but providing you with a high accuracy at the same time:
