3D Camera Market Size To Rake USD 37.92 Bn Billion 2032

Published Date : 27 Jul 2023

The global 3D camera market size surpassed USD 3.6 billion in 2022 and it is expected to rake around USD 37.92 billion by 2032, poised to grow at a CAGR of 26.6% during the forecast period 2023 to 2032.

3D Camera Market Size and Growth Rate From 2023 To 2032

A 3D camera is an image tool that has two lenses. It accurately reproduces the image as seen through human binocular vision. Three-dimensional photos are captured by 3D cameras, improving the overall quality of the images. It enables photographers to take pictures that give the appearance of depth in 2D photos, enhancing the image's aesthetic value. The use of 3D technology in video cameras is not a unique idea because 3D videos allow viewers to naturally immerse themselves in the action than 2D film does. Instead, then using just one lens, as is the case with the present paradigm of cameras, stereo 3D cameras use two. Global adoption of 3D cameras is anticipated to be fueled by expanding applications of surveillance in the industrial, military, and home security sectors.

Report Highlights:

  • On the basis of technology, the time-of-flight segment will have a larger market share in the coming years period, and the amount of revenue generated through the use of this product will grow well in the coming year. This is so that 3D cameras can determine the distance between the sensor and the closest surface point using the time-of-flight approach. Additionally, TOF cameras are growing in popularity due to their low price and suitability for everyday photography and consumer applications. A TOF camera uses infrared light (lasers invisible to the human eye) to calculate depth information, much like how a bat perceives its surroundings. In addition, the sensor emits a light signal that, after striking the object, returns to the sensor. Then, depth mapping is possible thanks to the calculation of the time it takes to bounce back. Because it can accurately measure distances across an entire scene with just one laser pulse, it has a substantial edge over competing technologies.
  • On the basis of application, the professional camera segment has the biggest market share in the 3D camera market during the forecast period. More expert 3D cameras are projected to be employed to record live-action movies as the market for 3D movies grows. Motion pictures are recorded with stereo cameras. To save time and money, professional 3D cameras are chosen to expensive computer-generated imagery (CGI).

Regional Snapshots:

The biggest market share was held by the Asia-Pacific in the 3D camera market during the forecast period. Due to the increasing adoption of smartphones, Asia-Pacific now controls the 3D camera industry. During the anticipated term, the region's 3D camera market will expand even more due to rising disposable income and low camera ownership. The Asia Pacific region accounted for the largest revenue share in the 3D camera market in 2022. This is because fewer people own cameras, more people are using smartphones, the entertainment industry is growing, there is more money accessible, and these factors are all increasing. The expansion of the industrial sector in the region's developing nations will also help the regional market expand even further.

Market Dynamics:


The application of 3D imaging is expanding in fields such as robotics, virtual reality, home automation, and video surveillance. Due to its simplicity and precision, creating 3D models of items and their surroundings has also become more popular. Over the forecast period, the market's growth is anticipated to be boosted by the rising demand for 3D scanning. Global adoption of 3D cameras is anticipated to be fueled by expanding applications of surveillance in the industrial, military, and home security sectors.

The gaming and entertainment industries are seeing an increase in demand for 3D content, and 3D-capable devices like TVs, tablets, and smartphones are becoming more widely available. The growing interest in 3D movies is directly influencing the demand for professional cameras for 3D content production. The efficiency of hardware to determine the depth and distance of objects is being improved with millions of dollars being invested by major tech companies like Google, Microsoft, and Apple. Widening the range of applications for 3D cameras is a requirement for technologies like augmented reality, robotics, and driverless vehicles.

The demand for 3D movies, games, and videos has significantly increased, making it simpler for new participants to enter the 3D camera market. The market for 3D cameras is being driven by the increased visual applications in the entertainment sector. The adoption of 3D technology in cameras is anticipated to result in an expansion of the entertainment industry globally. For instance, Weta Digital's most recent camera was used to shoot a movie in Hollywood, and magnificent future cityscapes were created by DNEG, Framestore, and MPC. A large number of new 3D filmmakers have emerged as a result of the 3D camera's success in the movie business, and as more 3D movies are produced in the future, a long-term 3D camera industry will develop.


Consumers' lack of knowledge and their inability to comprehend the method may serve as a development inhibitor.


Key participants in the 3D camera market should benefit financially from the anticipated rise in home automation applications, virtual reality applications, and automated business processes.


The production process for a 3D camera is expensive, and since the technology is still in its infancy, there are other challenges that the producers must overcome. Therefore, the biggest barrier to the growth of the 3D camera market is cost issues. Despite their widespread use in sectors like logistics, automotive, and gaming, existing industrial 3D solutions are frequently too sophisticated and expensive for many simple 3D applications. Only a limited portion of the market is interested in 3D cameras due to their high price. In spite of the expanded capabilities, market sales are consequently smaller when compared to other camera technologies, such as 2D. The cost issue is the main cause of this.

Recent Developments:

  • In February 2022- The leader in tomographic ultrasound imaging in Europe, PIUR IMAGING, and FUJIFILM VisualSonics have partnered. In this agreement, the businesses planned to combine FUJIFILM VisualSonics and PIUR IMAGING technologies to produce the first portable UHF, 3D ultrasound imaging technology in the market. By separating ultrasound acquisition from image analysis, integration would also provide a workflow for researchers and doctors.
