Market Report Description

The Global Safety Laser Scanner Market size is expected to reach $614.9 Million by 2028, rising at a market growth of 6.2% CAGR during the forecast period.

A safety laser scanner is a tool that locates people or items in a specified space and offers safety precautions to prevent mishaps. A shielding zone is created around the area being scanned by the spinning laser beam that the scanner emits. The scanner detects when something or someone enters the restricted area and generates a signal to the management or control system, which stops or slows down any nearby machinery or equipment.

Safety laser scanners are frequently used in various industries to ensure employee safety and prevent accidents. The safety laser scanner is an improved electro-sensitive protective apparatus made to scan two-dimensional environments with infrared laser beams. In order to provide a high level of protection for employees and prevent accidents, the safety laser scanner is mainly utilized in manufacturing, logistics, automotive, and material handling industries.

Additionally, contemporary safety laser scanners are equipped with sophisticated features like field switching and dynamic protection zones that allow them to adjust to changing environmental circumstances and provide a more precise level of protection. Also, a complete safety system can be created by combining next-generation advanced safety laser scanners with other security measures like light curtains and emergency stop buttons. A safety laser scanner checks to see if there are any people, animals, objects, etc., in the zone. It is assigned to guard rather than just motion.

These devices are set up to monitor a certain area, just like a motion detector. However, with a motion detector, if someone enters the monitored area and remains perfectly still, it will detect that nothing is there. On the other hand, people won't be able to trick a safety laser scanner. Safety laser scanners also detect intrusions to the area using lasers rather than sound waves or infrared light. Safety laser scanners are clever tools that may be set up with many levels of security, programmable alerts, dust filtering, as well as muting on some models. Their wide-angle monitoring range, 275 degrees around the unit, may extend and pick objects up to about 40 meters away.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic severely hampered the development of manufacturing and automotive solutions. Throughout the pandemic, the need for safety laser scanner systems was greatly influenced by the slow growth of manufacturing solutions. In addition, the shortage of qualified staff brought on by the partial and total lockdown imposed by governments worldwide also slowed the expansion of the market for safety laser scanners during the pandemic. However, the demand for the Internet of Things and machine safety systems increased, which fueled the development of safety laser scanner systems and is anticipated to continue doing so during the projected period.

Market Growth Factors

An increase in safety laser scanner demand in the automobile and electronics sectors

Car manufacturers are concentrating on technology advancements to raise the bar for passenger and commercial vehicle safety. An essential component of a car's safety is its navigation system. Safety laser scanners are employed in navigation systems for vehicles to find objects to avoid collisions and guide the vehicle. As a result, safety laser scanners are increasingly being employed in automobile navigation systems. Therefore, safety laser scanners widespread use in electronics and automobile sectors is expected to be one of the primary reasons boosting the growth of the market.

Usability of safety laser scanner in multiple ways

The system can be set up to provide protection against hazardous points. A scanner can create a barrier between people and hazards when they emerge through an opening or breach in a machine. Furthermore, a scanner can be employed vertically to detect persons if their entire body crosses through the protective zone when access prevention is needed to prevent people from accessing an area with a hazard. Hence, the numerous usability that this device provides has made them quite successful in ensuring the safety of workers. Therefore, the safety laser scanner market will grow in the coming years owing to its adaptability.

Market Restraining Factor

Extremely high price of safety laser scanners

Several sectors struggle with installation, maintenance, and service costs in addition to the initial cost. In addition, safety mats, which provide comparable protective measures for some industries, are another important reason, among others, that restrains market expansion during the projection period. Safety mats are highly robust and can work in virtually any environment. These are cost-effective as well. The major market participants for safety laser scanners are trying to cut costs and hence, most of them are more inclined towards using safety mats. Therefore, high cost is anticipated to be a significant roadblock to deploying safety laser scanners during the projected period and will impede this market's expansion.

Type Outlook

Based on type, the safety laser scanner market is categorized into mobile and stationary. The mobile segment procured a considerable growth rate in the safety laser scanner market in 2021. The segment is growing as more end-user businesses adopt it, including those in the automotive, electronics, healthcare, and pharmaceutical sectors. For example, mobile safety laser scanners enhance patient security and satisfaction in the healthcare industry. Also, these safety laser scanners are widely employed in the pharmaceutical manufacturing sector, which makes substantial use of infrared laser beam-based safety equipment.

End Use Outlook

On the basis of end use, the safety laser scanner market is divided into automotive, food & beverages, healthcare & pharmaceuticals, consumer electronics, and others. The automotive segment acquired the largest revenue share in the safety laser scanner market in 2021. Due to the growing usage of automatic guided cars, the automotive industry has deployed safety laser scanners widely (AGVs). For example, when semi-automatic painting is done in a production facility, personnel must frequently enter the machine to remove the painted pieces. In these situations, a cutting-edge safety laser scanner allows for two-way protection of the machine, enabling entry for the operator to replace the finished part while simultaneously securing the region where it is operating on another part.
