Demand for Safety Laser Scanners to Surge Supported by Growing Concerns Regarding the Safety of Workers: FMI Study

Future Market Insights (FMI) has recently published a report titled “Safety Laser Scanner Market – Global Industry Analysis 2013-2018 and Opportunity Assessment 2019-2027.” A safety laser scanner is a protective scanning device that has switchable and configurable field sets for warning and safety purposes. Safety laser scanners are usually used for zone guarding the area where equipment is produced as well as for monitoring the path travelled by moving vehicles.

A safety laser scanner detects when a person approaches within the range of any hazardous movement. In situations where it is difficult to watch in the danger zones, the safety laser scanner detects a person’s location and stops the hazardous movement immediately. A safety laser scanner activates the controlled barking system when a hazardous movement takes place or if the warning field is accessed, thus preventing access to the protected field.

The global safety laser scanner market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% during the projected period. The safety laser scanner market was valued at US $ 235.7 Mn in 2018, and is expected to grow significantly to reach US $ 402.2 Mn by 2027 due to the increasing usage of safety laser scanners for mobility applications in manufacturing industries.
