The main reason for using 3D motion capture is to speed up the development cycle for complex 3D CGI characters for film, television, or video games. The market for 3D motion capture systems is booming. These advancements are fueled by the market's ongoing innovation to provide high-quality motion capture that is accurate, portable, and inexpensive. Because of the market's dynamic and developing character, a variety of products have emerged, including marker-less, inertial/non-inertial systems, active/passive systems, and portable/fixed systems. End-users of these systems, on the other hand, choose systems that deliver high-quality and precise data for applications like gaming, films, biomechanical analysis, robotics, education, engineering, and others. And the market has been seen to expand in response to end-user expectations. Furthermore, market expansion is being fueled by technological advancements in computer vision technology, as well as an increase in demand for and preference for high-quality 3D animations.
Amid the COVID-19, due to national lockdown in states across the world, the entertainment production houses are paused. This is impacting the 3D motion capture system business. Nevertheless, this is also causing in falling demand for the solutions. Also, from the software perspective, the frequent renewal of licenses is likely to continue producing income for the dealers in the market.
Insight by Type Outlook
Based on the type outlook, the global 3D motion capture system market is spread into optical systems and non-optical systems. In 2022, largest market share was held by non-optical 3D motion segment with significant share in terms of revenue of the total market. Optical and non-optical systems are one of the most dynamic digital and display technology areas, due to the technological developments, wide adoption, and large-scale applications. Optical systems come in a variety of technologies, including active marker, passive marker, markerless, and underwater. Optical systems practice cameras to track motion capture and use deep or pulse LEDs. High-quality cameras, sensors, and accessories are components of optical systems. Non-optical systems enable real-time data output, many performance options, and do not require the usage of markers to operate.
Insight by Component Outlook
Based on the component outlook, the global 3D motion capture system market is spread into hardware, software, and services. In 2022, software dominated the market with considerable share in terms of revenue of the total market. It serves as a basic interface between the many technologies involved in the motion capture process. It is mostly utilized to turn raw footage into an animated version, making it a significant part of the overall process. Major investments are always made in order to improve software solutions, which are predicted to promote the sub segment’s rise as the greatest market share.
Insight by Application Outlook
Based on the application outlook, the global 3D motion capture system market is spread into media & entertainment, engineering and industrial applications, education, biomechanical research & medical applications, and others. In 2022, media & entertainment dominated the market with considerable share in terms of revenue of the total market. Video game studios are currently implementing 3D motion capture technology in order to reduce post-production time. With the application of these devices and motion analysis techniques, synchronizing animation became simple. The motion analysis performed by firms today provides unprecedented tracking precision and low latency, and it fits smoothly into many of today's gaming engines. Furthermore, 3D motion capture firms are developing active LED markers to provide reliable tracking for gaming systems, allowing for less weight on the truss and less wires to route, boosting the gaming experience.
