The 3D mapping and modelling market has taken off in rapid fashion, particularly when it comes to healthcare & life sciences. There are several trends that have been observed in the 3D modelling and mapping segment, including machine learning and artificial intelligence integration for better accuracy of modelling and automation alike. Real-time collaboration is also coming to the forefront along with the integration of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). This enables more immersive experiences while there is a higher demand for advanced solutions and simulations in healthcare for better decision-making.
Spatial mapping and geographic information systems (GIS) are also used for varied use cases in the industry. Segmentation in the industry is majorly focused on 3D modelling, 3D rendering, motion graphics, and visual effects (VFX). Along with healthcare & life sciences, other application-based segmentation includes construction and architecture, media and entertainment, manufacturing, academia and education, and more. Let us take a closer look at the key growth trends in the 3D mapping and modelling market.

Some additional insights include the following:
As can be seen, the healthcare & life sciences market should witness skyrocketing growth over the next decade, majorly driven by 3D mapping and modelling along with the integration of technologies like AR, VR, and GIS along with spatial mapping.
Spatial data analysis can boost understanding of various medical conditions and biological systems. It helps in better detection of disease clusters and the underlying variables that may lead to certain medical conditions across these clusters. An early example is the study of the cholera outbreak in London in 1854 by John Snow. This indicated how cholera cases could be traced back to water usage from a particular pump in the city. Spatial data analysis helps in designing preventive healthcare measures while planning interventions at the same time.
There are several advantages of combining VR and AR in medical applications with 3D mapping and modelling. AR-based 3D simulation will help patients get a better understanding of their medical/health conditions. This will also help in interacting with various objects on a real-time basis, with mapping between real-world objects and the virtual world. The superposition of 3D models onto head-mounted displays is possible, along with immersive experiences and information exchange in addition to better decision-making.
3. What are some real-world examples of successful implementations of 3D mapping and modelling in healthcare and life sciences research?
There are numerous real-world examples of 3D mapping and modelling being successfully implemented in the healthcare and life sciences research category. 3D projections of the human body may be used for disseminating medical knowledge. It has already been done by the likes of Oulu University, enabling students to interact with human body visualization, learning better about muscle and bone structures and other parts of the body. 3D modelling is already being deployed for surgeries, enabling surgeons to plan their surgeries more effectively in comparison to paper planning or conventional 2D. It is improving surgery success rates, patient outcomes, and saving time along with lowering the rates of readmission.
