Abstract: The roots of laser scanning technology can be traced back to the 1960s but is only recently became more notable in the construction industry as the Government pushes for technology to improve productivity amidst the fourth industrial revolution. Currently, the common uses of the laser scanner are for 3D reconstruction of the project environment/progress. Furthermore, based on available studies there are many other potential uses for the laser scanners. This does not seem to be reflected in the industry as there are reports that states a lack of adoption for this technology though no statistics are able to back this up. Therefore, the focus of this paper is to collect statistical data regarding the awareness and adoption status of laser scanning technology. Using this opportunity, the survey also collected market insight regarding the use and benefits of the laser scanners. Results from the survey showed that generally, the market is open to and will consider adopting this technology, but certain considerations hamper some companies on adopting the technology such as the cost of adopting it. The results have also revealed that there is a lack of awareness on some of the potential benefits of adopting the laser scanning technology. However, a more thorough study would be required due to a lack of responses to draw a more well-grounded inference and conclusion with regards to the market trends on laser scanning technology.
