The overall 3D printing market is expected to be worth USD 32.78 Billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 25.76% between 2017 and 2023. The 3D printing market is expected to grow substantially due to the factors such as the ease of development of customized products, reduction in overall manufacturing costs, rising government investments in the 3D printing projects, upbringing of new and innovative printing materials, and rising interest from certain big companies such as GE (US), Liebherr Group (Switzerland), Diehl Aerosystems Holding GmbH (Germany), and BAE Systems (UK).

The 3D printing market based on offering has been subsegmented into offering, which is further sub-segmented into printer (desktop and industrial), material (type: metal, plastic, ceramic, and other materials; and form: powder, liquid, and filament); service (custom design and manufacturing, and after-sales services); and software (design, inspection, scanning, and printing). On the basis of process, the market is segmented into powder bed fusion, material extrusion, vat polymerization, material jetting, binder jetting, directed energy deposition, and sheet lamination. Segmentation on the basis of application includes prototyping, tooling, and functional part manufacturing. The verticals considered for segmentation of the market include aerospace and defense, engineering, healthcare, consumer products, automotive, jewelry, education, energy, architecture and construction, printed electronics, food and culinary, and others. The 3D printer market for desktop segment is expected to grow at a higher rate owing to reduction in printer prices along with technological advancements, leading to their growing deployment across the education, consumer products, food and culinary, and printed electronics verticals.

Plastic occupied the largest share of the 3D printing material market in 2016. However, the market of other materials is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, driven by the increasing demand for biomaterials used in the healthcare industry and certain specialized materials (such as laywood, wax, paper) in emerging applications.

The markets for the emerging verticals such as food and culinary, printed electronics, and education are expected to grow at the significant CAGR during the near future. The education industry is a highly attractive area for the 3D printing markets in North America and Europe. The industry is adopting 3D printing technologies to bring about awareness about this technology among students globally.

In 2016, North America led the 3D printing market in terms of market share, followed by Europe and Asia Pacific. The US held the largest share of the North American 3D printing market, followed by Canada and Mexico.
