The Market has been evolving as a technique to create 3D models and prototypes, in many industries, namely, automotive, aerospace, healthcare, and consumer products- in order to investigate the possibility of completing a project in lesser time and with few resources. However, in the last two decades, 3D printing has made a radical shift from rapid prototyping to rapid manufacturing”, mainly, because of its advantages over traditional manufacturing practices such as injection molding, CNC machining, and vacuum casting. These advantages include innovative designing, high adaptability levels, less time to market, and less tooling requirements. 3D printing manufacturing is also found to be quicker and less expensive. The ability of 3D printing to print almost any geometry with a variety of materials makes this technology a preferred choice, especially, in those markets which are characterized by high individualization, low volume, and high value; such as aerospace and healthcare. The major driving factors that support the exponential growth of the market include - the development of new and improved technologies, financial support from governments, large application areas, rapid product development at a low cost, and ease in development of custom products.

In this report, the global market is segmented on the basis of technology, material, application, and geography. The technology segment comprises of Stereo lithography (SLA), Laser Sintering, Electron Beam Melting (EBM), Fused Disposition Modeling (FDM), Laminated Object manufacturing (LOM), Three Dimensional Inkjet printing (3DP), and other proprietary technologies. The global market by material comprises polymers, metals/alloys, and others (ceramics, sand, and paper). The application segment includes aerospace industry, automotive consumer products, healthcare, government and defense, industrial/business machines, education & research, and others (arts, architecture). Health care and aerospace are the two fastest growing application areas for this market. The stringent requirements such as light weight and accurate & precise design requirements for airplanes parts are the major driving factors behind the growth of 3D printing in the aerospace industry, over traditional manufacturing methods. However, the increasing medical procedures’ volumes due to the growing population, rising income levels, low labor costs, and increasing health awareness are responsible for the tremendous growth of 3D printing in healthcare sector, as well.

The market is also categorized into four major geographic regions, namely Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World. Developing economies such as China and India provide tremendous growth opportunities for the market manufacturing technologies, majorly, due to the rise in lifestyle and general income levels. For instance, China is aggressively taking initiatives such as huge investment and government funding in R&D, to promote 3D printing technology as a manufacturing technique.

3D printing technology is a technique to create 3D objects by placing layer over layer with the help of an additive material and a digital file (CAD). Initially, these models were limited to prototyping purpose but recently 3D printing technology has made a radical shift towards mainstream product manufacturing in industries ranging from aerospace to consumer products. Stereo Lithography (SLA) is the most primitive method for creating prototypes in order to find the possibility of a design before investing in its manufacturing. Since then, many technologies have evolved; such as Laser Sintering (LS), Electron Beam Melting (EBM), Fused Disposition Modeling (FDM), Laminated Object manufacturing (LOM), and others. These continuous technological developments have helped 3D printing technology to move towards mainstream industrial manufacturing. Moreover, the benefits provided by this techniques with regards to the traditional manufacturing methods (injection molding, CNC machining, vacuum casting) have made it a more favorable, quicker, and less expensive option for manufacturers, worldwide. The Market has a huge growth potential, especially, in markets that are characterized by low volume, complex architecture and highly individualized applications.

The main driving factors responsible for the explosive growth of the market include new and improved technologies, variety of materials ranging from polymers to living tissue, supportive regulations, government funding, and huge untapped market. Among all the application sectors, automotive industry, consumer products, aerospace, and healthcare have contributed the largest market share. Moreover, aerospace and healthcare are estimated to grow exponentially in the coming future.

In geographical analysis of the market with regards to the 3D printers, materials and related services-the Americas have been accounting for the largest market share followed by Europe. However, Europe and APAC are expected to be the fastest growing market in the coming future. Supportive government policies, increased financial investments by governments, and huge R&D activities are the major reasons behind this tremendous growth. Some of the major players in the this market include 3D Systems (U.S.), Stratasys (U.S.), ExOne (U.S.), Arcam (Sweden),Optomec (U.S.), EnvisionTEC (Germany), EOS (Germany), Layerwise (Belgium), microTEC (Germany), and Materialise (Belgium), among others.
