The 3D printing market is expected to reach USD 30.19 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 28.5% between 2016 and 2022. The market has been segmented on the basis of printer, material type, material form, process, technology, software, service, application, vertical, and geography. Industrial 3D printers are expected to account for the largest share of the 3D printing market during the forecast period due to the increase in accuracy per inch of part dimension, faster printing speed, and introduction of new materials. These factors have led to the adoption of the industrial 3D printers in various industries such as aerospace & defense, automotive, energy, engineering, and healthcare among others. In addition, 3D printing is now used to manufacture complex components, prototypes (rapid prototyping), and small-series components. Streamlining of production workflow through automated production tools, powder handling and recycling functions, and mobile production controls is fueling the demand for industrial printers. The base year considered for this report is 2015 and the forecast period is from 2016 to 2022.

This research study involves the extensive usage of secondary sources to identify and collect information useful for this technical, market-oriented, and commercial study of the 3D printing market. The primary sources are mainly several industry experts from core and related industries and preferred suppliers, manufacturers, distributors, service providers, reimbursement providers, technology developers, alliances, and standard and certification organizations related to all the segments of this industry’s value chain. In-depth interviews have been conducted with various primary respondents, including key industry participants, subject matter experts (SMEs), C-level executives of key market players, and industry consultants among other experts to obtain and verify critical qualitative and quantitative information as well as to assess future prospects.

The global 3D printing market is expected to grow from USD 4.98 Billion in 2015 to USD 30.19 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 28.5% between 2016 and 2022. The market is expected to be driven by factors such as ease of developing customized products, benefits of 3D printing, and government investments in 3D printing projects.

The market for desktop 3D printers is expected to grow at a high rate during the forecast period due to the declining prices of printers as well as technological advancements pertaining to printers. Introduction of multijet printers allows more than one material and color to be used at time and availability of open platform to design objects such as Photoshop by Adobe and Spark by Autodesk are other major reasons increasing the demand of desktop 3D printers for personal use.

Aerospace & defense, healthcare, industrial, and consumer products comprised the major industries that accounted for the major share of the 3D printing market in 2015. However, the market for the education, printed electronics, energy, and jewelry industries is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period.

In the powder bed fusion 3D printing process, technologies such as direct metal laser sintering (DMLS), electron beam melting (EBM), selective heat sintering (SHS), selective laser melting (SLM), and selective laser sintering (SLS) are most commonly used for the development of functional parts in the aerospace, automotive, healthcare, and engineering industries. The market for this process is expected to grow at a significant rate and hold the largest share of the 3D printing market, among other 3D printing processes, during the forecast period. The ability to produce complex geometries, high-feature resolution, good strength, and decent surface finish are the major drivers for the powder bed fusion process. The lead time required to develop a product using this process is also less as compared to other processes. The market for directed energy deposition is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2012. Higher build rate, large build envelope, ability to repair and add to existing parts, and the ability to use different material types and colors during developing process are the major drivers for the direct energy deposition 3D printing process.

North America dominated the 3D printing market in 2015. 3D printing is used in the major industrial manufacturing, aerospace & defense, and healthcare companies located in the U.S., which is driving the market in this region. GE uses laser-powered 3D printers to make parts and products for aircraft. Continuous technological advancements and financial support from the government are also propelling the growth of the North American 3D printing market. However, the market in APAC is expected to grow at a faster rate between 2016 and 2022. Government initiatives, funding in R&D, and extensive industrial base are the major factors that make APAC a dynamic region for 3D printing, with Japan and China being the major contributors.

3D Printing Market

3D printing provides tremendous opportunities and the market has been growing rapidly. However, it also faces a few challenges pertaining to technical capabilities of additive manufacturing, skilled workforce, supporting increasing production processes, and others.

Some of the major companies, operating in the 3D printing market, included in the report are 3D Systems Corporation (U.S.), Stratesys Ltd. (U.S.), ExOne (U.S.), voxeljet AG (Germany), Arcam AB (Sweden), SLM Solutions GmbH (Germany), EOS GmbH (Germany), EnvisionTEC GmbH (Germany), Materialise NV (Netherlands), Concept Laser GmbH (GmbH), Autodesk, Inc. (U.S.), and Koninklijke DSM N.V. (Netherlands) among others.

Stratasys Ltd., one of the leading global providers of 3D printing solutions (including prototyping, tooling, and manufacturing), accounted for the largest share of the 3D printing market in 2015. The company develops, manufactures, and sells materials for use with printing systems and provides related services. The company focuses on expanding its proprietary 3D printing technology offerings to new vertical applications, leveraging its global reach to expand the customer base and further penetrate existing customers, maintaining and extending its technology lead, and growing through strategic acquisitions. In February 2016, Stratasys announced a sales partnership program with its subsidiary, MakerBot Industries, LLC (U.S.) to extend the cross-selling of its products and open the door for sales partners to offer MakerBot and Stratasys 3D printers.
