3D printing is defined as the process of making objects from 3D model data by using additive materials.  It also represents all additive processes, technologies, systems, and applications. It can be used to manufacture products of any geometrical shape with a wide choice on the material to be used. Hence, it now viewed as the solution for production with lesser resources and faster output.

3D printing has several advantages like lower resource requirement, faster production cycle, flexible design, and substantial savings on tooling over traditional manufacturing technologies such as injection molding, Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining, and vacuum casting. This is very conducive in the manufacturing of low-volume customized products of high value.

This report describes the market trends, drivers, and challenges for the 3D printing market and forecasts the market from 2014 to 2020 on the basis of technology, material, application, and geography. The market by geography is segmented into the Americas, Europe, APAC, and RoW (Rest of the World).

In the 3D printing market by technology, stereolithography accounts for the largest percentage share, followed by poly-jet technology, whereas consumer products represent the major application market followed by the automotive industry. The Americas has the highest share among all geographical regions, whereas in the materials market, plastics contribute to the largest share.
