3d Printing Materials Plays Vital Role in Printing Objects
3DP materials are usually classified according to the material used, such as plastics, metals, ceramics, and others. All these 3DP materials have their individual uses, performance, capability, and cost. 3DP materials are highly flexible and strong materials that come with unlimited printing capabilities that range from toys to metal guns, spare parts to automobiles, electronics to satellites, and dental crowns to the human heart.
3DP materials are ideal to manufacture innovative objects with the use of 3D printers. The 3DP materials market is a flourishing market with growing industrial demand in the aerospace and automotive industries. Aerospace, defense, medical, dental, and automotive are the major applicants of 3DP materials as they can manufacture complex designs, easily. The 3DP material revolution helps access mass customization. For example, in the bottle industry, thousands of bottles can be printed with the same setup equipment within a short span of time. With the latest investments and support from regional governments, the demand for 3DP materials is about to grow aggressively, beyond expectations.
Quality control is the prime factor in 3DP materials. Pre material testing takes place at manufacturing laboratories before its use at the end-user location. Choosing the suitable 3DP material is the most important task for any application and the supplier should be specialized while choosing the equipment and its operation as per the end-user.
3D Printing Materials Market by Plastics (ABS, PLA, Nylon & Others), By Metals (Steel, Titanium, Gold & Others), by Ceramics (Silica, Glass & Others), by Others (Laywood & Others), by Forms & by End-User Industries - Global Trends & Forecasts to 2018
