Report Code: SE 2936 Feb, 2019, by marketsandmarkets.com

The global 3D printing market size is estimated to be USD 9.9 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach USD 34.8 billion by 2024. Factors such as ease in development of customized products, reduction in manufacturing cost and process downtime, government investments in 3D printing projects, and development of new industrial-grade 3D printing materials are driving the growth of the 3D printing industry. Currently, the trend in the 3D printing applications is shifting from prototyping to functional part manufacturing in various verticals, such as automotive, medical, aerospace, and consumer goods.

3D Printing Market

Direct Metal Laser Sintering To Account For The Largest 3D Printing Market Share From 2018 To 2024

The 3D printers available in the market are based on different technologies such as stereolithography (SLA), fused deposition modeling (FDM), selective laser sintering (SLS), direct metal laser sintering (DMLS), polyjet/multijet printing (MJP), inkjet printing, electron beam melting (EBM), laser metal deposition (LMD), laminated object manufacturing (LOM), and digital light processing (DLP). DMLS, SLS, and FDM are the most widely used 3D printing technologies.

3D Printing Market

DMLS accounted for the largest share of the 3D printing market in 2017. The DMLS technology is used in applications such as tooling and manufacturing of fixtures and jigs. The technology enables the creation of high-quality metal parts as it facilitates the construction of complex geometrics (having sizes as small as up to 20 µm) of metals, which makes it ideal for the manufacturing industry. DMLS is used to develop complex structures in industries such as aerospace and automotive for tooling and machinery parts. The detailed resolution, cost-efficient production, and quick and easy handling are the major drivers for the growth of the market for the 3D printing based on DMLS technology.

The Prototyping Application Is Expected To Hold The Largest 3D Printing Market Share Through 2025

The prototyping application held the largest 3D printing market share in 2017, and the trend is expected to be the same during the forecast period. The market for the prototyping application is driven by the steady demand for these applications in several industries.

3D Printing Market

3D printing or AM helps produce prototypes and models from 3D computer-aided design (CAD). This helps several companies to reduce wastage during prototype transitions in traditional manufacturing and also helps them to bring down their operational costs. 3D printing also enables the quick production of cost-efficient prototypes based on the customers’ requirements regarding the geometry of the structure, accuracy, and well-defined smoothness of the products used in any industry.

North America to Hold The Largest Share Throughout the Forecast Period

The 3D printing market based on region has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), and Rest of the World (RoW). North America is expected to hold the largest share of the 3D printing industry, while the market in APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The expiry of 3D printing technology patents of Stratasys (US) and 3D Systems (US) for their fused deposition modelling (FDM) and stereolithography (SLA) technologies, respectively, has opened several opportunities for emerging companies, as new entrants can easily get access to AM technology and make modifications based on their unique requirements. The 3D printing market is mainly driven by the extensive research and development activities directed toward the introduction of new and improved technologies as well as fresh print materials.

3D Printing Market

The US held the largest share of the 3D printing market in North America in 2017. Continuous investments in research and development have broadened the applications of 3D printing in the academics and other industries, such as aerospace & defense, automotive, healthcare, industrial, consumer products, jewelry, and energy, where 3D printing is used for developing prototypes and manufacturing end products.

Key Market Players

The key players in the global 3D printing market include Stratasys (US), 3D Systems (US), EOS GmbH(Germany), GE Additive (US), and Materialise (Belgium), among others. Stratasys and 3D Systems dominated the 3D printing industry, in terms of revenues. These two players have been relying on their strong research and development (R&D) capabilities, diversified product portfolio, global reach, strategic partnerships, and mergers and acquisitions to hold a large share of the 3D printing market. The market also has many small players that together hold the remaining share.
