3D Printing Market Dynamics

Driver: Government investments in 3D printing projects

Globally, governments are undertaking initiatives and providing funding to educational institutions, research centers, and research and technology organizations to further explore the opportunities provided by 3D printing technology and encourage its development. Countries such as the US, the UK, and Canada have implemented national programs for promoting university-level 3D printing research, which is driving technology advancement and the establishment of start-ups. The emergence of new applications for 3D printing has attracted industrialists and governments across the world toward the technology.

Restraint:  Lack of standard process control

The consistency of each 3D printing process varies due to the uncontrolled process variables and material differences based on machine and manufacturer. Currently, very few monitoring techniques meet specific criteria by rectifying the process inconsistencies of 3D printing. The capacity to develop detailed and accurate mathematical models through 3D printing is difficult, especially in complex and sophisticated applications (such as aerospace, military/defense, and healthcare) due to the limited data available for process control. The limitations in the planning phase, process control, and pre- and post-production procedures may lead to manufacturing failure and erroneous outputs. Post-processing steps in the removal of built products play a major role in meeting the product specifications. These elements of process control extend the manufacturing process and increase the possibility of process variance along with the addition of extra cost, which are major issues with many machines and processes. Hence, the standardization of 3D printing machines (printers), technologies, materials, and related software becomes very important.

Opportunity: Potential to improve manufacturing processes and enhance supply chain management

 From its initial applications in designing and prototyping, 3D printing is now shifting toward the manufacturing of functional parts. 3D printing can help overcome various challenges (such as higher tooling costs) associated with traditional manufacturing processes employed for rapid prototyping and short production runs, among others, as 3D printing eliminates the tooling requirement, unlike the traditional manufacturing process. Although traditional manufacturing would cost less per unit produced, it poses a high initial cost in the form of tooling, leading to more expensive low-volume manufacturing. The 3D printing technology also helps reduce the waste produced during the manufacturing process by building parts layer-on-layer. Mass customization is another area where 3D printing has an advantage over conventional manufacturing, particularly for short production runs.

It is still uncertain what parts would be printable in the future using 3D printing, whose production might not be feasible with the conventional manufacturing methods. Despite this uncertainty, 3D printing can upgrade the supply chain management that may affect the logistics link between manufacturers and customers in certain types of products or parts. The 3D printing market has also been experiencing advancements in printers and printing technologies, improvement in printing materials, and development in the skill set of the associated workforce.

Challenge: Ensuring product quality

3D printing offers high customized designs. However, material requirements for AM of functional products are limited, which restrains the potential opportunities of AM to produce highly customized products. The 3D printing industry faces the challenge of ensuring the quality of end products, particularly when repeatedly produced on the same printing machine or different machines. The quality of products, especially in terms of exactness and performance, depends on several factors, such as materials, printing technology, and the environment in the printer, particularly temperature and pressure; any changes in these would affect the quality of the end product. However, technological advancements in the existing 3D printing technology and the introduction of new materials as per unique application needs [such as ONYX by Marforged (US) and WoodFill by ColorFabb (Netherlands)] are expected to overcome this challenge associated with product quality in the nearest future.

The Services segment is anticipated grow at highest rate

 3D printing service sector is garnering significant traction compared to the sale of printers and materials. The market for 3D printing or AM has been growing rapidly with rapid progress in the industries, such as healthcare (including medical, orthopedic, and dentistry), aerospace, and automotive, as these industries were the early adopters of the technology. However, with the advancement in printing technology and materials, the 3D printing service sector is garnering significant traction as a source of profit generation compared to the sales of printers and materials. As the 3D printing technology facilitates the manufacturing of products with complex geometries and offers competitive pricing compared to traditional manufacturing methods, several companies across several industries are expected to outsource everything, from design to production of customized products, to sustain in the highly competitive markets. As a result, the market for 3D printing services is expected to witness the highest growth rate in the nearest future.

Healthcare vertical is expected towitnessthe second highest growth rate during the forecast period

Several medical products such as surgical equipment, prosthetics, implants, and tissue engineering products are manufactured through 3D printing technologies. Apart from these, 3D printing is also used in orthopedic, dental, and craniomaxillofacial applications in the field of medicine. New and improved technologies, financial support from the governments, and rapid product development at low costs are the major drivers that affect the market

North Americato create high market opportunity inthe 3D Printing marketduring forecast period

Many industries opt for 3D printing to develop innovative products with different combinations of materials, shapes, and structures; to bring down the production cost for small-batch manufacturing; achieve quick production; and to reduce wastage of material. The 3D printing market in North America is mainly driven by the education sector. The growing rate of deployment and diffusion across verticals, such as aerospace & defense, healthcare, and consumer products; strong support from regional governments; and presence of key manufacturers are further expected to be the key driving factors for the growth of the North American 3D printing market.

The study involved four major activities in estimating the current size of the global 3D printing market. Exhaustive secondary research has been done to collect information about the market, the peer market, and the parent market. Validating findings, assumptions, and sizing with industry experts across the value chain through primary research has been the next step. Both top-down and bottom-up approaches have been employed to estimate the complete market size. After that, market breakdown and data triangulation methods have been used to estimate the market size of segments and subsegments.

Secondary Research

Secondary sources include company websites, magazines, industry news, associations, and databases (OneSource, Factiva, and Bloomberg). The secondary sources used for this research study include government sources, corporate filings (such as annual reports, investor presentations, and financial statements), and trade, articles, white papers, industry news, business, and professional associations. The secondary data have been collected and analyzed to arrive at the overall market size, which has been further validated through primary research.

Primary Research

Extensive primary research has been conducted after understanding and analyzing the 3D printing market scenario through secondary research. Several primary interviews have been conducted with key opinion leaders from both demand- and supply-side vendors across four major regions—North America, Europe, APAC, and RoW. Approximately 30% of the primary interviews have been conducted with the demand side and 70% with the supply side. These primary data have been collected mainly through telephonic interviews, which consist of 80% of the overall primary interviews; also, questionnaires and emails were used to collect the data.

After interacting with industry experts, brief sessions were conducted with highly experienced independent consultants to reinforce the findings from our primaries. This, along with the in-house subject matter experts’ opinions, has led us to the findings as described in the remainder of this report.
