PLA type segment is expected to grow with second highest CAGR in 3D printing plastics market during the forecasted period.

The 3D printing plastics market is segmented based on the types into photopolymer, ABS, polyamide, PLA, PETG, Others. Polylactic Acid (PLA) is a type of plastic commonly used in 3D printing. It is derived from natural products like sugar cane and corn starch, making it biodegradable and eco-friendly. PLA is available in both soft and hard forms, allowing for the creation of a wide range of products. It is known for its reliability, quality, and vibrant colors, and it is one of the most popular and affordable 3D printing materials. PLA is easy to work with, available in a variety of colors, and can be used as either a resin or filament. The photopolymer segment dominated the overall 3D printing plastics market in 2022, owing to its exceptional properties and wide acceptance in end-use industries such as aerospace & defense, automotive industry.

Liquid form to be the second fastest-growing segment in the global 3D printing plastics market in terms of value and volume

The liquid segment is projected to register the second-highest CAGR, both terms of value and volume, during a forecast period. The increasing demand for 3D printing materials and plastics in the powder form is due to the rise in demand from the aerospace & defense, automotive, and healthcare industries.

Tooling application is expected to grow with the second highest CAGR, both in terms of value and volume during the forecast period

The tooling segment is expected to be the second fastest-growing application of the global 3D printing plastics market. Tooling applications in 3D printing plastics involve the use of 3D printed rapid tooling to support traditional manufacturing processes such as injection molding, vacuum forming, or silicone molding. This allows for the production of limited silicones and composites, with a flexible, agile, scalable, and cost-efficient tooling process. 3D printed tools can support the low volume fabrication of parts in various materials, including plastics, and enable the production of thermoplastics parts cost-effectively in-house.

Healthcare to be the second fastest-growing end-use industry in the global 3D printing plastics market in terms of value and volume

3D printing plastics in the healthcare industry has gained significant attention due to its potential for creating customized, high-quality medical devices. 3D printing allows for the creation of customized prosthetic limbs that can be tailored to the specific needs of individual patients. This can improve the comfort and functionality of the prosthetics, leading to better patient outcomes. 3D printing used to create biocompatible implants, such as dental implants or orthopedic implants, that can be customized to fit the specific needs of individual patients. This can improve the success rate of the implants and reduce the risk of complications. The use of 3D printing in the healthcare industry has the potential to revolutionize the way medical devices are designed, manufactured, and delivered. It offers a cost-effective, efficient, and customizable solution for creating high-quality medical devices that can improve patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs.
