3D Printing Materials Market

General Electric (US), EOS GmbH (Germany) and Materialise (Belgium) are Leading Players in the 3D Printing Materials Market

According to the US Food and Drug Administration – the process of producing three-dimensional objects by layering raw materials is known as 3D Printing. Each new layer is added to the one before it until the object is complete. Objects are created using a digital 3D file, such as a CAD drawing or a Magnetic Resonance Image (MRI).

The technology of printing a three-dimensional (3D) object from a digital file using materials such as plastic, metal, and ceramic is called 3D printing. The materials used are called 3D printing materials. Plastics, metals (including powders), resins, and ceramics are materials used in 3D printing. 3D printing materials are available in various shapes and sizes. Designers and engineers prefer to create functional prototypes using 3D printing materials with the same or similar material properties as the final product.
