The automotive 3D printing market is projected to grow from USD 2.9 billion in 2022 to USD 7.9 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 21.7%. The increase in demand to reduce vehicle weight, production cost, and development time and increasing initiatives & investments by major OEMs are the major factors driving the growth of the automotive 3D printing market.
OEMs are always looking forward to new ways to reduce the weight of vehicles, which will, in turn, increase the fuel efficiency of vehicles, making them more environment friendly. The automobile industry uses the 3D printing, significantly. The automotive parts designs are optimized and designed in a way that the weight of these parts is reduced as compared to traditional methods of design. The benefits of light-weighting can be lower material consumption and costs, potential to optimize part structure for higher performance, environment-friendly and better reputation among consumers. Light-weighting can be an expensive and time-consuming process with traditional manufacturing methods. Hence, OEMs are increasingly turning to additive manufacturing to design lighter weight automotive parts.
