Industry Insights
Minimum wastage of raw material in 3D printing technology is a factor driving the 3D printing market.
3D printing technology enables the physical production of object which was earlier manufactured by
traditional method 3D printing technology is emerged as a process of prototyping the object to make
actual usable parts and products. It is a process of layering of raw material instead of cutting and drilling.
3D printing technology is advantageous over traditional mass manufacturing of identical objects in terms
of its lower cost. Though the created products from 3D printing are prototypes, the producers also use
this technology in low-volume manufacturing. The major advantage of 3D technology is to obtain a
product which is not easily manufactured otherwise.

3D printing enables the creation of iterative products and that causes the decrement in time taken to
reach the market. Growing number of new product developments and R&D activities are expected to
drive the 3D printing market over forecast period. Increasing use of 3D printing in end-use industries
such as healthcare and automotive industry, the development of different designs & patterns and ease
of production are expected to drive the market in the coming years.
The traditional manufacturing method results in more lead time which is expected to challenge the 3D
printing market. Lack of technological ability to use the technology effectively is anticipated as the
barrier to the 3D printing market. The technology demands for easier accessibility and training practise
which is necessary to avail more advantages and to make efficient use of technology. This factor has
projected as a challenge to the growth of the market over the forecast period.
Application Insights
Key application segments for 3D printing includes automotive, aerospace, consumer products and
medical applications. Automotive segment uses 3D printing for tooling and low-volume end-use parts in
house and prototype buildings. Healthcare is the prominent application sector. Hearing ad shells,
prosthetics, dental objects made from plastic or pliable materials, strong& flexible new knee joints
mimicking bone made by nylon and human tissues are some of the examples of 3D printing products.
Aerospace segment uses specific patented FDM technology for prototyping, part manufacturing, and
tooling.

Building process of prototypes of parts used in commercial rockets and planes uses 3D printing
technology which is a factor leading towards the market growth. Consumer goods industry is a major
application segment of 3D printing technology due to the increasing demand for new designs and
patternsin consumer goods. Mechanical engineers, industrial designers, graphic artists and packaging
designers use prototypes designed with the help of 3D printing to understand product’s aesthetic and its
functional appeal which is going to impact the market growth positively over the forecast period.
Raw material Insights
Plastic, wax, metal, ceramics and polymers are used to build various objects with 3D printing technology.
Polymer is the key raw material used in 3D printing and it is expected to capture higher share of 3D
printing market. Printers associated with other materials are more expensive than the printers
associated with polymers and thermoplastics. Hence polymers are expected to dominate the 3D printing

market over the forecast period. Furthermore, plastic products which need customization can drive the
growth of polymer 3D printing. However, manufacturers are shifting on using metals as a raw material.
Metal is used in dental industry, implants, aerospace and others. Metals such as chromium, titanium,
aluminium and cobalt are used for manufacturing implants. Growing demand for aerospace, automotive
and electronics consumer goods are expected to increase the demand for metal 3D printing.
Regional Insights
North America is the largest regional market of 3D printing, due to the existence of major players of 3D
printing technology in this region. Stratasys and 3D Systems are the major players in North America.3D
printing market. These companies are expected to grow gradually in Europe over the forecast period
owing to the increasing awareness about 3D printing technology. In Asia Pacific, Japan is the largest
regional market which is going to witness significant growth in coming years due to the increasing
demand of consumer goods as well as existing favourable aspects for manufacturing and sales of the 3D
printers. Chinese government is expected to focus on to create high value finished products which can
lead to the growth of the 3D printing market in near future.
Competitive Insights
Stratasys In., 3D Systems Corporation, Arcam AB, CRP Group, Envisiontec GMBH, Royal Dsm N.V.,
Arkema S.A., LPW Technology Ltd., EOS GMBH Electro Optical Systems, Oxford Performance Materials,
Exone GMBH, Hoganas AB, Voxeljet AG and Materialise NV are some key players in 3D printing market.
Increasing competition between players may reduce the cost of 3D printing. Copyrights, patents and
trademarks may create the barrier for players in coming years.
