Microscale 3D Printing Market - Global Industry
Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis,
Owing to extensive application capability, the technology is expected to disrupt
almost all material manufacturing application segments, however, is limited mostly to
prototyping owing to significant challenges in handling expertise. Moreover, this
technology is majorly deployed by science and research institutes that include ETH
Zurich, Switzerland; Stanford, MIT, Cambridge; and National University, Singapore.
It is estimated that microscale 3-D printing market will garner high adoption,
however, will require at least over a decade to become mainstream. According to
Coherent Market Insights Analysis, technology adoption should be at least 20% in
order to become mainstream.

Conventional three dimensional printing and manufacturing has garnered significant
traction in all major industrial applications. However, increasing requirement for
precision and for processes that require precision at meso, micro, and nanometer
scales has led to the development of microscale 3-D printing technology. This
technology finds application primarily in manufacturing and fabrication industries as
well as in research and scientific community.
Microscale 3-D printing technology can be utilized for the processing of
metals, alloys, glass, photosensitive resins, and others, including different
forms of plastics
Over the last few years, the use of microscale 3-D printing technology was limited to
the making of complex shapes with the use of thermoplastics. Manufacturers are
increasingly making efforts for the utilization of these techniques for varied materials
that include semiconductors, living cells, and mixing and matching inks with
increased accuracy. For instance, in May 2013, Princeton University scientists
created bionic ear utilizing electronic and biological materials that could track radio
frequencies. In another instance, in January 2014, scientists at Cambridge
successfully completed the printing of eye cells that could be helpful in potential
treatment for sight loss.
Slow speeds in relation to the conventional methods of manufacturing and
high initial capital are expected to hamper the overall industry growth
For instance, conventional injection molding can be used to produce thousands of
objects within an hour. However, the additive manufacturing technology utilizes layer
by layer integration of materials, which limits its application for mass production.
Additionally, the initial cost of the technology for high precision applications, lack of
skilled workforce, and additional expenses on training and expertise will hinder the
adoption rate of the technology.
Participants are increasingly making efforts to reduce manufacturing time and
increase its application. For instance, Autodesk, a software company has integrated
artificial intelligence to create complex design possibilities based on exact weight
and strength, most of which can only be created using additive manufacturing.
The U.S., followed by Europe, is expected to be a major region that will witness high
adoption rate of the technology, primarily owing to the significant efforts and high
inclination of the industry participants toward it. Moreover, advanced manufacturing
facilities that include automotive, aerospace, and other industrial applications that
are expected to witness significant adoption rate are also present in these regions.
Some of the key players in the microscale 3-D printing market include Desktop
Metal, Formlabs, HP, 3D Hubs, WASP, GE Additive, Aleph Objects (Lulzbot), Apis
Cor, 3D-Fuel (3DomFuel), Doob Group, E3D, Nano Dimension, Open Bionics,
Zortrax, Nanoscribe GmbH, Monoprice, Stratasys, 3D Systems, Divergent3D, and
Optomec. Innovation and advanced product development are expected to be the
prominent strategic plans of the players to gain strong foothold in the industry. For
instance, in 2016, Nanoscribe GmbH introduced its advanced Photonic Professional
GT that is featured with ultra-high resolution three dimensional printing capability.
