3D Printing & Rapid Prototyping Services in the US - Industry Market Research Report

3D Printing & Rapid Prototyping Services

The 3D Printing and Rapid Prototyping Services industry has grown quickly in recent years, driven by rapid technological developments, lower costs and new applications for 3D printing technology. While the falling price of 3D printing machines encouraged many companies to purchase their own machines and bypass industry services, demand has nonetheless flourished. As a result, industry revenue has increased over the five years to 2018. Over the five years to 2023, both industry demand and revenue are forecast to surge forward as 3D printing and rapid prototyping explode in popularity and accessibility, especially in consumer markets. Rising demand will be aided by the falling price of 3D printers, making industry services more cost-effective.

Companies in this industry offer 3D printing and rapid prototyping, which is the automatic construction of physical objects using additive manufacturing technology. Techniques include melting or softening material to produce layers, laying liquid material thermosets that are cured, cutting thin layers to shape and joining them together. This industry does not include the sale of 3D printers and supplies.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
