Global 3D Printing Market in Education: Research Report 2015-2019

About 3D printing

3D printing, also known as AM, is the process of making a 3D model by laying down many successive layers of a 3D material. It helps in manufacturing customized products at a mass level without incurring extra costs and other environmental impacts. During the advent of this technology, these models were restricted to prototyping purposes, but in recent times 3D printing technology has made a paradigm shift toward conventional product manufacturing in industries extending from aerospace to consumer products.

Technavio's analysts forecast the global 3D printing market in education to grow at a CAGR of 48.33% over the period 2014-2019.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global 3D Printing in Education 2015-2019
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global 3D Printing in Education: 3D Systems, Envision, ExOne and Stratasys
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: 3T RPD, Autodesk, EOS, Materialise, Optomec and Voxeljet
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Vendors in this market are increasingly investing in R&D to provide better functionality and innovative products. These investments have enabled vendors to capture a significant market share and gain a competitive edge over other vendors in the market. Vendors such as 3D Systems, Arcam, and Stratasys have already invested heavily in R&D for the expansion of their product portfolio. This increased R&D spending by vendors is a trend that is expected to have a positive impact on the growth of the market during the forecast period.”
According to the report, post-recession, the economic scenario for manufacturing industries has improved, creating more job opportunities. This has resulted in a higher number of students graduating from STEM fields. In developed nations, apart from sophisticated R&D facilities in leading manufacturing companies, universities that have technical courses are implementing the latest teaching methods. This has facilitated the rising penetration of 3D printing in universities for graduate and postgraduate courses. 3D printing will also gradually eliminate the need for the dissection of bio-organisms in medical educational institutions. Necropsynth is the latest project being executed to determine the feasibility of 3D modeling to develop a synthetic prototype model of animals that can be used in medical and research laboratories.
Further, the report states that high cost of printers increases the number of students per machine and limits their understanding of concepts.
