3D Printing Materials Market by Type (Plastic, Metal, Ceramic), End-Use industry (Automotive, Healthcare, Aerospace & Defense, Consumer Goods, Construction), Form (Powder, Filament, Liquid), Technology, Application, and Region - Global Forecast to 2025
The 3D printing materials market is projected to register a CAGR of 23.5%, in terms of value, between 2020 and 2025.
The global 3D printing materials market size is estimated to grow from USD 1.6 billion in 2020 to USD 4.5 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 23.5% between 2020 and 2025. 3D printing materials are used in different industries such as automotive, aerospace & defense, and healthcare. However, global pandemic disease COVID-19 has forced the automotive and aircraft manufacturers to shut down their operations, which is expected to slow down the growth for 3D printing materials in 2020
Metal 3D printing materials are projected to register a higher CAGR, in terms of value and volume, between 2020 and 2025.’
Metals materials are highly useful in manufacturing components for the automotive and aerospace & defense industries. 3D printing metal materials have been further segmented into titanium, aluminum, nickel, stainless steel, and others (such as cobalt chrome, copper, silver, gold, and bronze). 3D printing metal materials offer various characteristics, such as lightweight, excellent temperature resistance, and heat resistance. Metals are the fastest-growing type of 3D printing material owing to high demand from the healthcare, automotive, and aerospace & defense industries. Metals are available in different g color grades and majorly consumed in the powder form. Moreover, precious metals, such as gold and silver, usually are preferred for manufacturing jewelry.
The market in the healthcare end-use industry is expected to register the highest CAGR between 2020 and 2025.
The healthcare industry is lucrative for 3D printing metals. 3D printing materials are used in making various medical implants, prosthetics, and to produce various other organs using plastic and metal materials. Though the COVID-19 pandemic has relatively slowed down the growth for 3D printing materials in 2020, additive manufacturing is proving its mettle in this tragic scenario as well. Various companies are producing face shields and N95 masks using 3D printing to prevent further spread of novel coronavirus.
The 3D printing materials market in APAC is projected to register the highest CAGR, in terms of value and volume, between 2019 and 2024.
APAC is the fastest-growing market and third major consumer of 3D printing materials, globally, owing to the industrial development and improving economic conditions. This region constitutes approximately 60% of the world’s population, resulting in the growth of various industries, such as automotive, consumer goods, and construction. China, Japan, South Korea, and India are the major countries involved in 3D printing activities in APAC. Due to COVID-19, numerous aircraft manufacturers and automotive companies have halted their production sites across various countries that has led to reduced demand for 3D printing materials in Asian countries. The recovery in the end-use industries with restoration in the supply chain would drive the 3D printing materials demand during the forecast period
