3D Printing Powder Market by Type (Metal, Plastic, Ceramic), by Application (Aerospace & Defense, Automotive, Medical & Dental, Others), by Geography (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, RoW) - Global Forecast to 2020

3D Printing Powder Market by Type (Metal, Plastic, Ceramic), by Application (Aerospace & Defense, Automotive, Medical & Dental, Others), by Geography (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, RoW) - Global Forecast to 2020

The global 3D printing powder market is projected to reach USD 636.9 million by 2020, at a CAGR of 24.4% from 2015 to 2020. The increasing application of 3D printing in aerospace & defense industry, majorly in the manufacturing of aircraft engines and components as well as the expiry of various technology patents are the major factors that are expected to drive the growth of the 3D printing powder market.

Aerospace & defense segment is projected to contribute highest market share till 2020

The aerospace & defense application segment accounted for the largest share of the 3D printing powder. This technology has the ability to bring revolution in the manufacturing industry. 3D printing has also been successively used in bones and dental crowns, cars and buildings, and so on. Factors, such as rapid technological developments in 3D printing, along with the expiry of process patents for powder-based technology are expected to drive the global 3D printing powder market.

North America is expected to be a major market for 3D printing powder till 2020

North America is projected to be a major market for 3D printing powder in 2015. However, the 3D printing powder market is expected to penetrate emerging countries as well, where manufacturing industries are not well developed. The 3D printing powder market in RoW is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2015 and 2020, with knowledge transfer taking place between industrial and emerging countries. The growth of the 3D printing powder market in Asia-Pacific is expected to be driven by the increasing presence of manufacturers in this region.

Metal powders segment is projected to account for the highest consumption

The metal powders segment is projected to account for the highest consumption. Powder-based laser sintering technology is one of the affordable technologies, which uses metal powders to produce durable products. As many important patents related to this technology have expired in 2014, it is expected that the powder-based laser sintering technology will be now accessible to various number of manufacturers, thus fueling the demand for powder-based printers in the coming years. The reduction in technology cost is expected to lead to increasing demand from other applications.
