3D Printing Plastics Market: Introduction
3D printing also known as additive manufacturing is a process of producing three dimensional objects from a digital source file. Objects can be made using 3D printing plastics in the form of filament, powder or photopolymers. Based on the material form, the photopolymers market segment will account for the largest share in the global 3D printing plastics whereas powder segment is forecast to remain the most attractive segment during the long term forecast. Key application areas for 3D Printing Plastics are healthcare, consumer electronics, automotive, consumer goods & jewelry, aerospace & defense and others.
3D Printing Plastics Market: Market Dynamics
The key growth driving factors in the global 3D Printing Plastics market is their use in prototyping automotive and aircraft parts, and in the healthcare sector where 3D printing plastics can be used for making implants and Prosthetics. Lighter automotive are directed towards higher fuel efficiencies. Technologies resulting from the aerospace industry and racing cars has had a huge impact in the production of commercial and passenger vehicles. With exhausting fossil fuels, the shifting trend towards lighter automotive has been the key areas of focus of the research & development divisions across the stakeholder in automotive manufacturing. The use of 3D printing plastics in manufacturing not only reduces wastage of raw materials but also gives the design engineer the flexibility of developing making complex engineering parts. A number of small enterprises have been researching for making 3D printing a viable solution in industrial manufacturing. This rising expenditures, where the United States accounts for a larger market share followed by Europe and then emerging Asia, will further push the demand growth for 3D Printing Plastics. The global manufacturing sector has experienced an upward trend since its downfall during the economic crisis during 2008-2009. Since then the sector has witnessed new regulations, technologies, and safety standards. Investments towards development of 3D printing plastics has been on a rise. Key stakeholders are developing materials and technologies to further leverage the advantages of 3D printing. Factors such as lack of consumer friendly 3D printing plastics printers and market acceptance in developing countries are some of the factors impacting the demand in of 3D printing plastics.
