3D Printing Market Analysis: Drivers and Constraints

Drivers

Rising Government Investments

3D printing technology is opening the doors for digital reimagining for the worldwide industry, economically and scientifically. For countries to comprehend the significant value of 3D printing in the digitized ecosystem, large-scale government participation is a must. Policymakers and private companies across the globe are making huge investments to set up a sustainable 3D printing environment. 

Increasing Adoption of 3D Printed Components

Industrial 3D printing makes it simpler for product engineers and designers to develop faster, cheaper, and efficient articulate components. Aerospace, automotive, and defense industries are considerably banking on 3D printing technology to bolster the production process and curb expenses. In the defense and automotive industries, 3D printing is utilized to produce lightweight electronic parts. Further, the healthcare industry is leveraging technology to develop prosthetics, tissues, and medical implants. 

Constraints

High Initial Investments

The major factor hampering the growth of the 3D printing services market is the high initial investments related to it. Developing lightweight and articulate components with industrial 3D printing requires software, hardware, and materials. As such, the costs relevant to developing the necessary parts increase.

3DP Major Technology Overview

 FDM

  • Use of a thin, plastic-based filament, which is heated and extruded through a print head.
  • FDM is also known as material extrusion or FFF or PJP.
  • It is the least expensive technology.

SLA

  • Building object layers from a liquid polymer resin using ultraviolet light to cure or harden the material.
  • SLA is also known as vat polymerization, vat photopolymerization.
  • It was invented first.

SLS

  •  Uses a laser to form three-dimensional shapes from a powder material (including metal, ceramic, and plastic).
  •  LS is also known as powder bed fusion and EBM.
  • It is the most expensive technology.

Supply Market Overview

The supply market in the 3DP industry is of four types:

  • 3D printer manufacturers: Company, which supplies 3D printers and associated maintenance services. These companies do not offer outsourcing printing services
  • 3D manufacturing systems and service providers: These companies offer printing services along with the 3D systems.
  • Service providers: These suppliers offer only printing services, i.e., contract manufacturers.
  • CAD, 3D modeling, and design platforms providers: These companies offer tools, software packages, which help in creating, editing, and sharing CAD files.
