    Global Market Outlook on 3D Printing Services

    • Increasing investment in advanced manufacturing technologies, growing automotive industry, presence of major players, and a stable economy are propelling the additive manufacturing market revenue in North America.
    • The highest demand in Europe comes from small and medium-sized businesses (SMB) that require high-speed, reliable, and low-cost prototypes.
    • Strong demand for 3D printing hardware in China, the government promotion of new-age technologies in manufacturing, and rising demand for customized products are key driving factors in Asia.
    • The significant reduction in manufacturing cost will help push the 3D printing market even further, thereby allowing 3D printing services to take place on a global scale.

    3D Printing Market Analysis: Drivers and Constraints


    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. 


    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


    • 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.


    • 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.


    •  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:

    • The manufacturing process downtime is another reason for the further growth of the 3D printing market.
    • In terms of end-use, the aerospace and industrial sector use 18% of 3DP each while healthcare uses 15% of 3DP.
    • Jewelry and fashion industries are growing at a greater pace, due to huge customization requirements.
    • Prosthetics and implants are driving the demand in the medical and healthcare industry. Bio-printing is its field of research.
    • Development in metal additive manufacturing is the prime reason for the growth in the aerospace and defense industry
    • The automotive industry is still using this technology for prototyping.
    • 3DP is predominantly used for direct part production, to make functional and presentation models.
    • Desktop 3D printers will witness a rise in growth due to an increase in demand from sectors such as education, jewelry, and consumer products.
