Global 3D Printing Market (2020 to 2027) - Prominent Market Players Include Stratasys, 3D Systems, 3D Ceram and GE Additive Among Others

DUBLIN, Feb. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The "3D Printing Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Material, by Component (Hardware, Services), by Printer Type (Desktop, Industrial), by Technology, by Software, by Application, by Vertical, and Segment Forecasts, 2020 - 2027" report has been added to's offering.

The global 3D printing market size is estimated to reach USD 35.38 billion by 2027. It is expected to witness a CAGR of 14.6% over the forecast period.

3D printing is widely adopted in the industrial sector owing to the growing need for enhanced product manufacturing and a shorter time to market. The industrial vertical happens to be the most significant adopter of the 3DP technology and eventually leading to the highest market share of 3D printers for industrial applications over the forecast period. The additive manufacturing is anticipated to evolve with rising R&D and technological advancements.

3D printing continues to gain popularity among hobbyists and innovators. While individuals are using the technology for domestic and personal purposes, universities and educational institutes are using 3DP for conducting technical training. The market is subject to witness a considerable economical appearance rather than being just a labor-intensive industrial manufacturing technique. Particularly in developing economies, such as Brazil, South Africa, and India, machining shops have managed to adopt alternative business models by installing 3D printers and offer related services, such as 3DP materials, software, filaments, and 3D modeling.

Based on application, the 3D printing market has been segmented further into prototyping, tooling, and functional parts. Automotive, healthcare, and aerospace and defense verticals are among the leading adopters of 3D printing technology. Incumbents of these verticals have an emphasis on accuracy, enhanced product designing, reliability, shorter time to market, and economical production processes. Given that the additive manufacturing possess can offer all these benefits, the adoption of three-dimensional printers by the automotive, healthcare, and aerospace and defense verticals is expected to gain traction over the forecast period.

The 3D printing and related technologies are evolving continuously in line with the intensive R&D activities being undertaken and the aggressive investments being made by the private sector as well as the public sector. Government funding and encouraging initiatives being undertaken in developed economies are prompting manufacturers to pursue improvements in technology and the adoption of new technologies.

North America accounted for the largest market share of more than 35% in 2019 as a result of the extensive adoption of 3D printers for 3D designing, modeling, and manufacturing in various industries. On the other hand, Asia Pacific has emerged as a manufacturing hub owing to an expanding consumer base as well as the continued rise in foreign investments. Hence, the regional market is expected to witness remarkable growth over the forecast period.

The 3D printing technology happens to be a capital-intensive technology. At the same time, manufacturers are holding to their misconception about prototyping rather than realizing the advantages associated with 3D printing. Moreover, the market lacks the standard process controls and a skilled workforce required for 3D printing. These are some of the factors expected to restrain the market growth. However, government initiatives aimed at increasing the awareness and promoting the benefits of adopting 3D printers are expected to help counter the market restraints.

Further key findings from the report suggest:

    --  3D printing technology is gaining traction owing to the ability of the
        technology to offer accurate and rapid prototyping and optimize the time
        to market
    --  Increasing adoption of 3D printers in healthcare, automotive, and
        consumer electronics verticals is likely to drive the market growth
    --  Demand for desktop 3D printers is expected to increase over the forecast
        period, as 3D printing is gaining popularity among hobbyists for
        domestic, household, and personal usage as well as in education sector
        for training purposes
    --  Prototyping segment dominated the market in 2019 and is expected to
        expand its market share to more than 50% by 2027.
    --  The polymer segment contributed to almost half of the entire industry
        share. However, the metal segment is expected to dominate the market in
        the next seven years. This is attributed to the increasing demand for
        metal 3D printing from industrial verticals such as automotive and
        aerospace & defense
    --  The desktop 3D printing segment is expected to adopt the 3DP technique
        aggressively over the forecast period. It has been segmented further
        into educational purpose, fashion and jewelry, objects, dental, food,
        and others
    --  Asia Pacific 3D printing market, which is emerging as a manufacturing
        hub for several industry verticals, is anticipated to grow significantly
        as the continued urbanization triggers the need for infrastructure and
        prompts the automotive, consumer electronics, aerospace and defense, and
        healthcare verticals to adopt 3DP, particularly in countries, including
        China, Japan, and South Korea
    --  The prominent players in the market include Stratasys Ltd., 3D Systems,
        Inc., 3D Ceram, GE Additive, HP Inc., Tiertime, EnvisionTec, Inc., and
        Dassault Systemes
