At a CAGR of 9.8%, Global 3D Printing Market to Surpass US$ 15,320.8 Million by the End of 2027, Says Coherent Market Insights (CMI)

SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#3DModel–3D printing is the process of creating three-dimensional solid objects from a digital file. It is also termed additive manufacturing and is achieved using additive processes. In this process, the object is created by laying down successive layers of the material until the object is created. There are different products made with 3D printing including consumer products such as footwear, eyewear, and furniture, dental products, prosthetics, industrial products such as manufacturing tool and prototypes, architectural scale models, reconstructing fossils, movie props, etc. 3D printing is comparatively cheaper and quicker than the ordinary manufacturing process.

The global 3D printing market is estimated to account for US$ 15,320.8 Mn in terms of value at a CAGR of 9.8% during forecast period 2020-2027.

Market Drivers

1. Increasing government investments in 3D printing projects is expected to accelerate growth of the global 3D printing market during the forecast period

Governments of many countries are focused on increasing investment in 3D printing projects, 3D printing R&D activities, and more. These government authorities are collaborating with key industry players, in order to kick start projects. For instance, in March 2019, Andhra Pradesh Economic Development Board (APEDB) and Andhra Pradesh Innovation Society (APIS) entered into a contract with HP Inc. India to build the Centre of Excellence (CoE) in 3D printing technology.

2. Development of new industrial-grade 3D printing materials is expected to boost the global 3D printing market growth over the forecast period

There are different types of materials used in 3D printing such as metal, resins, plastic, powders, paper, nitinol, and more. However, key industry players are focused on developing novel materials, in order to expand the applications of 3D printing.
