3D Printing Market size touched USD 13.1 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 60.6 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 21.1% over the fore cast period 2022-2029 attributed to research and development in the field of dimensional printing.
Main 3D Printing Market Drivers
Major factors driving 3D printing Market are surge in the demand for prototyping applications from different industry verticals like healthcare and defense, government initiatives supporting additive manufacturing and advancements in industrial grade 3D printing materials. For instance, Indian government introduced national strategy on additive manufacturing, which aims to boost the start-up eco-system in the field of 3D printing and developing around 500 additive manufactured products in the country. As the 3D printing market is growing at a fast rate, Indian government plans to increase share of Indian companies in the global 3D printing market by 5% in coming few years.
Companies are leveraging 3D printing techniques to develop customized products and minimize their production cost and process downtime. 3D printing is helping enterprises to design products at affordable prices, which is increasing its adoption in various end-use industries. Additionally, declining prices of additive manufacturing machines, research and development initiatives by major corporations and growing demand for lightweight vehicles in the emerging economies, are some of the factors augmenting the 3D printer market growth. Healthcare industry was negatively impacted by covid-19 outbreak due to disruptions in the global supply chain, which created growth opportunities for the 3D printing industry. As manufacturers used alternative techniques like 3D printing due to its fast-prototyping capabilities for manufacturing essential medical products like face masks and personal protective equipment (PPE) kits. However, insufficient availability of skilled workforce is hampering the market growth.
