3D Printing Materials Market: Key Drivers and Trends

  • Low wastage of cartridges in additive printing systems is one of the critical reasons expected to propel the 3D printing materials market growth in the next five years.
  • Additive printing produces low wastage when compared with traditional printing owing to the predetermination of the exact amount of the required materials.
  • Additive printing creates a rough shape initially to print the desired dimension while mitigating the waste generated by computerized numerical control (CNC) milling.
  • 3D printing is the ideal solution for users to attain the exact designs according to their requirements by reducing the volume of waste. 
  • The emergence of new 3D printing materials will fuel the growth of the 3D printing materials market size.
  • Plastics, ceramics, and metals are the key materials used in 3D printing.
  • Plastics are the most widely used 3D printing material as it is cost-effective and suitable for several applications.
  • The vendors are making significant investments in developing inexpensive and versatile materials for different applications.
  • Several vendors are expanding their portfolios to include new materials, which will drive the growth of the 3D printing materials market during the forecast period.
