This market research report identifies suppliers like Arcam, EOS, Hoganas, Sandvik, and SLM Solutions to be the key vendors in the global metal material based 3D printing market. It also presents a detailed segmentation of the global market by type (titanium, stainless steel, nickel, aluminum, and others), by end-users (aerospace and defense, tool and mold making, academic institutions, automobiles, healthcare, and others), and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global metal material based 3D printing market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global metal material based 3D printing market to grow steadily at a CAGR of above 25% by 2021. One of the primary drivers for this market is the increasing rate of adoption in metal 3D printing in industrial application. Metal 3D printing is widely adopted for prototyping processes because it can produce complex shapes in a shorter lead time. Some of the high valued and most advanced products from 3D printing are aircraft engines and turbine components. The industrial end-users are service bureaus, research institutions, and the aerospace industry. Also, metal 3D printing is used in applications such as direct tooling, manufacturing inserts, and molds with cooling channels in the tool and mold making segment. Moreover, advantages like a high degree of maturity and the capability to provide partially complex geometries are expected to propel growth in the global metal material based 3D printing market during the forecast period.

In terms of geography, the Americas accounted for the maximum market share during 2016 and will continue to dominate the market for the next few years. One of the primary reasons for the significant revenue contribution from this region is the presence of many distinct manufacturing companies that use 3D printing services. In the Americas, 3D printing technology is increasingly adopted in the healthcare, aerospace, and military industries. Also, the increasing efforts of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization to promote industrial development in Central and South American countries is expected to augment growth in the global metal material based 3D printing market in the coming years.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The global 3D printing materials market is fragmented due to the presence of several international players holding market shares across the globe. These vendors offer plastics, steel, nickel, cobalt-chrome, titanium, and aluminum 3D printing materials.
