Global 3D Printing Markets, 2022-2027 by Printer Type, Materials, Software, Applications, Services and Solutions in Verticals – | Business

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–March 14, 2022–

This report provides a multidimensional analysis of the 3D printing market, including hardware manufacturers, service providers, application providers, software providers, raw material providers, and communities. The report also assesses the market impact of intellectual property, different technologies and strategies, raw material sourcing, and other key factors across industry verticals globally and regionally, including forecasts for 2022 to 2027.

This report also assesses companies involved in the 3D printing solutions value chain. For example, HP’s MJF technology is a powder-based 3D printing technology that does not rely on lasers. MJF uses fine grain materials, allowing layers as thin as 80 microns. Thin printed layers have higher density and lower porosity, resulting in smooth surfaces right out of the printer. MJF 3D printing applications include prototypes for form, fit and function testing.

Robotic automation advances 3D printing applications beyond conventional manufacturing to encompass the delivery of products and assets where and when they are needed. For example, specialized robotics enables the construction of innovative structures such as buildings, bridges and other physical infrastructure. An example of a company that leverages the combination of robotics and 3D printing is Aectual.

The company’s 3D printing system incorporates a robotic arm with six degrees of directional freedom and the ability to move freely between those axes. With a 360 degree range, Aectual can print on an area of ​​500 square feet, allowing the creation of large-scale objects and massive unique prints. The company claims that its design-to-delivery process reduces the cost of bespoke architectural projects by up to 50%. Aectual produces pre-made decorative pieces as well as specialized customer designs at a higher cost.

In healthcare, 3D printed prostheses dramatically speed up the design and delivery of solutions for amputees, as well as prototyping and test-before-purchase for patients. Custom 3D implants enable efficient and significantly faster delivery of bone replacement material for cancer patients. In fact, the publisher sees 3D printing in the healthcare market rapidly moving towards widespread adoption and use by 2024 in select niche markets for healthcare supply providers.

In aerospace, a company called Relativity has raised around $1.2 billion backed by Fidelity, BlackRock and other leading investment firms. The company plans to 3D print nearly all of the components for its 200-foot-tall orbital rockets. Other rocket factories use 3D printers to quickly draft some components, but most components are imported from suppliers through a complex supply chain.

At Relativity, the rocket parts are built almost entirely by one-armed robots. Since about ninety percent of its rockets are 3D printed, the company says its rockets can use fewer than a thousand parts where traditional vehicles use 100 times as many.

In business and industry, the manufacturing, integration and control of virtually all products is increasingly digitized. This trend is accelerating, as evidenced by recent surveys indicating that 3D printing and other forms of additive manufacturing will have a positive impact, increase creativity and dramatically improve time to market, especially for certain goods. and services.

Communities of interest in 3D printing (such as entities that use 3D printers and related tools, including the use of more plug-ins or online applications) will go beyond simple networks integrated 3D printing to become a larger-scale ecosystem. It should be a fully integrated 3D ecosystem including design, 3D modeling and simulations, prototyping and manufacturing. This is due in part to lower-cost communications infrastructure and services, as well as the availability and adoption of tools to support 3D, including immersive and IoT technology solutions.

We are seeing the emergence of an emerging producer-consumer (e.g. “prosumer”) market for 3D printing in which everyday consumers engage in at least some of the evolution of the printing industry. connected manufacturing. A few trivial examples exist today, such as Hero Forge, a company that provides tools for consumers to build their own customizable fantasy role-playing game characters.

We anticipate that the ability to self-design and manufacture with this prosumer model will become commonplace for many durable goods, driving disintermediation along supply chains, especially with traditional manufacturers and retail outlets.

  • The production-as-a-service business model is a rapidly growing solution area
  • Design and engineering for 3D printing will expand beyond traditional 2D CAD technologies
  • The growth of new materials is creating a 3D printing market for previously unaddressed products
  • The use of a desktop 3D printer will be the basis of an emerging market for SMEs and TPE prosumers
  • Substantial growth in the 3D printing market anticipated outside of traditional manufacturing such as the medical device market
  • While North America, Asia-Pacific and Europe are the largest 3D printing markets, the MEA region is the fastest growing in the world
