3D Printing Materials 2015-2025: Status, Opportunities, Market Forecasts – PR Newswire (press release)

by • March 21, 2016 • No Comments

NEW YORK, March 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — This 132 slide report (PDF) covers the current and next status, opportunities and market forecasts of 3D printing materials. It contains many illustrative and analytical figures and tables plus profiles of 16 companies, of across the globe, who donate a wide variety of materials for 3D printing. Interviews with 8 industrial end-users describe their experiences with 3D printing and donate insight into their requires.
Upon request the original PowerPoint can be included free of charge as part of the report purchase.
3D Printing Materials
Gone are the days of 3D Printing being identified with Rapid Prototyping; the days of Additive Manufacturing are here.
Since the 1980s, when 3D Printing was initially commercialised, it has grown reasonably slowly, being adopted manyly for tiny scale prototyping. In 2009, Stratasys’ key patent expired, the market place became flooded with bargain-priced thermoplastic extruders, interest exploded, and the market for thermoplastic filament rocketed. It is expected to revery over $1B by 2025, despite the falling price per kg.
This new interest inspired developments in many technologies to 3D print a wider variety of materials. A brief overview of every of these technologies is outlined in this report. But not all materials are equal. This report outlines the advantages and disadvantages of printing in various materials, the applications of every, and technical data on the properties of 3D printed materials, that frequently differ of their traditionally manufactured analogue. These new materials mean there has been space for many new companies, and in addition many acquisitions by 3D printing device manufacturers. Information on start-ups, closures, mergers and acquisitions is included.
No longer is 3D Printing utilized just for one-off pieces and prototypes, but for final part production of items with reduced and simplified assembly, quicker create iterations, greater create freedom, weight customisation and minimal material wastage. For these reasons, 3D Printing is may already common in aerospace, orthopaedic, jewelry and dental sectors. Adoption is fast-growing in education, military, architecture, medical research, and car sectors. Nineteen end markets, which include all of these have been investigated. The many common applications, technologies and materials alter by geography so the current markets and growth rates are split by region. Changes in use can lead to various growth rates for various materials.
This weightive growth in the use and applications of 3D Printers is encouraging a weightive growth in the market for 3D Printing Materials. Detailed forecasts, via information of interviews with 50 key players in the industry and disclosed financial information, estimate seven key materials are expected to have a total market of over $8B by 2025. This report comes with detailed say of the market, in terms of market value and volume, for:
Thermoplastic filaments
Thermoplastic powders
Metal powders
Sand and binder
Welding wire
The value chain for 3D printing materials is complex for the reason several leading industrial printing device manufacturers engage in “vendor lock-in” in a way analogous to 2D printing devices, but bargain-priceder 3D printing devices allow the purchase of free market materials. The chapter on the value chain clarifies the situation, and quantifies the markets at every stage of the chain. There are separate price projections and forecasts for these two approaches and for various end-user behaviours.
The report in addition comes with discussions on developments for emerging materials which include:
Electrically conducting materials
Carbon fibre
Disruptive technologies that have the future to dramatically alter the market have in addition been investigated, which include computer thermoplastic recyclers, bargain-priceder ways of making metal powders, competing ways to prototype and new 3D printing technologies.
