3D Printing Gases Market Size, Share, Growth Analysis(2021-2026):

The global 3D printing gases market size is estimated to extend from $ 26.40 million in 2021 to $ 45.53 million by 2026, recording a CAGR of 10.76%. Gases such as argon, nitrogen, and gas mixtures are employed in the design and manufacturing industry. This application is predicted to drive the call for 3D printing gases market during the foreseen period.

3D printing is a type of additive manufacturing technology in which a three-dimensional object is produced by placing successive layers of material to create the final product. 3D printing is also known as the rapid prototyping method. This is an automated process in which 3D objects are developed on a machine that is connected to a computer, including the plane of the object. This printing method saves time and money through the use of inkjet technology. Product formation is currently the main application of 3D printing technology. In the medical field, doctors use 3D printing machines to print body parts for reference before complicated surgeries. Other machines are employed to make bone grafts for patients who have suffered painful injuries.

3D Printing Gases Trends:

Additive manufacturing or 3D printing must be done in controlled environments with minimal exposure of materials and processes to impurities to produce high-quality products. Gases such as argon, nitrogen, or gas mixtures provide the inert atmospheres necessary to meet the high tolerance standards in this field. 3D printing gases are employed to improve the quality of 3D printed parts. They are also employed to maintain constant pressure to create a stable printing environment, reduce dust build-up in the feed tube, and control thermal stress through gradual cooling to prevent part deformation. The world market for 3D printing has grown exponentially in recent years. The technology has begun to penetrate the traditional market for manufacturing and consumer products. The demand is supposed to grow rapidly in the near future, boosting the worldwide 3D printing gases market.

Recent Developments in the 3D Printing Gases Industry:

  • Evonik opens a new 3D printing technology center. Located in the United States, Evonik's new technology center for 3D printing will be essential for the development of new ready-to-use materials for powder bed fusion made with structured polymer technology.

3D Printing Gases Market Drivers

The global 3D printing gases market is primarily driven by technical advancements and industrialization, along with the increasing population in developing regions. Escalatingcall in various applications such as design and manufacturing, healthcare, consumer products and others is another driver that is predicted to drive the 3D printing gas market in the coming years. The design and manufacturing sector is likely to have the largest market share and dominate the 3D printing gases market during the outlook period. Also, the market will also expand due to increased investment in research and development of 3D printing technologies. The growing call for inert gases in the aerospace and healthcare industries to meet the high tolerance standards required in 3D printing is estimated to be the key factor for the expansion of this market. In the healthcare sector, the customization of prosthetics and dentistry, allows bioprinting of bones, cartilage and human muscles, which is expected to boost demand in this industry. Furthermore, the rapid expansion of the 3D printing market is predicted to fuel the call for 3D printing gases business during the projection period. During the printing process, these gases provide an inert atmosphere that helps reduce oxidation of sintered parts by reducing oxygen content and creating a stable printing environment by maintaining constant pressure in the printing chamber.


Due to the high cost of gas processing and complex manufacturing processes, organizations are exposed to potential risks and limit the expansion of the 3D printing gases market.

Opportunities in the 3D Printing Gases Market:

The growing call for 3D printing in emerging economies, coupled with technological advancements, will likely open up new opportunities for the 3D printing gases market in the near future.


The high cost of production and strict rules and regulations are some of the factors that are supposed to slow down the expansion of the market.
