3D Printing Market Size & Growth (2020 – 2025)

Global 3D printing market size is expected to reach around US$ 44 billion by 2025, recording an annual compound rate of above 20% during the forecast period of 2020-2025. Metals and Alloy Segment predicted to grow with high CAGR in the forecast period.

Market growth and trends:

For any 3D printed device used for implants/other medical uses, biocompatibility is of paramount importance. Any material used must comply with surface chemistry, surface topography and other parameters that determine the biological response to the implanted device. Titanium alloy and pure titanium are the most preferred and biocompatible metal materials for a biomedical implant. Titanium alloys, such as Ti6Al4V, improve strength and have corrosion resistance. However, it is essential to keep in mind that the high elastic modulus in titanium causes a flexible displacement between the bones and the implant. 

In general, titanium is one of the most widely adopted metals for 3D printing for medical applications. The titanium or titanium alloy market is presumed to experience the highest annual growth rate during the forecast period. Thanks to technological advances, the titanium subsegment of 3D printing is expected to revolutionize medical device manufacturers throughout the projection period. However, 3D printed devices require more stringent software and hardware specifications than the specifications of other traditional medical devices. These factors should allow regular and steady growth of companies and general activity over the outlook period.

Recent developments:

  • SLM Solutions Group AG, a manufacturer of publicly traded metal 3D printers and co-owner of the SLM word brand based in Lübeck, Germany, and Divergent Technologies, signed a letter of intent to purchase next-generation AM machines and further expand your partnership strategically. Czinger was appointed to broaden and deepen the strategic cooperation between the companies and the SLM Solutions' supervisory board in June 2019.
  • 3D Systems DDD, a company that designs, manufactures and sells 3D printers based in Rock Hill, South Carolina, was developing tissue bio-printing and scaffolding processes for third-party companies, intending to accelerate the progress of biomedical industries in Partnership with CollPlant Biotechnologies CLGN.
  • In February 2018, Johnson & Johnson announced the launch of a global center of excellence for 3D bioprinting at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland. This new facility, which is a collaboration between Johnson & Jonhson and AMBER Research, will serve as a 3D bioprinting research laboratory. It is expected to be operational before the start of 2019, and the facility will also conduct research in the field of orthopedics and is foreseen to transform the delivery of health services for patients and consumers.
  • Engineers at the University of Science and Technology in Pohang, South Korea, have successfully developed "blood vessels" from a 3D printer using material extracted from the human body as a model. These blood vessels can also act as carriers of drugs which release the drug into its inserted environment, thereby increasing the chances of successful implantation.

Drivers and market restraints:

One of the main drivers of the global 3D printing market is the increasing use of this technology in many applications, such as transplantation, medication administration, 3D printed organs and many more in the health industry. The growing demand for implant customizations during surgical procedures, along with the increasing investments in R&D, is also driving global 3D printing in the health market. In addition, the use of 3D printing for making models in automotive, manufacturing and other industries is also boosting the global business. 

One of the main challenges in the global 3D printing market is the high cost of 3D printers. Technologies such as stereolithography, laser beam, electron beam, photocuring and drop deposition techniques are too expensive to apply often.

Market segmentation:

This global market report is segmented and sub-segmented into the following categories:

  • By Component - Hardware, Software, Services

The hardware segment held the principal portion in the global 3D printing market and is likely to continue its dominion in the coming years.
