Industrial 3D Printing Market Size, Trends & Growth (2021 - 2026)

The industrial 3D printing market is one of the largest markets, and furthermore, it is expected to gain the largest market share in the overall 3D printing industry during the forecast period, which requires large investments in technology, the introduction of new materials, channel associations and vertical integration throughout the value chain. The industrial sector is driven by the contemporary aspects of mass customization, the Internet of Things (IoT), and the upcoming administrative initiative invoking the introduction of 3D printing in the manufacturing sector.

3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, is an object-creating technology, offering a plethora of opportunities in the production, design, and performance of new architectural forms, building systems, and materials. It is an innovative, fast and agile method of product development and production with fast advances in the material organization; for example, the arising use cases for polymers and metals, additive substance producing is developing from a prototyping instrument to a practical piece of assembling. New materials, more limited lead times, and inventive get done with the following principles (FDA, ASTM, and ISO) permit innovation to be coordinated into assembling measures. Furthermore, falling prices for machines based on additive manufacturing, coupled with growing experience and awareness, have increased the availability of this technology. Newer and more advanced molten deposit modeling methods have enabled the use of various materials, driving widespread adoption across various industries in recent years.

Recent Developments:

  • EDEN PRAIRIE, Minnesota and REHOVOT, Israel - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Stratasys Ltd. (NASDAQ: SSYS), a leader in polymeric 3D printing solutions, today announced the acquisition of RP Support Ltd., a provider of 3D printers and stereolithography solutions. 
  • Autodesk incorporates Netfabb 3D printing programming into Fusion 360.
  • Arcam today dispatches Arcam Q20, another EBM framework planned explicitly for assembling in the avionic business - Arcam AB.

Drivers and Restraints of Industrial 3D Printing Market:


Drivers of the 3D printing market are reduced errors, decreased development time and costs, and the ability to create custom products. What's more, the development of uses in medical care and different ventures is required to set out worthwhile development opportunities for the 3D printing market.


Unexpectedly, the significant expense of 3D printing and the lack of talented work is hampering the development of the market.

Industrial 3D Printing Market Segmentation:

By Offering

  • Printers 
  • Materials 
  • Software 
  • Services 

By Technology

  • Stereolithography

  • Electron Beam Melting 
  • Laser Metal Deposition 
  • Digital Light Projection 
  • Laminated Object Manufacturing 

The selective laser sintering segment is having the highest shares of the industrial 3D printing market. Selective laser sintering (SLS) has been identified as the most preferred technology. It is expected to record the highest CAGR during the forecast period due to its various advantages over other technologies. SLS uses 12 nylon powders as raw material, replacing the photosensitive resin used in stereolithography. Research companies and organizations around the world have been identified that take advantage of this material and technology to address problems such as the brittle nature of resin when exposed to sunlight. In addition to this, SLS has also proven to be inexpensive and material-friendly as it does not require any dedicated support structure after printing. In addition to that, SLS offers increased durability and can function as well as workpieces or prototypes.

By Process

  • Material Extrusion 
  • Material Jetting 
  • Binder Jetting 
  • Sheet Lamination 
  • Vat Photopolymerization 
  • Powder Bed Fusion 
  • Direct Energy Deposition 

The power bed fusion segment is leading with the dominant shares of the industrial 3D printing market. Powder bed fusion 3D printing includes direct laser sintering of metals (DMLS), electron beam fusion (EBM), selective thermal sintering (SHS), selective laser fusion (SLM), and selective laser sintering (SLS) technologies, which are the most used in industrial 3D printing technologies, for the development of tools and machinery parts for the aerospace, automotive, healthcare and printed electronics industries. The ability to produce complex geometries and provide high-resolution characteristics, good strength, and a decent surface finish are the main drivers of the growth of the powder bed fusion 3D printing market. This process also saves less time to develop a product.

By Application

  • Prototyping 
  • Manufacturing 

Prototyping is one of the significant uses of industrial 3D printing. With the assistance of prototyping, plans and their precision can be confirmed. This is an important step that is usually taken before the design of the final product and is mainly done with the help of 3D printing. Additive manufacturing greatly simplifies the prototyping process. A few organizations are additionally considering the appropriateness of 3D prototyping for the creation of devices, substantial hardware, and apparatus.
