3D Printing Plastics Market – Global Drivers, Restraints, Opportunities, Trends, and Forecasts up to 2022
3D printing, also popularly known as additive manufacturing, is a technology that uses a printer and a digital file to produce physical and tangible objects. The digital file is technically known as computer-aided design and is made according to the print requirement, materials type, and printer used to manufacture the product. The market segmentation according to materials type is divided into key segments of commodity polymers, high performance polymers, bioplastics, and elastomers among others. The main application areas of 3D printing plastic materials are in aerospace & defense, automotive, and healthcare among others.
Globally, the demand for 3D printing plastic materials is high in economically developed countries, whereas the developing regions are catching up the pace. Extensive consumption of plastic materials comes from aerospace and automotive domains due to changing product designs from time to time. Further, the light weight of the OEM components for better fuel efficiency to reduce carbon footprint is an additional factor boosting the exponential growth of 3D printing plastics in the next 5 years.
This growth is supported by lucrative, fast-growing technological industries, and the growing manufacturing market in these regions. Currently, North America is the global leader in the 3D printing plastics market from the demand side. The European region, on the other hand, has an advantage of having large manufacturing and consumption markets, thus providing the second largest contribution to the 3D printing plastics market. From the supplier side, Europe followed by Asia Pacific are the market leaders in the 3D printing plastics. The European market is also witnessing a capital influx in 3D printing technology from Tier 1 companies, which is increasing the regional competition.
