3D Printing Industry Outlook, 2020-2025 - Growth of New Materials Spawning a 3D Printing Market for Previously Unaddressed Products

DUBLIN, Feb. 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The "3D Printing Market by Printer Type, Software, Services, Materials, Applications, Industry Verticals, and Regions 2020 - 2025" report has been added to's offering.

Research and Markets Logo

This report provides multi-dimensional analysis of the 3D Printing market including hardware manufacturers, service providers, application providers, software providers, raw material providers, and communities. The report also assesses the market impact of intellectual property, different technologies and strategies, raw material supplies, and other key factors across industry verticals globally and regionally including forecasts for 2020 to 2025.

Select Report Findings

  • 3D printers dominate the revenue picture through 2025 with 38.9% CAGR from 2020
  • Design and engineering for 3D printing will expand beyond traditional 2D CAD technologies
  • Combination of AI, IoT, and virtual twin technologies to accelerate 3D printing market growth
  • Growth of new materials is spawning a 3D printing market for previously unaddressed products
  • Substantial 3D printing market growth anticipated outside traditional manufacturing such as the medical device market
  • While North America, Asia Pac, and Europe are largest 3D printing markets, MEA region is fastest-growing globally
  • The industrial 3D printing market dwarfs desktop usage, but the latter is the foundation for an emerging prosumer SMB and SOHO marketplace

Robotic automation is advancing 3D printing applications beyond conventional manufacturing to encompass delivery of products and assets where and when they are needed. For example, specialized robotics are enabling innovative structure construction such as buildings, bridges, and other physical infrastructure.

In the healthcare arena, 3D printed prosthetics is facilitating significantly faster design and delivery for amputee solutions as well as prototyping and try-before-you-buy for patients. 3D custom implants provide efficient and substantially more expeditious delivery of bone replacement material for cancer patients. In fact, the publisher sees 3D printing in the healthcare market rapidly moving to mainstream adoption and usage by 2025.

In the enterprise and industrial arena, the fabrication, integration, and control of virtually any product is increasingly becoming digitized. This trend is accelerating as evidenced by recent surveys indicating that 3D Printing and other forms of additive manufacturing will have a positive impact, increase creativity and dramatically improve time to market, especially for certain goods and services.

3D printing communities of interest (such as those entities that use 3D printers and related tools including the use of more plugins or online apps) will move beyond mere integrated 3D printing networks to become a larger scale ecosystem. This is anticipated to be a fully integrated 3D ecosystem including 3D design, modelling and simulations, prototyping, and fabrication. This is driven in part by lower-cost communications infrastructure and services as well as availability and adoption of tools to support 3D including immersive tech and IoT solutions.

We see an emerging producer-consumers (e.g. prosumer) marketplace emerging for 3D printing in which everyday consumers engage in at least one part of the evolving connected manufacturing industry. Some trivial examples exist today such as Hero Forge, a company that provides tools for consumers to construct their own uniquely customizable fantasy roleplaying figures. We anticipate that the ability for selfhelp design and manufacturing with this prosumer model will become commonplace for many durable goods, causing disintermediation throughout supply chains, most notably with traditional manufacturers and retail outlets.
