3D Printing Materials Market: Leading Segments

Patents play a major role in deciding the market demand, especially in the 3D printing materials market. Plastics, ceramics, and metals, are the commonly used raw materials in 3D printing. However, plastics are extensively used among the other 3D printing materials, they are particularly used in desktop and high-end 3D printers because of its ease and low-cost. Owing of its properties, ceramics are used even in high temperatures and corrosive environments, where other materials are inflexible to use. 3D printing techniques involved in 3D print ceramics production are improving the quality and great efficiency of these materials in 3D Printing. These 3D printing ceramic products are mainly used in the fields of aerospace and healthcare. According to the IndustryARC report, the ceramics market revenue constitutes a predominant share in the 3D printing materials market. Thus, the demand for ceramics is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 25.7% during the aforesaid forecast period.

Governments of numerous countries are investing and promoting the growth of the 3D printing materials market. North America is the leading producer of 3D printing materials, which occupied a share of 47.6% in the global 3D printing market as of 2017 and it holds a major share followed by Canada in the North America 3D printing materials market. 3D printing market has experienced a notable demand from the personal and consumer products in the North America region. 3D printing materials are experiencing high demand across aerospace and defense segments in North America.
