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 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 printed product. The market segmentation according to materials type is divided into Polyamides, Thermos Plastics, and High-performance Polymers. The main application areas of 3D printing plastic materials are in aerospace & automotive, healthcare & medical, commercial/industrial, etc.

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, light weight of the OEM components for better fuel efficiency to reduce carbon footprint is an additional factor boosting the exponential growth for 3D printing plastics in the upcoming 5 years.

The regional demand for 3D printing plastics is consistently growing, especially in European & North American regions. 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 most of the manufacturing and consumption markets, thus providing the maximum 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.
