Report on USA 3D Printing Market – Industry Analysis, Forecasts and Opportunity Assessment (2016-2023)

Consumer 3D Printing Market in the USA

According to the market report published by Allied Market Research, North America 3D printing market is expected to increase at a rate of 20.1% until 2022. 3D manufacturing is also known as additive manufacturing. It is used for the developing 3D objects using digital files. 3D printing is increasingly used in healthcare, consumer goods, defence, education and research, aerospace and construction. Aerospace and automotive industries use 3D printing technology to manufacture lighter and complex components used in the design. Healthcare companies use 3D printing to manufacture prosthetics, dental flexures and other devices. Reduction in production time and cost, reduction in errors and efficient utilization of resources are the factors that are driving 3D printing technology in the USA. Manufactures in the USA offer 3D printing services, 3D printers and material.

3D Printing Market Trends

3D printing is increasingly used in different industries. Defence agencies in the US make use of 3D printing to produce sophisticated defence equipment. Defence agencies plan to use 3D printing to produce ships and jets. 3D printing is increasingly being used in the education sector. Engineering and designing students can use 3D printing to print their creations. Architecture students can use this technology to produce 3D models of their designs. Chemistry students can print out molecules. Aerospace companies are producing more and more parts using 3D printing. Additive manufacturing is increasingly used to produce solar panels, solar devices, solar cells, microturbines and batteries. In healthcare 3D printing is used to produce dental implants, prosthetics, hearing aids, surgical guides, medical components, drug screening and tissue engineering. 38% of the companies surveyed by research firm EY in its “Global 3D Printing Report” expect additive manufacturing to become a part of their production process to produce consumer usable items by 2021. 59% of the American companies surveyed in this report witnessed greater ROI on their investment in the year 2017. Plastics like PLA are commonly used as printing material in 3D printing.

The industrial printers segment had the largest share in the 3D printer segment. The share of industrial printers was 78.96% in 2017. In the year 2018. As per market research report “3D Printing Market” published by MarketsandMarkets the global 3D printing market size is forecasted to reach $32.78 billion by 2023. The 3D printing market is expected to grow at a rate of 25.76% from the period 2017 to 2023. 3D printer manufacturing industry grew at a rate of 24.8% from the period 2012 to 2017. In 2017, the 3D printer manufacturing industry reached a revenue of $3 billion. A number of businesses has grown by 14.5 % in the same period and the number has reached 61. The number of people employed in the industry grew to 2752.

3D Printing Market Segmentation

By Offerings

Printers- Desktop- Desktop printers are small in size and have less precision. They are meant for domestic use.

Industrial- Industrial printers are designed to 3D print advanced prototypes. These printers can be used to produce individual prototypes as well as batches of prototypes.

By Process

Powder Bed Fusion- It is a method which is used to melt and fuse material powder together with the help of a laser or electron beam.

Material Extrusion- It is a 3D printing technique. The main printing material in this technique is plastic filament. It is an additive technology used modelling and prototyping.

Vat Polymerisation- It uses a vat to construct a model layer by layer.

Material Jetting- It is an additive manufacturing technique used to combine different print materials.

Binder Jetting- In this technique a liquid binding agent is selectively deposited to join powder particles.

Directed Energy Deposition- A complex printing procedure used to repair or add additional material to existing components.

Sheet Lamination- Sheets of material are used to build up a part. The common type of material is paper or metal foil.

By Application
