3D printing adds a high value towards developing a concerned product, and has application in various parts of the production phase; such as, it used for prototyping, tooling, and production of small parts. Its main attraction lies in producing highly complicated parts with ease. The availability of designs in 3D printing is far more than that in moldings. Also, it helps to optimize the supply chain and condense the lead times— from the manufacturing to the market.

Early buyers will receive 10% customization on this report.


The elements behind the rapid upsurge in the 3D Printing Market are the innovative and advanced technologies, customized products, governments funding, wide unexploited application market, rapid development of the products at a low cost, and less time-to-market. In addition, the upcoming (in 2014) expiration of patents with respect to the Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is also believed to provide a further impetus to the growth of the 3D Printer Market.

As of 2013, the America holds the largest revenue share followed by Europe in 3D Printer Machines, materials, and related services. However, Europe is also expected to surpass America in terms of the 3D Printing Market revenue by 2020. The foremost factors accountable for the expansion of 3D Printing Market include new and improved 3D printing technologies, wide range of materials (polymers, metals/alloys, sand, ceramics, living tissue), government funding, broad application scope, and increased awareness regarding the benefits of 3D printing over traditional techniques (injection molding and CNC machining).
