New York, August 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Reportlinker.com Announces the Publication of the “3D Printing Market by Offer, Process, Application, Vertical, Technology and Geography – Global Forecast to 2026” – https: // www.reportlinker.com/p04998220/?utm_source=GNW
Additionally, the increased demand for healthcare supplies due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the potential of 3D printing to improve manufacturing processes and supply chain management have created several opportunities for manufacturers. 3D printers on the market. The ability of 3D printing technology to reduce the time required to design and produce functional parts enables rapid production of prototypes without reconfiguring or retooling the production line. For low to medium volume applications, 3D printing eliminates the need for expensive tool production, resulting in reduced costs, time and labor associated with it.
The main factor limiting the growth of the 3D printing market includes limited availability and high cost of materials, limitation in product size, and lack of standard process control. A greater range of raw materials are available for traditional manufacturing than that available for manufacturing processes based on 3D printing. 3D printing of products with mixed materials and technologies, such as circuit boards, is still under development. Although the technology is a major breakthrough in processes, the materials that can be used are still limited. In addition, the accuracy and reproducibility of products formed by 3D printing are hampered by the lack of appropriate standards regarding the mechanical properties of the materials used.
The market declined in 2020, mainly due to the impact of COVID-19. Supply chains were disrupted in 2020 due to lockdowns imposed by various governments and labor shortages in the automotive, aerospace, consumer electronics, industries due to travel restrictions , which would affect the 3D printing market.
E-commerce has flourished due to bottlenecks in regions and limitations in logistics. Limitations on imports and exports from China and other APAC countries have banned manufacturing facilities in North America and Europe.
This created a significant fluctuation in overhead and overall product quality for these manufacturers. Although the market was affected in 2020, it is expected to fully recover by 2021.
Prototyping: The largest segment of the 3D printing market, by application
Prototyping is the main application in the 3D printing market. Prototyping has been the main use of 3D printing for industries including aerospace, automotive, etc.
With the ability to produce multiple design iterations in a shorter period of time, 3D printing is an effective tool for product development. Technology has now evolved so that it can be used to create functional prototypes using high performance materials.
Functional prototyping and concept modeling allow design and engineering teams to visualize and test products. 3D printing also enables the rapid production of cost-effective prototypes based on customer requirements for structural geometry, precision and well-defined smoothness of products used in any industry.
Automotive: The fastest growing segment of the 3D printing market, by vertical
The automotive sector is the fastest growing sector for the 3D printing market. The automotive industry has also moved from using 3D printing for prototyping applications to manufacturing components and end products.
The demand for newer, more efficient vehicles, along with the need to optimize production and streamline supply chains and logistics, are driving market growth. New trends including autonomous vehicles, electric cars and mass customization are forcing automakers and suppliers to embrace 3D printing technologies throughout the automotive application value chain.
To stay competitive at the stage of Industry 4.0, car manufacturers are accelerating the adoption of 3D printing technologies.
