3D printing technology has been evolving faster than other manufacturing technologies as it can influence manufacturing processes and help businesses perform to a higher level. Further, 3D printing manufacturing line is easier to alter than the production line for traditional manufacturing. This makes it preferable for the bulk equipment manufacturing processes. Due to this advantage, industries such as aerospace, construction, and automotive have started adopting this technology aggressively. On the other hand, healthcare and electronics manufacturers are some of the earliest adopters of 3D printing, owing to its advantages such as faster time-to-market, design flexibility, and capabilities of manufacturing customized products. Thus, in the last few years, huge market demand for 3D printing materials were observed in healthcare.
The 3D Printing Materials Market is expected to reach $4.03 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 20.7% during the forecast period of 2019 to 2025.
