The Additive Manufacturing Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 20.3% from 2024 to 2031 to reach $93.36 billion by 2031. The growth of the additive manufacturing market is driven by the rising need to produce complex parts, reduce manufacturing expenses, and minimize waste, improvements in product development and supply chains, and easy customization and bulk production using additive manufacturing. Furthermore, the growing use of 3D printers to produce functional end-use parts, composite 3D printing, increasing use of 3D printing in regenerative medicine, and increasing spending in aerospace & defense is expected to offer significant growth opportunities for players operating in the additive manufacturing market.

However, restricted build size & material constraints and high pre-processing and post-processing costs may restrain the growth of this market. In addition, concerns about piracy & unauthorized distribution, scarcity of skilled professionals, high initial investment requirements, and maintaining consistent quality are the major challenges for the growth of this market.
