The conventional methods require more time for production as these components are highly complex. Such factors are presenting favorable conditions for the overall growth of the aerospace 3D printing industry during the forecast period.


The presence of advanced technologies that are producing at a faster rate is presenting opportunities for market growth. For instance, the DMLS technology utilizes powdered metals and is thereby capable of producing 100 times faster. Moreover, the emerging market players are bringing in new strategies that are expected to boost the overall growth of the aerospace 3D printing industry.


Market restraints:


The key manufacturers are outsourcing the 3D printing processes to 3rd party organizations due to the time consumption and enhanced customization that in the future required maintenance and installation costs and other issues. Such factors are considered as the major restraints of aerospace 3D printing market growth. 


The fluctuation in the raw materials and the restrictions imposed by the government regarding the volume of the construction is considered as the primary restraints of aerospace 3D printing market growth. The demand for the smaller components and the incapability of 3D printing technologies to cater to the demand are also expected to hinder the overall growth of the aerospace 3D printing industry.


Market challenges:


The demand for higher volume production at a minimal time is considered as the major challenge for aerospace 3D printing market growth. The amount of complexity involved and the demand for the effectiveness consume a lot of manufacturing time and are considered as the major market challenge for aerospace 3D printing market growth.


Requirement of higher manufacturing, operational, and procuring costs are considered as the major challenge for the market growth. The procurement of advanced 3D printing machines and the capital and setting up costs are higher and considered as the major challenge for the overall growth of the aerospace 3D printing industry.


Cumulative growth analysis:


The market value of the aerospace 3D printing industry was at USD 1.9 billion in the year 2021 and is expected to surpass the market value of over USD 4.9 billion by the year 2027 while registering a CAGR of 19.4% during the forecast period. The aerospace industry is demanding cost-effective and lightweight aerospace components with no compromise on their functionality. Currently, the manufacturers are facing distress in the production units and are capable of producing only limited volumes of the components. Such factors are driving the overall growth of the aerospace 3D printing industry in recent times. 


The growing demand to design and manufacture the engines is also considered as the major driver of aerospace 3D printing market growth, because of the advanced technologies in the market, the complex engines can be designed with improved strength and minimal weight as well. The technologies such as Stereolithography, selective laser sintering, direct metal laser sintering, and significant others are bolstering the overall growth of the aerospace 3D printing industry.


Value chain analysis:


The growth of the aerospace 3D printing industry is influenced by the growing demand for the crucial components involved in the industry. For instance, the demand for designing aircraft, space crafts, UAVs, and significant other advanced engineering materials are bolstering the overall growth of the aerospace 3D printing industry. The demand to reduce weight and improve the performance of these components, especially manufacturing thin walls, curved surfaces with complex dimensions is growing across the aerospace industry which is considered as the major driver of aerospace 3D printing market growth. 


On the other hand, the demand for cost-efficient and customized printed solutions and manufacturing processes are growing in recent years. Several leading market players are increasingly outsourcing the manufacturing processes to separate 3D printing companies and that requires after-sales and maintenance. Moreover, several manufacturers are carrying out the material extrusion and fusion deposition modeling that is considered an as fast and efficient method to manufacture bulk volumes with minimal wastage. The capability while utilizing this technology to manufacture with complex shapes and varied material thicknesses and textures are bolstering the overall growth of the aerospace 3D printing industry.
