Digital 3D Printing Market Trends

ID: MRFR//7208-CR | 200 Pages | Author: Rahul Gotadki| January 2020

Digital 3D Printing Market Overview

Digital 3D Printing Market Size was valued at USD 18.00 Billion in 2023. The Digital 3D Printing industry is projected to grow from USD 20.62 Billion in 2024 to USD 62.46 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14.86% during the forecast period (2024 - 2032). 3D Printing is a process in which physical objects are created by depositing materials in layers based on a digital model. The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved using additive processes. In an additive process, an object is created by laying down successive layers of materials until the object is created. 3D Printing enables to produce complex shapes using less material than traditional manufacturing methods. Each 3D Printing process requires software, hardware, and materials to work together.

Digital 3D Printing Market Trends

Increasing applications of Digital 3D Printing in healthcare industry is expected to boost market growth. 3D Printing techniques have empowered medical practitioners, manufacturers of medical devices, as well as researchers due to their use in dental & orthodontic treatments, orthopedic implants, tissue engineering, and drug development. As a result, the increasing benefits of the mentioned applications would boost digital 3d printing market growth. 3D Printing technique is useful to speed up procedures and helps to minimize the trauma faced by patients due to conventional treatment options. Technological advancements in digital 3D Printing, rising public-private funding for 3D Printing activities are the major drivers that contribute to the growth of the digital 3D Printing market.

Digital 3D Printing Market Regional Analysis

Global Digital 3D Printing Market, based on region, has been divided into the Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Middle East & Africa.

The Americas led the market and accounted for the largest share in 2018, owing to the existence of medical device companies and the rising prevalence of diseases along with increased adoption of treatment by patients. In North America, the US held the largest of the market share in 2018 owing to the presence of major market players, developed healthcare infrastructure, high awareness, and availability of advanced treatment options. For instance, in November 2015, a group of medical researchers from North Carolina’s Wake Forest University developed a method to print the 3D form of custom medications in the configuration of pills. As a result, increasing applications of 3D Printing is expected to drive the market growth.

Europe accounts for the second-largest share in the global digital 3D Printing market owing to the presence of favorable government initiatives & laws and target population base, rising prevalence of lifestyle-associated conditions, and the presence of developed economies such as Germany, the UK, and France. Since the ban on animal testing for cosmetics in 2013, the wellness industry had been a significant supporter of 3D Printing in Europe.

Asia-Pacific is estimated to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period due to the increasing per capita health spending, growing older population base, rising incidence of accidents, and developing the healthcare sector in China, Japan, India, and Australia.

The Middle East & Africa digital 3D Printing market is segmented into two major regions, namely the Middle East and Africa. In this region, the Middle East is anticipated to dominate owing to the presence of countries such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and others. The Middle East and Africa has less economic developments and extremely low-income due to which the region accounts for the least market share but is expected to grow with the increasing cases of chronic diseases and demand for better treatments in countries.
