3D Printing Market to Exhibit a CAGR of 24.0% by 2028; Partnership of Ditto Eyeglasses and Materialise NV to Incite Business Development

July 14, 2021 | Information & Technology

The global 3D printing market size is expected to reach USD 68.71 billion by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 24.0% between 2021 and 2028. The growing acceptance of advanced technologies such as Industry 4.0, Smart Factories, Robotics, machine learning, and others will have a tremendous impact on the market growth, mentioned in a report, titled “3D Printing Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Component (Hardware, Software, Services), By Technology (FDM, SLS, SLA, DMLS/SLM, Poly jet, Multi Jet Fusion, DLP, Binder Jetting, EBM, CLIP/CDLP, SDL, LOM), By Application (Prototyping, Production, Proof of Concept, Others), By End User (Automotive, Aerospace, and Defense, Healthcare, Architecture and Construction, Consumer Products, Education, Others) and Regional Forecast, 2021-2028.” The market size stood at USD 12.57 billion in 2020.

Market participants all across the world have been compelled to cut their administrative costs as a result of the coronavirus crisis. Companies’ investments in new 3D printing technologies are expected to be limited as a result of lower operating expenses. This might have an influence on the expansion of the market. However, following COVID 19, manufacturers will prioritize 3D type of printing technology above other innovations such as robots, 5G, digital security, and artificial intelligence, among others. This indicates that businesses' increased expenditures in technology would likely boost 3D printing market growth in the foreseeable future.

Announcement of Innovative 3D Electronics Printer by Optomec to Augment Growth

Optomec, a Major provider of printing technology, has delivered an industrialized 3D Printed Electronics system to a large US medical company that will employ the equipment to mass-produce leading computerized imaging equipment. The strategic benefit is a $1 million contract that calls for highly sophisticated capability and industrial processes. The early request will use Aerosol Jet to directly print multi-layer 3D circuitry onto a structural component, replacing laborious integration of flex circuits." In comparison to previous approaches, this Additive Manufacturing methodology will bring cost savings and higher yield, and enhanced flexibility for next-generation designs. The new development of Optomec will spur opportunities for the market, as the new machine is ideally equipped for dealing with a diverse variety of medical device applications. Moreover, the Aerosol Jet technique can print conductive, insulating, adhesive, and biological materials in 3D space with dimensions as tiny as 10um at its core.
