Category : Semiconductor and Electronics | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC155

3D printing is a technique of creating a three-dimensional object in which consecutive layers of material are generated under computer control. These objects can be of different geometry or shapes and are created from electronic data source, for instance, an additive manufacturing file or digital model data or 3D model. This technology is used for rapid prototyping, mass customization, mass production and speedy manufacturing. Key end-users of this technology include industries such as automobile, footwear and architecture. The use of this technology in different industry verticals is increasing due to the simplicity of its usage as compared to other traditional methods. Thus, the demand for 3D printing is predicted to boost at a high pace in both commercial printing as well as personal printing applications in the near future.

Investments by government in 3D printing projects, affordability and ease of generating customized products and benefits derived from 3D printing are some of the major factors propelling the market growth. With the advancement in technology along with declining prices of 3D printers, it is anticipated that the market for 3D printing will grow at a high rate. Also, multi-jet printer which uses more than one color and material at a time and accessibility of open software such as Spark by Autodesk and Photoshop by Adobe are bolstering the demand of these printers for personal use. However, the inability for quick production in bulk is a major reason hindering the market growth.
