Consumer & Industrial-Major Market for 3D Printing Materials
The 3D Printing Materials Market is segmented into four types: plastics, metals, ceramics, and others. Each type of materials include a wide range of products such as plastics include ABS, PLA, Nylon, Photopolymers and Others; Metals include Steel, Silver, Gold, Titanium, Aluminum and Others; Ceramics include Glass, Silica, Quartz ad Others; and Others include Laywood, Wax, Paper and Others. These individual 3D printing materials have application specific demands that are differentiated by placement, cost, and efficiency. Plastic materials are useful in applications such as consumer printing and a few industries where consumer products are manufactured. Metals are especially used in high-end industries such as aerospace & defense, automotive, medical & dental, etc. Ceramics are useful in home decor, dine table, art & sculpture, and others. The use of these materials increases the efficiency of their applications.
Global 3D Printing Materials Market to Reach $408.5 Million by 2018
The market for 3D printing plastic materials in terms of revenue was worth $70.5 million in 2012 and is expected to reach $209.6 million by 2018, growing at a CAGR of 19.9% from 2013 to 2018. The North American region dominated the 3D Printing Materials Market revenues in 2012. Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at a high CAGR from 2013 to 2018, followed by the North American region.
