Growing Use of 3D Printing In Commercial Areas to Flourish Market

The global 3D printing market is categorized on the basis of use, technology, and application. By considering the use of 3D printing, this category is bifurcated into commercial use and personal use. Rapid growth in manufacturing, mass customization, rise in prototype, and bulk production are the factors responsible for using 3D printing for commercial use. As of 2016, this segment held more than half of the demand shares and the revenue was US$ 5.93 bn.

As per technology, the market is segmented into polyJet, stereolithography (SLA), selective laser sintering (SLS), fused deposition modeling (FDM), and others. Among these, polyjet is leading the market and accounts for 41% of the total market share.

In terms of volume, the FDM segment holds the highest number of shares. This dominance is due to the higher preference for personal and commercial use of FDM printers. The application of FDM is also significant in various industries ranging from automotive to consumer goods.

Based on application, the 3D printing market is segmented into medical, industrial and business machines, education, consumer products and electronics, architecture, automotive, aerospace, military and defense, and others. From all these segments, consumer products and electronics are dominating the market followed by the automotive sector.

The growth in 3D printing is expanding in the automotive sector as it is highly used for printing interior parts such as gearbox handle, gears, engines, shafts, brakes, and spare parts. It is also used to print external parts such as doors, window frames, steering handle, body parts, head, and taillights.
