Dublin, Sept. 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Automotive 3D Printing Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027" report has been added to's offering.

The global automotive 3D printing market reached a value of US$ 2.13 Billion in 2021. Looking forward, the publisher expects the market to reach a value of US$ 7.39 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 23.04% during 2021-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Three-dimensional (3D) printing refers to automated additive manufacturing technology that assists in creating rapid prototypes for fabricating layer-by-layer materials to design patterns, physical models, and tooling components. It aids in creating various lightweight intricate geometric pieces, including internal channels and wire mesh, reducing prototyping cost and manufacturing complex parts, while ensuring minimal wastage of materials.

On account of these properties, 3D printing is extensively used in the automotive sector to enable automobile designers to validate prototypes, conceptualize, design and customize vehicle parts in a shorter period. At present, it is commercially available in metal, polymer and ceramics material types.

Automotive 3D Printing Market Trends:

The significant expansion in the automotive sector, along with the increasing demand for lightweight materials to enhance fuel efficiency in automobiles is primarily driving the market growth. Automotive 3D printing solution is widely adopted in the sector for manufacturing various complex parts of vehicles, while reducing lead time, which represents a key factor primarily driving the market growth.

This can be attributed to the various advantages, such as reduced capital investments and high performance, associated with the deployment of automotive 3D printing systems. In line with this, the introduction of fused deposition modelling (FDM) solutions for manufacturing prototypes and concept model parts is acting as another major growth-inducing factor.

The computer-aided system assists in deriving inputs from the processing unit, which further commands the model to start printing materials that are usually made from high-performance thermoplastics. Other factors, such as the emerging trend of customized automotive parts and extensive strategic collaborations amongst key players and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) for introducing innovative automotive 3D printing systems to meet the evolving consumer needs, are creating a positive outlook for the market.
