Dublin, March 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global 3D Printing Materials Market by Form (Powder, Liquid, Filament), Type (Plastic, Metal, Ceramic), Technology, Application, End-Use Industry (Automotive, Aerospace & Defence, Healthcare, Consumer Goods, Construction), and Region - Forecast to 2027" report has been added to's offering.

The global 3D printing materials market is projected to grow from USD 2.5 billion in 2022 to USD 7.9 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 25.6% during the forecasted period.

In terms of value, metals accounted for the largest share of the overall 3D printing materials market

The aerospace & defense end-use industry is one of the early adopters of 3D printing metal materials, and various countries have approved the adoption of 3D printing using metal. For instance, in June 2020, IAI produced SkysPrinter, the first fully 3D-printed drone for Israel for the defense department. The UAV was made from 26 parts 3D printed using metal, nylon, carbon, and other complex materials. Along with aerospace & defense, the automotive sector is also one of the prominent users of metal materials. Various automobile manufacturers have adopted 3D printing to produce car body parts.

During the forecast period, the 3D printing materials market in the automotive industry is expected to register the second-highest CAGR

In the automotive industry, 3D printing has primarily been used for rapid prototyping and testing of automotive components. 3D-printed automotive prototypes are created primarily to study the feasibility of automobiles through live testing. The automotive industry was one of the first to use 3D printing technology for prototyping purposes. Using this technology, it has already printed a complete car. Some luxury car manufacturers in Europe and North America have already adopted 3D printing technology for the mass production of automobile components.

During the forecast period, the 3D printing materials market in Asia-Pacific is projected to register the highest CAGR

Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing market and the third major consumer of 3D printing materials globally. The 3D printing materials market in the Asia-Pacific is considered for China, Japan, South Korea, India, and the Rest of Asia-Pacific. The Asia-Pacific region is an emerging and lucrative market for 3D printing materials owing to industrial developments and improving economic conditions. This region constitutes approximately 60% of the world's population, resulting in the growth of various industries such as automotive, consumer goods, and construction.
