3d Printing Plastics Market

The latest research study “3D Printing Plastics Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027” by IMARC Group, finds that the global 3D printing plastics market size reached US$ 807.46 Million in 2021. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 2,811.14 Million by 2027, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 21.50% during 2022-2027.

Three-dimensional or 3D printing plastics represent several materials, including photopolymers, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) filaments, thermoplastics, and polyamide used in additive manufacturing procedures to develop products. They are mostly composed of various synthetic and semi-synthetic compounds derived from petrochemicals and natural sources.

3D printing plastics are lightweight, easily sterilizable, malleable, biocompatible, and provide enhanced thermal, chemical, and mechanical properties. They even aid in faster and easier design modifications or iterations, ensure effective mass customization of products, and offer assembly consolidations. As a result, 3D printing plastics find extensive applications across numerous sectors, such as automotive, healthcare, aerospace and defense, consumer goods, food and beverage (F&B), etc.

Note: We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

3D Printing Plastics Market Trends and Drivers:

The growing adoption of 3D printing technology across industries to promote digital product manufacturing over traditional methodologies, which include injection molding and subtractive composition, is among the key factors driving the 3D printing plastics market. Apart from this, the elevating awareness about the multiple advantages of 3D printing plastics, including flexibility, precision, fuel optimization, etc., owing to which the usage of polycarbonate and ABS materials in the F&B segment has intensified, is acting as another significant growth-inducing factor. In addition to this, the increasing uptake of the product in the aerospace and automotive industries to manufacture low-volume components at a reduced lead time and production costs is further stimulating the market growth.

Moreover, the development of bio-based grade plastic printing materials by leading manufacturers derived from natural sources, such as palm oil, castor seeds, starches, etc., is also positively influencing the global market. Besides this, the escalating product demand from the healthcare sector to manufacture orthodontics surgical implants and surgical instruments is expected to propel the 3D printing plastics market over the forecasted period.
