World demand for 3D printers and related materials, including plastics, is predicted by US market researcher Freedonia (Cleveland, Ohio; www.freedonia.com) to increase 21% annually reaching USD 5 bn in 2017. The 293-page report, "World 3D Printing (Additive Manufacturing)", says plastics will continue to account for the majority of materials demand but forecasts faster growth for metals due to their greater strength and resistance as well as rapid gains in markets such as aerospace.

Freedonia Study: World 3D Printing (Additive Manufacturing) (3123)

Quote from article
Prototyping will remain the largest application but stronger growth will come from production and consumer uses as 3D printers will increasingly be used to manufacture direct production parts and finished goods. Some of the fastest growth will be seen in the medical and dental sectors, while other significant markets include consumer products such as jewellery, toys, fashion clothing and electronics as well as automotive and aerospace. Pauline Tung, an analyst with Freedonia, expects “greater adoption of additive manufacturing technologies as 3D printing speeds and material quality improve”.

The “World 3D Printing (Additive Manufacturing)” study from Freedonia Group presents historical demand data (2002, 2007, and 2012) plus forecasts for 2017 and 2022 by product, market, world region, and for 14 countries. This study also considers market environment factors, reviews technology, evaluates company market share, and profiles 40 industry participants worldwide such as EOS, Stratasys, and 3D Systems. While our analysis of association data, government statistics, and trade publications is important, nothing substitutes for the insights of key professionals within the industry. Forth-six in-depth interviews were conducted for this study, including with manufacturers, academics/research centers, end-users, associations, distributors, consultants, and service providers, among others.

The 3D printing market will grow rapidly in the next few years with demand for machinery expected to reach $5.0bn (€3.7bn) in 2017, according to a forecast from US research group Freedonia. This would represent an annual growth rate of 20.7% from a level of $1.95bn (€1.43bn) in 2012. The use of 3D printers for prototyping will continue to account for the majority of demand, but the more rapid growth will be seen in production and consumer applications, said Freedonia. 3D printers will increasingly be used to manufacture direct production parts and finished goods in a wide variety of applications.
