3D Printing Material Market: Introduction3D printing materials are utilized to make a 3 dimensional object where consecutive layers of specific material are designed to manufacture another object. 3D printing involves various processes for creating 3D printing material including fused filament fabrication (FFF), selective laser melting (SLM), stereo lithography (SLA) and among others. Digital file containing information for configuration of desired object and materials utilized act as intermediate between resultant product and 3D printers. 3D printing materials are utilized in three forms i.e., filament, powder, and liquid. Polymers (plastics), ceramics, and metals, among others are key materials utilized 3D printing. Polymers are most commonly utilized printing materials. Presently, across the globe 98% of hearing aids are manufactured using 3D printing process. Smartphone producers are also using these 3D printing technologies to manufacture several components of smartphones. 3D printing materials are majorly utilized in the aerospace & defense industry. Metal powders such as nickel, titanium, aluminum, stainless steel, and others are utilized various application in aerospace & defense sector, as these materials has as ability to withstand extreme conditions. Medical & dental sector is another major application that employ 3D printing technology. Various medical products including surgical equipment, tissue engineering products, and implants and prosthetics are manufactured using 3D printing technology. In addition, 3D printing is used for technologies in the field of healthcare such as dental, cranio-maxillofacial, and orthopedic.

Below are the active patents related to 3D Printing Material Market.Patent Number: US7291002B2 Apparatus and methods for 3D printing Abstract The invention relates to apparatus and methods for producing three-dimensional objects and auxiliary systems used in conjunction with the aforementioned apparatus and methods. The apparatus and methods involve continuously printing radially about a circular and/or rotating build table using multiple printheads. The apparatus and methods also include optionally using multiple build tables. The auxiliary systems relate to build material supply printhead cleaning diagnostics, and monitoring operation of the apparatus. Application File Date: 2004-04-02 Application Granted Date: 2007-11-06 Current Assignee: 3D Systems Inc Patent Number: US9688022B2 Color or multi-material three-dimensional (3D) printing Abstract A three-dimensional (3D) continuous color printer includes one or more cartridges each with a building material stored therein, a mixer coupled to each cartridge, and a single printhead coupled to a mixer output, wherein the building material stored in the cartridge is transported to the mixer and the single print head to form a continuous color object. Application File Date: 2016-10-28 Application Granted Date: 2017-06-27 Current Assignee: San Draw Inc Patent Number: CN104327470A Modified PLA (polylactic acid) material for 3D printers Abstract The invention discloses a modified PLA (polylactic acid) material for 3D printers, which comprises the following components in parts by mass: 30-88 parts of PLA, 2-25 parts of toughener, 0.5-18 parts of nano oxide, 5-30 parts of lignin, 4-35 parts of polyacrylate, 1-12 parts of crosslinking agent, 2-20 parts of filler and 1-10 parts of coupling agent. The lignin can form a network structure to be dispersed inside the PLA structure, thereby enhancing the strength of the PLA through the network structure. The coupling agent is used for enhancing the dispersity of the filler in the PLA, thereby further enhancing the impact resistance of the filler reinforcing material. The nano oxide is fine particles (nanoparticles) with high rigidity, and the crack in the molecular structure derivates when meeting the nanoparticles in the expansion process, so that the energy is absorbed, thereby achieving the goal of toughening.
