                                              Abstract, Snapshot, Market Analysis & Market Definition: Global 3D Printing Market

The global 3D printing market was assessed to be USD 7.01 billion in 2017. It is expected to expand at a CAGR exceeding 16.5% from 2018 to 2025. Aggressive research and development in three-dimensional printing and growing demand for prototyping from healthcare, automotive, and aerospace and defense among other industry verticals are expected to drive the market growth.
3D printing (3DP); also called as additive manufacturing, involves a layer-by-layer addition of material to form an object referring to a three-dimensional file with the help of a software and a 3-dimensional printer.A relevant 3D printing technology is then selected from the available set of technologies to implement the process. The last step involves deployment of this process across different industry verticals as per requirement.
The deployment of 3D printing includes providing services, such as consultation, solutions, installation, and customer support. It also involves handling issues related to copyrights, licensing, and patenting. 3D printing benefits manufacturers in terms of prototyping, designing, and modeling structures and end products. It also reduces time to market. As a result, production expenses have reduced considerably and the manufacturers are able to offer better products at reasonable prices.
However, the prevailing misconceptions with respect to the process of prototyping among small and medium-scale manufacturers may hinder the adoption of this technology to an extent. Moreover, lack of technical knowledge and a looming standard process controls are expected to restrain growth of the market over the forecast period.
