Consumer & Industrial-major market for 3D printing materials

The 3D  Printing  Materials  Market is segmented into four types: plastics, metals, ceramics, and others. Each type of materials include a wide range of products such as plastics include ABS, PLA, Nylon, Photopolymers and Others; Metals include Steel, Silver, Gold, Titanium, Aluminum and Others; Ceramics include Glass, Silica, Quartz ad Others; and Others include Laywood, Wax, Paper and Others. These individual 3D printing materials have application specific demands that are differentiated by placement, cost, and efficiency. Plastic materials are useful in applications such as consumer printing and a few industries where consumer products are manufactured. Metals are especially used in high-end industries such as aerospace & defense, automotive, medical & dental, etc. Ceramics are useful in home decor; dine table, art & sculpture, and others. The use of these materials increases the efficiency of their applications.

Global  3D  printing  materials  market  to  reach  $868  million  by  2018

The market for 3D printing plastic materials in terms of revenue was worth $183.0 million in 2012 and is expected to reach $582.9 million by 2018, growing at a CAGR of 23.4% from 2013 to 2018. The North American region dominated the 3D printing materials market revenues in 2012. Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at a high CAGR from 2013 to 2018, followed by the North American region. Europe is expected to be the next fastest growing market, with a CAGR of 17.8% from 2013 to 2018, owing to rising consumption in this region, where end-user markets of 3D printing materials are growing steadily, especially in manufacturing industrial and consumer products. The ROW market is expected to grow the least, compared to other regions in terms of revenue.

North America & Asia-Pacific accounted for more than 68.0% of the 3D printing materials revenue in 2012

North America is the prime consumer of 3D printing materials, globally. The Asia-Pacific region is the second largest, globally. North America and Asia-Pacific together accounted for 68.0% of the 3D printing materials revenue in 2012. North America and Asia-Pacific are the largest consumers and are expected to compete with each other to dominate the market by 2018, with advanced technological developments in 3D printing materials for end-users. Asia-Pacific is expected to dominate the North American market by 2018, with high investments from manufacturers due to growing demand.
