3D printing - worldwide spending 2019

The 3D printing market is expected to grow by 21.2 percent year-on-year to reach 13.8 billion U.S. dollars by 2019. The market for 3D printers is projected to reach 5.3 billion U.S. dollars.

Market segmentation

This industry includes 3D printers, materials, software, and related services. It is estimated that printers will account for about half of the market revenue in 2022, but software and related services will also likely experience significant growth. What sounds even more impressive is that the markets for on-demand parts services and computer-aided design (CAD) software are expected to almost triple. Concurrently, discrete manufacturing is seen as the dominant industry for 3D printing, but the technology is also predicted to play a significant role in the healthcare sector.

 Material use

Plastics and polymers are among the materials that are most commonly employed in the field of 3D printing and additive manufacturing. However, a wide array of other materials such as metals or even human tissue can be used to produce prototypes, finished parts or, you guessed it, organ transplants.
