Global 3D Printing Materials Market expected to grow at a CAGR of 21.3% from 2018 to 2023

3D printing is a process of making three-dimensional objects with the help of the digital model of the objects. The process is also known as additive manufacturing. In this process, the object is created by making thinly sliced successive layers of material. 3D printing needs lesser amounts of materials to produce complex shapes than the traditional manufacturing method. 3D printing technology is gaining momentum due to its increasing use in various industry verticals including the aerospace & aviation industry. 3D printing materials, including metals, are used in manufacturing many aircraft parts such as wings, jigs, and engine parts.

The global 3D printing materials market was valued at US$ xx million in the year 2018 and is expected to reach US$ xx million by the year 2023, growing at a CAGR of approximately 21.3%. The increasing use of 3D printing technology in aerospace and defense, coupled with rising government investments in 3D printing technology, will propel the growth of the market. For instance, in August, 2018, the UK government announced an investment of 780 million euros for advanced manufacturing. This initiative will help the growth of additive manufacturing technologies.
