Global 3D printer market on a growth spiral

17 July 2017



The global 3D printer market continues to grow with sales up 18 per cent in 2016.

Demand for 3D printers is strongest within the Asia-Pacific region. However, the North American market, despite a small recovery, still saw sales down from the previous 12-month period, according to research firm IDC.

Shipments in specialist manufacturing for the technology sector saw the largest growth at 30 per cent. Meanwhile, sales of powder-bed fusion-based printers increased by almost 40 per cent.

Keith Kmetz, program vice president-3D printing at IDC, said:“3D printing will enable revolutionary opportunities in commercial and industrial applications, with earliest success in manufacturing and healthcare. Our predictions create a framework for IT and line-of-business executives to plan and execute technology-related initiatives in the year ahead.”

According to IDC, ‘Discrete Manufacturing’ is the dominant industry for 3D printing, delivering more than two thirds of all worldwide revenues through much of the forecast.

While all the industries examined will experience revenue growth of more than 100 per cent over the forecast period, healthcare will leap from the number five position in 2016 to the number two spot in 2020, with revenues growing to more than US$3.1 billion.

IDC said the gains in both software and on-demand parts printing are being driven by the rapidly expanding use of 3D printing for design prototyping and products that require a high degree of customisation in non-traditional environments.

Another report on the 3D printing market by Markets and Markets predicts that the sector will be worth around US$30 billion by 2022.

The desktop 3D market is expected to see the highest growth rate with the education sector driving growth.
Laser metal deposition (LMD) printing technology will also continue to grow, resulting in a reduction of material waste during the printing process, tooling costs and cost of repairs.

3D Food Printing Market Foreseen to Grow Exponentially over 2016-2026

Submit the press release

New York City, NY — (SBWIRE) — 02/27/2017 — The market of global 3D food printing is anticipated to be driven by increasing market need for mass customization, ability of 3D printers to prepare food which is convenient and time saving, customization of nutrients required by an individual in their food products, getting the benefit of alternative ingredients and others. Now a days all the microwave made pancakes which are available in Netherlands are printed. As the world is getting more self-centered they are going for more customization and so their food. Market need for mass customization is increasing and is going for different shapes, colors, flavors, nutrition and textures. This customization is done mainly on food products like coffee, hamburgers, ice cream, cake, biscuits, confectionary and others. Technology is also one of the driving force behind 3D food printing market. With the enhancement in technology came up micro oven in every home and now 3D food printing machine is coming up. The market of global 3D food printing is anticipated to have restraints too. Many of the ingredients which are used for 3D printing are converted to paste. There are limited food which can be made into paste. 3D food printing is also a slow process which requires cooling many a times before the food can be consumed. Necessity of 3D food printing is that it can overcome the trend of prevailing food customization techniques which is less effective and at the same time its manufacturing cost is high.

3D food printing is bringing 3 dimensional digital design into real world object which is edible. 3D food printing is healthy and good for environment as it converts proteins from algae, beet leaves or insects into tasty products. One of the most important benefit of 3D printing is that it provides door for food customization according to the preferences and needs of individual. 3D food printing gives rise to new flavors, textures and shapes to provide new and unique eating experiences. 3D food printing is done by machines called 3D printers. 3D printed foods have to please the eyes and mind both at the same time. Even NASA is now looking for ways to 3D print food in space.

The global 3D food printing market is segmented on the basis of application, ingredients and region. 3D printed foods are applied and used to make modern food designs which gives pleasure to eyes before it can be consumed. Another application of 3D printed food is that it serves food for the elderly, for instance, 3D printed carrots are easy to chew and also easy to swallow. Few other applications are domestic cooking, catering services, personalized chocolates and homogeneous snacks. Product types where 3D printing is used are bakery products coffees, ice creams, confectionary and others. Among the product type confectionary segment is expected to grow at a faster CAGR over the forecast period. As chocolate, confectionary products are very popular among the children and it also attract elderly people. Edible ingredients can be segmented into dough, fruits & vegetable, proteins, sauce, dairy products, sugar, carbohydrates, yard, algae and others.

Geographically, the global 3D food printing market can be divided by major regions which include North America, Latin America, Western and Eastern Europe, Asia-Pacific region, Japan, Middle East and Africa. Europe is the market leader in 3D food printing. In Netherlands all the microwave pancakes which are available in supermarkets are printed. In Spain, Natural Machines tried to bring the 3D food printing technology into the household. U.S. is also engaged in 3D food printing because there 3D printer maker 3D Systems along with Culinary Institute of America are setting many projects.

Polymer and Plastic 3D Printing Market Opportunities, Technologies, Materials and Revenue …

Opportunities Analysis and 10 Years Forecast for Polymer and Plastic 3D Printing Market is available in Polymer and Plastic 3D Printing Market Research Report at store.

This press release was orginally distributed by SBWire

Pune, Maharashtra — (SBWIRE) — 02/20/2017 — Over the last two years, the polymer 3D printing industry has been in a state of tumultuousness marked by dozens of new competitors entering the market, partnerships for development of materials, and development of new print technologies. All of these and more have combined to create a whirlwind market that, in spite of so much activity and investment, has struggled to maintain its growth pace from 2012 through 2014 as customers have backed off purchasing in the traditional segments while adopting a ‘wait and see’ strategy. The demand for additive manufacturing in general has perhaps never been higher, but challenges associated with such rapid evolution in polymer and plastic 3D printing have suppressed growth in the face of historic interest in 3D printing at a professional level.
