REPORT HIGHLIGHT

The 3D printing metals market is estimated to represent a global market of USD 226.8 million by 2017 with growth rate of 28.4%.

Market Dynamics

Over the last couple of years, 3D Printing technology has become very popular and is poised for an impressive growth over the future period. Today, the metal material is the fastest growing segment of 3D printing technique. The emergence of new technologies is transforming the landscape of this industry. For instance, in February 2018, Stratasys launched new metal 3D printing platform which provides an effective solution for short-run production applications for industries such as defence, machining, and automotive. This platform is developed based on the company’s proprietary jetting technology and thus offers high part quality and competitive costing. Such introductions would, in turn, develop a healthy platform for the industry to grow strongly. However, the high cost is anticipated to restrain the growth to some extent.

Product Takeaway

The market, by product, is bifurcated into Nickel, Aluminium, Titanium, Steel, and others. Types segment is categorized as Powder and Filament. Powders accounted for the largest share (over 90%) in 2017. Introduction of novel products helped this segment to capture significant revenue share. For instance, Sandvik, engineering group in metal-cutting, materials technology, and rock excavation, offers gas atomized metal powder, specially designed for 3D printing and rapid prototyping for application in medical and aerospace industries. Furthermore, availability of low-cost metal powders coupled with a range of applications of it into medical, jewelry, automotive and aerospace industry further provide a healthy platform for this segment growth.

Application Takeaway

In terms of application, the industry is divided into Automotive, Medical, Aerospace, and others. Of this, Aerospace application captured the largest share in 2017 and is projected to dominate the market during the study period. Aerospace industry includes a range of industrial, military and commercial applications. 3D printing technology has become a driving force in minimizing the weight of aircraft’s payload. For example, Stratasys Fused Deposition Modeling printers allow streamlined design and complex geometries with fewer components and reduced weight enabled by 3D printed technology.

Key Vendor Takeaway

Small-scale and large-scale companies such as ExOne GmbH, Materialise, Renishaw, Arcam AB, and Optomec, Inc. are operating in this industry. The market is fragmented in nature and the degree of competition has intensified further due to the entry of a large number of players into this market. Companies are engaged in strategic product development and mergers & acquisitions to capture large market share. For instance, in March 2018, Materialise become the first company across the globe to receive U.S. FDA approval for diagnostic 3D printed anatomical model for diagnostic purpose.

The market size and forecast for each segment and sub-segments has been considered as below:

  • Historical Year – 2014 & 2016

* Gathering data through secondary sources is only the first step. The ability to cross-refer market data through available secondary            information often conflicting across multiple sources is a key aspect of the added value we provide

In order to verify and validate secondary market data, we engage with the Key Opinion Leaders (KoL’s), operating in the respective markets, through phone calls, emails, and web-based survey responses. This platform help us validate our data in terms of accuracy and gain insight into the current market and future expectations. Furthermore, the obtained information guide us to understand several facets of the market with respect to manufacturers and buyers’ perspectives.

In addition, to assign weights to all the relevant market dynamics and parameters and quantify their market impact for generating projected market growth rate, we used advanced machine learning algorithms in order to collate essential market data. The machine learning method utilizes algorithms such as regression, correlation, and decision tree, among others, to derive the desired output. This tool help us in deriving highly detailed forecasts, profound knowledge of product demand, and others.

These collected data points are carefully filtered, analyzed, compared, and presented in an easy way to develop accurate research study. Furthermore, all collected data is subjected to undergo exhaustive review process at country level, regional level, and global level.

Market Forecast

Market forecast is primarily based on the year-on-year (YOY) growth rate. Data projection and future performance of each segment is analyzed based on the key aspects extracted from primary and secondary research results. Thus, data projection exhibits the assumption on how the market performs under microeconomic and macroeconomic parameters. Our market forecasting technique represents strategic conclusions which can play a crucial role for our client’s in making strategic marketing plans.

For forecasting, the following parameters were considered:

  • Market drivers and restraints along with their current and expected impacts
