Published:  Aug 2021 Report Code: KSI061612113 Pages: 126

The 3D printing as a service market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 19.25% during the forecast period to reach US$38.611 billion by 2026, from US$11.259 billion in 2019.  3D printing is emerging as a technologically advanced printing process across various industry verticals. In this process, the printer turns the object under consideration into 1000s of tiny slices and then constructs it from bottom to top, slice by slice. These tiny slices then are glued together by the printer to construct a replica of the object. This form of printing is increasing its adaptability across various industry verticals, which is expected to drive the growth of the market during the forecasted period. Furthermore, the rising advent of other technologies, such as cloud-based printing, further supports the market growth.

3D printers are costly and require a significant initial investment. Furthermore, this type of printer has notable maintenance costs, which adds to the trouble of the company. Hence, to reduce cost, companies intend to outsource the printing operation which is time effective and cost convenient. The printing outsourcing business is emerging a new opportunity for 3D printer owners to keep up with the cost of the printer. Further, it saves the company, outsourcing the process, from spending extra money or time. It is estimated that the rising outsourcing of non-core business operations is going to support the market growth of 3D printing as a service. Moreover, a rising number of players in the outsourcing service market are projected to diversify the options available for the users and increase the market prospects significantly.

Robust growth in the end-user industry is expected to support the market growth during the forecasted period.

3D printing technology is increasingly gaining fame as an alternative across several industry verticals, which is expected to create robust demand for the market. It is expected that robust growth in the end-user industry will drive the market growth during the forecasted period. the global 3D printing as a service market is segmented, based on end-user industries, as healthcare, automotive, aerospace and defense, construction, and others.  

The aerospace and defense industry is growing at a lucrative rate owing to increased international trade and tourism, creating humongous demand in the industry. Furthermore, growing disposable income has increased the demand in the automotive industry, widening the market prospects during the forecasted period. The booming construction industry is also predicted to provide notable opportunities for the market.

Power bed fusion 3D printing technology is expected to hold a significant share of the market during the forecasted period.

Based on technology, the global 3D printing as a service market is fragmented as Vat photopolymerization, metal extrusion, material jetting, binder jetting, direct energy disposition, powder bed fusion, and sheet lamination.

The powder bed fusion 3D printing technology is predicted to hold a significant share of the market during the forecasted period. Increasing adaption of laser beam powder bed fusion 3D printing is expected to drive the segment growth. Electric beam powder bed 3D printer is expected to hold a notable share.

Key Development.
