The recent outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected the growth of the global 3D printing gases. 3D printing technology is widely used in the construction, design, manufacturing, and healthcare sectors. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in the construction and manufacturing sectors has adversely affected the market growth of the 3D printing gases market. The lockdowns and isolations imposed by the government in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, resulted in the shutdown of manufacturing plants and production units, hampering the construction and production sectors. The stoppage of production and construction processes, due to the lack of labourers also decreased the market demand for 3D printing gases. The imbalance and large gap between supply and demand also resulted in the downfall of the 3D printing gases market in the COVID-19 period.

Increasing demand for 3D printing using inert gases.

The rising demand for 3D printing using inert gases is one of the major factors fuelling the market growth of the global 3D printing gases market. The growing need for inert gases in the aerospace and healthcare industries to achieve the high-tolerance standards necessary in 3D printing is projected to drive the market forward. Inert gases provide an inert atmosphere during the printing process, which helps to reduce the oxidation of sintered parts by lowering the oxygen concentration and creating a stable printing environment by maintaining a steady pressure in the print chamber. The stable nature showcased by inert gases used in 3D printing is rising the demand for 3D printing using gases. Gases like argon and nitrogen have a variety of uses, mostly because they improve the overall quality of 3D-printed items. The efficiency and stability showcased by 3D printing with gases compared to others are increasing the demand for the process in certain industries like aerospace, healthcare, and construction.

Wide applications in the manufacturing and healthcare sectors.

The global 3D printing gases market is being driven by the increasing usage of 3D printing techniques in the manufacturing, consumer products, health care devices, automotive, aerospace and defence, and energy industries. 3D printing helps the healthcare business by allowing prosthetics and dentistry to be customized. It also makes the process of bio-printing human-sized bones, cartilages, and muscles using 3D printing technology incredibly simple and effective. The usage of 3D printing gases in healthcare, design & manufacturing, automotive, consumer items, education & research, and aerospace & military has increased as a result of technological advancements and the rate of industrialization in emerging countries. The rising demand for 3D printing using gases in the medical sector is also expected to bring more opportunities and growth in the 3D printing gases market in the upcoming years.

North America is the dominating region.

Geographically, North America is the region having the largest market share in the 3D printing gases market. The large market share of the area can be attributed to the existence of prominent companies in the North American region that focus primarily on undertaking rigorous research and development operations in this industry. Asia-Pacific area has the fastest-growing market for 3D printing manufacturing gases since developing countries like China and India are expected to be emerging markets.
