The automotive 3D printing market was valued at US$2.492 billion in 2021.

The rising adoption of 3D printing technology in the automotive sector for prototyping and tooling applications in order to reduce the costs and turnaround times for making prototypes is one of the major factors driving the demand for 3D printing in the automotive sector. The use of 3D printing by the OEMs at reduced cost with better flexibility and strength is further allowing the manufacturers to increase their profits, which were earlier done through outsourcing which further increased the manufacturing costs of the automotive. Similarly, the manufacturing of customized parts, reduction of human error and higher precision is also the key driver which is expected to augment the use of 3D printing in the automotive industry. However, the unavailability of skilled personnel can hamper the growth of the market to some extent during the forecast period.
