Published:  Nov 2022 Report Code: KSI061613022 Pages: 114

The fused deposition modeling 3D printing technology market is anticipated to increase at a CAGR of 26.78% to reach US$19,822.304 million by 2027, from US$3,765.240 million in 2020.

Fused deposition modeling (FDM) 3D printing, commonly referred to as fused filament fabrication (FFF), is a type of additive manufacturing (AM) technique used for material extrusion. FDM uses thermoplastic polymers in the form of filaments to manufacture parts layer by layer by selectively depositing melted material along a specified route. The high usability and improved usefulness of 3D printing complicated shapes have contributed to the technology's great popularity, and the same factors are expected to enhance demand for FDM technology in the years to come. The FDM 3D printing method has a sizable market share and is excellent for early prototyping. The potential for growth is enormous as desktop FDM 3D printing gains popularity among individuals, educational institutions, and the healthcare sector.

Raising customized products and technological improvements to expand the market

Increased need for customized products, technological improvements, and the expanding use of FDM printers across a range of industries are all contributing factors to the growth of the global FDM 3D printing technology market. FDM technology enables the production of intricate structures and voids that would otherwise be impractical at no additional expense to the manufacturer, with a shorter lead time, and with optimally customized parts. Engineers are looking for alternatives to metal parts to increase the overall effectiveness of a printed product, and FDM plays a big part in this. FDM is used to generate durable production parts for relatively low and short-run applications. It is also well-known for offering noteworthy performance at a reduced price and assisting small enterprises in streamlining their manufacturing procedures. The expansion of the worldwide FDM printing market is also being driven by the expanding usage of additive manufacturing technology for rapid prototyping. As a result, the global market anticipates a huge demand for FDM 3D printing technology as well as numerous opportunities.   

By Geography

Geographically, the Fused Deposition Modeling 3D printing technology market is segmented as North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. The North American and Europe segments hold a significant market share and are anticipated to grow rapidly because of their early adoption of the technology by multiple companies and the growing use of 3D printing technologies across numerous industries.
