The PLA filament 3D printing material market was valued at US$313.234 million in 2021.

Polylactic Acid or polylactide (PLA) is a thermoplastic aliphatic polyester derived from biomass. The biodegradability and biological absorption properties of this material has resulted in an increasing application of this material in the biomedical field. The increasing demand for 3D printing solutions in the healthcare industry are thus projected to amplify the demand for PLA materials in the coming years. Furthermore, the growing movement towards environmental sustainability and increasing adoption of biodegradable materials is also projected to positively amplify the demand for PLA material for 3D printing in the coming years. However, the availability of multiple substitute materials, is estimated to hinder the growth of the market in the coming years. Geographically, the European region is projected to hold a significant share in the market owing to the increasing adoption of 3D printing solutions in the healthcare industry, combined with stringent government regulations regarding the use of non-biodegradable materials.
