Rapid Liquid Printing Market Size, Share, Opportunities, COVID-19 Impact, And Trends By Offering (Printers, Services, Materials, Software), By Application (Prototyping, Functional/End-Use Part Manufacturing, Tooling), By Industry (Consumer Products, Fashion, Automotive, Healthcare, Aerospace & Defense, Utility, Construction, Others), And By Geography - Forecasts From 2021 To 2026

Published:  Oct 2021 Report Code: KSI061614141 Pages: 120

The Rapid Liquid Printing Market is expected to reach a market worth US$607.119 million in 2026, up from US$69.542 million in 2019, growing at a CAGR of 36.28%. The prime reason which is expected to drive the market growth during the forecasted period is the robust adoption of additive manufacturing across several industries verticals. Rapid liquid printing is the advanced and latest additive manufacturing method under which a liquid object is drawn in 3-D using gel suspension. After formulation in the gel, the object is removed, washed with water, and becomes usable. Increasing preference for 3D printing objects which are cost-effective is projected to drive the market growth during the forecast period. However, the high initial cost of the printer along with the requirement of technical knowledge for efficient printing may constrain the market growth.

Geographically, the rapid liquid printing market is divided into North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, and the Asia Pacific regions for the study. The North American rapid liquid printing market is expected to dominate during the forecast period, owing to state-of-the-art infrastructure facilities and early adoption of the latest technology also supports the market growth. The Asia Pacific and European region's rapid liquid printing market is expected to witness lucrative growth.    

Growth Factor

  • The growing adoption of 3D printing technology across several industry verticals will support the market demand for the rapid liquid printing industry.  

One of the key reasons which are expected to drive positive growth in the market for rapid liquid printing during the forecast period is the rising adoption of 3D printing additive manufacturing technology across several industry verticals. Construction, aerospace and defense, automotive, healthcare, and fashion industries are leading consumers of 3D printing additive manufacturing technology. Robust growth in these industries is projected to provide promising growth prospects for rapid liquid printing technology.

Market Restraints

  • The significant initial cost of rapid liquid printers may hamper the market growth

A prime hindrance facing the market for rapid liquid printing technology is the significant cost of printers. Owing to financial constraints, small and medium-scale businesses may find it difficult to finance the high initial cost of rapid liquid printers. Data from World Bank shows that small and medium enterprises account for 90% of global business. Financial constraints are expected to drive away from these businesses, decreeing the market prospects for the rapid liquid printing industry. 

Covid-19 Insights

The outbreak of the covid-19 virus led to a halt in operations across several industry verticals, including construction, fashion, automotive, utilities, and others. Shutdown and operation restrictions accompanied by supply chain constraints decreased the market demand for rapid liquid printing technology, thus negatively impacting the market.
