Report: Seven 3-D Printing Materials Expected to Have a Total Market of Over $8B
DUBLIN—December 9, 2014—Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "3D Printing Materials 2015-2025: Status, Opportunities, Market Forecasts" report to their offering.
This massive growth in the use and applications of 3-D printers is encouraging a massive growth in the market for 3-D printing materials. Detailed forecasts, using information from interviews with 50 key players in the industry and disclosed financial information, estimate seven key materials are expected to have a total market of over $8B by 2025.
This 132 slide report (PDF) covers the current and future status, opportunities and market forecasts of 3-D printing materials. It contains many illustrative and analytical figures and tables plus profiles of 16 companies, from across the globe, who supply a wide variety of materials for 3-D printing. Interviews with eight industrial end-users describe their experiences with 3-D printing and give insight into their needs.
This new interest inspired developments in many technologies to 3-D print a wider variety of materials. A brief overview of each of these technologies is outlined in this report. But not all materials are equal. This report outlines the advantages and disadvantages of printing in different materials, the applications of each, and technical data on the properties of 3-D printed materials, which often differ from their traditionally manufactured analogue. These new materials mean there has been space for many new companies, and also many acquisitions by 3-D printer manufacturers. Information on start-ups, closures, mergers and acquisitions is included.
