Applications of 3D Printing, a $7B Market by 2025 #engineering

The global market for 3D printing is set to reach at least $7 billion by 2025. Existing applications will continue to expand but many emerging applications will also be commercialised. As early as 2020, new applications of 3D printing will begin to displace even the highest-value existing applications. By 2025, most of the market value in 3D printing will be from applications that are not commercially available today. The full picture, from aerospace to biotech, is given in the new IDTechEx research report, Applications of 3D Printing 2014-2024 . Established users of 3D printing, such as the aerospace and automotive industries, will continue to expand their use of 3D printing for mundane applications such as prototyping and tooling. The use of 3D printing to manufacture critical production components will grow in the low-volume high-margin sectors, most notably the space a...
