DUBLIN, Feb 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "3D Printing Materials 2017-2027: Status, Opportunities, Market Forecasts" report to their offering.
Key materials are expected to have a total market of over $24 billion by 2027
The market for thermoplastic filament is expected to reach over $6.6 billion by 2026.
Gone are the days of 3D Printing being synonymous with Rapid Prototyping; the days of Additive Manufacturing are here.
This report covers the current status and future opportunities of materials for 3D printing. It contains many illustrative and analytical figures and tables plus profiles of 29 companies, from across the globe, who supply a wide variety of materials for 3D printing.
This new interest inspired developments in many technologies to 3D print a wider variety of materials. A brief overview of each of these technologies is outlined in this report. This report outlines the advantages and disadvantages of printing in different materials, the applications of each, and technical data on the properties of 3D 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 3D printer manufacturers. Information on start-ups, closures, mergers and acquisitions is included.
This massive growth in the use and applications of 3D Printers is encouraging a massive growth in the market for 3D Printing Materials.
