DUBLIN, October 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Desktop 3D Printer Market, By Technology, Light Polymerization, By Material, By Application and By Geography - Analysis & Forecast 2016-2022" report to their offering.
The global desktop 3D printer market is estimated to reach more than $2.35 billion in terms of revenue and around 2.6 million units in terms of sales volume by 2022.
A constant governmental support, decreasing costs, and growing demand of desktop 3D printers from various consumer sectors are some of the key reasons responsible for the rapid growth of this market. However, the market consists of certain constraints such as questionable quality of desktop 3D printers, limitations in build volume size, lack of consumer awareness, and compatibility of 3D printing materials, which are hampering its overall growth.
The global desktop 3D printer market has been tracked along the lines of its materials, technologies, application areas, and geography. Herein, the revenue generated from the various technologies based desktop 3D printers is tracked in order to calculate the market size. The revenue generated from various technology based desktop 3D printers namely - Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF), Stereolithography (SLA), Digital Light Processing (DLP), and Selective Deposition Lamination (SDL) among others, have been analyzed.
The FFF based desktop 3D printer market held more than 89% share of the market in terms of sales volume in 2015. Revenue generated for various desktop 3DP materials namely - plastics, photopolymers, composites, paper and wax among others have been analyzed. 3D printing plastics material is dominating the market and growing at a CAGR of 18.3% from 2016 to 2022.
The report has been further classified into various industrial verticals namely - education & art, fashion & aesthetics, toys & consumer devices, household goods and healthcare among others, in which fashion & aesthetics sector holds the largest share in terms of revenue. However, education & art is expected to grow largely in the forecast period to reach the highest sales volume by 2022.
Some of the key market players in the industry are: XYZprinting Inc., 3D Systems, Stratasys Ltd., Ultimkare, M3D, FlashForge, Formlabs, Tinkerine Studios Ltd., Markforged, Zortrax, Shining 3D and Robo 3D. These companies are aiming for more number of product launches, partnerships and mergers & acquisitions in order to expand their operations and to establish themselves in the global market.
