DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "3D Printing Software 2018-2028: Technology and Market Analysis" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.
Interest in 3D printing has exploded following the expiration of key patents in 2009: key players have been quick to capitalise on this demand, some enjoying exponential revenue growth as a result. Although 3D printing hardware and materials have been the focus of considerable technological advancement over the past few decades, until recently, the supporting software, essential to obtaining high quality prints, has not received an equivalent level of interest.
Prior to this explosion of interest, the 3D printing software market was characterised by multiple free and open source build processors, with one or two organisations catering to the industrial user with commercial offerings. In 2017, the landscape has changed considerably: there have been several new entrants following acquisition of smaller start-ups with both established CAD/PLM developers and 3D printer manufacturers keen to carve out a share of this rapidly growing market. The push to develop software that enables Design for Additive Manufacture for users looking to fully leverage the design freedoms offered by 3D printing is one of the key drivers of this growth. Given these market trends, the analyst forecasts that the global market for 3D printing metals will grow at a CAGR of 22% and will be worth $966 million by the year 2028.
This report forecasts the overall 3D printing software market to 2028, with in depth SWOT analyses of the major CAE, CAM and workflow management products available on the market today. The current state of the 3D printing software market is analysed, and long-range forecasts from 2018-2028 for revenue per annum segmented by commercialised CAE, CAM and workflow management product groups are evaluated.
