DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "3D Printing Plastics Market - Global Drivers, Restraints, Opportunities, Trends, and Forecasts up to 2022" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The Global 3D Printing Plastic Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 26.5% during the forecast period to reach $1.34 billion by 2022.
The market segmentation according to materials type is divided into key segments of commodity polymers, high performance polymers, bioplastics, and elastomers among others. The main application areas of 3D printing plastic materials are in aerospace & defense, automotive, and healthcare among others.
Globally, the demand for 3D printing plastic materials is high in economically developed countries, whereas the developing regions are catching up the pace. Extensive consumption of plastic materials comes from the aerospace and automotive domains due to changing product designs from time to time. Further, the light weight of the OEM components for better fuel efficiency to reduce carbon footprint is an additional factor boosting the exponential growth of 3D printing plastics in the next 5 years.
This growth is supported by lucrative, fast-growing technological industries, and the growing manufacturing market in these regions. Currently, North America is the global leader in the 3D printing plastics market from the demand side. The European region, on the other hand, has an advantage of having large manufacturing and consumption markets, thus providing the second largest contribution to the 3D printing plastics market. From the supplier side, Europe followed by Asia Pacific are the market leaders in the 3D printing plastics. The European market is also witnessing a capital influx in 3D printing technology from Tier 1 companies, which is increasing the regional competition.
Some of the key players in the 3D printing plastics market are Stratasys, SABIC, DOW Chemicals, BASF, and 3D Systems.
