DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Automotive 3D printing Market by Component (Technology, Material, and Services) and Application (Prototyping & Tooling, R&D and Innovation, and Manufacturing Complex Products) - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2017-2023" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
Additive manufacturing or 3D printing allows manufacturers to produce objects using a digital file and wide array of printing materials. Automotive sector, besides aerospace & defense, healthcare, and manufacturing industries, exhibits growth in adoption of the technology. The technology is useful for applications ranging from printing car parts and accessories to manufacturing complex parts in less time as compared to traditional printers. The automotive companies adopt this technology at a remarkable rate in an effort to reduce the manufacturing costs, increase production rate, and lower the material wastage. The 3D printing technology has redefined the process of designing, developing, and manufacturing products in the automotive industry. The technology is being used for producing lighter and complex parts & accessories at reduced costs. Automotive part manufacturers are using 3D printers for effective usage of materials, reducing the lead time, and efficient logistics management.
The automotive 3D printing market is segmented based on components, applications, and region. The components segment is further classified into technology, materials, and services. Based on technology, the automotive 3D printing market is divided into stereolithography, selective laser sintering, electron beam melting, fused deposition modeling, laminated object manufacturing, and others. These technologies follow additive manufacturing process in which a model is built by adding successive layers of material. Among these technologies, stereolithography is expected to play the most prominent role since it has revolutionized the speed and techniques of designing and manufacturing objects, thereby benefiting various industries significantly. Based on input materials, the 3D printing material market is segmented into polymers, metals and alloys, ceramic, and others. Polymers are most extensively used 3D printing materials in the current scenario.
