Global Polymer Additive Manufacturing Markets and Applications (2020 to 2029) - 3D Systems, Arkema, BASF & BigRep Among Others - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "Polymer Additive Manufacturing Markets and Applications: 2020-2029" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

This is the fourth annual market study on Polymer Additive Manufacturing Markets. The report looks at the global economic impact of polymer 3D printing including, for the first time, a deep analysis of the opportunities presented by revenues associated with 3D printed parts. Driven in the long term by massive opportunities in direct AM production, the analyst now expects polymer 3D printing to generate as much as $11.7 billion in 2020 including sales generated by polymer AM hardware and all associated material families.

Additive manufacturing's value proposition is clearest within its applications. For this report, the analyst has developed a new model that takes into consideration multiple variable - including average part weight and cost - and data collected through the research conducted in several recent vertical segment reports focusing on automotive, aerospace and consumer products among others, in order to assess the revenues or revenue-equivalents of 3D printed parts - including prototypes, molds/casts, tools and directly 3D printed final parts.

In this report we present all the key revenue categories considered in this report. Hardware is divided into four main hardware families currently processing polymers, with photopolymerization now expected to emerge as the primary revenue opportunity. Materials are subdivided into technology and/or form factors, with photopolymers emerging as the primary revenue opportunity at the end of the forecast period. Finally, parts are calculated as a complex function of material consumption and are subdivided into vertical adoption segments, with service bureaus representing the primary revenue stream throughout the forecast period.
