Three-dimensional (3D) printing, also called additive manufacturing (AM), is the process of making a three-dimensional solid from a digital model by depositing successive layers of material in different shapes. The first working 3D printer was developed in the 1980s, but the high cost and limited range of applications of the earliest printers precluded their widespread use at the time.
The convenience to achieve various objects through 3D models developed by the computer system has caused the demand to surge and practice of using 3D printing. With lower costs and technological advancements, 3D printing technology has reached an inflection point which has put it within the reach of several consumer and industrial end-users. These end-user industries such as healthcare, aerospace & defense and consumer industry are driving increasing demand for 3D printing market.
The introduction of new 3D printing technologies such as the 3D inkjet printer has brought costs down. After a slow start, 3D printing is poised for rapid growth. It took the 3D printing industry more than 20 years to reach a market value of $1 billion; this occurred in 2009. Only three years later, in 2012, the market value reached $2 billion. This report projects that the market will be valued at more than REDACTED by 2023.
