3D Printing Filament Market – Trends Forecast Till 2028

The global 3D Printing Filament market size is projected to reach USD 2.6 million by 2026 at a CAGR of 29% from USD 751 million in 2021 during the forecast period 2021-2028.

A 3D printing filament is made up of thermoplastics and is used as a feedstock for the 3D printers. The commonly available size of the filament is 1.75 and 2.85 in diameter. Two most common types of filament types are acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) and polylactic acid (PLA). Where PLA is easy to print and biodegradable ABS is more durable and is also impact resistant and are thus used as per the purpose of serving.

The surge in demand for 3D printed filaments in aerospace industry and also the surge in use pf the filaments for mas communications are some of the factors that have supported long-term expansion for 3D Printing Filament Market.

The COVID-19 pandemic is causing widespread concern and economic hardship for consumers, businesses, and communities across the globe and has thus impacted the 3D printing filament market as well. The production plants located over various countries were impacted. To add on the headquarters and the subsidiaries were also impacted. However, the 3D printing filament manufacturer offered the printing for various medical applications and devices such as face masks, swabs, and ventilator spilters.

3D Printing Filament Market Analysis

North America is expected to be the largest market of 3D Printing Filament during the forecast period. The increased use of 3D printing filaments for printing on various medical devices like masks, ventilators etc. along with surge in use for printing of implants, prosthetics and various other components have led to growth in the commercial refrigeration equipment in the region.
