3D Printing Filament Market – Trends Forecast (2021-2028)

The 3D Printing Filament Market size is projected to reach a CAGR of 18.9% from 2021 to 2028.

3D printing filament is the thermoplastic feedstock for fused deposition modeling 3D printers. There are many types of filaments available with different properties, requiring different temperatures to print. The filament is commonly available in the two standard diameters of 1.75 mm and 2.85 mm. 2.85 mm filament is sometimes erroneously referred to as “3 mm”, but should not be confused with the less common filament size that actually measures 3 mm in diameter. Filaments made from materials such as plastics, metals, and ceramics are used in FDM/FFF technology that has a low price in comparison to other forms of 3D printing materials. These filaments are beneficial in the production of objects with complex structures.

Increasing applications in aerospace and defense industry for design communication and prototyping and increasing demand for high-quality print in automotive and industrial application are some of the factors that have supported long-term expansion for 3D Printing Filament Market.
