3D Printing Materials Market – Trends Forecast Till 2028

The global 3D Printing Materials market size is projected to reach USD 4.9 billion by 2026 at a CAGR of 23.7% from USD 1.8 billion in 2021 during the forecast period 2021-2028.

The major 3D printing material is made up of thermoplastics which is a class of plastic that has an ability to deform when heated and take up the shape of the mould when cooled down. Some other raw materials such as metal, graphite, and carbon fiber are also used for 3d printing. The two most common types of plastics used for 3D printing are PLA or Poly Lactic Acid and ABS or Acro nitrile butadiene styrene.

With increased demand from the aerospace and defence industry along with the mass customization along with the governmental initiatives are some of the factors that have supported long-term expansion for 3D Printing Materials Market.

The COVID-19 pandemic is causing widespread concern and economic hardship for consumers, businesses, and communities across the globe and has thus negatively impacted the 3D printing market as well. There has been decreased demand from the end user industry and also the disrupted supply chains have forced the workers to operate at zero or partial capacities.
