Materials & Software

Current updates of 3D printing – Materials & Software

Date: To Be Decided Soon

The 3D printing materials market is segmented into four types: plastics, metals, ceramics, and others. Each type of materials include a wide range of products such as plastics include ABS, PLA, Nylon, Photopolymers and Others; Metals include Steel, Silver, Gold, Titanium, Aluminum and Others; Ceramics include Glass, Silica, Quartz ad Others; and Others include Laywood, Wax, Paper and Others. These individual 3D printing materials have application specific demands that are differentiated by placement, cost, and efficiency. Plastic materials are useful in applications such as consumer printing and few industries where consumer products are manufactured. Metals are especially used in high-end industries such as aerospace & defense, automotive, medical & dental, etc. Ceramics are useful in home decor, dine table, art & sculpture, and others. The use of these materials increases the efficiency of their applications.

Researches say the Global 3D printing materials market to reach $1,245 million by 2020. The market for 3D printing plastic materials in terms of value is expected to reach $671.90 million by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 20.3% from 2016 to 2020.

3D printing is a great tool and has emerged as manufacturing technology with a thousand uses spread across a very diverse user base. With the potential growth and progress it needs to find the best solutions for final results in the materials and software used. Since the basis of the final expected result will determined on this products and solutions. The ongoing development of new materials also opens new markets and it has a positive influence on the price level of the used materials.

Fine-tuning materials. The roads to success in the 3D printing sector will depend on fine-tuning materials to the needs of each application. This fine-tuning process will involve the type and the quality, strength and costs of materials, but also the selection of marketing channels and for example packaging of the end product. Since each user group and each application needs its own materials set, the market has huge potential with everyday a new company materials being added to the 3D printing market place. But simultaneously, it raises many associated questions: which developments can be expected in the near future? Which markets will be influenced on short term? How can materials be produced cost-efficiently?

Similarly in case of software, which also adds to the efficiency helping designer get its worth for the final make of the product.
