3D Printing Filament Market worth $2,552 million by 2025, at a CAGR of 28.1%

The report 3D Printing Filament Market by Type (Plastics, Metals, Ceramics), End-Use Industry (Aerospace & Defense, Medical & Dental, Automotive, Electronics), Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Mea, South America), and region – Global Forecast to 2025″, The 3D printing filament market in 2020 is estimated at USD 739 million and is projected to reach USD 2,552 million by 2025, at a CAGR of 28.1% from 2020 to 2025. Rising demand for mass customization across the end-use industries has been the major driver for the growth of the 3D printing filament market in order to provide easy production of complex geometries. FDM/FFF technology is the widely adopted printing method along with low price of printers and materials in comparison to other methods. Furthermore, outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic is anticipated to fuel the consumption of 3D printed products from FDM process in medical applications.

Some of the prominent key players are:

  • Stratasys Ltd. (US)
  • 3D Systems Corporation (US)
  • Koninklijke DSM N.V. (Netherlands)
  • Materialise NV (Belgium)
  • Evonik Industries AG (Germany)
  • Arkema SA (France)
  • Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC) (Saudi Arabia)

Recent Developments :

  • In June 2020,KoninklijkeDSM N.V. entered into an agreement to take over certain parts of Clariant AG’s (Switzerland) 3D printing business portfolio to expand rapid market-driven product development solutions. DSM acquired the 3D printing materials business of Clariant that allows DSM to provide rapid product development iterations for high-performance filaments and pellets based on application needs. The strategy enables DSM to strengthen its engineering grade filament, pellet, and powder portfolio.
  • In April 2020, Stratasys Ltd. entered into strategic partnership agreement with Origin to offer 3D printed nasopharyngeal swabs to the healthcare sector. Under this partnership, the company markets and promotes Origin 3D printed nasopharyngeal swabs to healthcare providers and testing centers in the US. This partnership is expected to help the company to improve its market position in the healthcare sector and expand its business applications.

Aerospace & defense segment accounts for the largest share of the 3D printing filament market

The aerospace & defense segment is estimated to lead the 3D printing filament market in 2020 in terms of value, due to the rising demand for lightweight and high strength printing material for mass customization of aerospace components and parts. Aerospace industry was the early adopter of 3D printing technologies for prototyping and commercial production of components and parts made from plastics and metals. Moreover, despite lockdown in several countries and restriction on travel and trasporation, manufacturer of aerospace parts and aircrafts gradually continue to operate their businesses. Although defense industry is a small consumer of 3D printing filaments, however, the industry has an undisrupted supply of filaments for use in prototyping spacecraft components despite the impact of COVID-19 outbreak.

Asia Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth in the 3D printing filament market during the forecast period.

The 3D printing filament market in the Asia Pacific region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2020 and 2025. China, Japan, India, and South Korea are estimated to be the fastest growing markets in the region for 3D printing filament during the forecast period. China and Japan were the largest consumers of 3D printing filaments in the Asia Pacific region in 2019. Outbreak of COVID-19 from China and the impact of coronavirus in Japan, South Korea, Autralia, and India has caused a trivial decrease in the consumption of 3D printing filaments. However, 3D printing filaments are widely being used in medical industry to meet the urgent demand from hospitals and other healthcare centers.
