Market Highlights:

Military 3D Printing Industry Trend Size is estimated to reach USD 6.230 Billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 28% during 2018-2027

3D printing is the process of building three-dimensional objects and creates lightweight aircraft parts. The growing capabilities in additive manufacturing have led to the increasing demand for the development of 3D printing. However, some shortcomings such as the high cost of 3D printing parts and lack of standard process control will restrain the growth of this market. The market for military 3D printing is estimated to witness a CAGR of 28% during the forecast period.

Meanwhile, in 2017, Stratasys Ltd signed a contract with Airbus to produce 3D printed polymer parts for A350 XWB aircraft. In 2015, 3D Systems signed a contract with Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) to develop advanced aerospace and defense 3D printing manufacturing capabilities. Moreover, the emergence of 3D printing in the product development stage for defense companies has boosted the Military 3D Printing Industry Trend.
