According to According to, the demand for three-dimensional (3D), printing materials in the world is projected to reach US$ 17.51 Bn in 2032, in contrast to US$ 1.62 Bn in 2021.

The growing acceptance of 3D printing technology across the industries of industry, construction, medical, and many others is driving the demand for this technology. Driven by this, the 3D Printing Materials market is predicted to grow by over 24.3 percent CAGR during the period 2022-2032.

Modern technologies like 3D printing are gaining inroads into the automotive industry due to their superiority for mass production and less risk of introducing errors. It is becoming increasingly used for additive manufacturing of automobile components like front bumpers, suspension wishbones for suspension, the ducting of batteries, battery covers, and more.

So, the need for high-performance materials for the manufacture of these components is expected to generate significant revenue-generating opportunities in the market.

North America will be the most important market for the region and is expected to grow at a 24.3 percent CAGR up to 2032. The growing use of 3D printing technology for the construction of buildings across the U.S. and Canada is encouraging the sale of 3D printing materials.

In terms of material type, metals are projected to remain sought-after materials in the market, projecting sales to increase by 11.5 percent year-on-year (YoY) between 2020 through 2021. Surging demand for cobalt-nickel alloys as well as titanium, steel, and in 3D printing owing to their durability, strength and low carbon emission properties is driving the growth in the market.

A analyst believes that 3D printing technology will soon be used in aerospace and defense to create superior quality products that reduce time to production and also lower costs for labor. This will drive market growth.
