3D Printing Composites Market By Type (Polymer Matrix Composites, Ceramic Matrix Composites, Metal Matrix Composites), By End-Use (Aerospace & Defense, Automotive, Electrical & Electronics, Healthcare & Medical) - Growth, Future Prospects And Competitive Analysis, 2017 - 2025

Published: Dec 2017 | Report Code: 58879-12-17

Currently, majority of the composite parts are made through highly labor-intensive manufacturing processes, which include hand layup, which results in lack of finishing leading to reduced applications in various industries. Composite industry has experienced many innovation and transformation in composite manufacturing process over last two decades. Industry such as automation are looking for shorter production time of composites and the process which reduces wastage during production. Here, 3D printing plays a vital role in delivering the customers’ expectation by making parts in lesser time with minimal wastage.

Use of composite materials in 3d printing is relatively low, however composite material is gaining popularity among researchers and industrial manufacturers. 3D Printing typically uses materials such as ABS, polyamide, polycarbonate etc. for prototyping and manufacturing components and parts. However, these materials lacks thermal, chemical and mechanical stability which is important for industrial application. Composites materials possess some superior qualities such as lightweight, high strength to weight ratio, chemical & thermal resistance, and stiffness which makes it suitable for various end-use industry such as automotive, aerospace & defense, electrical & electronics and others. The 3d printing composites market has been segmented on the basis of type, end-use industry, and region.

In terms of type, polymer matrix composites accounted for approximately 50% market value share in year 2016 of the global market and is projected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period 2017 to 2025. Polymer matrix composites market is mainly driven by the huge demand for carbon and glass fiber composites for prototyping and tool manufacturing applications. Polymer matrix composites is followed by ceramics matrix composites which is mainly used in aerospace industry owing to its high fracture resistant capabilities.

In terms of application, aerospace & defense accounted for the largest share in terms of value in 2016. 3d printing composites are used to print aircraft parts and are also used in the interior of the aircrafts. However, electrical & electronics end-use industry is expected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period. It is also estimated to be one of the largest consumer of 3d printing composites in 2017. The benefits offered by lightweight parts and functionally integrated components for aerospace and automotive industries has motivated the market players to shift from prototyping to production of parts and components using 3d printing technology.

In 2016, North America dominated the 3d printing composites market by region, accounted more than 30% of the market share, followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific. The U.S. is the largest national market for 3d printing composites. Factors such as growing competitiveness of the domestic manufacturing sector, huge investment in leading technologies has accelerated the growth of 3d printing composites in the country. Europe was the second largest consumer of 3d printing composites in 2016.

Major players operating in the 3d printing composites market are Advanc3D Materials, 3D Systems, EOS, EnvisionTEC, Stratasys, 3DXTech, Arvelo Labs, Cincinnati Incorporated, Graphene Labs, CRP Group, among others.

North America is projected to dominate the 3D-printing composites market during the forecast period. North America is also one of the largest manufacturer of the advanced composites globally. Moreover, research & developments projects are undertaken by the 3D printing technology provider also favor the growth of 3D printing composites market in this region. Europe held the second largest share of 3D printing composites market in 2016. In Europe, Germany is estimated to accounts for largest share in 2017.
