Key Market Insights 

Mass Customization and Personalized Eyewear to Drive the Market Tremendously

3D printing in eyewear is gaining traction with increased adoption of additive manufacturing (AM) across various industry verticals. New trend of tailor-made eyewear that are comfortable to customer needs is expected to boom the market size in coming decade. 3D printing technology can be used to manufacture complex shapes that cannot be produced with conventional manufacturing technologies. These factors are expected to drive the market in near future. 

On the other hand, the global 3D printing in eyewear market is expected to be obstructed by several factors which is holding back its adoption. Current AM technologies produce rough and porous surface finish as compared to conventional production technology. Applying finishing process also increases production cost, thereby affecting the adoption at higher level. For bulk manufacturing of 3D eyewear, current AM technologies are not suitable and require further research and advancement. Moreover, only nylon is identified as an ideal material for final part production. Alternative materials are not widely implemented and requires deep research and testing for using it for final part production. In spite of all these hindrances, the market is poised to grow beyond US$ 2.56 Bn by 2027 with a CAGR of 24.42% from 2019 to 2027.

Material Type Analysis 

Nylon-12 Emerge as the Best Material for 3D Printing in Eyewear

Nylon-12 is abrasion resistant, tough and possesses great strength and durability. These properties make nylon-12 an ideal choice for 3D printing of an eyewear. In addition, nylon can be reinforced with carbon-fibre or glass-fibre, for manufacturing lighter parts with excellent mechanical properties. Also, the final product gives good surface finish ultimately requiring less post-processing. In all, nylon-12 is expected to keep its dominant position throughout the forecast period. However, companies are investing in R&D for developing new materials that are superior than nylon-12.

Regional Analysis 

Asia Pacific to Register the Highest Growth Rate during the forecast period

Asia Pacific is already a major parent market for eyewear and growing at the rate of approximately 14% annually. With the advent of 3D printing in eyewear, the region is expected to show similar growth during the forecast period. Large number of millennial population and their changing fashion trends will be the major driver for the market. Additionally, the region is also home to large number of ageing population. By 2030, some 60% of the total population aged over 65 will live in Asia. As the elderlies have high demand for glasses, it is expected to further drive the market growth. It is estimated that, the region will capture over 30% share of global 3D printing in eyewear market by 2027.
