Top 17 3D Printing Materials Companies, Worldwide 2023: MarketsandMarkets 360 Quadrant Revealed

3D Printing is the process of creating a three-dimensional object (or 3D) from a digital model using plastics, metals, or ceramics. These materials are known as 3D print materials. Materials used for 3D printing include plastics, metals including powders, resins and ceramics. Materials for 3D printing come in many shapes and sizes. Designers and engineering professionals prefer to create prototypes that are functional using 3D-printed materials with similar or identical material properties. Plastics is the most common 3D printed material. It comes in a variety of forms, including filaments, resins, granules and powders.

The global market for 3D printing materials is expected grow from USD 2.5 billion The year 2022 will be the first time that this happens. USD 7.9 billion By 2027, the market is expected to grow at a rate of 25,6% CAGR. Factors such as the ability to develop customized products, reduced manufacturing costs, and reduced downtime can all be attributed to market growth. High materials costs and a lack of standardization in the process control are two of the factors that limit the market’s development.
