The 3D printing market for automotive is estimated to be 3.49 million kilograms in 2015, and is projected to grow to 11.53 million kilograms by 2020, at a CAGR of 26.99%.

Automotive OEMs have begun adopting 3D printing for rapid prototyping, rapid tooling, R&D, and manufacturing complex components. OEMs have a wide range of 3D printing materials to choose from, including metals, alloys, polymers, glass, and composites. The choice of material largely depends on the application. For instance, if an OEM wants to prototype a dashboard for a car, they could use thermoplastic as a print material, as it would offer more flexibility and rigidity, and if they want to prototype an engine component, they could 3D print on steel, which offers a high tolerance to temperature and pressure. Additionally, 3D printing in automotive reduces the time taken to prototype, the length of the supply chain, the cost of prototyping, and raw material wastage; these are also key drivers of the 3D printing in automotive market. Factors restricting the growth of the 3D printing in automotive market are lack of standardization of the control process and fluctuations in the availability and cost of print materials.

This report segments the 3D printing market for automotive on the basis of technology [stereolithography (SLA), laser sintering, electron beam melting (EBM), fused disposition modeling (FDM), laminated object manufacturing (LOM), three dimensional inkjet printing (3IDP), and other technologies], material [polymers, metals/alloys, and others (glass, ceramics, wood, composites)], application [prototyping and tooling, R&D and innovation, manufacturing complex components and others (customization, personalization, aftermarket)], and 3D printer market.

The report classifies and defines the 3D printing market for automotive, in terms of volume and value. Market size, in terms of volume, is provided in thousand kilograms from 2013 to 2020, while the market size, by value, is provided in terms of USD Million.

The 3D printing market for automotive in Europe is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR, by value, of 30.29% from 2015 to 2020.

The report also provides a comprehensive review of market drivers, restraints, opportunities, challenges, and key issues in the 3D printing market for automotive. Apart from analyzing the quantitative aspects of the market, the report also covers qualitative aspects, such as the value chain analysis and Porter’s Five Forces analysis.

The 3D printing market for automotive is dominated by a few major players, such as 3D Systems (U.S.), Stratasys (U.S.), Optomec (U.S.), ExOne (U.S.), and Arcam (Sweden). The key strategies adopted by these market players are mergers & acquisitions, new product development, and expansion.
