Highlights

The global market for three-dimensional printing will grow from nearly $3.7 billion in 2016 to more than $10.4 billion by 2021, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 23.2% for the period of 2016-2021.

The printers segment will grow from $1.7 billion in 2016 to $4.5 billion by 2021, rising at a CAGR of 21.4%.

The services segment is expected to increase from nearly $1.1 billion in 2016 to $3.2 billion by 2021 with a CAGR of 24.5%.

STUDY BACKGROUND

Three-dimensional (3-D) printing, also called additive manufacturing, is the process of making a three-dimensional solid from a digital model by depositing successive layers of material in different shapes. The first working 3-D printer was developed in the 1980s, but the high cost and limited range of applications of the earliest printers seemed to preclude their widespread use. Since then, the introduction of new 3-D printing technologies such as 3-D inkjet printers has brought costs down. After a slow start, 3-D printing is poised for rapid growth. It took the 3-D printing industry more than 20 years to reach a value of $1 billion in 2009, but in 2012, it would reach $2 billion. This report projects the market to be worth more than $10 billion by 2021.
