The overall 3D printing powder market is estimated to grow $636.90M by 2020, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 24.40 percent between 2015 and 2022. The growing application of 3D printing in aerospace & defense market, mainly in the manufacturing of aircraft engines and components as well as the expiry of several technology patents are the main factors that are forecast to steer the increase of the 3D printing powder market.

Aerospace & defense segment is expected to contribute more important market share until 2020

The aerospace & defense application segment recorded for the biggest share of the 3D printing powder. This technology has the ability to bring revolution in the manufacturing sector. 3D printing has also been successively used in bones and dental crowns, cars and buildings, and so on. Factors, including quick technological developments in 3D printing, together with the expiry of process patents for powder-based technology are forecast to steer the overall 3D printing powder market.

North America (NA) is anticipated to be a main market for 3D printing powder until 2020

North America continent is forecasted to be a main market for 3D printing powder in 2015. Nevertheless, the 3D printing powder market is anticipated to penetrate emerging countries as well, where manufacturing sectors are not well developed. The 3D printing powder market in RoW is anticipated to grow at the highest compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2015 to 2020, with knowledge transfer taking place between industrial and emerging countries. The rise of the 3D printing powder market in Asia-Pac is anticipated to be driven by the rising presence of manufacturers in this area.

Metal powders segment is forecasted to account for the more significant consumption

The metal powders segment is expected to account for the more important consumption. Powder-based laser sintering technology is one of the affordable technologies, which uses metal powders to produce durable products. As many important patents associated to this technology have expired in 2014, it is expected that the powder-based laser sintering technology will be now accessible to different number of manufacturers, thus fueling the industry demand for powder-based printers in the next years. The reduction in technology cost is anticipated to lead to growing demand from other applications.
