"Entry of big actors from polymer sector and availability of wide range of grades are the top drivers to the 3D printing plastics market"

The overall 3D printing plastics market, according to scenario one, is anticipated to rise at a CAGR (Compound annual growth rate) of 25.70 percent from 2015 to 2020, and is expected to reach $692.20M by 2020, because scenario two predicts market to attain $822.70M by 2020, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 34.60 percent from 2017 to 2020. A top driving factor for the increase ot the 3D printing plastics market are the decreasing crude oil price, which indirectly affects the plastics prices, and availability of wide range of grades as per various applications. The analysis includes the overall 3D printing plastics market broken down on the basis of type, form, application, end-user market, and area.

"ABS forecasted to grow at the highest CAGR (Compound annual growth rate)":

The overall 3D printing plastics market is classified based on various class. The types contain photopolymers, ABS, PLA, polyamide/nylon, and others. In the 3D printing plastics market, ABS is forecasted to grow at a significant pace during the outlook period. ABS is gaining popularity very quickly due to growing demand of ABS filament in FDM or FFM technology due to its mechanical properties over other general grades including PLA and nylon used in FDM. It is most commonly used in commercial applications.

"APAC the quickest-rising area in the 3D printing plastics market"

The sector in Asia-Pac is anticipated to grow at the highest compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2015 to 2020. The rise is assigned to different end-user sectors, including healthcare, consumer goods, and aerospace & defense in this zone. The 3D printing sector in this area is largely concentrated in South East Asian area, which is one of the leading industries in term of industrial application.
