Demand for prototyping and functional prototyping to fuel SLS equipment market rise

The selective laser sintering equipment market is forecasted to be $339.50M in 2018 and is projected to extend $947.40M by 2023, for both equipment and material, increasing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22.80 percent between 2018 and 2023, because the industry for equipment, inclusive of SLS and DMLS, is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 27.5% during the forecast horizon. The increase of the SLS equipment market is propelled by the growing government investments in 3D printing projects and the ability of the SLS equipment to produce parts possessing good mechanical properties with no build support. Nevertheless, the lack of standard process control and difficulties in using SLS printing software inhibit the rise of the global market. Complex operation and high risk combined with SLS equipment are among the main challenges faced by actors in the SLS equipment market.

Increasing market for automotive, consumer goods, and healthcare and medical devices propels SLS equipment market increase

SLS equipment is extensively used in prototyping and functional prototyping of consumer electronic devices-e.g., developing prototypes for GPS products; designing perfume bottles; designing washing machines and dishwasher exterior bodies, among others. On top of, in the automotive market, SLS technology has opened new avenues at each stage of production of motor vehicles, from the functional prototyping phases, design, and tooling production to parts manufacturing; the automotive sector is one of the pioneers in the adoption of 3D printing in its processes. Also, SLS equipment helps in creating highly personalized 3D printed medical devices, patient-specific surgical simulation, and direct printing of individualized implants and customized instrumentation. The scope of SLS printing in the healthcare market includes medical products and dentistry.
