U.S. 3D Printing Market Overview

Three dimensional printing is attained by additive processes that converts digital files into 3D objects. The materials such as liquid molecules or powder grains are joined or solidified under computer control to create a 3D object. Based on their properties such as faster speed as well as large volume while printing objects, they are used as production technology in various industries under the name of additive manufacturing. Further, 3D printing is used in both rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing.

Market Size and Forecast

The U.S. 3D printing market is anticipated to flourish at a significant CAGR over the forecast period 2017-2024. Further, 36% of the people find this form of printing more appealing to print products at home instead buying them from store which is one of the major factors that are expected to drive the overall market of 3D printing in U.S. over the forecast period.

U.S. is anticipated to account for a significant portion of market share in the 3D printing during the forecast period on the back of various factors such as growing technological advancements and implementation of 3D technology. Further, the profitability of the companies is on rise owing to increasing demand and their exponential revenue growth which is further expected to boom over the forecast period, overall boosting the growth of the market.

In addition, growing awareness and increasing number of industrialists that are driven towards 3D printing are anticipated to boost the market shares over the forecast period. Further, the difference between the import and export growth rate portrays a strong picture of the U.S. as the topmost revenue-generating country which is further predicted to hone the market growth in upcoming years.

Growth Drivers and Challenges

Increasing research and development expenditure is anticipated to intensify the growth of the U.S. 3D printing market during the forecast period. In addition, the total expenditure on research and development (R&D) is anticipated to grow at a rate of 2.9 % from 2017 to 2024. Further, with U.S. economy expansion and growth in the future, the profit margin of the businesses and corporates will increase. This is envisioned to bolster the growth of the market in the upcoming years.

Apart from this, increasing government support is anticipated to be the dynamic factor behind the growth of the market during the forecast period. In addition, the government has invested USD 30 million to set-up additive manufacturing innovation institute in Youngstown, Ohio. Further, increasing mass customization is expected to supplement the growth of the global 3D printing market during the forecast period.

However, lack of export assistance, high cost and unavailability of skilled labors are some of the key factors which are expected to limit the growth of U.S. 3D printing market in upcoming years.
