Global Metal 3D Printer Market by Product Type, By Application, and Region/Country – Global Forecast to 2026

Metal 3D Printer Market By Type (Powder Bed, Powder Directed Energy Deposition, Wire Directed Energy Deposition) By Application (Medical, Aerospace & Defense, Automotive, Fashion & Aesthetics) And Region - Global Forecast 2026


Metal 3D printers enable rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing, to produce three-dimensional products, using digital model data from a 3D model. As opposed to subtractive manufacturing, these printers facilitate additive manufacturing by laying down successive layers of material. The global Metal 3D Printer Market is estimated to value US$ 0.8 Bn in 2017, and is projected to register a CAGR of 24.7 % in terms of value over the forecast period.

Global Metal 3D Printer Market Dynamics:

A major factor driving growth of the global metal 3D printer market is various advantages of metal 3D printer over conventional manufacturing processes. A range of products of varying designs can be printed using a 3D printer and printing materials. Popularity of metal 3D printers has been increasing rapidly, as components and parts can be produced using this technology for applications in various end use industries such as aerospace & defense, automotive, healthcare, etc. Moreover, metal 3D printers eliminate waste generation and expands available design options, thereby allowing manufacturers to adapt products to use less material, incorporate improved mechanical properties, avoid assembly steps, and create new geometries.

Technological advancements towards development of advanced and compact metal 3D printers is another factor further fueling growth of the global metal 3D printer market. For instance, in April 2017, Desktop Metal Inc. launched two metal 3D printers – DM Metal Studio and the DM Production System. The company intends to make 3D printing of metal 10x cheaper, and the manufacturing process significantly faster as compared to traditional techniques.
