Report Description

Global Aerospace 3D Printing Market By Vertical (Material & Printer), By Industry (Aircraft; UAVs & Spacecraft), By Material (Metals; Composites & Ceramics), By Printer Technology (SLA; FDM; DMLS; SLS; CLIP & Others), By Material Application, By Region, Competition, Forecast & Opportunities, 2024

Global aerospace 3D printing market was valued at over $ 850 million in 2018 and is poised to grow at CAGR of more than 20% during forecast period on account of increasing demand for reducing the overall weight of the aircraft so as to improve the fuel consumption. Moreover, 3D printing can be used to customize components and parts used in the aircraft industry by efficient use of the overall raw material with high accuracy, thereby promoting growth of 3D printing market. Complicated components can be easily made with the 3D printing technology with reduced errors.

Global aerospace 3D printing market can be segmented based on vertical, industry, material, printer technology and material application. In terms of vertical, the market can be bifurcated into printers and material. On account of increasing demand for materials possessing high strength to weight ratio for 3D printing technology, material segment is anticipated to grow at the highest rate during forecast period. Based on the material application, 3D printing finds application in all the components and parts including engine, structural and space components. However, on account of increasing focus of companies on manufacturing engine components, the segment is posed to grow at impressive rate until 2024.

Regionally, the market for aerospace 3D printing is gaining traction and expanding to various regions including Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, South America and Middle East & Africa. Among these regions, North America is the largest market of aerospace 3D printing. Presence of regional and leading players in the region backed by approval from Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for the use of 3D printed parts in commercial aircrafts, the market of North America is anticipated to grow at substantial rate through 2024.
