The analysts forecast the Global 3D Printer market to grow at a CAGR of 42.44% over the period 2014-2019.
3D printing, also known as AM, uses computer-aided designs to create an object. It is a process of making 3D objects using plastic, metal, and composite materials, usually layer upon layer, to build physical models, prototypes, patterns, tooling components, and production parts.
Increased usage of 3D printing by entrepreneurs and consumers is one of the major trends upcoming in this market. Access to 3D printing has sparked innovation and creativity, enabling the creation of customized items ranging from toys to artificial limbs.
According to the report, the need for quick turnaround time is one of the major drivers of the market. 3D printers facilitate the production of reliable and cost-effective products. Thus, they lower the need for multiple prototypes and analysis time as a result of which the manufacturers can achieve reduced product development cycle time and time-to-market pressure for vendors.
Further, the report states that intellectual property rights and copyright issues are one of the key challenges in the market. Cases related to patent infringement and intellectual property rights have increased with the increased usage of 3D printing technology, which may hamper the growth of the market.
To calculate the market size, the report considers revenue generated from the sales of 3D printers, worldwide.
