3D printing, which is also called additive manufacturing, is a process in which a three-dimensional or 3D solid or physical object is created using a digital file or a digital design. The 3D printed physical object is achieved via additive processes wherein successive layers of materials are laid down until the object is created.
The global 3D Printing market is expected to cross $11 billion growing impressively at a CAGR more than 27% during 2016-2022. Until 2022, in value terms, the YoY growth in the demand for 3D printing will be in double digits due to the high demand from North America and Europe coupled with the rise in awareness about these devices in developing countries of APAC and RoW. This is likely to contribute revenue to the 3D printing market during the forecast period.

Growth of Investment and e-commerce boost 3D printing market
The demand and investments in the 3D printing market has grown tremendously over the past couple of years. The market is also witnessing investments by public and private enterprises. The US, Germany, and Japan are the leading three countries to file the top 10 3D printing patents during 1995-2015. The US tops the chart with Stratasys and 3D Systems filing the most number of patents for 3D printing machines. Several countries such as Singapore, China, and others are investing in the R&D of the 3D printing technology. With the increasing penetration of internet and e-commerce websites, consumers get detailed information on products, including quality, safety measures, and user guidance, which in turn, will boost the demand for e-retailing among customers. Consumers feel more comfortable about purchasing personal 3D printing machines online due to their benefits offered through online purchases.
3D Printer market to remain the largest segment.
The 3D printer market is the largest segment and is witnessing increased demand from the manufacturing industry in developed countries such as the US and Germany. The adoption of 3D printing in the industrial machinery industry is growing, and the market is likely to witness the contribution of this segment rise to 20.6% in 2022. The aerospace and defense segment will follow the industrial machinery segment. The healthcare segment is expected to be the fastest growing segment of the 3D printing market during the forecast period as innovations are making their way into various healthcare sectors such as orthopedics and implants during the forecast period.
North America to account for more than 38% market share
North America is likely to be the largest market followed by Europe. The demand for 3D printing services depends on the growth of the manufacturing industry in the North America region. Globally, North America is the largest market for industrial automation, and the market is growing rapidly. This is expected to drive the demand in the region. Japan and China lead the 3D printing market in the APAC region. Latin America and MEA, constituting RoW, had low shares in the global market in 2016. However, with many vendors expanding their operations in Middle Eastern countries, Latin American, and African countries (except GCC countries) for market share, the demand for these devices will grow in the region during the forecast period.
