Global 3D Printing Plastic and Photopolymer Material Market 2017


Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Global 3D Printing Plastic and Photopolymer Material Market – Analysis and Forecast, 2017-2023” report to their offering.

The global 3D printing plastic and photopolymer materials market is estimated to witness growth at a CAGR of 21.5% over the period of 2017 to 2023 and is estimated to reach $1865.4 million.

This growth in the market is attributed to the increasing demand from various end use application verticals such as healthcare industry, consumer industry, automotive industry, fashion & aesthetics industry, aerospace & defense industry, education industry, and architecture industry among others.

Plastic and photopolymer 3D printing materials are the most commonly used 3D printing materials in the market today. These materials are cheap as compared to metals and significantly reliable, which is the reason behind their growing popularity.

Plastics, whether in filament or powder form are one of the main material types used in 3D printing. ABS and PLA are the most commonly used plastics in the 3D printing market. The demand has grown tremendously due to growing awareness of the ability to manufacture objects using varied plastic materials. This is expected to continue in the forecast period. As 3D printing matures, developers continue to explore plastic chemistries and capabilities to offer materials that rival more traditional versions.

Photopolymers continue to be one of the larger groups of materials purchased for use in 3D printing. These are actually thermoset plastics that can be cured or hardened with exposure to some type of light source. Photopolymers developers are expected to take advantage of this characteristic and alter the mix of oligomers and monomers to develop specific physical properties such as stiffness or viscosity.

Photopolymers are one of the materials used in 3D printing with potential to make products with better properties. These are however, expensive than plastics. Due to increasing variety of photopolymers, photopolymer based technologies like SLA, PolyJet and DLP, and increasing acceptability across the various industries, the applications of 3D printing with photopolymers are increasing drastically.
