Medical & dental is one of the key segments in the 3D printing materials market

Medical & dental is one of the major applications that use 3D printing technology. Several medical products such as surgical equipment, prosthetics & implants, and tissue engineering products are manufactured through 3D printing technology. Apart from this, 3D printing is also used for technologies in the field of medicine such as orthopedic, dental, and cranio-maxillofacial. With recent advancements in bio-printing applications of the 3D printing technology, human organs can also be printed.

Metal materials are expected to dominate the 3D printing materials market

Metals have a higher market share in comparison to plastics and ceramics owning to its high strength. Therefore, they have a wide range applications in the aerospace & defense, medical & dental, and automotive industries that require strong materials for the making of end-use parts by using 3D printing technology. Metals are generally available in powder form with different grades of colors. Titanium is a special material with high strength used in 3D printing spare parts, medical, jewelry, home decor, tools, and army related products.

North America is the largest 3D printing materials market

The U.S. accounts for a major share of the 3D printing materials market in North America, whereas Germany accounts for the major market of the European region. High growth in the U.S. is attributed to the growing demand for 3D printing technology, especially from the aerospace & defense industry. The Asia-Pacific region is also experiencing high growth in the 3D printing materials market. This increase in growth is due to the adoption of 3D printing technology in countries such as China, Japan, and South Korea.
