Market Drivers:

The development of aerospace and defense components as well as the acceptance of environmentally friendly components worldwide are projected to present growth prospects. For instance, NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) uses a 3D printer to quickly produce space components and parts, whereas traditional manufacturing would take months or years to complete before being sent into orbit.

Increased innovation and R&D in 3D printing filaments, such as multi-property materials and bio-degradable 3D filaments, is drawing industry participants to invest in the same. The market for bio-degradable 3D printing filaments is also expanding as a result of the severe environmental laws implemented by European nations.

Due to their low cost, water resilience, and ease of manufacture, plastic 3D printing filaments are utilized extensively. Contrary to conventional printing, which employs materials like composites, nylon, and other hybrid filaments, fused filament manufacturing processes produce prototypes for aerospace and military, automotive, and industrial application segments more quickly.

Market Restraints:

The market’s expansion is being hampered by the 3D printing technology’ high capital investment needs and many companies facing budgetary constraints in this scenario.

Having said that, future growth prospects for the 3D printing filament market may come from innovations in 3D printing for the medical industry and improvements in 3D printing materials.

COVID 19 Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown the globe into a crisis that is still developing due to the widespread confusion it has caused. Supply chains have been hampered by logistical issues brought on by production and transportation delays, as well as opposition to free trade and globalization, which has led to severe shortages of items that are vital to life. The fight to increase the number of beds, resources, and skilled personnel in healthcare institutions is on. The lack of urgently required medical supplies is being addressed via crisis response initiatives.

Three-dimensional printing’s digital adaptability and speedy prototyping enable quick technological mobilization and, as a result, quick responses to catastrophes. Critical parts may be produced on-demand by any decentralized 3D printing facility in the globe by utilizing online blueprints even amid severe supply chain interruptions. Additionally, 3D printing’s additive properties allow for sophisticated designs and product customization. Personal protection equipment (PPE), medical and testing equipment, personal accessories, visualization aids, and emergency housing are just a few of the many 3D-printing applications being used in the fight against COVID-19. For the 3D printing filaments sector, this will ensure consistent growth.
