Expanding Applications and Technological Advancements Drive Growth in the Global 3D Printer Market


SkyQuest projects that the 3D printer market will attain a value of USD 149.4 billion by 2030, with a CAGR of 20.5% over the forecast period (2023-2030). The deployment of 3D printing technology involves providing installation services, consultation solutions, customer support and handling aspects related to copyrights, licensing and patenting. The technology has proven beneficial to manufacturers in terms of prototyping, designing the structure and end products, modeling and reducing the time to market. As a result, production expenses have been significantly reduced and manufacturers can now offer better products at reasonable prices.

Westford, USA, June 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — According to SkyQuest, small businesses are increasingly adopting desktop printers and diversifying their operations to offer 3D printing and related services. This trend is particularly evident in the United States, where the concept of ‘fabshops’ is gaining popularity. These fabshops offer on-demand 3D printing of parts and components according to the designs and requirements provided by customers. As a result, the demand for desktop printers is expected to rise significantly in the coming years.

3D printing is a technology used to produce three-dimensional objects by building up material layer-by-layer in an additive process. Initially, a digital model of the object is created using computer-aided design (CAD) software. Next, the model is sliced into layers to convert it into a format that a 3D printer can understand. The resulting data file is then transferred to the 3D printer, and the printer settings are configured to begin the printing process.
