Market Dynamics


Requirement of rapid innovation

Prototyping may be done quickly and easily with 3D printing. A proof-of-concept can be printed immediately after a product or part has been created in CAD software. A change or iterative improvement can be built and tested as soon as it is included in the design because there isn't much tooling needed. This makes it possible for engineers to produce testable parts more quickly than with other, more conventional methods. Additionally, it enables product designers to quickly have their concepts QA evaluated and architects to work with real representations of their designs. As the demand for such innovation increases, the market for additive manufacturing is observed to get accelerated.


Higher cost for implementation

Although there are many cost-effective purposes of having additive manufacturing and there are several advantages for implementing a whole additive manufacturing in manufacturing infrastructure, there is a major hampering factor associated with the cost of implementation of additive manufacturing system. The overall cost of implementing additive manufacturing systems in infrastructure depends upon business case, material, and other optional factors. Likewise, the industrial metal 3D printers are much more expensive and require a large amount of investment at the initial point. All these factors are observed to limit the adoption of additive manufacturing solutions in the manufacturing sector, especially in areas with weaker economies. Thus, the factor is observed to act as a major restraint for the market.


Emergence of automation in manufacturing sector

While 3D printing automates the development of parts, firms further streamline additive manufacturing lines by using digital workflows and automation technologies. By eliminating manual intervention after component production, automated part processing, for instance, increases production throughput. As a result, startups are providing hardware and software solutions for design and processing that are independent of printers in order to automate additive manufacturing procedures. They improve print flexibility and reduce waste while enabling quick prototyping, on-demand manufacturing, and high-speed part creation. Automated 3D printing systems also save money on labor and eliminate human mistakes. As manufacturing industries start emphasizing automation, the element is observed to open lucrative opportunities for the market.


Speed of the manufacturing

The manufacturing of an object or product is greatly dependent on the batch size and use cases. The process of printing part is much slower as compared to the traditional one. For example, plastics parts just take a few seconds to make with an injection molding in traditional process while it takes hours with a 3D printer. Thus, the speed of manufacturing is observed to hamper the market’s growth.
