Global Personal 3D Printers Market (2021 to 2030) – Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast – ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Personal 3D Printers Market by Type, Material, Technology, Additive Manufacturing Process, and Application: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2021-2030” report has been added to from ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.

The global personal 3D printer market size was USD 1.69 Billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 5.44 Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 13.50% during the forecast period.

3D printing is also known as additive printing technology, which allows manufacturers to create models using a variety of printing materials. Materials used for 3D printing include various types of polymers, metals, ceramics, and others. These printers feature extremely thin resin prints, using a liquid base that is solidified using UV light to create the solid objects. Personal 3D printers differ from professional printers in that they are much cheaper and the software needed to operate them is much more user-friendly.

Applications for 3D printers are growing rapidly because they can achieve greater speed with greater precision and finer resolution. These features combined have brought 3D printing technology to the brink of revolution where the market is poised to move from niche status to a feasible choice for the traditional manufacturing process in various applications.

Implementing additive manufacturing would help industries improve material productivity by eliminating waste that occurs during the production process. 3D printers find their application in various industries, i.e. education, entertainment, photography, architecture, fashion and jewelry, etc. Printing materials discussed in this report include various types of polymers, metals and alloys, ceramics and others.

Major factors driving the growth of the personal 3D printer market include high demand for 3D printing in the dental industry, government initiatives to adopt 3D printing technology, and the ability to offer customized products. However, lack of skilled manpower is hampering its adoption which is expected to pose a major threat to the global personal 3D printer market. However, the growing adoption of 3D printers across several industries is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for market growth.
