Global 3D Printing Metal Market 2016-2020

Speak With Analyst Request Sample

The primary industrial metal 3D printing technology today is powder bed fusion. There are eight (and a half) players currently on the market offering this technology and one (and a half) that is entering it now. That makes 10 players all together. The “half” is German metal manufacturing giant Trumpf, which has entered the market in a joint venture with Italy’s Sisma. These two companies join four more German companies: two are the market leaders EOS and Concept Laser, followed by SLM Solutions and the smaller REALizer. In the UK, the manufacturing giant Renishaw offers a range of very specific SLM 3D printers. There is one company in the US, 3D Systems, which offers metal 3D printers through its acquisition of France’s Phenix.

The new player that just entered the market is Additive Industries from The Netherlands. And there is one company that has taken a different approach: Sweden’s Arcam Metals, with its unique Electron Beam Melting technology. This means that all these companies from some of the world’s most industrialised nations, are competing to offer better and more automated machines and the amazing part is that they still can meet demand. One more player, Aero Sud in South Africa, will soon be entering the market with the biggest metal powder bed fusion 3D printer ever built.

Building metal parts is the only way 3D printing can become productive. Plastic 3D printing has its place in prototyping and education, but 3D printing in metal will allow the technology to be used to manufacture final production parts in a wide variety of industries. Metals are the fastest-growing segment of 3D printing, with printer sales growing at 48% and material sales growing at 32%. Because of the current speed, size and cost limitations, the high value, low volume industries such as aerospace and biomedical, have been the earliest adopters.

GE Aviation are investing $3.5bn in new plant to house EOS M-280 printers to print 100,000 fuel nozzles by 2020. Arcam claim their 3D printers had been used to manufacture over 50,000 orthopaedic implants so far. Both these industries demand titanium alloys, giving them a market share of 31% by volume. Aerospace is also heavily investing in cobalt alloys, nickel alloys and aluminium alloys.

The global 3D printing metals market was valued at USD 156.2 Million in 2014, and is expected to reach USD 776.8 Million, growing at a CAGR of 31.5% between 2016 and 2020

Increasing use of 3D metal printing as a mainstream production process in the industries such as aerospace & defense and medical & dental is driving the growth of 3D printing metals market.

The most widely used metals for 3D printing include titanium alloys, nickel, inconel, stainless steel, aluminum, cobalt chrome, copper, silver, gold, and others. Ti-6Al-4V, a titanium alloy, is mainly used for manufacturing of engine parts and airframes. It offers excellent corrosion resistance and high strength required for heavy engineering applications. Titanium alloys are mainly used in aerospace industries due to their light weight and excellent resistance to heat.
