As 3D printing continues to expand in industries such as medical, defense, and aerospace, the global market valuation will continue to reflect that speed of innovation. New data from the recently published “Metal 3D Printing Market” report from the Verified Market Research estimates the global metal 3D Printing market size to reach USD $4.46 Billion by 2028. This is significant compared to 2020, when the market was valued at USD 534.18 Million and it is projected to grow even larger at a CAGR of 30.38% from 2021 to 2028.

The report highlights some of the key players in the metal 3D printing space, including familiar names such as 3D Systems, EOS, Exone, Stratasys, and Voxeljet, as well as major market movements such as 3D Systems’ acquisition of German simulation software firm, Additive Works and ExOne’s X1 Tooling launch offering fast and affordable final production solutions. Something worth noting is that the report attributes the expiry of patents for selective laser, customization, and the adoption of 3D printing in new markets as a few of the driving factors propelling growth in metal 3D printing. Alternatively, the report also outlines some of the constraints that are limiting growth in the space such as high costs of 3D printers and materials as well as processing complexities for metal powder producers.
