“The 3D printing metals market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 28.8% from 2018 to 2023”
The 3D printing metals market is projected to grow from USD 590.4 million in 2018 to USD 2,089.7 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 28.8% from 2018 to 2023. The increasing application of 3D printing in aerospace & defense industry, majorly in the manufacturing of aircraft engines and components, as well as the expiry of various technology patents, are the key factors that are expected to drive the growth of the 3D printing metals market. However, metal 3D printers are limited by the size of the products that can be printed. This limitation restrains the growth of the 3D printing metals market.

“The aerospace & defense segment is expected to hold the largest share of the 3D printing metals market during the forecast period.”
Based on end-use industry, the aerospace & defense segment accounted for the largest share of the 3D printing metals market in 2017. This segment is also projected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. The aerospace & defense industry has a specific requirement for lightweight & high strength components, with accurate and precise designs. Metals like stainless steel, aluminum, and titanium are used extensively in this industry as they can withstand high temperatures and are resistant to wear & tear. Therefore, the demand for high strength materials to manufacture complex geometries is the major factor driving the growth of the 3D printing metals market in the aerospace & defense end-use industry segment.
