Growing demand for tooth replacement along with rising number of dental injuries owing to sport injuries and road accidents should boost dental implants industry, thus favouring additive manufacturing with metal powders market size.

Powder bed fusion (PBF) technique is used in medical implants as well as in production of jewellery and watches, which has resulted growth in metal additive manufacturing demand. Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) and Selective Laser Melting (SLM) techniques from PBF method are used to draw on the digital data and a user-friendly software, such as CAD to prepare the production process. Even complex structures of jewellery and watches such as one-off interwoven or interlocked pieces can be manufactured in high-end quality, thus stimulating additive manufacturing with metal powders market demand.

Titanium, nickel, cobalt, aluminium and copper based alloys are used in AM process to make various components such as multiple ports, ducts, valves, impellers and small & complex structures in different industrial sector such as oil & gas, aerospace and automotive. These products possesses superior properties such as corrosion resistance, high strength, durability heat resistance and good electrical conductivity, which increases its application scope in making lightweight components for automotive and aerospace industries, resulting into increased additive manufacturing with metal powders market size.

Key raw materials including titanium, nickel, cobalt, copper, aluminum and stainless steel powders are used in 3D printing process. High cost of these raw materials, intellectual property issues of the product manufactured and size limitations of the object may challenge industry profitability and may have an impact on additive manufacturing with metal powders market price trend.

Additive Manufacturing with Metal Powders Market, By Manufacturing Technique

PBF technique from metal AM process should expect growth close to 27% by the end of forecast period. PBF process uses laser or electron beam to melt and fuse materials together. It involves spreading of material over previous layers involving mechanism including roller and a blade. This technology works with variety of materials such as titanium and stainless steel in printing 3D medical devices. PBF technique is involved in creating dental restorative and prosthetic devices, thus propagating additive manufacturing with metal powders market size.

Blown powder technique demand should surpass USD 130 million by 2024. The raw materials are blown in the processing zone, where it contacts the plasma or laser beam which are melts the particle, and the particle is then subsequently deposited on the surface. Direct Metal Deposition (DMD) and Laser Engineering Net Shape (LENS) techniques comprises in this process. DMD technique may register significant growth at over 26% by the end of forecast period. This technique is used to repair broken parts and hence reduces cost and time in building new products, resulting into increased additive manufacturing with metal powders demand in aerospace and automotive industries.

Additive Manufacturing with Metal Powders Market, By Material

Titanium alloy powders exhibit superior shear strength, corrosion resistance, weatherability, and may register growth close to 29% by the end of projected timespan. Ti-6Al-4V is the most common used titanium alloy which provides high strength, formability, light weight and corrosion resistance, making it suitable for aerospace application, thus stimulating additive manufacturing with metal powders market size.

Stainless steel powder from 3D printing market size should exceed USD 240 million by 2024. Duplex stainless steel is characterized by a balanced austenitic and ferritic microstructure, which indeed provides a combination of corrosion and mechanical properties. 2205 duplex stainless steels have widespread application scope in automotive sector as it can withstand temperature upto 500 degree celsius. Rapid industrialization rate along with increased usage of AM technology in automotive industries in Germany, France and UK may positively influence additive manufacturing with metal powders market growth.
