Improved efficiency and cost-effectiveness to bolster the adoption of the FDM 3D printing technique

3D printing equipment business from Fuse Deposition Modeling (FDM) segment is slated to expand at 18% CAGR between 2023 and 2032. FDM takes only a few minutes or hours to print an entire part, which helps speed up the prototyping process while shortening lead times. FDM printers have an easily scalable design and are compatible with a range of colors and filament materials, including acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), polylactic acid (PLA), and nylon. These characteristics make them highly cost-effective and preferred alternatives over their counterparts and may lead to their increased adoption during the study timeframe.

Strict environmental regulations to augment product sales across Europe

Europe 3D printing materials market is projected to amass over USD 1.3 billion by 2032. The regional growth is credited to the flourishing economic landscape and the remarkable rise in electronics and automotive sales. An increased emphasis on boosting the production of energy-efficient and lightweight vehicles with better fuel economy pushed by the stringent regulatory mandates will further augment the demand for 3D printing materials and equipment in Europe.
