Rapid Prototyping Materials Market size to exceed $1.3 Bn by 2030

  • Published Date: October 4, 2022

Rapid Prototyping Materials Market size is anticipated to surpass USD 1.3 billion by 2030, as per a new research report announced by Global Market Insights Inc.

Rising use of rapid prototyping materials in the manufacturing of medical devices & accessories and the increasing popularity of 3D printing in varied industries as the chief drivers of the rapid prototyping materials industry.

Beneficial qualities to increase ceramic prototyping materials industry share

With respect to material, the study classifies the rapid prototyping materials market into polymer, metal, ceramic, and others. The valuation of ceramic segment was worth more than USD 15 million in 2021 and is slated to observe robust progress through 2030. Ceramic prototyping materials offer superior dimensional stability, toughness, and hardness, which is likely to drive the demand for ceramics in rapid prototyping, particularly in the automotive and aerospace industries, in the upcoming years.

Significant utilization in industrial manufacturing to push subtractive & compressive technology demand

Rapid prototyping materials market report further cites positive inclination toward subtractive & compressive technology, especially across the manufacturing sector. The subtractive & compressive segment is poised to depict decent growth at over 8.5% CAGR through the assessment timeline. The segment growth is attributed to prevalent use of this rapid prototyping technology in the form of CNC machining or casting in the manufacturing industry. Rapid growth of industrial manufacturing in emerging nations is foreseen to stimulate segment demand.

Expanding healthcare sector to augment medical application segment expansion

The deployment of rapid prototyping materials for the development of medical devices is estimated to remain high in the forthcoming years. Medical application segment is anticipated to capture more than 13.5% share of the global market by 2030. Rising healthcare expenditure and increasing use of medical devices and instruments, such as surgical fasteners, scalpels, retractors, display systems, hearing aids, implants, and more, are pushing product adoption.
