The 3D printing metal market is expected to grow from US$ 4.5 billion in 2021 to more than US$ 13 billion by 2028 at a CAGR of 16.5% between 2022 and 2028.
A growing number of metals and metal alloys can be 3D printed. These metals include aluminum, titanium, nickel, copper, bronze, cobalt, steel, stainless steel, tungsten, nickel-based alloys, and precious metals such as gold, silver, and platinum. All these different metals offer various properties, which make them suitable for a wide range of applications. Metal 3D printing material is available in various formats, catering to different metal 3D printing methods. The most common formats are powder, wire, and filament. The commonly used techniques for metal additive manufacturing are powder bed fusion techniques, which include direct metal laser sintering (DMLS), selective laser melting (SLM), and electron beam melting (EBM). 3D printing metals are used in different industries such as aerospace & defense, automotive, medical, and construction.
The 3D printing metal market is mainly driven by the growing use of 3D printed metal parts in aerospace & defense and automotive industries. The aerospace industry is hugely benefiting from the continuing uptake of additive manufacturing with the growing use of metals in the process. There are various benefits of metal 3D printing in aerospace manufacturing. With 3D printing, previously complex parts can be simplified into one precisely printed component rather than putting them together from multiple individual components. In addition, market players are launching metal additive manufacturing machines that are faster, easier to use, and more powerful with an increasing number of compatible metals. Further, various industries are adopting 3D metal printing technologies to produce cost-effective metal parts and prototypes, benefiting from increased freedom of design linked to additive manufacturing. All these factors are fueling the 3D printing metal market growth.
