Global Additive Manufacturing Market Definition
3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, is a revolutionary technique to industrial production that allows for the creation of lighter, stronger parts and systems. Because it uses computer-aided design (CAD) software or 3D object scanners to command the hardware to deposit material, layer by layer, in precise geometric patterns, additive manufacturing can provide digital flexibility and efficiency to manufacturing operations.

Additive Manufacturing Market Dynamics
- Reduced production cost for rapid manufacturing
Because additive manufacturing technologies have lower production costs than traditional manufacturing processes, they can be cost-effective. Fixed costs are exclusively attributed to a single component design in traditional manufacturing technologies. There are some fixed expenses associated with additive manufacturing, but these costs can be more easily compensated by the number of diverse items that can be created in a single batch. As a result, additive manufacturing is more cost-effective than traditional manufacturing, which is one of the primary drivers driving market revenue growth.
- Ease of manufacturing complex design
When compared to other traditional manufacturing processes, the fundamental physical difference in how items are manufactured with the additive manufacturing process generates several key functional distinctions. The capacity of additive manufacturing to build complicated geometries that would be difficult or impossible to achieve using traditional manufacturing processes is the most significant of these functional changes. These complex geometries are also more durable and lighter than standard geometries. The ability of additive manufacturing to construct complicated geometries more easily than conventional production technologies has fueled its growth.
Furthermore, the development of new and improved technologies and materials will be a major factor influencing the growth of the additive manufacturing market. Along with this, increasing urbanization and rising level of government funding are the driving factors accelerating the growth of the additive manufacturing market. Also, the increasing expenditure on healthcare infrastructure is the major market drivers that will further escalate the growth of additive manufacturing market. Other significant factors that will cushion the additive manufacturing market's growth rate are the customization of products and bulk production.
- Development of new supply chain models
Moreover, the rising development of new supply chain models will provide beneficial opportunities for growth in additive manufacturing. Along with this, the expiry of key patents will influence the market's growth rate by creating various market opportunities in coming years.
Moreover, growing number of strong mergers and acquisitions and increase in the number of emerging markets will further provide beneficial opportunities for the additive manufacturing market growth during the forecast period.
Restraints/Challenges Global Additive Manufacturing Market
- The dearth of software efficiency
However, dearth of software efficiency will impede the additive manufacturing market's growth rate. The entire process of customer-specific additive manufacturing is primarily manual, and this manual labour is justifiable to some extent in early Additive Manufacturing use cases (AM). It was not essential to tightly integrate the 3D printer into supporting software solutions in prototype because the number of components produced was small and there was little need for comprehensive data collection.
- Complexities associated with the production of large single parts
Even if additive manufacturing could significantly improve production speed and volume, it would still be impossible to produce huge single items. This is another key obstacle that additive manufacturing researchers must overcome as they seek new uses for the technology. Because existing additive manufacturing processes have a restricted construction envelope, even larger components that can be printed must still be connected using mechanical joining or welding.
On the other hand, the lack of standardization equipment and process control will challenge the additive manufacturing market. Additionally, issues with the availability as well as cost of additive manufacturing will act as restrain and further impede the growth rate of market during the forecast period of 2022-2029.

COVID-19 Impact on Additive Manufacturing Market
The growth of the additive manufacturing market had been hampered by COVID-19. Previously, factories were forced to close briefly owing to global lockdowns to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Companies redesigned their manufacturing methods and embraced contemporary production techniques during the lockdown, and after the lockdown ended, they began rearranging their business strategies and investing in nations that were predicted to grow faster. New businesses in a variety of industries have begun to use additive manufacturing technologies on a large scale to manufacture a variety of products. Governments in several nations are assisting businesses who are using contemporary technology for long-term growth and improved infrastructure by offering subsidies and allocating significant funds to this goal in their budgets. Rising demand for additive manufacturing from the healthcare, automotive, and military sectors is likely to fuel market revenue growth during the forecast period.
