The global 3D printing plastics market size is likely to reach USD 1.98 billion. Spiraling demand for 3D printing plastics, particularly from the medical and aerospace & defense industries, is anticipated to contribute to the growth of the market during the forecast period. The 3D printing plastics market is benefitting from favorable government support in key economies such as the U.S. and China. Thus, there is an upsurge in the demand for 3D printing plastics from various end use industries such as automotive, medical, and electrical & electronics. Adoption rate of 3D printing is poised to witness sharp rise across several new end user industries, which in turn is expected to lead to higher demand for printing materials such as plastics. Functional prototyping, tooling, and designing have enabled extensive applications of 3D printing across newer application areas. Photopolymers was the largest type segment in the global 3D printing plastics market in 2017.
