Europe: Largest 3D printing market for automotive by 2020
North America has the highest penetration rate of 3D printing technology.
Europe and Asia-pacific are in the early stages of adopting 3D printing technology. This lag in adoption is attributed to a lack of awareness regarding 3D printing and reluctance towards new technology.
However, Europe is projected to account for the largest share, in terms of value (2020), followed by Asia-Pacific, North America, and the rest of the world. The expiration of key patents has prompted several manufacturers to enter the 3D printing market.
The prices of 3D printers are also declining, which could lead to a sudden spike in demand from the consumer segment. The 3D printing market for automotive in Europe is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR, by value, of 30.29% from 2015 to 2020.
Key market drivers and restraints
Some of the major drivers of the 3D printing in automotive market are innovation in new printing materials and technologies, product development at low costs, and expiration of key patents. However, certain factors, such as the high initial investment, lack of standards in process control, and lack of high quality raw material, could inhibit market growth.
