The global additive manufacturing market in 2021 was valued at US$13.92 billion. The market is expected to reach US$44.03 billion by 2027. Additive manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing, is a transformational approach to industrial production that uses a computer-controlled process to generate three-dimensional objects through the process of adding materials layer-by-layer. It works by using a computer-aided design (CAD) or 3D object scanner that directs hardware to place material, layer-by-layer to create precise geometric shapes.
The future of additive manufacturing technologies looks promising, as the industrial and medical world is showing widening adoption. Therefore, expanding applications of additive manufacturing in various industry verticals is one of the main factors that would drive the demand for additive manufacturings in the forthcoming years. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of approx. 21.2% during the forecasted period of 2022-2027.

Moreover, with the increasing demand for customization and personalization, additive manufacturing provides an opportunity to produce customized products as per the requirement of the customer. Therefore, rising trend of e miniaturization is another significant factor that would drive the demand for additive manufacturing in the forthcoming years.
Impact Analysis of COVID-19 and Way Forward:
The COVID-19 outbreak resulted in hampering the demand for additive manufacturing in various applications. Governments of various countries across the globe have enforced lockdown measures to curb the spread of the disease. This has resulted in the slowdown and halt in manufacturing operations, restrictions on supply and transport, and infrastructure slowdown. A few companies, such as SLM Solutions, ExOne and Protolabs, witnessed marginal growth.
The global additive manufacturing market is highly fragmented, with a large number of small- and medium-sized manufacturers operating in the market.
The key players in the global additive manufacturing market are:
3D Systems Corporation
Proto Labs, Inc.
General Electric (GE Additive)
Desktop Metal, Inc. (EnvisionTec, Inc.)
Electro Optic Systems (EOS) GmbH
Some of the strategies among key players in the market for additive manufacturings are product launches, mergers, acquisitions, and collaborations. For instance, in November 2021, Optomec Inc., announced the launch of two new additive manufacturing machines specifically designed for high volume production and incorporate automated part-handling options. On the other hand, Stratasys Ltd., announced that Danish shoe manufacturer ECCO is using Stratasys Origin one 3D printing technology to accelerate product development, by allowing conceptual footwear samples to be reviewed early in the development cycle using 3D printed mold and lasts with resin materials from Henkel Loctite.
