3D Printing Service Bureaus Market Outlook (2023-2033)

Global demand for the 3D printing service bureaus Market as of 2022 is a valuation of US$ 7,829.5 Mn and is forecasted that by the end of 2033 have a sales revenue of US$ 87,866.1 Mn and as of 2023, the market is estimated to be US$ 9,638.1 Mn. This huge growth is because, over the course of the next ten years, the market is predicted to progress at a CAGR of 24.7%.

Three-dimensional (3D) printing is an advanced manufacturing process that turns a digital design into a physical object. The procedure involves laying down thin layers of material, such as liquid or powdered plastic, metal, or cement, and then fusing the layers together.

Hearing aid manufacturers, car manufacturers, and, airline manufacturers, for example, use 3D printing to create prototypes and mass-manufacture their products using custom scans.

While 3D printing technology is currently too slow for mass production, it has the potential to disrupt both the manufacturing logistical support and inventory management industries.

North America held the largest market share of 28.5% in 2022 and is expected to retain its dominant position throughout the forecast period and the demand for the 3D printing service bureaus Market and Europe held a 23.1% value share in the global market in 2022.

What factors make Germany Hold the Largest Share of 3D Printing Service Bureaus in Europe?

“Germany Has a High Global Market Share in The Europe Region”

The Western European 3D printing industry, particularly in Germany, is highly exposed to economic volatility, and 3D printing technology has primarily served as a prototyping technique in the region.

3D printing technology enhances the manufacturing process of finished products in a variety of industry verticals. In Western Europe, the technology has matured quite well, and it does not represent a high cost or a risk in this regional market. End users are putting more trust in 3D printing services to deliver secure manufacturing benefits and customized product designs. More users are expected to turn to 3D printing techniques to boost their sales and market attractiveness.

Due to this reason, the 3D printing service bureaus market for Germany in 2022 held a market share of 12.2% in the global market.

Category-wise Insights

Which Service Segment Holds the Largest Market Share in the 3D Printing Service Bureaus Market?

“Resin 3D Printing Services Have the Larger Market Share”

Engineers, designers, artists, and DIY enthusiasts can use resin printing to 3D print high-quality objects that filament-based fused deposition modelling (FDM) printers cannot. The process involves shining ultraviolet (UV) light into a tank of liquid resin, causing a reaction that solidifies the resin into a hard plastic. This photopolymerization occurs in a small volume as a result of the narrow ultraviolet beams. As a result, the finished object can have finer details and smoother surfaces than FDM printers.

In 2022, the Public cloud 3D printing service bureau’s market share was estimated to dominate the global market and account for 38.2% of the total market value share.

Which Application Segment of the 3D Printing Service Bureaus Market Holds a Larger Share Market?

“Tools & Fixtures Holds a Larger Share Market”

In 2022, it was estimated that the tools and fixtures segment accounted for 37.6% of the market share.

Replacing traditionally manufactured tools and fixtures with 3D printed tools and fixtures reduces overall fabrication expense, labour, and time, but manufacturers say the production-floor efficiencies produced by having better tools and fixtures delivered faster are even more significant.

Competitive Landscape

It is estimated that these market participants will lead the 3D printing service bureaus market by launching new products and expanding internationally. Key participants' key business strategy is to collaborate with other businesses involved in digital technologies and digital transformation to improve their 3D printing service bureaus products and increase sales.

  • In May 2022, The F190CR and F370CR, two new industrial FDM 3D printers designed for high-strength composite parts, are part of the mass launch. Stratasys is also introducing 16 new 3D printing materials for its FDM, P3, and SAF technologies.
  • In May 2019, American fashion designer Zac Posen partnered with leading 3D printing companies such as GE Additive and Protolabs to create stunning 3D printed dresses.
