The global 3D printing metals market is witnessing continual increase mainly due to the rising adoption of 3D printing technology across industries. However, recently, applications of the evolving 3D metal printing technology have risen drastically due to the Corona epidemic. Proponents of 3D printing technology and digital manufacturing solutions are showcasing their potential as enablers of flexible supply chains, decentralizing worldwide production to respond to the disruption.
With the help of 3D metal printing technology, many companies are able to create urgently needed supplies for the medical community to fight against coronavirus, creating far more sustainable supply chains. Millions of parts for front-line healthcare workers such as components for face shields and PAPR hoods are produced mobilizing digital manufacturing and with lead times of as little as 24 hours. Also, some metal companies are aiming at COVID-19 with virus-killer coatings.
They are offering machines to spray-print a layer of copper on to a door handle, aiming to use the metal’s antiviral properties to counter the threat of the COVID-19 pandemic. These developments cumulatively presage that the 3D metal printing technology is estimated to perceive huge market demand and prominence in the next few years. According to Market Research Future (MRFR), the global 3d printing metals market is poised to touch a valuation of USD 2,006.2 MN by 2030, registering 28.12% CAGR a throughout the forecast period (2022 – 2030).
Additionally, military sectors, especially in developed countries such as America and Israel, are heavily investing in cutting-edge warfare technologies like 3D printing. Also, governments are increasing their defense budgets to acquire futuristic weapons developed using 3D metal printing. Also, 3D metal printing technology is revolutionizing army logistics, enabling the faster manufacturing of small metal parts for army vehicles. These factors would cumulatively drive the growth of the market.
