This report provides market data and analysis of polymer additive manufacturing market trends at the professional and industrial level.  Readers will learn how the polymer 3D printing opportunity is segmented across numerous user industries, and segmented across material extrusion, photopolymerization, powder bed fusion, and jetting 3D printing technologies with hardware and material market shipments, sales, installations, and future forecasts through 2027 to provide insight into the future of polymer 3D printing.

In 2018, the polymer additive manufacturing market is increasingly segmented between several leading print processes, all of which are developing into significant global technology markets for manufacturing. SmarTech Publishing believes that a proper understanding of the opportunity in polymer 3D printing technology worldwide requires both a deep understanding of the individual nature of each widely adopted polymer print technology, but also an understanding of the interrelationship between these technologies and how they are all growing as a whole to create an industry. This report deals with the latter, and provides a wealth of analysis and market data of trends across all major polymer print technologies.

Companies developing materials, software solutions, and ancilliary post processing or automation technologies for polymer 3D printers have come to understand that, unlike the great BetaMax/VHS technology debate of decades past, all of the established polymer print technologies have a viable long term role to play in the growth of the 3D printing industry. As a result, companies such as DSM, BASF, Henkel, Siemens, Dassault Systemes, and many more continue to develop solutions for multiple print processes.
