Vat photopolymerization 3D printing technology is undergoing significant evolution in the search to compete with injection molding and shed its image of an aging rapid prototyping technology, evolving into a next generation, Industry 4.0 digital manufacturing process. This is being achieved in part through the commercialization of high speed, layer-free photopolymerization printing processes which enable both the use of more robust liquid resin materials and isotropic part properties, as well as the continued evolution of photopolymer materials used in traditional vat photopolymerization processes like stereolithography. Vat photopolymerization benefits from strong interest and adoption in the dental industry, but is setting its sights on a much larger prize for the long term – serial production of parts using automated, scalable systems that compete with molding processes in quality and costs per part.

This study is the first of its kind to specifically examine the market for vat photopolymerization 3D printing, and seeks to identify areas of opportunity which are emerging in the segment at a professional and industrial level across markets of aerospace, automotive, healthcare, print services, consumer products, industrial equipment, and much more. With the evolution of the processes have come greater opportunities in material development, as new print processes enable a wider range of chemistries which can be incorporated, expanding the polymer printing industry’s use of thermoset materials.

In this report, SmarTech presents a complete market analysis with an emphasis on market data and competitive dynamics of the vat photopolymerization 3D printing industry. Market data and forecasts cover hardware and material sales and shipments and installations of printers by geography, machine classification, and end user industry. Those with a stake directly in photopolymerization 3D printing, as well as those with an interest in the overall polymer 3D printing solutions market, should understand the factors and trends affecting each individual polymer printing technology widely available today in order to best inform strategic direction and investments.

For a cross-market analysis of polymer 3D printing overall, inclusive of all technologies, refer to SmarTech Publishing’s recent reports, Additive Manufacturing with Polymers and Plastics 2018, and Polymer Additive Manufacturing Markets in 2018 – Industry Summary.
