Market Segmentation 

The MRFR report provides an inclusive segmental analysis of the global 3D printing filament market based on material type and end use industry. 

By material type, the 3D printing filament market is segmented into carbon fiber, nylon, sandstone, polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polyvinyl alcohol (PVA), polylactic acid (PLA), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), and others. Others have been segmented into amphora, flexible/TPE, conductive PLA, magnetic iron PLA, wood, PETT, and PETG. Of these, the ABS segment will lead the market over the forecast period for its renewable thermoplastic property that provides the elastomeric base over the polybutadiene that offers low cracking over stress, resistance to shock, and better flexibility. These properties allow acrylonitrile butadiene styrene to be used in numerous end use industries in shock-absorbing components.  

By end use industry, the 3D printing filament market is segmented into electrical and electronics, automotive, healthcare, aerospace and defense, and others. Others are segmented into packaging, consumer goods, energy, construction, food and beverage, and others. Of these, aerospace and defense will dominate the market over the forecast period for the rising production of aerospace (military and commercial), increasing demand for commercial and defense aircraft in Brazil, China, and India, and paradigm shift in the manufacturing process and engineering design. 

 Regional Analysis

 By region, the global 3D printing filament market report covers the growth opportunities and recent trends across Europe, North America, the Asia Pacific (APAC), Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa (MEA). Of these, the APAC region will spearhead the market over the forecast period. Factors adding to the growth of the 3D printing filament market in the region include an increase in the region’s aerospace sector, burgeoning demand for 3D printing filament to manufacture automotive particularly e-vehicles for lightweight properties, and rapid increase of 3D printing capabilities by major economies such as South Korea, India, Japan, and China. 

 The 3D printing filament market in North America is predicted to have significant growth over the forecast period for the rapidly growing aerospace sector, increasing focus on renewable energy sources, and the presence of a well-developed 3D printing manufacturing industry. 

 The 3D printing filament market in Europe is predicted to have favorable growth over the forecast period for increasing emphasis on renewable energy production and high automation production. 

 The 3D printing filament market in Latin America will have steady growth over the forecast period for a comparatively small yet rapidly growing automotive industry. 

 The 3D printing filament market in the MEA is predicted to have healthy growth over the forecast period for the rising number of automotive industries.
