Europe captures second largest position in global 3D printing market and is anticipated to reach US 5,592.6 million by 2024 from the market size of US XX million in 2017. Dramatic uptake in investments by 3D major players, spur in research and development strategies and rapid embracement of 3D printing among small and medium enterprises have significantly contributed towards fostering the growth of European 3D printing market. However, absence of right set of skills and education, lack of standardization and certifications coupled with intellectual property rights and patent development issues constitute as impediments in the growth path of additive manufacturing in Europe. Government initiatives and burgeoning investments undertaken by aerospace and aircraft manufactures and consistent rise in demand for low cost prototypes have led the 3D printing in the region. Moreover, European health care systems are also anticipated to experience disruptive impact of 3D printing technologies since with the increasing life expectancies and rising prevalence of chronic diseases rising in Europe, treatments are becoming more complex and hence, more than 50% of the healthcare providers have embraced new printing techniques to meet the needs of patients including those of older and remote patients.
European 3D printing has stimulated its spending within the various areas of 3D printing domain comprising of 3D printers (hardware), 3D printing materials and 3D printing services. Although hardware component generated the largest revenues in the past few years, the focus on material components is also anticipated to drive the future spending towards the respective technique. In addition, service segment will continue to remain the key contributor of the market. In addition, medical or health care is also projected to showcase the biggest growth in 3D printing in years to come.
