3D Printing to Be $20 Billion Dollar Industry by 2019

3d CAD servicesDid you know that in 2014, 3D printing made a total of $3.3 billion in revenues? That’s up a full 34 percent from 2013. What’s fueling the surge in this market? The most obvious reason lies with the fact that prices are decreasing and more people are able to make purchases in this area.

According to market researcher Canalys, nearly 133,000 3D printers were shipped globally in 2014, a 68 percent increase over the previous year. Revenue from the market included associated materials and services.

The research also showed that many used last holiday season to take advantage of 3D printers. More printers were purchased during November and December 2014 than the rest of that year!

America accounted for 42 percent of those sales. Each printer sold during the fourth quarter of 2014 was priced under $10,000. This is exciting news for those hoping to own one in the future!

Another reason for lower pricing is due to the fact that there are now more companies making 3D printers and selling them. That means competition in this area is rising and prices will continue to decrease.

A $20 Billion Dollar Industry

Research also shows that by the end of the decade, 3D printing will become a $20 billion industry! While that might be hard to believe, the numbers don’t lie. Based on 2014’s 3.3 billion dollar sales, 2015 will increase up to $5.2 billion. This will continue, bringing this market a double digit number by mid to late 2016! And then, by 2019, sales will increase to $20 billion!

3D printing is expected to move further into the manufacturing market, as well as being used at-home or in the office. Why order a product or replacement part when you can just print one at home or work!?

As we’ve stated in previous blog posts, 3D printing is also gaining – and will continue to gain – traction in the automotive, medical and manufacturing industries. Companies like BMW and General Electric are already using this option. They’ve also invested a great deal of money in the advancing technology.

This technology isn’t going away anytime soon! In fact, it’s gaining popularity every single day! If you’d like to learn more about 3D printing and its advancements, be sure to visit with other blog posts, below:
