BIS Research has come out with its meticulous report on:
Global Metal 3D Printers Market: Metal & Alloy (Titanium, Gold, Silver, Aluminum, Cobalt, Copper, Tungsten, and Nickel among Others), Application (Medical, Aerospace & Defense, Automotive, Fashion & Aesthetics, & Others – Analysis and Forecast (2015 –2020)

According to the report, the market size of metal 3D printing is projected to grow to $2,240.28 million by the year 2020, and the total number of metal 3D printers is anticipated to cross 5,334 units at a CAGR of 34.5%, between 2015 and 2020.

Increasing maturity in 3d printing technology opens up multi prong growth avenues

According to the analysts at BIS Research, “Up till the year 2011, high initial set-up cost, non-availability of qualified metals to be used as raw material along with other restraints inhibited the overall growth of metal 3D printing. However, with the advent of technology, the applications surrounding metal 3D printing have evolved, as can be seen from the growth that this industry has incurred from the year 2013, when the revenue was less than half of what it is expected to be by the end of year 2015”. Factors like increased government funding towards 3D printing in various countries and customizability are driving the overall market growth in this domain. Although, the market is still relatively fragmented, mainstay industrial players are resorting to mergers, acquisitions and product launches imbibing the latest technologies in an attempt to increase their overall market share.
