3D printing industry chain depth analysis

3D printing technology can be traced back to the invention of inkjet printers in 1976. After the 1980s, the 3D printing industry has received extensive attention at home and abroad, and various 3D printing technologies have been applied and developed in various industries. At present, it has covered many fields such as manufacturing, medical, education, aerospace and military.

Global 3D printing market size


The global 3D printing market has increased in size year by year, and the 2010-2016 3D printing market has a CAGR of 24.60%. From US$1.3 billion in 2010 to US$6.06 billion in 2016 (approximately RMB41.75 billion), the growth rate was 16.54%, a year-on-year decrease of 13.46%. With the rapid growth of 3D printing technology and the penetration of 3D printing technology in various industries. In 2017, the global 3D printing industry market scale exceeded 7 billion US dollars. The global 3D printing industry will continue to maintain rapid growth in the next five years.


The entire 3D printing industry chain can be divided into: upstream basic parts industry; midstream 3D printing equipment manufacturers, 3D printing materials manufacturers and supporting supporting enterprises; downstream is mainly the major application areas of 3D printing. In the usual sense, the 3D printing industry mainly refers to 3D printing equipment, materials and service companies.


At present, 3D printing materials mainly include engineering plastics, photosensitive resins, rubber materials, metal materials and ceramic materials. In addition, colored gypsum materials, artificial bone powder, cell biological materials and sugar materials are also available in 3D printing. The application.


After nearly 40 years of development, 3D printing has formed a complete industrial chain. Every step of the industry chain has gathered a number of leading companies. Globally, equipment companies represented by Stratasys and 3D Systems play a leading role in the industry chain, and representative equipment companies are usually able to provide materials and print services, with strong voice.


3D printing material product classification


At present, with the advancement of technology and R&D, there are currently more than 300 materials available for 3D printing. Since 90% of 3D printer users use desktop products at this stage, they are made of plastic materials like ABS and PLA. Consumables account for more than 50% of the total, and currently polymer manufacturers are mainly concentrated in ABS and PLA and nylon materials.


From the perspective of material types: the development of the 3D printing industry depends on the development and application of its materials. The main materials for the development of the global 3D printing industry are PLA, ABS, Standard Resin, PA12, PA 2200, PETG and Clear Resin. The most widely used PLA material is 37.1%, followed by ABS at 15.5%.

3D printing downstream application analysis


At this stage, 3D printing is mainly used in aerospace, medical, automotive and other fields, and is the most widely used in the manufacturing and medical fields. According to the sales scale, the global 3D printing output value is generally balanced in the application of machinery, consumer electronics, automotive, aerospace, medical and other industries. The output value of the machinery industry accounts for 17.5%, which is the main downstream of the 3D printing industry. Application field; followed by consumer electronics production value of 16.6%, ranked second; automotive downstream application output value of 16.1%, second only to consumer electronics applications. In the future, with the development of the electronics and automotive industries, the scale of output in the two fields is expected to increase further.

3D printing technology has developed rapidly, and its application fields have spread to almost all fields. It has become an effective means of modern model, mold and parts manufacturing, especially in aerospace, defense and military, biomedical, home appliances, construction engineering, teaching and research, agricultural tools, and the public. The fields of consumption and other fields have been applied to a certain extent and have achieved good results.


3D printing in the automotive industry


The automotive industry, which is closely related to people's lives, is also affected by 3D printing technology. 3D printing and printing technology has injected new blood into the automobile manufacturing industry, not only the design and manufacture of automobile parts, but also the design of automobile exterior shape, internal structure or automobile interior function, and 3D printing technology is applied to different degrees. . At present, the application of 3D printing technology in automotive design mainly focuses on four stages: conceptual model development, functional verification prototype manufacturing, tool manufacturing and small batch custom production.


In the field of automobile manufacturing in foreign countries, the application of 3D printing technology has been relatively mature, and there are many successful cases. The world's first 3D printing car, the prototype Urbee, was launched in 2013. The entire body is integrated with 3D printing technology, which has the flexibility and flexibility that other sheet metal materials do not have. The parts of the vehicle can be printed in just 2,500 hours. All the workers need to do is to assemble all the parts that are assembled, and the production cycle is much faster than the traditional car manufacturing cycle. The new version of the Urbane2 requires only 50 3D printed parts, while the traditional standard car needs to be assembled from thousands of parts.
