3D Printing Ceramics Market, By Type, By Application By Region (North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, and Rest of World) – Global Forecast to 2020
The global consumption of 3D Printing Ceramics, along with their end products, has witnessed a stable growth in the past few years and this growth is estimated to scale up in the next five years due to increased number of technological developments taking place in the 3D printing market.
Important patents for powder-based laser sintering technology, which is one of the cheapest technologies that uses metal powders to produce durable products, have expired in 2014. With the expiry of these key patents, the powder-based laser sintering technology will be accessible to many medium and small-scale industries, subsequently leading to increase in demand for powder-based printers. Manufacturers in powder metallurgy industry are likely to benefit the most, from these developments.
Ceramics are naturally available and are environmental friendly. They are the only food-safe 3D printing materials used for home decor and table ware products. Ceramics are recyclable materials that can withstand temperatures up to 600ºC. They are generally available in powder forms with different grades of colors and are used in 3D printing of cups, saucers, plates, statues, and figurines. Ceramic materials are watertight, but they are not dishwasher safe, and higher temperatures may significantly change the material’s properties.
Manufacturers, who deal in powder metallurgy, are testing different ceramics along with their safety standards so as to ensure that these ceramic powders are used in number of applications, such as printing entire aircraft engine using 3D printing technology, in the coming years.
