Additive Manufacturing Global Market Report 2022: High Adoption of Additive Manufacturing in the Automotive and Aerospace Sector Drives Growth –

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Additive Manufacturing by Technology by Printer Type by Material by Application by Component and by End-User – Global Opportunity Analysis And Industry Forecast 2022-2030” report has been added to’s offering.

Additive Manufacturing (AM) market, also known as 3D printing and additive layer manufacturing, was valued at USD 14.39 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 83.56 billion by 2030 at a CAGR of 21.2% during the forecast period from 2022 to 2030.

The additive manufacturing market growth can be attributed to the rising demand for 3D digital printing in the aerospace industry as 3D printing enables rapid prototyping, replacement, consolidation of multiple parts, and building tooling fixtures. For instance, in May 2021, NASA partnered with Aerojet Rocketdyne to advance 3D printing technologies and its capabilities for liquid rocket engines in landers and on-orbit spacecraft.

On the contrary, high costs and lack of standardization of equipment restrains the growth of the industry. However, the introduction of 3D printers that can create prototypes of electronic components such as 3D printed circuit boards (PCBs), antennae, and capacitors is expected to create ample opportunities for the additive manufacturing industry in the coming years.
