3D Printing Filament Market: Drivers & Challenges

Market Driver:

  • Rising Demand for 3D in Various End-User Industries

As the application of 3D printing is increasing in various industry, the need for advanced materials is high, resulting in the designing of new and innovative material by various 3D printing filament manufacturers. Demand for advanced 3D printing filament material is continuously rising in the end-use industries demanding quality coupled with high performance. Many 3D filament players are investing in developing 3D printing filament material with superior chemical, thermal, electrical, and performance to encounter the need for key end-use industries including defense, aerospace, and consumer goods. These factors are likely to spur the growth of the market

Market Restraint:

  • Potential Health Hazards for Workers from 3d Printing Filaments

According to recent studies by the Illinois Institute of Technology, 3D printers emit 200 million to 200 billion tiny toxic particles per minute while processing the filament. These particles when inhaled can penetrate to the lungs, cause irritation, and can also reach the brain. The printers use elements such as nylon filament that emits caprolactam which can cause serious stomach, neurologic, and heart conditions. Some printers using ABS filament emit styrene which could cause cancer as well. ABS filaments produce more particulate emissions as compared to PLA; however, both filaments produce significant amounts of emissions that lead to health concerns. With wear and tear, the levels of ultrafine particles (UFPs) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) produced in 3D printers increase, leading to various health hazards.
