Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/2t5kx9/3d_printing) has announced the addition of the “3D Printing Materials 2015-2025: Status, Opportunities, Market Forecasts” report to their offering.

Pricing, Properties And Projections For Materials Including Photopolymers, Thermoplastics And Metal Powders

This report covers the current and future status, opportunities and market forecasts of 3D printing materials. It contains many illustrative and analytical figures and tables plus profiles of 16 companies, from across the globe, who supply a wide variety of materials for 3D printing. Interviews with 8 industrial end-users describe their experiences with 3D printing and give insight into their needs.

This new interest inspired developments in many technologies to 3D print a wider variety of materials. A brief overview of each of these technologies is outlined in this report. But not all materials are equal. This report outlines the advantages and disadvantages of printing in different materials, the applications of each, and technical data on the properties of 3D printed materials, which often differ from their traditionally manufactured analogue. These new materials mean there has been space for many new companies, and also many acquisitions by 3D printer manufacturers. Information on start-ups, closures, mergers and acquisitions is included.

This massive growth in the use and applications of 3D Printers is encouraging a massive growth in the market for 3D Printing Materials. Detailed forecasts, using information from interviews with 50 key players in the industry and disclosed financial information, estimate seven key materials are expected to have a total market of over $8B by 2025.

This report includes detailed state of the market, in terms of market value and volume, for:

– Photopolymers
