Additive Manufacturing market valued at over EUR 9 billion
The overall Additive Manufacturing market for metal and polymer material is valued at EUR 9.53 billion with a projected growth of CAGR 17.7 % until 2027. The industrial polymer Additive Manufacturing market is about 2 times the size of its metal equivalent. While system sales revenues in both markets are at a similar level, material and part manufacturing services are much more developed for polymers resulting in a larger share of revenue. The metal AM market alone is valued at EUR 3 billion in 2022 with an expected CAGR of 26.1 % until 2027.
Medical industry is leading system sales revenue
In 2022, the medical industry was the system suppliers’ prime customer. About 15 % of the total system sales revenue was generated in this vertical. Dental aligners, hearing aids, bone replacement endoprosthesis, or components for computed tomography scanners are only a few examples of medical devices which are in production using metal and polymer Additive Manufacturing technologies. The advantages of AM in terms of flexibility, design freedom and mass-customization meet the demand in this sector especially well. A growing material range, improved software platforms to further facilitate customizations to patient data and many other factors will continue to push medical AM applications to further growth in the future.
