3D Printing Material Market: Introduction
3D printing materials are utilized to make a 3 dimensional object where consecutive layers of specific material are designed to manufacture another object. 3D printing involves various processes for creating 3D printing material including fused filament fabrication (FFF), selective laser melting (SLM), stereo lithography (SLA) and among others. Digital file containing information for configuration of desired object and materials utilized act as intermediate between resultant product and 3D printers. 3D printing materials are utilized in three forms i.e., filament, powder, and liquid. Polymers (plastics), ceramics, and metals, among others are key materials utilized 3D printing. Polymers are most commonly utilized printing materials. Presently, across the globe 98% of hearing aids are manufactured using 3D printing process. Smartphone producers are also using these 3D printing technologies to manufacture several components of smartphones.
