    What is 3D Printing Plastics?

    3D Printing Plastics are a group of materials designed for use in additive manufacturing processes. They are formulated to be compatible with various 3D printing technologies, such as Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) and Stereolithography (SLA). Common 3D printing plastics include PLA (Polylactic Acid), ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene), PETG (Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol), Nylon, and TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane). These plastics offer a range of properties, from biodegradability to high strength and flexibility, making them suitable for diverse applications, including prototyping, functional parts, and flexible components. The choice of 3D printing plastic depends on the desired characteristics of the printed object.

    Market Drivers

    Forward integration by major polymer manufacturers is one of the major drivers propelling the growth of the global 3D printing plastics market. In addition, the demand for bio-based plastics and the growing demand for 3D printing technology in various applications in end-use industries are the other prime factors impacting the 3D printing plastics market significantly.
