Aerospace 3D Printing Market Insights

The history of 3D printing in the aerospace industry traces back to 1988 with some A&D companies beginning experimentation with the technology. Over the years, the adoption of 3D printing technology in the aerospace industry has increased owing to benefits such as fabrication of parts with complex geometries, reduced weight, less scrap, and on-site part fabrication. Currently, the penetration of the 3D-printing technology in the aerospace industry is at nascent stage (<1%) but is subjected to grow at the highest rate among all the technologies (3D printing, AFP, ATL, compression molding, casting, etc.) in the foreseen future, assisting the technology to gain strong foothold in the aerospace industry.

The aerospace industry currently accounts for a 16.8% share of the 3D-printing market and is likely to grow at one of the fastest rates in years to come, generating huge growth opportunities for the market participants in years to come. Both aircraft manufacturers, as well as engine manufacturers, have eagerly been relying on the technology in order to develop lightweight parts.

As per Stratview Research, the aerospace 3D printing market is estimated at US$ 1,860.1 million in 2019 and is expected to grow at a strong CAGR of 16.9% over the next seven years to reach US$ 6,717.4 million in 2027. The Increasing production rates of the best-selling aircraft programs, such as A320 and B787, the introduction of fuel-efficient variants of aircraft programs, such as B777x and A320neo; growing satellite industry, increasing production of LEAP engines, exceptional benefits of 3D printing technologies across the supply chain of the aerospace industry, and advancements in 3D printing technologies are some of the major factors that are driving the 3D printing market in the aerospace industry, as per the report.

The services segment is expected to witness the highest growth in the market during the forecast period, based on vertical type. The development of new materials to 3D print components to withstand high temperatures and extreme environment is likely to boost the demand for 3D-printing materials in the years to come. Major aircraft manufacturers, such as Boeing and Airbus, are expediting the adoption of this technology in order to achieve faster production process, to reduce the wastage and shorten the supply chain.

The report also segments the market into engine components, structural components, and space components based on the application type. All three applications are expected to expand with a significant CAGR over the next five years, owing to increasing aircraft deliveries coupled with growing penetration of lightweight materials and development of parts with high precision at reduced time. However, engine components are estimated to witness the highest growth during the same period, driven by a high focus of major engine manufacturers including GE, Pratt & Whitney, and Rolls-Royce to develop engine parts of turbofan engines using the 3D printing technology.

As per the analysis, North America will be the largest market for aerospace 3D printing during the forecast period. The region is the world's manufacturing capital of aerospace industry with the presence of many large-to small-sized OEMs, tier players, and raw material suppliers. Major 3D printer manufacturers are also located in the region to cater to the growing regional demand for 3D printers as well as materials. Asia-Pacific is estimated to be the fastest-growing aerospace 3D printing market in the same period, primarily driven by an increasing presence of OEMs and tier players to tap the growing demand from key economies such as China, Japan, and India.

Some of the major players in the aerospace 3D printing market are 3D Systems Corporation, EnvisionTEC GmbH, EOS GmbH, GE Aviation, Hoganas AB, Materialise NV, Oerlikon Group, Renishaw plc, Stratasys Ltd., and The Trumpf Group. New product development, regional expansion, and long-term relation with customers are some of the key strategies adopted by the major players to gain a competitive edge in the market. The market is witnessing a consequential number of strategic collaborations/partnerships to develop mainstream applications. For instance, Norsk Titanium, a Norway-based company, has collaborated with NDTL, Pratt & Whitney, and TURBOCAM International to develop and test integrally bladed rotor (IBR) via 3D printing to be used within turbine engines. Similarly, Boeing in collaboration with Norsk Titanium is working on titanium structural components for its 787 Dreamliner jet.
