Consumer and Industrial-major Market for 3-D Printing Materials
The 3-D Printing Materials Market is segmented into four types: plastics, metals, ceramics, and others. Each type of materials include a wide range of products such as plastics include ABS, PLA, Nylon, Photopolymers and Others; Metals include Steel, Silver, Gold, Titanium, Aluminum and Others; Ceramics include Glass, Silica, Quartz and others include Laywood, Wax, Paper and others. These individual 3-D printing materials have application specific demands that are differentiated by placement, cost, and efficiency. Plastic materials are useful in applications such as consumer printing and a few industries where consumer products are manufactured. Metals are especially used in high-end industries such as aerospace and defense, automotive, medical and dental, etc. Ceramics are useful in home decor, dine table, art and sculpture, and others. The use of these materials increases the efficiency of their applications.
