M&A Will Help Top 3D Printing Manufacturers Retain Their Lead, New Report Shows

LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UK, August 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — A new report from The Business Research Company, 3D Printing Devices, Services And Supplies Global Market Opportunities And Strategies To 2022, shows that the top three competitors in the 3D printing services market in 2017 were Materialise NV, Photo Labs Inc. and Gitim GmbH. These three companies make up about three quarters of the market. Materialise NV’s share is over half of the market. These global players are increasing their presence strategically across various geographies through acquisitions and collaboration. Strategic acquisitions include 3D Hubs’ purchase of Printivate, and BigRep’s acquisition of NOWlab. The aim of the 3D Hubs’ acquisition was to improve 3D file handling and printability prediction, while by buying NOWlab BigRep will be able to offer a wide range of material and design consultation services.

In contrast to the global players, the small domestic companies are finding it difficult to compete, particularly on quality, price, and technological innovation. They thus provide the global players with significant acquisition opportunities.

The global market for 3D printing devices, services and supplies was valued at $5.7 billion in 2015 and is expected to reach $27.8 billion in 2022f, growing at a CAGR of 25.8% during the forecast period of 2016e to 2022f. This rapid growth rate is easy to explain. 3D Printing can deliver more benefits than just the ability to develop new devices. The two greatest problems that most manufacturers face when bringing a device to market are tooling costs and stringent regulatory processes. 3D printing has the potential to reduce tooling costs and accelerate lead time and regulatory submissions substantially when compared to conventional methods.

Industry growth is primarily driven by technological developments in healthcare 3D printing as well as growing government and private funding to support the development of new 3D printing technologies. The growing demand for organ transplantation and ease of development of customized medical products by 3D printing offers new growth opportunities for the companies operating in this market.
