Dominance of: Civil Aviation and Engine Components

Based on the industry type, the aerospace 3D printing market is segmented into Civil Aviation, Military Aircraft, and Spacecraft. Civil aviation is expected to be the growth engine of the market during the forecast period. GE Aviation is the major company that has already started producing engine components in mass-volume using 3D printing technology. Rolls-Royce is another engine manufacturer that started making 3D-printed parts for its engines including Trent. Other major engine OEMs are also on the same path and have been working hard for the development of 3D-printed parts. Furthermore, increasing passenger traffic is creating a higher demand for new aircraft. Airlines are demanding lightweight aircraft in order to enhance their profitability. Major airframers are increasingly working for the development of advanced technologies including 3D printing in order to develop lightweight parts at a faster rate.

Based on the application type, the market is segmented into engine components, structural components, and space components. All three applications are expected to expand with a significant CAGRs over the next five years, owing to increasing aircraft deliveries coupled with growing penetration of lightweight materials and the 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. GE Additive and Pratt & Whitney prove to be the game changers in the aerospace 3D-printing engine segment in which GE Additive to hold the preeminent position.  

A highly/moderately/fragment consolidated Market

The key 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 supply chain of this market comprises raw material suppliers, 3D printer manufacturers, tier players, engine and aircraft OEMs, and airlines.

Regional Hegemony of North America

In terms of regions, North America is expected to remain the largest market for aerospace 3D printing during the forecast period. The region is the world’s manufacturing capital of the 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 the key economies such as China, Japan, and India.
