The global 3D printing market was worth USD 2,200 million in 2012 and is expected to reach USD 7,240 million in 2019, growing at a CAGR of 16.8% from 2013 to 2019. 3D printing is a form of additive manufacturing, where a 3D object is created by layer-by-layer deposition of a printing material. The basic principles in 3D printing include flexibility of output, material cartridges and translation of code into a visible pattern. Various industries such as footwear, architecture and automotive among others use 3D printing. This technology is used for rapid prototyping, speedy manufacturing, mass customization and mass production. Manufacturers are increasing the use of this technology due to the ease of using this technology compared to the traditional methods.
