Most indicators are confirmed as combined hardware, materials and service revenues are now forecasted to top $45 billion yearly by 2032, at a 23.3% CAGR.

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, February 12, 2024 / -- London, UK, February 12th, 2024: VoxelMatters Research, a leading market analysis company specializing in tracking the global additive manufacturing (AM) industry, released its new study on polymer additive manufacturing. The new report, Polymer AM Market 2023, was compiled during 2023 and looks at the last full calendar year (2022) to reveal that the market for polymer AM hardware, materials, and services generated $5.6 billion in 2022, growing by 19% year-on-year. The report forecasts the Core Polymer AM market to grow into a $45 billion yearly revenue opportunity by 2032, at a 23.3% CAGR.

Some key findings

The new data confirms the growth predictions made in the previous edition of this report, with all three core AM polymer segments now generating over $1 billion in yearly revenues. These figures are significant for the AM market, indicating growth in both part size and batch size. This trend is further analyzed and demonstrated in this report.

Compared to the forecast published in the previous edition of this report, there have been some adjustments to the CAGR forecast. The forecast for hardware has been slightly reduced due to slowdowns in hardware sales, while the forecast for AM services has been increased due to new companies entering the market and a general tendency for adopting companies to rely on service providers to avoid high initial CapEx. All segments are now expected to grow at similar rates during the 10-year forecast period, ranging between 22.8% and 23.8%. The AM services segment is projected to be the fastest-growing in this updated analysis.

In 2022, the Industrial, Automotive, Consumer, and Dental verticals were the four most significant sectors contributoring to the total revenue of the core polymer AM market. These four sectors accounted for nearly half (48%) of the market. Their impact will remain significant, as they are expected to account for approximately 50% of the total core polymer AM market by the end of the forecast period in 2032.

In terms of regions, North America (NA) was the largest region in terms of revenue in 2022. It is projected to grow from $2.3 billion to $16.6 billion, with a CAGR of 21.8%, and remain the largest region in 2032. The EMEA region is expected to grow from $1.8 billion to $15.8 billion, and the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region is set to rise from $1.4 billion to $12.4 billion.
