worldwide shipments of 3d printers to reach over 2.17 lakh in 2015: gartner | bengaluru news - times of india
Bangalore: global shipments of 3D printers (3DPs) According to Gartner\'s latest forecast, it will reach 217,350 units in 2015, up from 108,151 units in 2014. Shipments of 3D printers will more than double every year from 2015 to 2018, when global shipments are expected to reach more than 2 units. 3 million. \"As we pointed out last year, the 3D printer market is at an inflection point,\" said Pete barryer, vice president of research. \"The growth rate of unit shipments of 3D printers has been at low single digits and double digits per year for 30 years since the invention of the first 3D printer, and starting in 2015, this number will increase significantly. Even though the forecast numbers look aggressive, keep in mind that even 2. We expect 3 million shipments to be sold in 2018 to account for only a fraction of the total potential market for consumers, businesses and government organizations worldwide. \"The Seven technologies make up the 3D printer market, and because of the large adoption of 3D printers by consumers around the world, the cost is less than $1,000, material extrusion has led to growth in the market by 2018. The main market drivers for \"consumer\" 3D printers are lower prices, higher performance and expanded global availability. The main \"enterprise\" drivers for the 3D printer market are the feasibility of 3D printing technology in prototyping and manufacturing, as well as lower 3D printer costs, improved quality and wider materials. \"The increase in the number of high material extrusion shipments has basically driven the prediction of 3D printers,\" he said . \"Basiliere. \"New suppliers are entering the market, sometimes directly, and sometimes through crowdfunding activities, which seems to be going on every day. These suppliers are taking advantage of the opportunity for early extrusion technology patents to expirecost, low- Pricing equipment mainly for consumers. \" End- User spending on 3D printers varies depending on technology and shipments, but other market forces also play a role. Material extrusion spending is affected by a large number of startups and small companies around the world that use low thresholds to sell consumer 3D printers for less than $500. Whether these startups and small companies have enough revenue to pay not only for their production and overhead costs, but also for services, sales, channel development, R & D and owner profits. Instead, technology providers, such As demand for equipment increases, energy deposition and powder bed fusion will be able to maintain prices and add value in a way other than an expensive price war to attract and retain corporate buyers. Gartner predicts, User spending on material extrusion technology will increase from $0. 789 billion in 2015 to around $6. 2018 9 billion. Overall, end- User spending on 3D printers is expected to increase from $1. It was around $6 billion to $13 in 2015. 4 billion in 2018, thanks to increased acceptability in the consumer and enterprise markets, technologies such as value-added tax convergence and material injection led this growth. Average selling price (ASPs) Technology and market forces are also different. Each market has different dynamics, including a combination of devices that drive the average value of all 3D printers in a given technology, prices, and buyer requirements. \"Manufacturers will try to increase functionality and improve performance in the first few years, rather than lowering the price of the printer,\" he said . \"Basiliere. \"As a result, after growth in 2014 or 2015, the ASPs of some technologies are expected to increase or decrease gradually in the coming years. Directed- The price of the energy deposition printer is the highest, followed by the powder bed fusion printer. As more and more participants enter the market, products with lower prices in both technologies, ASPs for material extrusion and vat optical polymerization printers are expected to decrease. \"Shipments in the price range are affected by the 3D printer technology represented in it. Particularly noteworthy is the lowest $1. to- $1,000 and $1,001to- The $2,500 band dominated by material extrusion equipment. 3D printers for less than $1,000 make up $11. These bands accounted for 6% of the total in 2014, but will grow to 28. $ 1%-to- It reached $2,500 by 2018. With the strong use of consumers and businesses, Gartner expects low adoption with more and more organizations End and mid-range printers for testing and testing. The plug-and-play function will drive the growth of the consumer 3D printer market from 2015. While the ecosystem is still complex, entering the manufacturer The horizontal material extrusion printer uses a relatively simple \"plug\"and- Print \"function. Lock and other functions- In terms of materials, usually only provided by the supplier- As with 2D printers, specific cartridges maximize the possibility of material work. The automatic leveling bed and heating construction room also helps with simpler setup Make it easier for consumers to \"click print\" and produce 3D products successfully. So 10% of 3D printers that cost less than $1,000 will have plug-insand- Printing capacity by 2016. Download the India Times news app in the latest city.
