Drivers & Restraints

Regular Requirements for Light-Weight Components by the Defense Sector to Drive Market

Huge investment towards 3D additive manufacturing and reduced timeline based supply chains are expected to boost the service’s adoption rate. Integration of 3D printing technology towards technological research for advanced battlefield prospects and the defense sector’s heavy push towards wanting light-weight material will fuel the growth of the market. Further, decreasing acquisition costs for manufacturing processes will foster a higher military 3D printing market growth.

However, a higher cost of production and the lack of a global standard towards manufacturing will hamper the market to a certain extent. Additionally, lack of material availability will further drain the value of the market during the forecast period.

Regional Insights

North America to Gain Highest Market Value

North America will register a substantial market value due to early adoption of the technology along with rapidly increasing integration of 3D printing services by various defense OEMs. Also, rising demand for precise manufacturing needs arising from the aerospace, chemicals, and automotive sector will add to the market value.

Asia Pacific will occupy the fastest growing CAGR due to increased adoption of the technology within emerging economies such as China, Japan, Australia, South Korea, and India. Moreover, increased penetration of the international players towards the region and rising applicability will increase the footprint of the market.

Competitive Landscape

The prominent players in the market concentrate by announcing innovative products for raising their market value. The current competitive landscape is fragmented between the dominant market players focusing towards developing efficient supply chains in order to keep up with consumer demand and players focusing on increasing their consumer base by mergers and acquisitions with like-minded organizations.

For example, in March 2019, ARC Group Worldwide Inc. was acquired by Aerojet Rocketdyne Holdings Inc. for expanding their product line across industrial, medical, defense, and aerospace. This expansion is aimed at expanding the presence of defense players towards developing specific artifacts for giving them a leading advantage over their counterparts.

Industry Development

  • January 2021: Naval Group, which is a French naval defense contractor developed a DED-based process based on metal wire fusion for a 3D printed propeller for a French ship called Andromeda. Andromeda is a Tripartite-class minehunter.
  • February 2021: ExOne Company was granted a defense contract of USD 1.6 million from the U.S. Department of Defense for developing a self-contained 3D printing facility in their 12-meter long shipping container. This manufacturing facility is expected to be used for deployment solutions via land, sea, or air for providing rapid military equipment supply through its quick action capabilities.
