在2018年至2023年的預測期內，預計全球汽車3D列印市場的複合年成長率將達到約25％。3D列印技術的用途非常廣泛。通常用於製造流程的原型和工具等。從設計理念到終身維修，汽車行業已將3D列印納入了所有流程和功能。3D列印的優勢包括創新的設計，高適應性水準，最短的上市時間，以及無需昂貴工具就能製造零件的能力。汽車行業的3D列印機廣泛用於工具和原型製造，減少了創建原型的周轉時間。因此，原始設備製造商現在可以使用3D列印以最低的成本一夜間列印原型。Local Motors是首批使用巨型列印機製造底盤和車身零件的汽車行業商業化3D列印的製造商之一。此外，福特汽車公司使用3D列印機製造樹脂、矽石粉末、沙子和金屬原型，以製造汽車零件。Johnson Controls Automotive Seating是一家汽車零零件製造商，生產複雜形狀的商用3D列印金屬零件，這些零件使用傳統的焊接方法很難生產。重大進展包括金屬3D列印，速度列印，列印焊接等。
The global automotive 3D printing Market is expected to register a CAGR of 21.23%, during the forecast period, 2019-2024.
A surge in raw material prices and inconsistency in the global economy have forced the automotive sector to seek cost-efficient strategies - from the prototyping stage as well. Advancements in techniques and materials employed in additive manufacturing are expected to create new frontiers for 3D printing in the automotive sector. Local Motors is one of the first manufacturers to commercialize the use of 3D printing in the automotive sector by manufacturing chassis and body parts using giant 3D printers. Ford Motor Company employs 3D printers to produce prototypes of resin, silica powder, sand and even metal for the manufacture of its vehicle components.
For effective production optimization and adoption of additive manufacturing, techniques like 3D printing are inevitable for automakers. This can be witnessed from Mitsubishi's purchase of its first 3D printer in 2013, rather delayed compared to their counterparts. Using this technology for prototyping has proved to be a highly cost-efficient and time-saving achievement. Ford produces prototypes for cylinder head water jacket using 3D printing, the expenditure on which was close to USD 2,000, unlike the conventional template production, which costs around USD 20,000.
The global automotive 3D printing market has been segmented by technology type, material type, application type, and geography.
The FDM is among the most commonly used method of 3D printing in the automotive industry. The flexibility of the method to be used from manufacturing of the prototypes, concept model parts and also final products helps it in maintaining a significant share in the automotive 3D printing market. This computer-aided method derives inputs from a processing unit for the model which it has to print and starts the printing process bottom up. Materials like thermoplastics are generally used in the process which results in the ultra-light final products. Advanced high-performance engineering grade thermoplastics can also be used in the process which produces a tough, strong and incredibly light products.
The supporting ecological impacts of the process such as the minimal wastage and negligible carbon footprint are also supporting the process to be mass adopted by the industry shortly. Recent advancements in the FDM technology which makes it compatible to 3D print parts with materials such as Carbon Fibre and Carbon fiber reinforced plastics makes the process even more essential to the automakers. The growing stringency of the automotive regulatory authorities has started the race of manufacturing light and safe vehicle. In order to manufacture such vehicles, the automobile manufacturers are turning their heads towards exotic materials such as carbon fibers. The ability of the FDM method to 3D print automotive parts of carbon fiber helps the automakers in reducing the manufacturing cost and time of the products and also in decreasing the ecological impacts of other manufacturing processes.
Many automotive manufacturing giants such as Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Tesla, Audi, Koenigsegg, Shelby, etc. have already embraced the 3D printing technology in the manufacturing process.
The high research and development spending of the automotive manufacturers in the region is driving the 3D printing market in the region. The presence of the major automotive manufacturers in the region such as Volkswagen, Mercedes, BMW, Koenigsegg, etc. using the technology in the present vehicles makes Europe a major market for the automotive 3D printing technology.
German automotive industry is regarded as the leader in the automotive industry with industry giants such as Volkswagen, Daimler-Mercedes, BMW, Porsche, etc. The automotive industry in the country accounts for the majority of the R&D spending of the country with a share of over 35%. Though the 3D printing market is still in its nascent stages, many manufacturers such as the BMW, Daimler, etc. have been using the technology for a long time.
For instance, BMW has been using the technology since 1990 when the inauguration of the Rapid Technology Centre took place. In the early stages, the company used the stereolithography to produce some prototypes and concept, design models. With the advent of the 3D printing technology, the company moved further thereby adopting the technology to produce almost all of the company's prototypes and concept models. As the process proved to be economically and environmentally better than the conventional manufacturing methods, the company plans to introduce the method in production and manufacturing facilities as well. By introducing the technology in the production of the vehicles, the company aims to reduce the production times and production costs by eliminating the tooling and finishing processes.
Major players operating in the market are Voxeljet AG, Stratasys Ltd, the Exone Company, Materialise NV, Arcam AB, 3D Systems Corporation, Eos GmbH, amongst others.
