3D Printed Automotive Components Market Introduction

OEMs have begun adopting new technologies to manufacture components and parts of vehicles, and the latest technique is known as additive manufacturing (AM) or 3D printing. This process of manufacturing utilizes the 3D printer to develop the design constructed file or CAD file into a fully functional object. This manufacturing technique enables the manufacture of diverse products of varying complexity, shape, size, and material. In the process of manufacturing, the computer operated machine or printer forms a three dimensional object.

The printer uses a combination of different materials such as powdered grains fused with different liquid molecules and projected the material layer by layer to form the desired structure. 3D printed components are highly durable, strong, and can resist higher temperatures. These benefits have prompted automobile manufacturers to shift from conventional manufacturing process to 3D printed manufacturing process.

3D Printed Automotive Components Market - Competitive Landscape

Automakers such as BMW have widely accepted the 3D printed automotive component. In 2018, the company announced plans to produce more than 200,000 components using 3D printing. The window guide rail for BMW i8 Roadster was developed by 3D printing and the company took only five days to develop it. In 2018, BMW Group built a new additive manufacturing campus to increase the production of 3D printed automotive components.

3D Hubs

Founded in 2013, 3D Hubs has production facilities in over 140 countries globally. The company, with headquarters in Amsterdam, Netherlands, has manufactured more than 2 million parts since 2013. The company’s business vertical include 3D printing, CNC machining, and injection molding.
