Potential ! 3D Printing for the plastic industry has brought unlimited business opportunities

3D printing in the print quality on the appearance quality of products plays a dominant role. 3D printing will no doubt become the next 10 years, health care, construction and trade promotion techniques, 3D printing of plastic as an important raw material, and ushered in what are the opportunities and challenges in the next 10 years?16213WR1-0SmarTech, a world renowned consultancy company recently promulgated the next 10 years, plastic printed 3D application market forecasts, assessment of new plastic materials, including polycarbonate, polystyrene, TPU, PET, PBA, polyvinyl alcohol, POM and alternative bio-plastic, transparent materials, flexible materials and nano-reinforced plastic. Pointed out that the report would become competitive advantages of 3D printing company.
Many OEM companies are looking for plastic materials can be lucrative in the coming years, even d printing company started buying materials research and development company. Meanwhile, the main company d print materials as a profitable niche market, and seize the opportunities.ABS and PLA–the Green imperative16213S352-1
30, the most of the major companies use ABS as prototype production, this will strengthen the position of the ABS as the 13th d print media materials. Can be used for a wide variety of 3D printing ABS material, is unmatched anywhere in the other plastic material. High quality ABS market offers different types of products, their color, transparency, fire and chemical resistance even comparable with other traditional materials. But due to the lack of standardization of single fiber, ABS single fiber more dispersed markets, makes it impossible for suppliers to pursue greater productivity. In the past few years, the industry has started to 1.75 mm monofilament fiber diameter as standard processing diameter. ABS can bring many benefits, it will also face challenges. In the past 10 years, due to the physical properties of ABS material limitations, it can bring personal 3D printing restrictions. Although ABS are the most common material 3D printing materials market, but it won’t bring in someone like nylon or resin can bring substantial revenue. PLA is a kind of green products that replace the ABS, gradually applied in 3D printing. With the increasing plastic green to the traditional manufacturing process claims, PLA has become most materials used in the production. PLA part material is from corn starch, soybean, cassava, sugar cane, potato, wheat and many other plants to extract renewable lactose. Mixture of part of the PLA, like PLA4043D has adapted to become more eco-friendly materials. Many suppliers now provide PLA filament fiber for 3D printing, some of which are exclusive supply. Such as some Educational 3D Printers and Cheap 3D Pens.
Nylon-the new material and16213Va7-2 new suppliers, potential unlimited 3D printing materials market is the most common part of the ABS and the PLA, nylon is used is actually the largest material expected by 2019, nylon will occupy the 3D printed material market 30% market share. Nylon is towards the direction of function prototypes and Terminal manufacturing and application improvements. Nylon is used for high-temperature extrusion process, but also can show the melting characteristics in laser sintering process. On a global scale, nylon 6 is mainly used for conventional machining, such as injection molding. Laser sintering of nylon 12 is mostly used for additive manufacturing technology. Because people are better able to control the internal structure of the nylon part of 3D printing, fibers changes in sequence, so as to improve the performance of parts of the same-sex, able to work under pressure and deformation of objects to output programming. Therefore, nylon material printed in 3D will continue to maintain its competitive edge in the market. However, additive manufacturing suppliers of nylon powder is still limited. At present, only very few manufacturers of 3D printing in the production of nylon powder. Main suppliers are: win invasive, Arkema, Arzuano, ExcelTec and Rhodia. Some Chinese enterprises ‘ production of laser sintering nylon powder.

-The beginning of photosensitive resin in prototyping, immense
For 30 years, selectively curing of resin to form a structure. Since the technology is in its debut 30 years ago, 3D resin for prototype engineer brings a small but lucrative audience. Over the next decade, resin still has tremendous business opportunities, by SLA mass installation of equipment using more functional resin materials and terminal applications will appear in the dental industry.Next ten years is expected to market needs with the needs of 3D printed nylon resin. However, the resin for the largest applications are mainly prototypes. SLA machine can produce a highly accurate three dimensional prototype shape fitting test can be performed. These prototypes have gaskets, gears and hinges, automotive, medical, heavy machinery, parts manufacturing in the aerospace industry have a significant impact. SL equipment began in architecture and design-oriented industries such as electronics have a greater impact.Next 5-7 year improvement of the resin material, will allow engineers to produce more robust functional prototype parts. These functional prototype parts directly for use in high-performance automotive and aerospace industries. Photosensitive resin in the dental industry with special applications. 3D printing photosensitive resin supply chain is quite perfect. As these resins has a long history, a large number of professional and efficient chemical suppliers will be more willing to pay for 3D printing materials and manufacturing services.16213U550-4The next ten years
Three types of plastic ABS, PLA and nylon for the next 10 years to continue accounting for the lion’s share of 3D printing materials market. By 2019, the market demand will reach 13,000 tons of these materials. ABS and the PLA continues to meet the needs of amateur 3D printing, 3D printing brings strong business opportunities in the market for individuals.More durable polymer such as TPU, polycarbonate and nylon industry will gain more market share in the next decade. Application of new materials in 3D printing, to help professionals achieve product performance, providing lighter weight and better performance parts, reduced subordinated Setup, and even customized medical implants and dental solutions possible, which will bring more value to the related market segments. But now, as equipment manufacturers control of 3D printing materials supply chain, which reduced the field of materials.
