Automotive 3D printing market in lectron beam melting is expected to significant growth during the forecast period. The technology utilizes high-power electron laser to melt & fuse metal alloy powders used for the fabrication of automotive components in accordance with the electronic data. The electronic laser managed by the electronic foils provides extremely fast & accurate beam control, enabling the manufacturers to maintain numerous melting points simultaneously. Furthermore, the electron laser heats the powder bed to optimal ambient temperatures specific to the material. Thus, the parts produced through the technology are free from residual stress.
Manufacturing is estimated to emerge as the most lucrative application of automotive 3D printing market. It is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of approximately 30% during the forecast timeline. The market is driven due to the superior properties and cost benefits offered by the 3D printing technology in the manufacturing process. It increases the manufacturing efficiency by eliminating the product assembly stage across the manufacturing cycle. The traditional manufacturing process is characterized by multiple production stages & interconnected storage of semi-finished products resulting in longer lead times. On the contrary, 3D printing manufacturing process is shorter & faster as multiple stages are combined into a single production step. This eliminates the need for intermediate material handling & intra logistics transport costs.
