With the reduction in the cost of 3D printers, they have become more accessible to
small entrepreneurs and consumers who were unable to afford the very expensive technology
in the past. This has sparked innovation and creativity, enabling them to create custom
objects and spare parts for everything from toys to artificial limbs. This new technology
has enabled entrepreneurs to bypass other expensive manufacturing processes and take a
product idea directly to market. Thus, the rapid growth of 3D printing among entrepreneurs
and consumers will continue to drive the Global 3D Printers market during the forecast

According to the report, the increased need to reduce the time-to-market of products
is one of the major drivers in the market. 3D printers facilitate the production of
reliable and cost-effective products and reduce the need for multiple prototypes and
analysis time, thereby reducing the product development cycle time.

Further, the report states that the main challenges faced by the market are the
intellectual property rights issues and the copyright issues. With the increase in the
trend of using 3D printing technology, the cases relating to patent infringement and
intellectual property rights will increase considerably, which might hamper the growth of
the Global 3D Printers market.
