3D printing refers to a process wherein three-dimensional solid objects are prepared using a digital file. These objects are manufactured using additives and a layered development framework, which prevents the need for drilling and cutting. As compared to the conventional printing technology, 3D printing is stable, durable, flexible and eliminates wastage of raw materials. According to IMARC Group’s 3D printing market analysis, the market reached a value of US$ 9.2 Billion in 2018.
