3D printing involves the creation of a 3 dimensional object by adding successive layers of a particular material one on top of each other until the overall object has been formed. 3D printing has come a long way since the initial years of experimentation. The printers can be used to manufacture components of machines which do not undergo too much wear and tear as of now. With the success of the printing of a number of devices, 3D printers are now being looked upon for military applications. 3D printers can now be used for a host of applications limited only by the type of material which can be used for printing. The materials which are used for 3D printing are unique for particular applications.

3D printing plastic which is used for 3D printing should have the necessary properties to allow for proper structural integrity of the product that is being made. Plastics are by far the most used material by 3D printers. They were used in the initial stages of the onset of 3D printers because of the ability of the plastic being shaped easily whilst still being rigid enough to form the desired product. Very recently, NASA had been using 3D printers in space with plastic as the main material for the objects that are printed in space. A key advantage to using plastic in space is that once the use of the end-product is over, it can be melted, recycled and used again if required.

The market is expected to be worth close to $900 million by 2021 growing at a CAGR in the range of 25 to 30 percent during the forecast period.
