3D printing also referred as additive manufacturing (AM), is a technique used to create a 3D object from a digital file. The 3D object is created by successive layering of material under computer control as additive process. Any 3D geometrical shaped object can be prepared using this process. A virtual design of 3D object is made using software's such as Computer Aided Design (CAD). From the year 2012, the 3D printing market got a global acknowledgement and continued to spur the manufacturing and sale of 3D printing devices.

The high degree of accuracy of manufactured products from optimal use of raw materials is a major factor bolstering the global 3D printing market. Using this technique, multiple materials can be employed for printing same object allowing to customize the product. In addition, it provides ample of savings on tooling over the traditional manufacturing techniques. A significant reduction in manufacturing cost and time can be achieved by applying 3D printing technique in production along with efficient logistics management. Additionally, human errors generated during development of an object can be minimized, thereby, delivering high quality output. The throughput of products is expected to increase post-implementation of 3D printing technique in manufacturing processes.
High production cost for an individual user is one of the factor hindering the global 3D printing market. Additionally, the setup and software required for implying 3D printing is costly, thereby further restricting it's to a limited number of users. Additionally, the production of large objects consumes more time with 3D printing as compared to traditional manufacturing methods showing the inability of a 3D printer to produce in bulk in quick time, thereby restricting the global 3D printing market. The lack of skilled labor capable of operating 3D printing...
