The main objective for using 3D printing technology in automobiles is for economic fabrication of complex automotive components and prototypes.

The trend among consumers of repairing automobiles on their own at home by using guide or manuals of Do-It-Yourself (DIY) kits offered by automotive retailers, is anticipated to boost the DIY segment. Growing sales of hybrid and electric cars along with the conventional cars has triggered the demand for complex, customized spare parts thereby resulting in upsurge in repair services offered by OEM segment.

Asia Pacific is perceived to be a source of components for local companies and multinationals, who aim to supply low-cost components to prominent vehicle manufacturers.

Europe accounted for majority of the revenue share in 2018 and is expected to witness a steady CAGR over the forecast period, owing to the penetration of vehicles with enhanced safety features and stagnated sales. North America is expected to witness a similar growth. Furthermore, growing penetration of hybrid and electric vehicles is anticipated to improve the overall demand over the forecast period.
