Impact of COVID-19 on the market

The 3D Printing ceramic market growth is predicted to remain stagnate in 2020, however, growth is expected to pick up again after 2025. The 3D printing market will continue to generate revenue in 2020 even though not as much predicted earlier before the pandemic. The losses of the sales of 3D printers for the first half of the 12 months are expected to be compensated to a positive sales generated inside the second half of the year. This is expected because of backlog orders throughout all end-consumer industries. Also, the disruption inside the international deliver chain has forced businesses to observe technology, which permit for remote production abilities without the need for funding in huge regions. The 3D printing material like ceramic sales will follow a similar trend like that of printer, with few of the key players investing more on emerging material types.
