Food 3D Printing Market Research, 2031

The global Food 3D Printing Market Size was at $226.2 million in 2021, and is projected to reach $15.1 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 52.8% from 2022 to 2031.

Food 3D Printing Market

The food 3d printing market is segmented into Ingredient, End User and Technologies.

A food manufacturing and modification technique called food 3D printing allow for the creation of three-dimensional food products. An assembly of actuators, software, sensors, and storage containers—typically made of stainless steel or food-grade plastic—are coordinated to function together as a 3D food printer. Incorporating three-dimensional digital designs into delectable real-world foods, 3D food printing not only gives food ingredients three-dimensional shapes however preserves the product's style, framework, and texture. Insect, protozoan, or beet leaf proteins are converted into delectable products by this process, which is regarded to be harmless for the environment.  

 3D food printing offers the possibility to personalize food to consumers’ individual needs. The growth of the custom food market is the main reason behind the growth of the Food 3D Printing Market. People are often busy with work and are unable to taste their favorite foods due to lack of time hence technology plays a vital role in production of such food products. However, custom foods should be infused with the appropriate preservatives to keep them fresh. Frequent intake of preservatives is not good for health in the long run. Therefore, 3D food printing technology gives users the option of producing such food products at home without the use of preservatives.

The 3D Food Printer can print a variety of complex food designs that are not possible manually. A food-grade 3D printer consists of a food-grade syringe or cartridge containing the material, and the actual food, and deposits the exact sub layer by layer directly onto the plate or other surface through the food-grade nozzle. This food is a healthy source of nutrition for both adults and kids who want to enjoy foods such as pizza, chocolate, and pancakes in unique shapes and designs. Thus 3D food printing technology helps in production of healthy and nutritious food products in large quantity and in small time. Thus all these factors are expected to boost the market growth and increase Food 3D Printing Market technology penetration in restaurants, hotels, and residences. 3D food printing is currently used primarily for preparing foods for those with special nutritional needs e.g., dysphagia and associated eating-related conditions, as well as for snack and novelty products. It has the potential to decrease food waste by recycling foods, such as leftover cuts of meat, seafood scraps, and other vegetable. Thus such recycling food trends are expected to boost the adoption of 3D food printing technology across the globe. In addition, opportunities lie in the growing trend for alternative protein sources, such as insects, algae, duckweed, grass, spirulina, lupin seeds, and beet leaves, to produce foods that satisfy consumer taste and nutritional requirements. New forms and figures that were previously impossible to manufacture can now be produced, ranging from chocolates and other desserts to pasta shapes and protein patties. By adding hydrocolloids (examples are xanthan gum and gelatin) to maintain the form, fruits and vegetables in purée form can be extrusion printed. The fact that they can be easily extruded from a syringe supports their positive printability qualities. Using techniques such as these, 3D printing provides the opportunity to print one dish that contains all necessary daily nutrients.                         

Rise in demand for gourmet food is the major driver for the growth of the Food 3D Printing Market, owing to the expansion of the custom food market. owing to advancements in technology, people are frequently preoccupied with their jobs and unable to enjoy their favorite foods due to lack of time. To keep them fresh, however, proper preservatives need to be added to personalized foods. Preservative consumption on a regular basis is bad for health in the long run. Owingto this, 3D food printing technology allows users to offer fresh and handcrafted food. Thus, the increasing Food 3D Printing Market Demand for gourmet food is driving the market growth. Moreover, a higher focus on the development of nutritionally customized foods for enhanced health benefits is a factor further acting as a key driver of the 3D Food Printing market. In addition, the rise in the use of 3D printers in plant-based meat alternatives is another factor driving the market growth. The scientists developed a new sequence of plant-based components for 3D-printed meat substitutes in a study published in ACS Food Science & Technology. Their primary recipe for success called for the addition of a strange-sounding cocoa butter derived from cocoa beans, which are best known for their chocolate. Thus, the rise in the use of 3D printers in plant-based meat alternatives further boosts the 3D food printing market.

However, limitations in processing different ingredients hamper the growth of the market. The largest issue facing businesses using food 3D printers is the scarcity of food ingredients. Large-scale commercialization of 3D food printers is not possible since they lack all the necessary ingredients. Major firms in the Food 3D Printing Industry, such as Nestle (Switzerland) and Barilla (Italy), are collaborating with makers of 3D food printers to create ingredients with various nutritional compositions for these printers.
