Software in the 3D printing industry is often described as the 'glue' that holds together the ongoing advancements in both hardware and print materials, and as a result is becoming a significant development target for many of the world's largest 3D printing stakeholders. Today, the market for software products is in a state of significant flux and change, resulting from the juxtaposition created by end users of 3D printing technology further exploring direct manufacturing applications alongside traditional uses involving prototyping and tooling. Meanwhile, as the vision for additive manufacturing as a leading advanced digital manufacturing process having been set and adopted by major manufacturers worldwide, software elements required to enable that vision are now also being defined and developed.

In this report, the second in the first ever global report series to define and quantify the 3D printing software market, SmarTech expands its original vision and market analysis to include the key software tools which we believe will define additive manufacturing over the next two decades. New analysis includes trends and insights for software to support in-situ process monitoring of 3D printing, additive manufacturing process simulation tools, and more. Segmentation of the global software opportunity is further refined in this study to include software opportunities by print process, material family, and beyond.

SmarTech's leading market forecasts for defining and quantifying the 3D printing software market included in this report include:

  • Ten-year market forecasts for revenues generated by the sale of software to support 3D printing split by tool functionality, by end user market, by printing process, and by print material family through 2027
  • Ongoing estimates of overall 3D printing penetration and adoption from leading adopting industry segments for the sale of site-based software licenses for various 3D printing tools
  • Pricing trends for software supporting 3D printing, global printer installation forecast data, and much more

This report monitors and provides insight on ongoing trends in 3D printing software markets, including key areas which are creating the current market scenario, such as:

  • the drive from leading CADCAM tool providers worldwide to integrate more advanced 3D printing workflow and manufacturing-related functionalities resulting from increased demand to support AM initiatives from global manufacturers
  • efforts to produce a continuum of software-enabled quality assurance solutions for additive manufacturing, beginning with AM process simulation, and ultimately following through with in-situ process monitoring and post printed 3D inspection tools
  • strategic complications arising from the significantly differentiated workflows between prototyping and manufacturing applications for AM, and the resulting efforts by the broader community to address the software needs of customers leveraging printers in these different roles

This report remains the only study in the history of the industry to tackle the complex topic of 3D printing software and its evolving opportunities, and should be considered critical for industry stakeholders developing printing hardware and new software tools.
