3D printing materials market will be worth $615M by 2025, if companies can keep prices high

An October IDTechEx report states that by 2015, the market for 3D printing material like plastics and metals could be worth $244 to $615 million. The spread comes from a big question: whether or not the industry will become competitive. Right now, companies can get away with charging upward of $40 or $50 for 2.2 pound spools of plastic.

The report also states that metal powders, which currently make up about 1.4 percent of the market, will see the most growth.
