3D-Printed Footwear 2019-2029: An Analysis of the Market Potential of 3D Printing in the Footwear Industry - ResearchAndMarkets.com

April 15, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 15, 2019--The “3D-Printed Footwear 2019-2029, an Analysis of the Market Potential of 3D Printing in the Footwear Industry” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The 3D printed footwear industry to grow into an overall $5.9 billion revenue opportunity, making footwear arguably the single most relevant consumer vertical for 3D printing and representing 1.5% of overall global footwear revenues by 2029.

The use of additive manufacturing (AM) and revenues connected to 3D printed footwear products are projected to generate over $6.5 billion (USD) in yearly global revenues by 2029, growing at a 19.5% CAGR. The report also goes on to forecast that by 2023 over $1 billion (USD) will be generated by 3D printed footwear parts alone, including additively manufactured insoles, midsoles and uppers.

After eyewear, the next highly relevant consumer product that is expected to begin to reap the benefits of additive manufacturing for production and mass customizations is footwear. The researcher now presents the first ever in depth-analysis of additive manufacturing in the footwear segment.

The footwear segment stands to benefit from AM’s potential in mass customization and product personalization as much as other consumer product segments seen as key for AM adoption such as eyewear. This report analyzes the key trends and stakeholders that are driving the footwear automation and mass customization revolution as well as the elements that are limiting AM adoption.

Leveraging its knowledge of 3D printing processes and unique database of global AM materials and hardware sales, the researcher’s analysis explores the key applications for AM in the 3D printed footwear industry, including both current and upcoming relevant case studies, as well as ongoing and future developments. One primary objective of this report is to highlight the most relevant business opportunities that lie ahead for companies that are invested in the AM industry, including materials, hardware and service providers.

Another primary objective is to provide footwear industry stakeholders with an accurate description of all currently existing AM technologies, materials and services (including 3D capturing and online customization software).

The report will explain how footwear market operators can benefit from AM by acquiring a powerful competitive advantage, both in terms of traditional manufacturing (through faster and more cost effective prototyping and mold-making) and through a more automated and customized production, through implementation of direct digital and additive manufacturing processes.
