Meticulous Research® – leading global market research company is researching on 3D food printing market titled “3D Food Printing Market by Technology (Fused Deposition Modeling, Sintering, Binder Jetting), Material (Natively Printable Materials, Alternative Ingredients), Vertical (Government, Commercial, Residentials), End Users (Confectionery Manufacturers, Restaurants, Bakery Manufacturers, Dairy Manufacturers) – Global Forecast to 2025”.Meticulous Research® in its latest publication on 3D Food Printing Market states that global 3D food printing market will increase at a CAGR of 30-40% from 2019 to 2024 to cross $450 million by 2024
The possibilities of 3D food printing technologies into the food industry are now in the expansion phase. From pizzas to personalized foods, 3D food printing technology is being adopted by many food industry professionals for producing unique food items. Although 3D food printing technology is relatively new in the food space, this type of technology is already prominent in the medical device, automotive, defense, and aerospace industry. The presence of 3D food printing is growing as more major players in the food industry take notice of this innovative technology.
The incorporation of this new technology into the food space brings a lot of benefits to manufacturers. In recent years, many companies boosted the visual appeal of their food products by designing new shapes which can be manufactured using a 3D printer. Additionally, the labor cost for creating culinary art can be very expensive for industry professionals; a new 3D food printer on site can cut costs significantly.
