The sales of 3D printed packaging are expected to record a compound annual growth rate of 7.8% during the forecast period.

The 3D printed packaging market size is projected to be valued at US$1.210 billion in 2023 and is expected to rise to US$2.6 billion by 2033, according to a new report from Future Market Insights. The sales of 3D printed packaging are expected to record a compound annual growth rate of 7.8% during the forecast period.

In the past decade, the use of additive manufacturing in the packaging sector has increased significantly, providing a range of material options, including metal, plastics and even food.

Currently, numerous industrial and commercial 3D printing installations operate as stand-alone units as they are not integrated into the overall manufacturing environment and workflow.

Leadership in the global 3D printing marketplace is expected to remain in North America and Western Europe.

Highly advanced materials, such as biodegradable plastics, nanomaterials, and conductive materials, are projected to emerge in the market. 

The trend of hybrid printing combines 3D printing with traditional printing technologies such as screen printing or offset printing is predicted to gain traction in the packaging market. 

Mass customization is gaining steam in the 3D printing sector.
