Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) Technology Global 3D Printer Market to Reach USD 1.43 Billion by 2027 at 22.19% CAGR

DUBLIN, December 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) 3D Printer Market – Forecast 2022 to 2027 report has been added to supply.

Research and Markets Logo

The SLS 3D printer market was estimated at 353,600 million US dollars to 2020, growing at a CAGR of 22.19%, reaching a market size of 1438.37 million US dollars until 2027.

Selective laser sintering is a 3D printing process that uses a high-powered laser to bond powder particles together. The SLS printer offers the distinct advantage of providing inherent support to finished layers without support structures, compared to other 3D printing processes.

Also, because SLS printers only sinter the plastic, they can produce printed structures in minimal time. Sinterit recently introduced two new revolutionary SLS printers called the Lisa X and the NILS 480. The Lisa X became the fastest and largest compact SLS printer, while the NILS 480 became the first industrial SLS printer. These printers are also equipped to guide the user through post-processing. SLS printers are also easy to build and can be built at home using simple equipment. With projects like SLS4All announced by Tomas Starekwhich explains the process of building an SLS printer, it becomes significantly easier to understand, use and build SLS printers yourself.

FDA approved polypropylene

Recently, XYZprinting, a provider of 3D printing solutions, announced a collaboration with AM Polymers to provide two new materials for its selective laser sintering (SLS) machines. PP01 polypropylene powder for food and PB01 TPU powder for the footwear sector have been added to the line. Although PB01 is an excellent material for the production of shoe soles, the properties of PP01 are truly revolutionary.

XYZprinting’s SLS machines can now use AM Polymers’ PP01 polypropylene powder. It is a material with a high degree of detail, good chemical resistance at low density, 20 MPa tensile strength and 30 percent elongation at break. Because the powder is safe for food contact, it will be a popular choice for items used in kitchens and packaging. In addition, PP01 has a 50% refresh rate and a low cost per kilogram. This powder is ideal for applications in medicine, automotive, robotics and education, in addition to food. It can be used to make casings, ventilation systems and liquid storage containers. PP01 powder can also be recycled and reused by industries. With the added advantage of the large print area that the SLS printer offers, this material can be used to mass produce food-grade biodegradable items.

Pharmaceutical applications

SLS printers have the potential to rapidly produce drugs and revolutionize the pharmaceutical market. Because of the printer’s precision and speed, they are an ideal choice for pharmaceutical companies. It can be used for the rapid production of highly porous drugs (used to quickly dissolve pills) and a range of immediate release drugs and dosages. Its high precision helps in the production of complex geometrical pills and polypiles.

According to Dr. Christoph Huels, the founder of the Merck Group, manufacturers primarily focus on SLS printers because they have found that they produce oral solid dosage forms with desirable mass, hardness, roughness and shape, as well as tablets with uniform API content and comparable dissolution to traditional manufacturing. . SLS printers are also known for their ability to mass produce consumer-ready products in a fraction of the time.
