3D printing is used to create patterns and to print jewellery directly. The process of 3D printing creates three dimensional objects with the help of computer-aided-design (CAD) software. Computer-aided design (CAD) helps manufacturers to print molds and multiple patterns for jewellery that provides jewelers a new production method which is more cost-effective, less time consuming, and maintains high level of efficiency. Earlier, casting patterns were carved using wax by computer numerical control (CNC) machines. Nowadays, CNC machines are replaced by 3D printing that produces multiple patterns within a very short time period and reduces time and cost significantly as compared to the traditional pattern-making techniques such as wax CNC and aluminum molds for casting. Hence, 3D printing is expected to witness highest demand from the jewellery industry. In recent years, 3D printing has gained significant demand and has several applications in industries including manufacturing, medicine, architecture, custom art, and design.

Factors driving growth of the 3D printing in jewellery market

Changing consumer preferences and increasing fashion consciousness among end users are the major factors that are expected to drive the growth of the 3D printing in jewellery market during the forecast period. Aforementioned factors are driving the adoption of technologies such as CAD (computer-aided-design), laser technology, and induction technology among jewellery manufacturers. 3D printers with rapid prototyping (RP) technology help several designers to review design concepts and understand the requirements and complexity of any jewellery design. The adoption of such innovative manufacturing technologies in jewellery design is expected to boost the growth of the 3D printing in jewellery market.

Moreover, increasing popularity of e-commerce is also expected to favor the growth of the 3D printing in jewellery market. Jewelers are selling their jewels directly to the consumer via e-commerce platforms in order to increase sales volumes. The penetration of internet and adoption of smartphones increased access to online shopping. Increased consumer trust in online retail, faster shipping services and increased internet penetration plays major role in the growth of 3D printing in jewellery market. Additionally, players operating in the e-commerce industry have introduced augmented reality (AR) in online platforms which allow consumers to try jewellery virtually using AR, and select products according to their preferences.

However, 3D printing in jewellery designing requires skilled technicians to develop products, designs, material, and technology and data management. Adequate knowledge about 3D printing is also necessary to ensure seamless operations. The lack of skilled manufacturing expertise is one of the restraining factors that is expected to hamper growth of the 3D printing in jewellery market during the forecast period.
