Selective Laser Sintering Equipment Market – Introduction

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is a form of Powder Bed Fusion (PBF), in which a base of powder polymer, metal or resin is targeted fully (melting) or partially (sintering) by high-power directional source of heat, like laser. This technique results into the formation of a solid layer of fused powder. Selective laser sintering is a process that is widely in the accelerating additive manufacturing field.

Adoption of selective laser sintering equipment is likely to grow, owing to the growing government investments in 3D printing projects and ability of these equipment to create parts with enhanced mechanical properties without any build support. These factors helped the selective laser sintering equipment market value roughly US$ 340 million in 2018. The selective laser sintering equipment is witnessing steady traction for creating prototypes across diverse industries.
