As per research by Grand View Research, the aftermarket repair market is set to grow rapidly with advanced 3D production capabilities which are being utilized by many manufacturers.
Take Rolls-Royce Dawn 2016 which is expected to use the 3D printing technology for fabrication of mounting brackets for wire hoses and fibre-optic cables. With new cutting-edge technologies on spares, the post-sales repair market is bound to grow.
Other manufacturers like Daimler AG (Germany) and BMW Group (Germany) are utilising the 3D production capabilities in producing spare parts and associated automobile components.
Paints, clear coatings, and consumables like auto parts and other spares are being used extensively in the accident repair markets. With autonomous and electric vehicles taking centre stage in the automobile industry, the technology will further increase the cost in the aftermarket repair regimens.
