3D printing is the process of creating solid three-dimensional objects from a digital file. 3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, involves layering materials such as plastics, composites, and biomaterials to create objects that vary in shape, size, rigidity, and color. Currently, there are nine basic types of 3D printing. Japan has an aging population, which is driving demand for customized medical devices and implants. 3D printing technology can be used to produce these devices quickly and at a low cost. Furthermore, Japan has a rich cultural heritage, and 3D printing technology can be used to preserve and replicate cultural artefacts and monuments. This technology can help to protect Japan's cultural heritage and make it more accessible to the public. Moreover, Japan has a vibrant creative industry, and 3D printing technology can be used to produce customized and unique products for the fashion, art, and design sectors. Furthermore, Metal 3D printing is becoming increasingly popular in Japan, particularly in the aerospace and medical industries. Metal 3D printing allows for the production of complex, high-precision parts that are difficult to manufacture using traditional methods. The most popular 3D printer manufacturers in Japan include Mimaki Engineering, Keyence, Canon Inc., Ricoh, Panasonic, and many more. Japan has a vibrant 3D printing industry, with a range of service providers offering a variety of 3D printing services. Some of the most popular 3D printing service providers in Japan includes Rinkak, Kabuku, Tokyo 3D Printing Lab, Monozukuri Hub, FabLab Japan, and many more. Some of the most popular 3D printing resellers in Japan includes SolidWorks Japan, NTT Data Engineering Systems, Brulé, Omnitech, Data Design, and many more. According to the research report "Japan 3D Printing Market Research Report, 2028," published by Actual Market Research, the Japan 3D Printing market is projected to reach market size USD 3.65 Billion by 2028. Japan is known for its innovative technology, and the 3D printing industry is no exception. Japanese companies are developing advanced 3D printing technologies and materials that are driving the growth of the industry. Furthermore, Japan has a strong manufacturing industry, and 3D printing technology is being adopted by manufacturers to increase efficiency and reduce costs. 3D printing allows manufacturers to produce complex, customized parts more quickly and at a lower cost than traditional manufacturing methods. Moreover, education and research Japan has a strong education system and research culture, and 3D printing technology is being used in both areas. 3D printing can be used to produce teaching aids, models, and prototypes, and is also being used in research to produce custom equipment and tools. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need for resilient supply chains, and 3D printing technology can help in this regard. By producing parts locally using 3D printing, companies can reduce their reliance on foreign suppliers and ensure continuity of operations. Stereolithography (SLA) is one of the most popular 3D printing processes used in Japan. This is because SLA can produce highly detailed and precise parts with a smooth surface finish, making it well-suited for applications in the medical, dental, and jewellery industries. Additionally, Japan has a strong focus on quality and precision, which makes SLA an attractive option for manufacturers who need to produce high-quality, intricate parts. Furthermore, another popular 3D printing process used in Japan is Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), which is a more affordable and accessible option for small businesses and hobbyists. FDM is often used to produce prototypes, tooling, and low-volume production parts. There are several 3D printing materials used in Japan, including photopolymer resin, which is the most common material used in stereolithography (SLA) 3D printing, which is a popular 3D printing process in Japan. Resin is used to create high-quality, high-detail parts that are used in the medical, dental, and jewellery industries. Furthermore, nylon is a strong and durable material that is commonly used in selective laser sintering (SLS) 3D printing, which is also a popular process in Japan. Nylon is often used to produce parts for the automotive and aerospace industries. Moreover, Metal 3D printing is growing in popularity in Japan, and metal powders such as titanium and stainless steel are commonly used in powder-based 3D printing processes like SLS and electron beam melting (EBM). In addition, ABS and PLA are commonly used in fused deposition modelling (FDM) 3D printing, which is a more affordable and accessible option for small businesses and hobbyists in Japan. Some of the major tech expos for 3D printing in Japan include International 3D Printing Exhibition (3DPrintingJapan) is one of the largest 3D printing expos in Japan, held annually in Tokyo. The event attracts a range of exhibitors and visitors from around the world and features a wide range of 3D printing technologies and applications. Furthermore, JAPAN PACK is a comprehensive packaging exhibition held in Tokyo every two years, which also includes a section for 3D printing and related technologies. The expo showcases the latest advancements in 3D printing for packaging and product design. Moreover, RAPID + TCT Asia expo is held annually in Shanghai, but attracts a significant number of Japanese exhibitors and visitors. The event focuses on 3D printing and related technologies for industrial applications, such as aerospace, automotive, and medical. In addition, the Design Engineering & Manufacturing Solutions Expo (DMS) is a comprehensive manufacturing and engineering expo held annually in Tokyo that includes a section dedicated to 3D printing and additive manufacturing. The expo showcases the latest advancements in 3D printing technology, materials, and applications. Mitsubishi Chemical announced a new 3D printing project in October 2021 with the goal of developing new materials for the industry. In addition, HP announced a partnership with the Japanese printing company Konica Minolta in February 2021 to develop new industrial-grade 3D printers and materials. Moreover, in August 2021, Japanese researchers announced that they had successfully printed functional heart tissues using a 3D bioprinting technique. The discovery could pave the way for new treatments for heart disease and other diseases. Furthermore, the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, which were postponed to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, featured several 3D printing applications. The Olympic torch, for example, was created using 3D printing technology, as were some of the medals. In addition, in 2020, Divergent 3D announced a partnership with Mitsubishi Motors to develop a new generation of electric vehicles using 3D printing technology. The project's goal is to reduce the environmental impact of automobile manufacturing and make it more sustainable. The highest barrier to implementation of this technology in Japan, according to reports, is its high initial costs. This investment includes spending on employee training, materials, certification, & education in additive manufacturing. Spending on hardware, software, and other components is also included. Setting up a 3D system requires significant capital expenditures and more resources than conventional printing techniques. However, now that the professional Desktop 3D printer is available, the manufacturers are assisting end users in lowering the significant upfront costs. Desktop printers are more convenient and less expensive than a 3D system.
