A 3D-printed battery is one that is made with metallic printed structures for applications such as supercapacitors and microfluidic devices. Through the use of 3D printing, there has been progress in the design and manufacture of complex structures over the years. 3D printing can be a useful platform for the production of low-cost 3D components for a wide range of applications. 3D printing technology has found widespread application in the manufacture of electrodes for a variety of energy storage systems, including Li-ion batteries. Because of its capacity to manufacture low-cost, 3D-printed platforms, 3D printing technology provides a unique platform for rapid prototyping of a wide range of applications. A graphene-based polylactic acid (graphene/PLA) filament, for example, has been 3D-printed to construct a wide range of 3D disk electrode (3DE) topologies using the standard RepRap FDM (fused deposition molding) 3D printer, requiring no extra modification/ex-situ curing procedure.
High-tech advances in 3D printing are altering the world, and the technology is rapidly advancing, soon becoming the foundation of next-generation 3D-printed energy systems, in which batteries and supercapacitors may be printed in nearly any shape.

A key market driver for 3D-printed batteries is the growing need for lightweight, compact, and portable batteries. This demand comes from a variety of sectors and applications that require energy storage systems with optimised weight and size. Lightweight and compact batteries are required for portable electronics, electric vehicles, drones, wearable gadgets, consumer electronics, and space-constrained applications. 3D printed batteries enable the manufacture of batteries with optimised energy density and reduced weight. These batteries meet the increasing demand for portable electronics, electric vehicles (EVs), drones, robots, wearable devices, consumer electronics, and space-constrained applications. As the demand for efficient energy storage solutions grows, the market for 3DP batteries is expected to grow. The customization options provided by 3D printing technology enable the creation of batteries that are optimised for weight, size, and meeting the specific needs of various applications. The market for 3DP batteries is projected to grow as demand for smaller, lighter, and more efficient energy storage options grows.
3D Printed Batteries Market: Restraints
High equipment prices, a lack of international organisations to regulate producers, and sensitivity to high temperatures (which produces sputtering, electrodeposition, chemical vapour deposition, and atomic layer deposition) are impeding the expansion of the 3D printed battery market.

3D Printed Batteries Market Segment Analysis
- by Architectural Process (Graphene-Based PLA Filaments, Graphene-Based Li-ion Anodes, Platinum-Based Electrodes, Others). Graphene-based PLA filaments dominate the market since they are widely used in 3D printing. They are nanocomposite materials that can be conductive and much more durable than non-specialized filaments when infused with graphene.
- by End-User (Energy Storage Devices, Electronics, Others). Energy storage devices dominate the market since energy is mostly stored in the form of batteries and capacitors, which may be used in a variety of applications such as mobile phones, laptop computers, and electric vehicles. Furthermore, storing energy in devices such as batteries has a positive impact on the environment by reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
- by Application (Wearables, Smartphones, Others). In 2022, the 'Wearables' sector held the largest share of the market due to the growing use in smartwatches and wearable power banks for phones followed by smartphones.
