We were not able to calculate the market size of the XHD printing market in the apparel industry as the XHD printing signifies a small part of the 3D printing industry which is executed in the accessories and apparel industry using specific XHD printers. In order to understand the XHD printing market size and attempt to answer the question of the market size for this specific branch of the 3D printing industry, we used three different search methodologies.
First, we looked into the market reports on the subject of 3D printing, specifically looking for those that segmented the 3D printing market by application and industry. However, industry market reports make a general observation per industries which are the most lucrative (electronic and consumer products, medical, education, automotive, industrial, and aerospace industry), and most common application types (prototyping, functional part manufacturing, tooling). We were unable to find a report that would subsegment the industry into such detail to include the apparel industry and/or the technique of XHD printing. The most apparent reason for this is the fact that market reports focus on the industries and applications which account for the largest share of the total market.
Secondly, we looked into academic research in order to understand whether there is any scientific data regarding XHD printing. There are only eleven academic articles available on the web globally regarding XHD printing in general, with most focusing on different methods of XHD printing which have been proven to be most successful. Finally, we looked into the apparel industry publications such as Business of Fashion, Women's Wear Daily, Fashion Management, and Apparel News to attempt to find any industry mentions of data regarding XHD printing as those publications would be focused on apparel industry in general. However, we were unable to find mentions of XHD printing as it is a specific B2B term on the crossover border between the technology and fashion industry that hasn't been adopted by the industry publications for any market research as of yet.
