These figures aren't really surprising if you look at how affordable 3D printers are becoming with every passing year. They may have started off as a luxury limited to research or industrial worlds, but 3D printers are far more accessible and affordable now.
3D printers are almost becoming mainstream thanks to several Chinese companies competing against each other and offering these products at affordable prices.

Whether it's for a school project or you want to get a new hobby, a small and affordable 3D printer has become yet another product on our growing list of must-haves.
