3D printing in India is in a very nascent stage when compared to various developed economies across Europe, America and Asia, primarily because of the high pricing and lack of ecosystem. But the future holds high promises as many startups are emerging with interesting innovations and diverse applications. While the 3D printing market is projected to cross $79 million by 2021, the investors are exploring options for early-stage investments. But back in 2014, the landscape was deserted when Gaurav Loyalka (Co-founder, Novabeans) was looking to bring 3D printing technologies to revolutionise small and medium scale industries. The team of IT professionals stood their ground and launched Novabeans Prototyping Labs LLP in May 2015 from Gurgaon, gradually creating awareness about 3D application and outclassing Chinese competition.
