While it’s been quite exciting to hear of 3D printers for sale, and front and center in retail storefronts around the world, we know that a large number of discerning shoppers do their purchasing online these days, able to look forward to taking their time, looking for the best prices, and ultimately, bringing home exactly what they wanted in terms of hardware performance, speed, and value.
Looking at results from the Top 20 Best Selling 3D Printers from BestBuy.com, this quarter we see quite the jump for the ROBO 3D – R1 Plus + 3D printer (white), shooting straight up to the first spot, pushing the Dremel Idea Builder (silver/blue) down to #2. While the da Vinci 1.0 was pushed down two notches it now sits just below the da Vinci Junior 1.0 (Tangerine) which rose all the way up from #8, as part of what seems to be a complete XYZprinting takeover, with the da Vinci 1.0 Pro (Red/Black) hitting the #6 mark this quarter. All of these printers are under the $1,000 mark with the da Vinci printers well below that.
And if you’re still wondering which manufacturer is on top in the ‘Top Ten Best Seller Appearance Share by Manufacturer’ for BestBuy.com, look no further than XYZprinting, who seems to just keep gaining momentum industry wide, with no signs of slowing down in terms of production and new releases. They rose from 33.85% last quarter to 36.8%.
Also of note, 3D Systems fell significantly, with their share last quarter at 21.32%, and now at 12.61%. Both Dremel and ROBO 3D fell slightly, as did HP. MakerBot also entered the running in the top five this quarter, rising from 6.04% to 9.32%. For Best Selling Trends, XYZprinting is still running away with market share.
The Top 20 Best Selling 3D Printers from Amazon tell a different story this quarter. The top five ‘printers’ are no longer dominated by 3D printing pens! While last month there were five, yes five, 3D printing pens in the running, this month we see the FlashForge Creator Pro in the top spot, followed by the ROBO 3D R1 Plus. XYZprinting is to be found front and center, again, at #3 and #5 with the da Vinci Junior 1.0 and the da Vinci Pro 1.0, respectively. Lodged neatly in the #4 spot is the Prusa i3 DIY CNC Tridimensional.
In the ‘Top Ten Best Seller Appearance Share by Manufacturer’ for Amazon.com, we see XYZprinting actually show a dip at 12.4% this quarter, down from 14.37%. Haoyu Electronic Technology makes a debut at 10%, with FlashForge showing a dip as well at 9.78% from 11.22%. ROBO 3D is in the top five now at 9.12% and HIC Technology brings up the fifth spot with 8.79%. Looking at the ‘Weekly Top Ten Bestseller Appearance by Manufacturer,’ we see XYZprinting yet again soaring above everyone else.
