Freelancer.com has published its quarterly analysis on outsourced jobs on its site in Q1 2014, and the latest data reveals a huge rise in trending tech, with particular demand for 3D printing.

In Q1 2014, over 270,000 jobs were analysed to provide a snapshot of the global booming industries.

According to the site, 3D printing, concept design and architectural work drive a large increase 3D jobs. Q1 2014 saw a dramatic leap in all things three-dimensional.

Facebook purchased the virtual reality headset for $2 billion at the end of March. 3D Imagery allows businesses to bring their products and services to life while connecting with their users in a new and exciting way.

In addition, the global fascination is being spurred on by notable advances in 3D Printing - with technological advances fuelling rapid cost-reductions, tech retailers are salivating at the thought of affordable 3D printers under Christmas trees when the 2014 Holiday season arrives, the Freelancer says.

It will make 3D printing more accessible and affordable for individuals and small businesses. Likewise, Graphic Design jobs were up (to 51,389 jobs), Illustration jobs were up up 32.7% (to 3,308 jobs), and Animation jobs up 21.3% (to 2,755 jobs).
