Worldwide Additive Manufacturing Markets, Technologies, Applications, Patents, and Industry Players (2014-2023) - ResearchAndMarkets.com

September 12, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 12, 2019--

The “Additive Manufacturing - Machines, Materials, Technologies, Applications, New Developments, Industry Structure and Global Markets” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The rapidly growing selection of materials, new approaches to automation, and increases in speed are allowing for growth in applications for 3D printing across industries, ranging from aerospace and automotive to durable goods, healthcare, dental care and jewellery.

Format & Scope

The market data contained in this report quantify opportunities for AM machines, materials and processes equipment. In addition to product types, this report also covers the merits and future prospects of these businesses, including corporate strategies, information technologies, and the means for providing these highly advanced product and service offerings.

This report also covers in detail the economic and technological issues regarded by many as critical to the industry’s current state of change. It provides a review of the AM machines, materials and processes industry and its structure, and of the many companies involved in providing these products.

The competitive positions of the main players in the market, and the strategic options they face, also are discussed, along with such factors as marketing, distribution and operations.

Report Summary

Rapid Prototyping (RP) remains the dominant application of polymer AM processes and is well established in the market. Many of the aforementioned technologies are limited to RP, as they do not allow for processing of common engineering materials (polymers, metals, ceramics and composites thereof) with sufficient mechanical properties.

Besides RP, AM for rapid tooling also makes up some of the current AM activity involving the fabrication of molds and dies. For manufacturing applications of AM processes, notable areas of success include the production of medical devices such as dental crowns and hearing aids. Rapid tooling also has been applied to the production of consumer products, including high-value lighting goods and electronics.

The aerospace sector also has found a number of applications, often driven by the possibilities of improving buy-to-fly ratios and reducing the weight of components through design optimization. Other areas benefitting from rapid tooling include automotive, jewelry, architecture and defense applications.

AM offers the potential for developing complex, customized products that are prohibitively expensive to produce in current manufacturing settings. AM is poised to bring about a revolution in the way products are designed, manufactured, and distributed to end-users. The technology has gained significant academic as well as industry interest due to its ability to create complex geometries with customizable material properties. AM has also inspired the development of the maker movement by democratizing design and manufacturing.
