DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 13, 2018--The "Additive Manufacturing Market - Forecasts from 2018 to 2023" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Additive manufacturing market was valued at US$3.520 billion in 2017 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 14.58% over the forecast period to reach US$7.964 billion by 2023.

Additive manufacturing is a process to create end-use parts automatically. Unlike conventional manufacturing process which involves cutting, stamping, and moulding among others, additive manufacturing involves joining of different sub-parts to build the final product. The use of additive manufacturing has been growing across different industries substantially over the past few years owing to the rising awareness about the technology to reduce manufacturing lead times.

Rising investments in research and development activities has aided in higher number of collaborations between universities and manufacturers' R&D centers, and in turn contributing to the additive manufacturing market growth. However, factors such as lack of industry-specific testing procedures and high production cost restrains the adoption of these solutions to an extent.

Geographically, APAC will witness a significant CAGR during the forecast period owing to the growing automotive and healthcare industry in the region.

Major industry players profiled as part of the report are General Electric, DSM, EOS, ExOne, and Optomec among others.
