3D Printers and 3D Printing
The additive manufacturing (AM) industry is experiencing a rapid market expansion. The global market value was estimated at around USD 14 billion in 2021 and is expected to exceed USD 70 billion by 2030. Not only is demand for this innovative manufacturing type rapidly growing – the technologies that fuel 3D printing are also developing at a dizzying pace. As applications for 3D-printing services diversify, new companies and service providers are popping up all over the map. This makes additive manufacturing one of the fastest-growing tech industries on the planet.
The growing demand is mostly arising from the extensive adoption of 3D-printing applications for prototyping, designing, and tooling, across a wide range of vertical markets. Most harnessing these new technologies are automotive, aerospace and defense, healthcare, consumer electronics, and many other industries. Only a few years ago, 3D-printing applications were mostly reserved for industrial-scale operations. With the advent of affordable consumer-grade devices, the AM industry is becoming widely available to companies of all sizes as well as private users.
To keep up with the growing diversity of new applications and production strategies, flexible production and enterprise planning systems are a must.
