3D printing or Additive Manufacturing is a transformative technology. It has brought a revolution in every industry it has entered- from manufacturing to retail and health care. 3D printing provides freedom to create and manufacture customized products as there is no additional cost for complexity and uniqueness. It has the ability to mass customize and locally print products as per specification at required point of time in a cost effective way. It also significantly reduces undesired environmental impacts of traditional manufacturing.
The major trends observed in the 3D printing market globally are a focus on rapid prototyping, mergers and acquisitions in the industry and increasing innovative use of 3D printing technology in diverse industries. Over the next five years, industry the demand and revenue stream of the industry are forecasted to continue their upward trajectory as 3D printers explode in popularity and more customers, including an expanding at-home hobbyist market, join the 3D printing revolution. Major companies operating in 3D printing segment like Stratasys Ltd., 3D Systems Corporation and The ExOne Company are expanding their reach in various geographies to get a share of the growing markets.
