From fused filament fabrication to digital light processing, selective laser melting to binder jetting, material jetting to sheet lamination - the 3D printing world is bursting at the seams with different printing technologies. Despite the first 3D printing technology being commercialized over 30 years, new printing technologies continue to be invented, patented, and commercialized each year. With the continued expansion of 3D printing technologies, the industry gains more opportunity to access new applications, end-users, and industries.
With continued technological development, it becomes essential to understand the status of technologies in 3D printing to further analyse the additive manufacturing market as a whole. These technologies give insight into the near future of 3D printing, whether it be the entrance of many new hardware players, consolidation of the current market players under industry giants, or saturation of the 3D printing hardware market.
In this webinar, Sona Dadhania, Technology Analyst at IDTechEx, will answer the following questions:
- What are the major printing technologies driving the 3D printing hardware market's growth?
- What are new emerging technologies to keep an eye on?
- Is the hardware market at a point of consolidation or expansion?
