IDTechEx Research offers insights into 3D Printing industry innovation
The sheer volume of new 3D printing announcements gives the impression that the technology is evolving on a weekly, if not daily basis. Certainly if 2018 set the bar, 2019 has not disappointed to date, with the number of new printer processes commercialized indicating that 3D printing is continuing to gain momentum. Forthcoming reports from IDTechEx Research help to navigate this rapidly moving domain, with three new reports covering the key areas of technological innovation.
3D printing materials market to be worth $16B in 2028
Following commercialisation in the 1990s, today 3D printing has established itself as an attractive manufacturing solution for prototyping and beyond. Materials suppliers are poised to capitalise on this unmet demand, with the 3D printing materials market to be worth $16B in 2028.
BMW Group plans additive manufacturing campus
The BMW Group is to invest more than €10 million in a new Additive Manufacturing Campus. Located in Oberschleissheim, just north of Munich, the facility will allow the company to continue developing its expertise in this field of work.
The 3D printing market will be worth $22B in 2028
From its humble beginnings in the late 1980s, through to the global force that it is today, the capabilities of 3D printing technology have expanded dramatically, to establish itself as an attractive manufacturing solution for prototyping and production.
Based on the success of prolific startups Desktop Metal and Markforged, CoLiDo is seeking a slice of the metal additive manufacturing market, with good reason, it is the fastest growing segment of the entire 3D printing industry.
