3D Printing Composites: A Multi-Billion Dollar Industry Ready to Emerge

3D printing of composite materials is reaching a commercial tipping point; IDTechEx forecast that the market will rapidly rise to reach $2bn by 2031.
3D printing of polymer materials can have mechanical limitations that benefit from fiber reinforcement (or other functionalities), and composite manufacturing is known to be costly, and challenging this can benefit from the moldless, rapid prototyping and automated approach that additive manufacturing enables.
There is a huge amount of activity in this field, with new product launches, patent challenges, technology developments, funding, and partnerships. IDTechEx anticipate large changes over the next 5-years as the installed base and applications grow but with an inevitable consolidation in the number of manufacturers.
In this webinar, IDTechEx will give a detailed overview of the market including:
  • Technical benchmarking studies
  • Market outlook
  • Key news, partnerships, and developments
  • Applications and case studies
  • Challenges & industry pain points
