Charlottesville, Virginia:  Additive Manufacturing Research (AMR) provides monthly industry analysis on three critical areas of the additive manufacturing/3D printing business.  Each month AMR publishes three bulletins for its clients: one each on 3D-printable polymers, 3D-printable metals and 3D printing in medicine and dentistry. For more details on AMR’s publications and other activities, see www.additivemanufacturingresearch.com.

3D-Printable Polymers:  An Increasingly Challenged Market

AMR’s most recent polymer bulletin establishes expectations for market growth of professional non-metal additive manufacturing. As AMR sees it, this segment of the 3DP/AM market has had more challenges over the past two years than in its previous history. In this sector, AMR is seeing, not just new competition, but also the development of entirely new print processes. 

The new AMR bulletin says that, as a result, it is becoming more difficult for companies to develop and execute on AM/3DP strategies involving polymers.  According to Scott Dunham, Lead Analyst with AMR, “in some ways, there are almost too many options to explore as many manufacturers are deciding how they can expand on their rapid prototyping efforts into more strategic manufacturing applications using polymer printing.”

As we enter a new year, SmarTech Publishing (www.smartechpublishing)  has just released its top three predictions for additive manufacturing in 2017.  SmarTech Publishing is the leading industry analyst in the AM/3DP space and produces around 20 reports a year pinpointing the major opportunities in this sector, as well as carrying out demanding consulting and forecasting assignments for leading equipment OEMs, materials firms and investors.

The Way We Were: 2016 in Retrospective

SmarTech Publishing reports that 2016 saw significant growth in adoption of AM/3DP technology by major end users and is now widely accepted as a market ripe with opportunities for development of end-to-end manufacturing, healthcare, and product development solutions.

Nonetheless, SmarTech Publishing also believes that the sheer scope of 3D printing today is creating challenges in adoption for the short term. With a huge field of processing technologies and competitors in the hardware space all chasing diverse goals with new print techniques, refined processes, and application development, investment in 3D printing as a business model and production technique is more daunting than ever.  Both end users and investors do not want to be left with an obsolete investment, and in some cases they are withholding or delaying adoption plans until the field is more clear.  The AM/3DP scene has been further complicated by undigested acquisitions over the past several years.

Thus, 2017, as SmarTech Publishing sees things, is likely to become a year of unprecedented importance in the industry, characterized in SmarTech Publishing's opinion by the following trends or activities.

Charlottesville, Virginia:   Two major metals suppliers – ATI Metals and Arconic – have recently announced their intent to increase their capacity and focus on nickel based additive manufacturing. Meanwhile the market for nickel-based powders used in AM processes will grow from an estimated $28 million worldwide in 2015 to over $520M by 2026, according to a new report from SmarTech Publishing – the leading provider of market intelligence and forecasts for the additive manufacturing/3D printing sector.

This new 85-page report, “Opportunities for Nickel Alloys in Additive Manufacturing – 2017:  An Opportunity Analysis and Ten-Year Forecast.” is based on SmarTech Publishing’s ongoing coverage of the metal additive manufacturing materials sector. (SmarTech Publishing has also produced in-depth market studies covering 3D printed titanium and precious metals.)

Charlottesville, Virginia:  The recent announcement that GE is acquiring a controlling stake in Arcam will have a profound impact on the additively manufactured (AM) titanium sector, SmarTech Publishing believes.  Arcam owns Advanced Powders & Coatings (AP&C), which supplies over one third of the total supply of titanium powder for the AM industry today.

As a result of this development and other important trends, we believe it is an excellent time to reassess the market opportunities for 3D printed titanium.  With this in mind, SmarTech Publishing has just published, Titanium Opportunities in Additive Manufacturing – 2017.  According to this new 100-page report, revenues from Titanium-based AM power will reach $518 million in 2022 growing to $1,077 million by 2026. SmarTech Publishing is the leading industry analyst firm in the 3D printing (3DP)/additive manufacturing (AM) industry.
