Charlottesville, Virginia:  Recent announcement by BP and GE illustrate that additive manufacturing/3D printing continues to make strong progress in the oil and gas industry. SmarTech Publishing’s report “Additive Manufacturing Opportunities in Oil & Gas Markets 2016: A Ten-Year Forecast,” sets out where the money will be made and lost in this important sector of the additive manufacturing industry, projecting that revenues will reach approximately US $1.4 billion by 2025.

In the latest Opportunities in Polymer and Plastic 3D Printing - 2017: An Opportunity Analysis and Ten-Year Forecast report, SmarTech Publishing focuses on the material category of “advanced thermoplastics” which are primarily those in the polyaryletherketone (PAEK) family, including PEEK and PEKK. This category also includes the polyetherimide family (ULTEM) used today primarily by Stratasys’ closed materials systems. Based on growing use in powder bed fusion processes and a number of newly developed open materials-based extrusion systems, SmarTech Publishing identifies and details the significant business opportunities for PAEK polymers over the next decade, as are expected to account for nearly 19 percent of total polymer 3D print material revenues by 2026, while representing just over 8 percent of total projected print material volume from professional and industrial polymer 3D printers.

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.”
