3D Printed Polymers: A Patent Landscape Analysis - 2016

Polymer-based 3D printing has been mainstay of 3D printing/additive manufacturing since its inception.  It still represents the overwhelming majority of activity for low-cost 3D printers and continues to grow rapidly.  In addition, 3D printing has expanded to cover an extraordinarily wide variety of polymers.

SmarTech Publishing has already published widely on the growing market opportunities available in 3D printing with polymers.  We have, for example, published the standard market analysis and forecasting report on polymer-based 3DP/AM, which is widely read by leading materials suppliers and printer makers throughout the industry.

Building on this extensive knowledge and understanding of this area we are now offering a report on the patent landscape presented by 3D-printed polymers.  SmarTech Publishing believes that this is a unique report and will be essential reading by firms in the 3DP/AM sector as well as venture capitalists and other active investors in this space.  This report provides guidance on the current sources of IP in the 3D-printed polymers space, where patents are barriers to entry and where there are patent gaps.


This report has two components (1) An extensive patent database covering all aspects of additive manufacturing with polymers and (2) A 50-page granular analysis, commentary and guidance on the 3D printed patent environment by SmarTech Publishing’s in-house IP attorney.

3D-Printed Metals:  A Patent Landscape Analysis - 2016

Metals-based 3D printing is one of the fastest growing sectors of the 3D printing business.  SmarTech has already published widely on the growing market opportunities available in this space.  Building on our extensive knowledge and understanding of this area we are now offering a report on the patent landscape presented by 3D-printed metals. 

Coverage
This report is based on an extensive search of relevant patents and patent applications published after December 1, 1995 from the US and WO patent databases to identify a broad, yet relevant patent landscape related to metal powder materials used for 3D printing.  The report presents the quantitative patent landscape, which is essential to identifying the players, technologies, patent filing velocity, geographic distribution, and technology classifications in in the 3DP metals area.
