New 3D Printed Metals Patent Analysis Report from SmarTech

Please note that this report is expected to be released in Mid August 2018

Metals-based 3D printing is one of the fastest growing sectors of the 3D printing industry.  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 an updated and revamped report on the patent landscape for 3D-printed metals. This report will be one of a series of reports on the 3D printing patent landscape.

Coverage
The 2018 report is based on an extensive search of relevant U.S. and foreign patents issued over a 20-year rolling period and patent applications published through June 2018 related to metals used for 3D printing and processes for making such metals.  This report – which is the only one of its kind — has two components: (1) a 3D printing metals patent database and (2) a visually illustrative presentation of the data in charts and graphs, accompanied by granular analysis and guidance by SmarTech’s in-house IP analyst.
