Additive Manufacturing for the Drone/UAV Industry: An Opportunity Analysis and Ten-Year Forecast

This report quantifies the projected value of additive manufactured parts and identifies the most commercially important technologies, materials and applications in 3D printing of drone parts for prototyping, production and replacement. The analysis includes ten-year forecasts of the materials, hardware, software and AM services, both in terms of demand and revenues. Granular geographic and part type information completes this first ever accurate study of the potential for AM in the rapidly evolving drone industry, including defense, commercial and consumer applications.

The Drone AM report also provides information on which companies and institutions in the space infrastructure industry are using additive manufacturing today, with relevant case studies. Key firms in the drone AM segment include: DJI, 3DR, Parrot, Hubsan, EHANG, Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin, General Atomics, Boeing, Stratasys, 3D Systems, CRP Group, Oxford Performance Materials (OPM), HP, EOS, Ricoh.

Opportunities for Additive Manufacturing in Aerospace 2017 - Civil Aviation:  An Opportunity Analysis and Ten-Year Forecast

Manufacturing of civil aircraft – that is planes for commercial and general aviation – has already emerged as the first industry sector where 3D printing is an established manufacturing modality. We continue to see important new opportunities emerge in this area in both metal AM and the polymer AM (metal replacement and composite).  This report identifies and quantifies the business potential of these new trends. The report includes:

  • Detailed ten-year forecasts of the revenue generation potential for additive manufacturing in the civil aviation sector.  These forecasts are presented in both volume and value ($ Millions) terms and cover printer shipments and install base, revenues from specialist aerospace service bureaus, aerospace-related AM software, and materials (metals, polymers and composites).
  • A strategic assessment of the leading firms supplying the “additive aerospace” sector.  In this assessment, we also take into consideration the commercial impact of the rapidly growing number of companies that are targeting aerospace firms as potential customers.

Opportunities for Additive Manufacturing in Commercial and General Aviation

This report identifies and quantifies the opportunities for 3D printing (3DP) in the commercial and general aviation industries.  It covers jetliners, helicopters, and smaller civilian aircraft and analyzes 3DP’s influence on aerospace manufacturing--and vice versa. 

SmarTech believes this unique study will be required reading for marketing, business development and production managers in both the aerospace and 3DP sectors:

  • The commercial aerospace industry is on the cusp of a manufacturing revolution utilizing metal and polymer 3DP technologies to produce aircraft engine components and a variety of structural and cabin components.
  • The number of projects in pre-production and flight testing for aircraft engine manufacturing has grown significantly in just twelve months. GE is no longer the only supplier ramping up for 3DP production. Pratt & Whitney, MTU, Airbus, and others are all integrating final parts into aircraft in volumes that range from hundreds, to thousands, and beyond.
  • Commercial aerospace is the single best example of advancing 3DP as a manufacturing technology rather than just a rapid prototyping tool.
