Opportunities in Polymer and Plastic 3D Printing - 2017: An Opportunity Analysis And Ten-Year Forecast

Over the last two years, the polymer 3D printing industry has been in a state of tumultuousness marked by dozens of new competitors entering the market, partnerships for development of materials, and development of new print technologies. All of these and more have combined to create a whirlwind market that, in spite of so much activity and investment, has struggled to maintain its growth pace from 2012 through 2014 as customers have backed off purchasing in the traditional segments while adopting a 'wait and see' strategy. The demand for additive manufacturing in general has perhaps never been higher, but challenges associated with such rapid evolution in polymer and plastic 3D printing have suppressed growth in the face of historic interest in 3D printing at a professional level.

As the global chemical and polymer suppliers of the manufacturing world move into position to exert more influence over the increasingly integrated 3D printing industry, market change appears imminent. Meanwhile, the commercialization of disruptive new print technologies such as those from Carbon, HP, Rize, and more all ensure 2017 will be a pivotal year.

Opportunities for Nickel Alloys in Additive Manufacturing - 2017:  An Opportunity Analysis and Ten-Year Forecast

In yet another first, SmarTech Publishing presents the first ever multi-market deep dive research study into additive manufacturing with nickel alloys utilizing powder based AM/3DP and other AM technologies. This study is complimentary to our research portfolio in metal additive manufacturing materials and related applications, and looks into the world of nickel alloys and the current and future potential for short run and serial production utilizing various AM techniques.

Nickel based additive manufacturing is centered around superalloys ranging from Inconel to Hastelloy variants, with potential for a huge amount of material customization to fit a wide range of applications where highly resistant alloys are required. Though the aerospace industry is driving the vast majority of production opportunities in nickel AM, power generation and oil and gas applications also now have parts made of nickel superalloys by laser powder bed fusion systems in full-on production worldwide. This, along with tertiary emerging opportunities in both automotive and healthcare opportunities are combining to make nickel additive manufacturing the second most demanded material for AM processes over the next decade behind the diverse steel material segment.

3D-Printed Composites Materials Markets - 2017:  An Opportunity Analysis and Ten-Year Forecast

SmarTech Publishing is seeing growing interest and development activities around the use of composites – especially carbon- and glass-fiber reinforced thermoplastic materials within the 3D printing/additive manufacturing (3DP/AM) community

We believe that such developments are creating new revenue generation opportunities within 3DP/AM by expanding upon current labor-intensive composite materials manufacturing processes for the production of final parts in the transportation, medical and consumer goods industries.  3D-printed composites also add a new material to the ever-growing number of materials that can be printed by 3D printers.  And acceleration in the development of nanomaterial based composites, leveraging the materials’ advanced electrical, thermal and mechanical properties, is expected to further expand the range of 3D-printed composite applications over the next ten years.

This report determines the revenue potential from 3D-printed composites by examining both actual fabrication and notable R&D currently taking place at an enterprise and academic research level. It provides an analysis of upcoming developments based on how current applications for composites in manufacturing could be affected by the use of AM.
