There is strong evidence that this past year marks the year that the 3D printing industry has taken off. The revolution is still in its infancy; with today’s market value representing only about 0.04% of the $13 trillion global manufacturing added value in 2015. Among the fastest growing manufacturing technologies, 3D printing is especially driven by four large industrial markets – aerospace, automotive, medical and product prototyping. These markets were early adopters of 3D printing and today account for more than 50% of 3D printing industry value. Industrial markets are the most attractive, using large-scale, high-priced printing equipment and consuming the majority of higher-performance raw materials.
