​The Coming of Age for Additive Manufacturing - 3D Printing
This study is a comprehensive, in-depth analysis of the professional and industrial Additive Manufacturing (AM) systems market, including market size and segmentation, market forecast, industry structure, and supplier market shares and profiles.
A new “philosophy” of manufacturing, wherein material is built up rather than cut away, additive manufacturing has attracted substantial hype because it allows unrestricted geometric freedom. Manufacturers can now actualize designs never before approachable. Systems can fabricate objects using materials ranging from plastics and metals to sand, cheese, and moon dust.

2012 was the breakout year for additive manufacturing, both in terms of industry growth, but also because of the emergence of industry standards. As suppliers continue to push the cutting edge, develop new materials and build processes, and advance machine efficiency, 2012 was only the beginning of the expected development in the market.

With high growth and even more untapped demand, additive manufacturing is certainly an exciting technology to follow.

Strategic Issues
Manufacturers have traditionally used additive manufacturing for prototyping, but many are applying the technology for production parts. As the technology and its applications continue to evolve, this is the critical time period for both suppliers and end users. This study will offer strategies, such as:

• Which industries suppliers should target
• How end users should incorporate additive manufacturing in JIT production strategies
• How niche markets will impact the total market
