Market for Additive Manufacturing Grows Despite Macroeconomic Headwinds

Additive Manufacturing (AM), often referred to as 3D printing, is defined as a manufacturing process that creates a three-dimensional object by adding layer upon layer of material. This contrasts with traditional subtractive manufacturing. ARC’s new market research report on additive manufacturing shows that the AM ecosystem has reached a pivotal point of opportunity with the crisscrossing of macroeconomic headwinds and advancement of technologies. Users and solution providers in this space are cognizant of the benefits of additive manufacturing on the digital transformation journey. Intersection of 3D printer innovation, software advances, and material creation combined with the supply chain shortages of the pandemic are shining new light on industrialized additive manufacturing. As part of a broader digital transformation strategy, additive manufacturing is part of the solution for disrupted supply chains, operational efficiencies, and new product development.

"Additive manufacturing continues to evolve from prototyping or proof-of-concept to serialized parts production. 2021 demonstrated this continued shift in mindset from utilizing additive manufacturing as an R&D system to parts production platform, with companies demonstrating the ability to manufacture through numerous use cases across diverse industries. Sustainability has become an increasingly important business concern to combat the ongoing climate crisis. Additive manufacturing gives buyers flexible manufacturing options and the ability to reduce complexity by making more efficient parts, which shortens supply chains and allows for reduced energy and material costs versus traditional manufacturing methods," according to Daniel Keyser, Analyst and key author of ARC's Additive Manufacturing Systems Market Research Report.
