Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter

3D printing is a form of additive manufacturing, which involves taking a raw material and melting it into microscopic layers until it creates a three-dimensional (3D) object. It differs from subtractive manufacturing, which removes material from an object to achieve a desired shape. While the 3D printing industry is nearly three decades old, operators in the 3D Printing and Rapid Prototyping services industry have witnessed a surge in demand for 3D printed products over the past few years. The industry has been driven by rapid technological developments, falling costs and new applications for 3D printing technology.

Despite the recession, the industry has continued to perform strongly over the five years to 2015... purchase to read more

What is the 3D Printing & Rapid Prototyping Services Industry?

Companies in this industry offer 3D printing and rapid prototyping, which is the automatic construction of physical objects using additive manufacturing technology. The competing technologies in the marketplace are differentiated by the way layers are built to create parts. Some melt or soften material to produce layers, while others lay liquid material thermosets that are cured. In the case of lamination systems, thin layers are cut to shape and then joined together.
