Our analysts are experienced in understanding how high-technology industries – and the 3D Printing/additive manufacturing business in particular – operate with regard to marketing, business development, product design and finance. Also, they were well connected in the 3D Printing/additive community long before they came to work for SmarTech. 

In addition to authoring the most insightful market studies available, our analysts have spoken at many prestigious industry conferences such as RAPID, Additive Manufacturing Europe, Additive Aerospace and Additive Disruption.

We are the leading provider of market research and industry analysis in the 3D printing/additive manufacturing sector. And we have published reports on all the most important revenue opportunities in the 3D printing sector.


We bring to our consulting assignments a forecasting methodology that has been tried and tested in several high-technology industries over the past 35 years.

 We also are unique in having in-house models of the entire additive manufacturing sector with numerous breakouts and projections and are able to customize these models to the needs of our clients.


SmarTech is well embedded within the 3D Printing community and has numerous insider contacts on which it draws in order to better understand the dynamics of this rapidly evolving business.

Our contacts include business development executives, marketing and product managers, scientists and executives and include many “C” level executives in the additive manufacturing industry.
