Manager's Guide to Additive Manufacturing in the Oil and Gas Sector
After a few years of evaluating and studying additive manufacturing applications, the oil and gas industry is now readying for full industrialization and implementation. After a challenging period due to dropping prices, the oil and gas sector is now ready to invest again. Additive manufacturing can provide some of the best value propositions for part production in the upstream, midstream, and downstream segments, as well as energy generation.
Due to its great engineering challenges, its massive global scale, and part size requirements, the oil and gas industry is slated to become the next great additive manufacturing adoption segment over the next decade. SmarTech has identified the parts and services suppliers of the oil and gas industry as the primary customers investigating this market and subsequently developed this Manager’s Guide to help facilitate the journey.

Learning from experiences in rapid prototyping and tooling within other industries, such as the aerospace, automotive, and medical sectors, many oil and gas operators and suppliers are now looking to use additive manufacturing in order to gain a key competitive edge in the production of advanced and complex final parts. The next key phase is going to be the development of clear guidelines and standards – as well as identifying the ideal technologies and materials – for the full industrialization of additive manufacturing into the oil and gas manufacturing workflow.
This Manager's Guide Will Include:
This report is directed toward the end user market, including the companies who are active users of additive manufacturing or considering its adoption. While suppliers of additive manufacturing may find this report useful, this study differs from our related market report, The Market for Additive Manufacturing in the Oil and Gas Sector 2018-2029 which provides broader analysis and forecasting of the addressable market for the supply chain.
