2019 Additive Manufacturing Market Outlook and Summary of Opportunities
Additive manufacturing in 2018 continued to become a centerpiece for digital transformation strategies from leading innovators across industries worldwide. But unlike years past where the discussions in the industry were on how to achieve long term goals, in 2018 a number of significant engagements and strides were achieved or revealed. Auto manufacturers reported success in integrating multiple AM technologies in supporting “spare parts on demand” initiatives. Serious production volumes in consumer goods began to be produced using AM. GE Aviation announced it had additively manufactured 30,000 of its famous fuel nozzles. BMW is utilizing polymer and metal AM for production automotive parts in high level vehicles. In short, the industry has begun to make strides on delivering on the hype of the last five years.
