SmarTech Publishing is seeing continuing interest and development activities around 3D printed composites, reinforced thermoplastic materials – primarily carbon fiber and glass fiber – in major 3D printing technologies. Since our previously issued 2016 report was published, several changes have occurred which are further consolidating the 3D printed composites segment.

This report analyzes these trends providing a complete, highly accurate and current panoramic of the 3D printed composites market today. The primary objective of this report is to highlight the most relevant business opportunities that lie ahead for companies that are invested in either the composite material or additive manufacturing markets, as well as provide a detailed map of the key technologies and materials – as well as their business potential – to all major potential composite AM adopters in the primary adoption segments, including key industries such as aerospace, automotive, medical, energy, marine and consumer goods sectors.

In order to do this to the highest accuracy, SmarTech has conducted interviews and market research to analyze the major technologies able to process composites today and their possible evolutions in terms of both fiber reinforcement materials (primarily carbon and glass fiber) and support (or matrix) materials (primarily thermopolymers in pellet, filament or powder form).

As the AM industry as a whole, and the 3D printed composites segment in particular, moves toward final part production, SmarTech leveraged its extensive market-leading hardware and material database to provide the first ever assessment of the revenue opportunity that is expected to emerge from prototype, tools and end-use part production of additively manufactured composite parts. These elements will enable readers to gain the most up to date and clear understanding of the composite AM industry today.
