Nickel alloys are some of the most widely used materials for applications with an extreme operating environment, making them commonly found in industries and applications in which metal additive manufacturing techniques are already being explored and applied. This is a net advantage for the development of the nickel-AM market, because the historical use of metal AM techniques like laser powder bed fusion have been, for the most part, relegated to high performance, high value components due to the cost structure of the technologies. Unsurprisingly, this has made additively manufactured nickel alloys a staple in the aerospace industry, where they are used for a multitude of potential use cases related to high temperature, corrosive environments in aircraft engines.

The early research and developments for nickel superalloys for aerospace engine components was also successfully ported to other industries where similar turbomachinery applications require performance similar to jet engines, especially in power generation for oil and gas and general energy markets, making materials like Hastelloy some of the most widely printed materials today.
