Aluminum additive manufacturing has grown by leaps and bounds over the last several years, moving from one of the more difficult to process metals with typical laser powder bed fusion equipment to one of the most widely demanded materials in the industry. To date, almost all commercial activity has been centralized to powder bed fusion of aluminum casting alloys, but since 2017 real efforts to develop new printable alloys and increase the process stability of aluminum in laser-based AM equipment has begun to expand the scope of aluminum printing. Today, aluminum has become a material of special focus by various stakeholders in the industry, from suppliers of aluminum goods and powders, to AM print technology developers, to metal AM service providers. As the industry now moves to more widespread use of both wrought alloy formulations and specialty aluminum alloys developed specifically for AM processing, the aluminum segment is primed for fast growth along with the rest of the metal AM industry. This report follows SmarTech’s 2018 study of the aluminum AM market with updated expectations and forecasts in a new, highly accessible format.
