The report breaks down the ceramics 3D printing opportunity across numerous user industries as well as different AM technologies, materials and material supports, part types and geographical market regions.

Ceramics Additive Manufacturing

The report analyzes pros, cons and generated revenues of the dominant AM technologies for processing ceramics, both technical (advanced) and traditional /(clay-like). These include material extrusion, photopolymerization and binder jetting 3D printing technologies. Currently available high-end industrial system data are complemented by a deep analysis of new and emerging technologies such as low-cost hardware systems and new jetting processes. All analyses are supported  with hardware and material market shipments, sales, installations, and future forecasts through 2028 to provide a fully comprehensive insight into the future of ceramic 3D printing.

In 2018, the ceramics additive manufacturing market is focusing on AM part production, benefiting from the experience acquired by adopters and system OEM’s who are working with metal and polymer technologies. Ceramics AM, however, presents a distinct set of advantaged and challenges which are explored in detail in this report, along with the latest successful use cases. SmarTech Publishing believes that a proper understanding of the opportunity in ceramics 3D printing technology worldwide requires both a deep understanding of the individual nature of each print technology, but also an understanding of the interrelationship between these technologies and a specific family of ceramic materials, to fully understand how they can be integrated within current industrial manufacturing options.

Companies developing materials and providing ceramics additive manufacturing services or specific applications have come to understand that additive manufacturing’s extreme geometric capabilities are proving to ideal for production of complex ceramic parts in all major ceramic adoption segments. These include the aerospace, automotive, marine, energy, electronics, medical, dental and biomedical segments, which are already among the first adopters of AM technologies. In this report SmarTech will provide updated information on all major players and movers in the ceramic AM market, including Lithoz, 3D Ceram Sinto, Admatec, Prodways, Tethon 3D, 3D Systems, Kwambio, voxeljet, ExOne, HP, Johnson Matthey, Nanoe, XJet and several more.
