Additive manufacturing (AM) has the potential to have a profound impact on the general industry and tooling sector, yet OEMs in the market are only now beginning to fully grasp the potential. This is the first report to fully characterize the market for AM in the general industry and tooling sector, quantifying the revenue opportunities and levels of AM adoption in the sector using AM hardware, materials, and services through 2029.

Based on interviews, secondary sources, a large database of industry-specific information, and a deep understanding of available AM technologies, materials and applications, SmarTech provides detailed sub-segment analysis of the current state of AM in one of the broadest manufacturing sectors, while also providing future projections for the industry as a whole. This includes the dynamics of industry-specific trends, such as those related to cutting tools, metallurgy equipment and heavy machinery.

We begin with an analysis of AM hardware adoption patterns and trajectories for the industry, examining polymer and metal systems, including the sub-segments related to key technologies within those categories, such as polymer powder bed fusion and bound metal deposition AM processes. We then track the state of AM materials, including those metals that represent the largest revenue opportunity for the sector. The report concludes with an analysis of AM services and profiles of and key stakeholders. Companies mentioned include: Carbon, EOS, HP, Xaar, Caterpillar, Volvo Construction Equipment, GE Additive, Siemens, Sandvik, Desktop Metal, Markforged, Parmatech, Kennametal, Phoenix Contact, Mapal, Guhring UK, GKN Additive, Kueppers Solutions, CNH Industrial, Cummins Inc., Wabtec, Emerson Electric, Xylem, Additive Industries, SMS Group

For each AM segment (hardware, materials, and services), ten-year forecasts are provided that further segment the market based on hardware technologies, material types and service types.  Both revenue ($ Millions) and volume (units or kilograms/tons shipped) are considered in the forecasts.
