The future of prototyping and manufacturing is speeding up and 3D printing is in the front seat. By 2020, the global additive manufacturing market is expected to reach $20.5 billion, making this technology one of the most disruptive of our time. Changes aren't decades or even years away — major overhauls are happening right now.
We're highlighting this pervasive topic in medical manufacturing and beyond so you can walk away prepared for the changes ahead. You'll find it all, including design software, hardware, services, post-printing manufacturing solutions, and more.
Why 3D Printing:
- The total aggregated medical 3D printing opportunities are expected to reach $4 billion by 2023, growing from just over $1.5 billion at the end of 2018.
- The global 3D printing/additive manufacturing market is estimated to reach $23 billion in 2022 with a five-year CAGR of 18.4%.
- 3D printing/additive manufacturing technology is mainly used to accelerate product development, offer customized products, and to increase production flexibility.
