3D printing also known as additive manufacturing provides many advantages such as the ability to reduce inventory and material costs. And customization items for individual consumers.
The ability to localize production is efficient such as hearing aids, ceramic teeth, auto parts and aircraft components also reducing inventory transportation costs for most businesses.
Although, the consumer grade 3D printing market is limited. We find the commercial 3D additive manufacturing sector using durable materials ceramics, metal and industrial polymers are robust economic opportunities.
We estimate worldwide total revenue of $12 Billion by 2018 with 25% annual growth rate on-average for 3D print manufacturing and additive printing market. Particularly, the medical and education applications will produce significant economic growth and healthy returns-on-investment says James Dean @ SocialCommercApps.com.
