3D printing – One technology, uncountable opportunities.
According to the Additive Manufacturing Trend Report 2021 published by 3D Hubs, mechanical engineering companies purchased or produced 65 per cent more 3D-printed parts in 2020 compared to 2019. This boosted the estimated value of the 3D printing market to $12.6 billion in 2020 and there is no end to this growth in sight for the next five years according to the researchers. In 2026, the 3D printing market is estimated to reach a value of $37.2 billion. What is the reason for this development?
