3D Printing Report, Digital Disruption Report

3D Printing - Thematic Research

Disruptive impact lies ahead for many key industries due to this exceptional technology - GlobalData's report denotes that for some of these industries this could be as little as 2 years away.

3D printing is a revolutionary technology which offers exciting possibilities for the future of manufacturing. While the technology is by no means a replacement for volume manufacture, it is incredibly useful for prototyping in numerous industries where the cost of development can be significantly lower as a result.

  • 3D Printing
  • Medical development is underway already, and according to GlobalData, 3D printing will become a standard part of the healthcare portfolio. 3D printed organs made from a patient’s own cells would prevent the current challenges of rejection.
  • In construction, complex moulded components can be produced for less time and less money than ever before. Having already proved its worth for improving efficiency within the sector, the technology is fast becoming a very attractive option to many construction firms.
  • Already taking hold of the automotive industry, 3D printing can accelerate the prototyping process of car parts and components. In addition to that, cars themselves can now be printed.

Explore the technology, the key industries impacted by it and gain insight on the companies already adopting it 3D Printing

3D printing technology can easily produce complex shapes and structures which could not so efficiently be produced using traditional machining methods could revolutionise many industries. Especially considering there are eight leading additive manufacturing technologies each using different build materials.

Many key industries are already realising the potential of this technology that promises to streamline processes and significantly reduce costs. So much so that complete industry disruption is on the horizon for most, and for some, this disruptive impact is already happening and accelerating fast.

Find out how 3D printing is revolutionizing industry processes and ensure you stay ahead of competitors with GlobalData’s latest report on 3D printing technology.
