3D printing market worth $20bn by 2025, report predicts

The 3D printing market surpassed $1bn in revenues during 2012, and growth is expected to continue throughout all target sectors to reach $20bn by 2025. Printer manufacturers are reporting a surge in sales, as awareness of the technology grows. This and much more is discussed and analysed in the IDTechEx report ‘3D Printing 2015-2025: Technologies, Markets, Players’.

Topological optimisation benefits of additive manufacturing

Topological optimisation benefits of additive manufacturing
From the Greek 'topo' meaning 'place' and 'ology' meaning 'study', topological optimisation is the study of mathematically optimising material layout. When approaching a component part in this way, the end goal is to remove superfluous material in areas of low stress whilst maintaining structural integrity of the whole; the lighter and stronger the better.

3D printing materials market expected to reach $8bn by 2025

According to a report published by IDTechEx, the 3D printing materials market is expected to increase from $800m in 2013 to $8bn by 2025. 3D printing is already common in aerospace, orthopaedic, jewellery and dental sectors, and is becoming more common in education, military, architecture, medical research and automotive sectors. This is because 3D printing is no longer used just for one-off pieces and prototypes, but for final part production of items with reduced and simplified assembly, quicker design iterations, greater design freedom, mass customisation and minimal material wastage. The report, titled ‘3D Printing Materials 2015-2025, Status, Opportunities, Market Forecasts’, discusses 3D printing in these sectors.
