According to 'Additive Manufacturing with Metal Powders 2016' study, the market for additive manufacturing (AM) of metal powders will generate revenues of around $1.2 Billion in 2021 going on to reach $2.4 Billion in 2025.
Additive Manufacturing with Metal Powders 2016: An Opportunity Analysis and Ten-Year Forecast, provides a full-scale analysis of:
Opportunities for metal powder suppliers
The evolution of metal powder supply chains to meet the needs of evolving additive manufacturing markets
Existing and emerging metal additive manufacturing technologies
Metal-oriented 3D printing services
End user industries and applications that are adopting metal printing.
Though some firms in 3D printing faltered in 2015, participants in the metal additive manufacturing segment continued on their path of explosive growth.
In this report, which is a follow-on to the widely read 2014 report on metals AM, we present a complete analysis of the metal powder additive manufacturing supply chain.
Materials covered in this report comprise steels, cobalt chrome, nickel alloys, titanium alloys, aluminum, copper alloys, and precious metals. AM technologies analyzed include laser-based metal powder bed fusion, electron-based metal powder bed fusion, blown powder-based directed energy deposition systems, and metal powder binder jetting systems. The report also looks at other metal technologies and how these may integrate into the majority powder market.
The industry-standard ten-year forecasts of powder demand are provided for all the main materials and AM technologies for both revenue and volume. Also provided are projections of install base and annual sales of machines used for metal AM by industry.
