The author believes that the Oil and Gas Industry will be the next big adopter of additive manufacturing technologies as evidenced by the increasing use of AM in this industry for the past twelve months. In this new report we explore and identify the major opportunities for AM over the next decade, based on the dynamics on the specific dynamics of the global oil and gas market.
The author believes that this report is the only comprehensive study that provides a complete understanding of the important advantages that AM can bring to firms in the Oil and Gas Industry. Among the reasons to purchase this report are the following.
This report details the most comprehensive collection of areas of exploration for AM in specific oil and gas equipment, systems, and sectors from upstream to midstream and beyond
GE is already printing a variety of metal components for use in its oil and gas operations, while oilfield services companies such as Halliburton are actively exploring the use cases for both rapid prototyping as well as field production of parts. Advocates of AM at these companies believe that AM has the potential to radically alter the cost structure of oil exploration and drilling operations.
Given the importance that these major players in the Oil and Gas Industry are placing on AM, the author believes that it is time for marketing and business development executives at 3DP/AM hardware and materials firms to examine the new revenue streams that oil and gas applications could mean for their companies. This report will help them meet this objective.
