Additive manufacturing, or what's more commonly known as 3D printing, is changing the way in which manufacturing companies produce goods. This innovative new technology allows companies to design and build products using a 3D printer.

Printers have been restricted to creating two-dimensional objects, such as sheets or rolls of paper. With the advent of additive manufacturing technology, however, they are now capable of producing three-dimensional objects. Known as 3D printing, it allows manufacturing companies to produce goods using one or more base materials. The base materials are fed into a machine that uses them to build three-dimensional objects designed in a computer program.

3D printers typically convert the base materials into the computer-designed object using layers. Starting at the bottom, the 3D printer will feed base materials in layers until it reaches the top, at which point the three-dimensional object is finished and ready for use (or sale).
In recent years, many manufacturing companies and other commercial enterprises have invested in 3D printing solutions. The innovative new technology offers a variety of benefits, one of which a faster and more efficient manufacturing process. Using 3D printers, companies can build products in less time and with fewer resources. In turn, this allows companies to save money on their production process, resulting in higher profits.
The Global 3D Printing Market Outlook 2018-2023 report by Research N Reports is a comprehensive study of the global 3D printing market. Covering both current and future prospective, it offers professional insight into the additive manufacturing marketing and where it's headed.
Some of the key 3D printing vendors profiled in this report include D Systems, Stratasys, Envisiontec, Exone, Luxexcel, Materialise NV, MCOR Technologies Ltd, Optomec Inc, Voxeljet AG, Microtec Gesellschaft Für Mikrotechnologie MBH, Amazon.Com, Inc., HP Inc, Canon Inc., ARC Group Worldwide, Inc., Oxford Performance Materials Inc., EOS GmbH and SLM Solutions Group AG. and others.
The Global 3D Metal Printing Market Re…ecast 2018 - 2025 report by Research N Reports is a second professional study of the global 3D printing, though it focuses specifically on metal 3D printers. Metal 3D printers, of course, are designed specifically to build three-dimensional objects using metal or metals as the base material. While other 3D printers use plastics or synthetics as the base material, metal 3D printers live up to their namesake by using metal.
This report segments the global 3D metal printing market by several criteria. On the basis of product form, the market is segmented into powder and filament. On the basis of product material, the market is segmented into titanium, stainless steel, aluminum and others. On the basis of end-user application, the market is segmented into aerospace & defense, automotive, medical & dental and others.
