Global 3D Printed Polymers Market Report - Patent Analysis, Technologies & Forecasts 2016 - Vendors: 3D Systems, Stratasys, HP - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "3D Printed Polymers: A Patent Landscape Analysis - 2016" report to their offering.

Polymer-based 3D printing has been mainstay of 3D printing/additive manufacturing since its inception. It still represents the overwhelming majority of activity for low-cost 3D printers and continues to grow rapidly. In addition, 3D printing has expanded to cover an extraordinarily wide variety of polymers.

This report is based on an extensive search of relevant patents and patent applications published after December 1, 1995 from the US and WO patent databases to identify a broad, yet relevant patent landscape related to polymer materials used for 3D printing. The report presents the quantitative patent landscape, which is essential to identifying the players, technologies, patent filing velocity, geographic distribution, and technology classifications in in the 3DP polymers area.

Questions Answered:

  • What patents have been granted and what patent applications have been filed?
  • What are the top cited patents?
  • How many patents are being filed each year?
