Additive Manufacturing with Metal Powders Markets, 2019 Report - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "Additive Manufacturing with Metal Powders 2019" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

This report features a new two-part analysis package featuring the most expansive metal additive manufacturing market database available, with dozens of market forecast metrics covering metal AM hardware, materials, print services, and trend analysis. In addition, a written component summarizes and identifies key industry drivers and trends, leading innovators in the industry, and provides the context and assumptions behind the market projections.

2018 was a year marked by highs and lows for the metal additive manufacturing market, and in this fifth edition of the popular industry report, the Vice President of Research Scott Dunham outlines a clear path for the future of metal additive manufacturing technologies, while highlighting trends associated with the supply chain for metal powders and individual technologies themselves. In last year's edition, the analyst reported it expected that 2018 and 2019 would see the market entering a period of renewed growth.

During 2018, the technical pace of change and sheer volume of advancements and new products left industry stakeholders and users reeling in an attempt to understand market dynamics and determine optimal paths forward, artificially hindering growth in the largest segment of the market. The analyst likens this temporary period to a car's tires spinning on a wet road during a quick take-off -once traction is quickly regained, the real acceleration can begin.

With three primary powder-based metal additive technology families now beginning to carve out and establish real value propositions in manufacturing, the future of path for metal AM appears to be one of the diversified solutions and selective application of all processes to their proper applications. Winners in the market over the long term will be able to understand, leverage, and ultimately master all-metal additive techniques to achieve a truly disruptive digital manufacturing revolution.
