Report Highlights

The 3D metal print industry anticipates that solutions to obstacles faced by the metal additive manufacturing (AM) are ready to galvanize a ten-fold increase in AM-produced metal products by 2021.
Metal products produced by additive manufacturing had a value of about $210 million in 2016, a fraction of the $10-plus trillion global manufacturing market. By 2021, BCC Research predicts new SLM software, alongside consistent optimized powders, could drive this figure just more than $2 billion.

Report includes

  • Analysis of the development of product qualification, certification method, and protocol that will be essential to replicable product characteristics.
  • Insight into why improved process control software is needed to ensure consistent production of parts.
  • Details on gas atomization optimization of metal powders tailored for AM.
  • Details on improved beam control and in-process data gathering for SLM approaches.
