INTRODUCTION

STUDY BACKGROUND

Three-dimensional (3-D) printing, also called additive manufacturing, is the process of making a three-dimensional solid from a digital model by depositing successive layers of material in different shapes. The first working 3-D printer was developed in the 1980s, but the high cost and limited range of applications of the earliest printers seemed to preclude their widespread use.

Since then, the introduction of new 3-D printing technologies such as 3-D inkjet printers has brought costs down. After a slow start, 3-D printing is poised for rapid growth. It took the 3-D printing industry more than 20 years to reach a value of $1 billion in 2009, but in 2012, it would reach $2 billion. This report projects the market to be worth more than $10 billion by 2021.

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
The goal of this study is to provide readers with a comprehensive understanding of the global market for 3-D printing technologies, including hardware, software, consumables and services. Specific objectives include:
-Identifying 3-D printing technologies with the greatest commercial potential during the forecast period (2016 to 2021).
-Analyzing the key drivers and constraints that will shape the market for these technologies as the basis for projecting demand over the next five years.
-Estimating current and future sales revenue of 3-D printing technologies through 2021.
-Identifying the companies best positioned to meet this demand because of their proprietary technologies, strategic alliances or other advantages.

INTENDED AUDIENCE
This report is intended for marketing executives, entrepreneurs, investors, venture capitalists and other readers who wish to know the direction in which the market for 3-D printing technologies is headed through 2021. The report addresses specific technologies and materials, but it is generally non-technical in nature and coverage. Thus, it is less concerned with theory and jargon than with identifying the materials with the greatest commercial potential and assessing the value of the technologies that the market is likely to purchase. The report is not written specifically for material scientists and technologists, but many of these professionals will be interested in its findings concerning the market for their work, including the availability of government and corporate research funding for different technologies and applications.

METHODOLOGY AND INFORMATION SOURCES
The findings and conclusions presented in this report are based on information gathered from primary sources within the industry, including vendors and users of 3-D printing products and services. Interview data were combined with information gathered through an extensive review of secondary sources, including trade publications, trade associations, company literature and online databases, to produce this report’s market projections.

The base year for analysis and projection is 2015, from which market projections were developed for 2016 to 2021. These projections are based on a combination of a consensus among the primary contacts and an understanding of the key market drivers and their impact from a historical and analytical perspective.

The analytical methodologies used to generate the market estimates are described in detail in the sections on the various types of 3-D printing technologies The documentation is intended to enable the reader to evaluate the projections, and if desired, substitute alternative assumptions.

All dollar projections presented in this report are in 2015 constant dollars unless otherwise noted.
