The Growth of Additive Manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing is growing exponentially every year. According to, AM is forecasted to grow from 18.2% in 2019 to 27.2% by 2023. With new materials being discovered and more printers being invented, the industry is seeing a spike in investments towards this lucrative market. In 2018, funding for 3D Printing startups surpassed $300 million.

AM simply means that, under the control of a computer, the object is built by depositing layer upon layer of material, or by solidification. AM is considered by most in the industry as a “disruptive” technology; one that will revolutionize many industrial sectors as it becomes faster and less expensive. As AM becomes more sophisticated and as understanding and awareness grows among manufacturers, machine shops as we know them will be fundamentally changed. Additive manufacturing will essentially change the way we build everything. Metal, plastic, concrete – even human tissue.
