Aniwaa, a leading sourcing platform dedicated to additive manufacturing equipment, has unveiled the new edition of its acclaimed AM hardware landscape infographic. This 2024 release includes a new section dedicated to post-processing equipment, along with 100+ updates reflecting the AM industry’s changing landscape.

Despite ongoing consolidations, AM remains a fragmented industry, with a multitude of manufacturers offering a wide range of solutions. Understanding this complexity, Aniwaa has created a comprehensive industry landscape infographic, mapping more than 600 active AM and post-processing equipment manufacturers by materials and technology.

Key findings from Aniwaa’s 2024 industry landscape include the dominance of polymer 3D printers (offered by 55% of manufacturers), followed by metal AM systems (26% of manufacturers). Among the highly scrutinized metal 3D printer market, spanning 157 manufacturers across 29 countries, laser powder bed fusion technology represents only 40% of metal AM manufacturers, down from 50% last year. Conversely, DED technology is on the rise, now accounting for 37% of all metal AM equipment brands. In terms of geographic distribution, the top three countries are home to more than half of metal AM brands: the US leads the way with 33 OEMs, followed by Germany (28), and China (25).

The team at Aniwaa worked collaboratively to improve the infographic, incorporating more than 100 modifications based on feedback from the AM community. Notably, the mapping now includes a section dedicated to post-processing, highlighting 20 pure-play manufacturers offering solutions in this key area of the AM ecosystem, from powder handling to heat treatment, surface finishing, coloring, and more.

“At Aniwaa, we understand the challenges faced by buyers in navigating the complex additive manufacturing ecosystem,” said Martin Lansard, Founder of Aniwaa. “Our landscape infographic, combined with our digital catalogs, provides buyers with a comprehensive view of all active manufacturers and solutions in each market segment. These insights are invaluable in their journey to make informed purchasing decisions.”

The team recently hit an important milestone: more than 160 manufacturers now actively manage their presence on Aniwaa, thanks to self-service accounts enabling them to optimize their visibility, monitor their traffic, and connect with potential customers.

“Our goal is to provide manufacturers with the tools they need to succeed in this competitive industry,” said Martin Lansard. “Our platform serves as a gateway for manufacturers to showcase their products, reach new markets, and ultimately acquire new customers. We believe that by enabling seamless and valuable interactions between manufacturers and buyers active in the market, we are driving the industry forward.”
