Though metal additive manufacturing is worth only a fraction of the overall metal manufacturing market, there is little doubt about the very real value it brings. This value is especially evident today, as the segment transitions from being primarily dedicated to prototyping and highly advanced production cases towards greater accessibility and scalability. In this eBook, we are leveraging the latest data from VoxelMatters’ database and soon-to-be-released Metal AM market report to explore the growth of metal additive manufacturing as well as transformative trends, such as large-format metal 3D printing and indirect metal AM production methods. As per usual, we’re kicking off the eBook with an analysis of the metal AM market based on VoxelMatters Research data.
Next, we turn to large-format metal AM with a look at how Velo3D’s newest (and biggest) LPBF machine, the Sapphire XC 1MZ, is being adopted in aerospace. An in-depth look at the top 10 players in metal 3D printing by revenue follows, providing insights into the state of the market and the ongoing dominance of hardware suppliers. Finally, we consider how sand binder jetting—used for metal casting—fits into metal 3D printing and how that niche segment is evolving. In other words, it’s a publication for real metalheads!
VoxelMatters’ eBook can be viewed by scrolling through the document above or downloaded for viewing on your favorite mobile device. In our effort to maintain an open discourse and open access to AM news, the publication is free to access. We at VoxelMatters have been ardently following the progress of Metal AM for years, and we are pleased to put the industry in the spotlight in a new, reader-friendly way!
