Automation and Additive Manufacturing Market Report 2021 – Includes 3D Systems, Additive Assurance, and AMT among others –



DUBLIN – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – The report “Automation and additive manufacturing: opportunities and markets” has been added to offer.

Additive manufacturing (AM) has been considered an essential part of the factory of the future since the concept’s inception. So far, no publication has specifically discussed the role AM ​​will play in the factory of the future.

This report provides the raw data and analytics necessary for marketers, product planners, senior management, investors, and users to make AM an automated future.

So far, AM makes up about one percent of the overall manufacturing and production landscape. Despite the well-known benefits of AM, there remain significant barriers to AM adoption: slow processes involving multiple steps, high costs to scale up, shortage of skilled labor, difficulty in controlling quality throughout the supply chain and the immaturity of standards to facilitate regulatory compliance. All of these challenges – and their resolution – are discussed in this analytical report.

This report also examines the AM supply chain and its digitization in a number of critical industries, including electronic instruments, medical devices, transportation, industrial machinery, and processing equipment. Additionally, the report examines the critical issue of automating both local AM processes and distributed AM networks. And while the report recognizes the issues that arise in the context of integrating AM into the factory of the future, it also shows how AM will lead to lower fixed costs and smaller manufacturing footprints than traditional manufacturing. Two other areas the report examines are design automation and post-processing.
