Polymer AM Market Opportunities and Trends

3dpbm Research (December 2022). Polymer AM Market Opportunities and Trends.

As the first material category to be developed for additive manufacturing, polymers were also the first to begin their transition towards serial and mass manufacturing. This transition is now solidly underway. For the first time, this study quantifies exactly how large the current and near-future opportunities are for polymer additive mass production.

3dpbm Research’s polymer AM 2020–2030 study, conducted between Q4 2021 and Q3 2022, surveyed an unprecedented number of companies—857 in total (741 unique), of which, 24% were hardware manufacturers, 25% materials manufacturers and 51% service providers.
