Opportunities in Polymer and Plastic 3D Printing - 2017 is the third generation of the world's most comprehensive analysis of polymer 3D printing technology. In this new edition, market analysis is segmented by print technology market as each major polymer print process settles into its own roles and established applications, our analysis has deepened to the specifics of each driving print technology and associated materials. Over the last two years, the polymer 3D printing industry has been in a state of tumultuousness marked by dozens of new competitors entering the market, partnerships for development of materials, and development of new print technologies. All of these and more have combined to create a whirlwind market that, in spite of so much activity and investment, has struggled to maintain its growth pace from 2012 through 2014 as customers have backed off purchasing in the traditional segments while adopting a 'wait and see' strategy. The demand for additive manufacturing in general has perhaps never been higher, but challenges associated with such rapid evolution in polymer and plastic 3D printing have suppressed growth in the face of historic interest in 3D printing at a professional level. As the global chemical and polymer suppliers of the manufacturing world move into position to exert more influence over the increasingly integrated 3D printing industry, market change appears imminent. Meanwhile, the commercialization of disruptive new print technologies such as those from Carbon, HP, Rize, and more all ensure 2017 will be a pivotal year. Utilizing purpose-built proprietary 3D printing market models, the report is able to present detailed market forecast data on thermoplastic filaments, powders, photopolymers, composites, and more utilized in popular print technologies of material extrusion (FDM, FFF), polymer powder bed fusion (SLS, Multi Jet Fusion), photopolymerization (SLA, DLP, CLIP), binder jetting, and more. All available materials for primary polymer print technologies are analyzed and forecasted, including market revenues as well as material shipments, by industry and geography, over the next decade. Therefore, the report believes that Opportunities in Polymer and Plastic 3D Printing - 2017 will provide exceptional value to business development professionals and internal market strategy teams for the global chemical and polymer industries, as well as polymer 3D printer manufacturers, print service providers, and developers of polymer 3D printing manufacturing solutions.

In yet another first, the author presents the first ever multi-market deep dive research study into additive manufacturing with nickel alloys utilizing powder based AM/3DP and other AM technologies. This study is complimentary to our research portfolio in metal additive manufacturing materials and related applications, and looks into the world of nickel alloys and the current and future potential for short run and serial production utilizing various AM techniques. Nickel based additive manufacturing is centered around superalloys ranging from Inconel to Hastelloy variants, with potential for a huge amount of material customization to fit a wide range of applications where highly resistant alloys are required. Though the aerospace industry is driving the vast majority of production opportunities in nickel AM, power generation and oil and gas applications also now have parts made of nickel superalloys by laser powder bed fusion systems in full-on production worldwide. This, along with tertiary emerging opportunities in both automotive and healthcare opportunities are combining to make nickel additive manufacturing the second most demanded material for AM processes over the next decade behind the diverse steel material segment. With electron beam melting technology now growing in its use of popular Inconel 718 alloy since it's blanket qualification for use in Arcam technology in late 2014, the landscape for driving additive manufacturing technologies in the use of nickel superalloy printing is changing. Meanwhile, supply chains for nickel alloy powder are expanding, with Alcoa/Arconic and ATI Metals both targeting production of such powders for additive manufacturing. As a specialty study in a specific material, this report presents our latest -- and highly granular -- market forecast data as well as critical market analysis for use of nickel alloys in key industries adopting AM, as well as considerations for the future adoption and use in other applications. The primary opportunity factors related to the broader supply chain, primary providers of AM nickel powder and other forms, and analysis of the print technologies and powder production processes all combine to help business development and strategy professionals determine how to focus their efforts in nickel powder, parts, and print technologies.
