ARC Advisory Group research on the global additive manufacturing market shows the intersection of 3D printer innovation, software advances and material creation with the COVID-19 pandemic is shining a new light on industrialized additive manufacturing. As part of a broader digital transformation strategy, additive manufacturing is part of the solution for disrupted supply chains, operational efficiencies, and new product development.

“The market for industrial additive manufacturing will grow at a double-digit rate through 2025. Last year was difficult due to the overarching macroeconomic pressures of the global COVID-19 pandemic, widespread trade tensions, and political unrest. Due to the uncertainty in the market, 2021 growth will be off to a slower start.
