Major Industrial 3D Printing Adopters
Born as a niche technology for prototyping, 3D printing has evolved through the investments made by 3D printing hardware manufacturers. As AM technologies transition toward becoming viable production technologies, larger industrial groups have increased their adoption of 3D printing hardware. As a result, AM adopting industries, such as aerospace and automotive, contribute significantly to accelerating their evolution.

This section of the includes medium and large international companies that have established a division to study, develop or implement 3D printing technologies. There are multiple industries in which these companies operate and they are all present as subcategories.

Aerospace and defense were the first and are the largest adopters of AM for production. As the prices of technologies and materials decrease, segments with higher production demands – such as automotive and jewelry have increased their adoption rates.

Other interesting advanced manufacturing fields such as robotics and electronics manufacturing are also increasingly implementing and benefiting from 3D printing. As a result, the ability for faster prototyping is reducing their time to market and their technological evolution.
