3D printing is an emerging technology with the potential to revolutionize the manufacturing industry. It allows consumers to download designs from the internet and transforms them into physical objects.

Enormous opportunities are present, currently, for the 3D printing industry. It has, now, been realised to be a key source to economic growth, and plays a pivotal role towards the strengthening of the design and online retail market. It offers substantial, eco-friendly benefits, by removing the transportation of goods all across the globe; and allowing new, sustainably sourced materials. It reduces the costs involved in conventional manufacturing process, immensely.

The 3D printing market is moving at a very rapid pace and is witnessing enormous developments in patent filings. All the key players are investing, immensely, on research and development activities to gain ‘the first mover advantage’. The 3D printing industry is witnessing a binge of new product developments, mergers & collaborations, expansions and other activities in the research and development field.

The roots of the contemporary 3D printing can be was traced back to the mid-1980’s, with the advent of Stereo Lithography (SLA) technology. Chuck Hull, the inventor and founder of 3D Systems,-invented the ‘original’ 3D printing technology; that is, the Stereo lithography (SLA); he led the development of the .stl file format, which still remains the bench mark in ultra-high-definition 3D printing and CAD connectivity, till date. After years of unsuccessful efforts, Hull’s perseverance and inventiveness paid-off when he printed a ‘teacup’. On 3, October 2013, Chuck Hull was being honoured with the “George R. Stibitz Computer and Communications Award” by the Montana state university.

In 3D printing ecosystem, 3D systems offer their services in various industries; and their market focus lies across all the geographies around the world. The company has been spending aggressively on their R&D activities; for instance, the company spent $23.2 million, $14.3 million, and $10.7 million, respectively, on their R&D, in the year 2012, 2011 and 2010. These R& D efforts majorly focus on developing new printers and print materials that augment the company’s product lines and existing capabilities.
