Additive Manufacturing Market to Reach US$ 1.1 Billion to 2019 – Research Based on Opportunities in the Automotive Industry

Additive Manufacturing Opportunities in the Automotive Industry: A Ten-Year Forecast–research available at

Automotive manufacturers were among the earliest adopters of additive manufacturing/3D printing (3DP) technology, but for decades have relegated 3D printing technology to low volume prototyping applications, while other industries have taken additive manufacturing to new levels. But today, an explosion of growth in utilization of 3D printing from automotive manufacturers is powering an evolution in automobile design and production. In this latest report, Researcher illustrates how 3D printing in the automotive industry will generate a combined $1.1 billion dollars by 2019. Browse " Additive Manufacturing Market" at .

Researcher believes that the automotive industry is at inflection point in its adoption of 3D printing, driven by several key trends:

  •  Record print volumes for 3D printed prototype parts are being achieved by several automotive manufacturers, upwards of hundreds of thousands of parts per year.
  • Use of 3D printing in automotive is evolving from relatively simple concept models for fit and finish checks and design verification, to functional parts that are used in test vehicles, engines, and platforms. This represents a shift in 3D printing adoption towards higher value applications and is an early step towards acceptance of 3D printed end-use parts in automobiles.
  • Leading automotive manufacturers are expanding beyond prototyping and test part production with 3D printing, and now experimenting with utilizing the technology for production of tooling and other parts to enhance the overall manufacturing processes for automobiles.
  • With these advancements, Researcher has developed a customer adoption model for 3D printing specific to participants in the automotive industry. A key feature of this report, the model is a template for illustrating the automotive industry’s current and potentially future adoption of 3D printing technology.
