Research Report - Additive Manufacturing in 2020 - What’s ahead for 3D printing in the new year

The benefits of additive manufacturing are real, but over the last 5 years 3D printing users have learned to separate 'hype' from 'hyperbole' and have discovered where additive manufacturing can truly be applied in the product development lifecycle.

At the beginning of the new year and new decade of progress in the additive manufacturing industry, we surveyed nearly 700 3D printing users to get a pulse on how they’re using the technology now, and what changes they see in the future.

The responses of this survey represent a range of business sizes from small design shops to some of the largest companies in the world, including Airbus, Bell Helicopter, Textron, Walt Disney Company, Ford, GE, Google, Honda, Nestle Purina, Nissan, Siemens, Johnson&Johnson, NASA and Honeywell International.

Engineers and designers intimate with the value and challenges of the technology shared their thoughts on the future of AM, and what issues will significantly influence the market for 3D printed parts.
