2020 Market Study on Additive Manufacturing with Metal Powders - ResearchAndMarkets.com

The "Additive Manufacturing with Metal Powders 2020" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Unforeseen to anyone, metal additive manufacturing technology finds itself at a critical junction in 2020 in the midst of the supply chain disruption and manufacturing downturn brought on (or at least intensified) by the COVID-19 global pandemic. In a way, it feels a bit like destiny -metal additive markets have been undergoing significant growing pains the last year, and the arrival of shutdowns, shortages, delays, and major economic contractions almost immediately proved the value proposition of additive manufacturing in a very real way. In this sixth edition of the market-leading AM study, the latest expectations for metal additive technologies are presented along with a wealth of market forecast and tracking data to aid in weathering this critical juncture.

For many metal AM stakeholders, the challenge at hand is significant, meaning that these next several quarters and years may be the difference between life and death for the crowded metal additive market. As a result, the focus of this edition of the annual Additive Manufacturing with Metal Powders market study has shifted to short term strategies, outlooks, and analysis. Included data has been updated to reflect the most up-to-date expectations for the 2020 and 2021 years -though most in the industry, or any industry, are unsure exactly what to expect going forward as government restrictions related to the pandemic drag on.

This report features a new two-part analysis package featuring the most expansive metal additive manufacturing market database available, with dozens of market forecast metrics covering metal AM hardware, materials, print services, and trend analysis. In addition, a written component summarizes and identified key industry drivers and trends, leading innovators in the industry, and provides the context and assumptions behind the market projections.

Clients will be able to leverage this analysis package to identify opportunities and drivers in metal AM segments across the value chain, while also measuring performance against historical and future growth data at a detailed level, and providing a roadmap for internal additive business strategies.
