This research service on the future of additive manufacturing evaluates the evolution of additive manufacturing across multiple regions and industry verticals. It brings out the implications of the IIoT-based connected supply chain due to the adoption of additive manufacturing in actual production.

The study provides the all-important growth strategies that need to be adopted by solution providers to achieve sustainable growth in the additive manufacturing market. It also analyses the different options in organic and inorganic growth strategies. Our expert analysts have also shortlisted some of lucrative future business models in the additive manufacture space.

Key Findings:
- Graphene-based 3D printing through Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) will be next big innovation in additive manufacturing market
- Very high potential of product differentiation and supporting demand for unique products will reduce commoditisation of 3D printing
