Opportunities for Directed Energy Deposition to Reach Almost $755 Million by 2025

This report identifies the opportunities presented by Directed Energy Deposition manufacturing  (DED) technology and its variants such as LMD, LENS, and WAAM.  DED is an additive manufacturing technology designed to build large parts. The DED process is rapid but rough cut and requires significant post-processing.

In this report the analyst shows where the addressable markets for Directed Energy Deposition Manufacturing machines are to be found – and where they fit into the AM business as a whole relative to other AM processes.  The report also explains the pricing strategies in the DED sector.  It takes a look at both powder-based and wire-based DED and also DED-based hybrids.  In addition, it examines the evolution of DED technology in terms of heat sources, print speeds, processing chambers, and power supplies.

The main part of the report provides a very highly granular ten-year forecast of all DED-related market segments.  These include the machines themselves as well as the materials broken by material type.  The analyst also has breakouts of machines by end-user industry, wire versus powder, and hybrid versus “pure” DED.

Both volume and value projections are included for all the forecasts. Finally, this report includes profiles of the DED strategies of 22 companies.

This and other metal additive manufacturing topics will be addressed at the The Business of 3D Printing: Medicine, Dentistry and Metals taking place on February 2020 in Boston MA.   This must-attend summit and Exhibition will be back in February 2020 for its third year, with a new conference track covering metals, as well its established coverage of medical/dental 3DP. As usual, the conference offers over 30 expert speakers, with this year’s focus being on end-user experiences, as well as the vendor, materials company and regulatory perspectives. As always with AMS, attendees will learn the most effective procedures and business opportunities in the critical sectors of 3D printing on which AMS 2020 is focused.

The AMS 2020 Exhibition will give attendees the opportunity to see the latest 3D printing products for metals printing and 3D printing in the medical/dental space, as well as the ability to network with other attendees to exchange experiences and conduct business.
