This is the latest business assessment and market forecast of metal additive manufacturing services.  It updates analysis and market projections and also extends the coverage to include a broader range of services and profiles of leading AM service firms.  It also assesses the impact on the business of service bureaus on the changes that have occurred in end-user industries and on the dramatic shift of AM to become a fully-fledged manufacturing process.

In addition to the updated projections of the core metal additive manufacturing services that were projected in this 2019 report, this report also provides ten-year forecasts of value-added design services, training services and non-AM manufacturing services that are increasingly part of the service bureau’s mix.  In addition, the analyst is including new industries in their analysis of metal AM services as well as adding five new service provider companies profiled in the final chapter of the report.
