What is the current state of 3D printing?

Just two years ago, 3D printing was set to transform manufacturing. Today, we’re seeing steady growth in adoption of the technology and its use to solve design and manufacturing challenges. The popularity and applications of additive manufacturing have continued to rise. But there are still challenges to overcome.

How are companies investing in additive manufacturing? What opportunities and challenges have come along with the adoption of 3D printing? How has the focus on production parts evolved? How are companies approaching outsourcing their 3D printing capabilities?

By conducting original research since 2017 and again in 2019, we’ve gained unique insight into how attitudes toward 3D printing have evolved over the years. This 2021 report is based on a survey of more than 300 decision makers.
