New Market Research Report: Global 3D Printer Market 2016-2020

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Thu Feb 25 2016

3D printing, also known as AM, uses CAD to create an object. It is a process of making 3D objects using plastic, metal, and composite materials, usually layer upon layer, to build physical models, prototypes, patterns, tooling components, and production parts.

Basically, in 3D printing, the first step is to make a virtual design of the desired object, and this virtual design is made in a CAD file by using a 3D scanner or by using a 3D modeling program. The next step, after getting the 3D file, is to print it; the 3D modeling software in the 3D printer will "slice" the design into numerous layers, and uses the material to create the object layer by layer.

Technavio's analysts forecast the global 3D printer market to grow at a CAGR of 41.5% during the period 2016-2020.
