The 3D Printing and Rapid Prototyping Services industry has grown quickly in recent years, driven by rapid technological developments, falling costs and new applications for 3D printing technology. In the coming years, industry demand and revenue are forecast to surge forward as 3D printing and rapid prototyping explodes in popularity and accessibility, especially in consumer markets.
Companies in this industry offer 3D printing and rapid prototyping, which is the automatic construction of physical objects using additive manufacturing technology. The competing technologies in the marketplace are differentiated by the way layers are built to create parts. Some melt or soften material to produce layers, while others lay liquid material thermosets that are cured. In the case of lamination systems, thin layers are cut to shape and then joined together.
