Jan 12, 2018

As one of the most promising new technology in 21st century, 3D printing, due to its uniqueness and efficiency prevails all over the world.Now we Rich-Opto will make a brief analysis on the 3D printing market.

1. 3D Printing Technology

3D printing technology, also called addtive manufacturing, which is a prototyping process whereby a real object is created from a 3D design. The digital 3D-model is saved in STL format and then sent to a 3D printer. The 3D printer then prints the design layer by layer and forms a real object.

2. 3D Printing Industrial Chain

It contains 5 roles, namely, 3D printer manufacturer,raw material supplier, 3D printing software provider, 3D scanning supplier, product solution service supplier.

3. 3D Printing Market

This year, the sale amount of enterprise and individual is increasing. While suppliers of western country cover a much greater proportion. While the Asian 3D printing suppliers only take a small proportion less than 30%. As for application industry, the greatest application market is spare parts.

3D printing market is becoming more and more mature, and it simplify the craft production process and improve the efficiency and capacity. So the surge of 3D printing technology will be both a great challenge and opportunity for the enterprises.
