3D printing may well be considered as one of the most—if not the most—important technologies of the day.
While the technology has actually been around for quite a few years, the advancements made in 3D printing in the past five years have helped it become tremendously important on a global level.
3D PRINTING HAS FAR REACHING POTENTIAL AND IS ALREADY STARTING TO DISRUPT THE BIGGEST AND MOST IMPORTANT INDUSTRIES AND MARKETS IN THE WORLD.
Whether it’s in the manufacturing industry, the field of health care and medicine, in science, research, and education, or in fashion, entertainment, and culinary arts, 3D printing has begun to change the way we create things.
New applications for 3D printing are being discovered on a daily basis and new headlines on the impact the disruptive technology is having are being released so rapidly, that it’s tough to keep up.
In fact, some forecasts predict that the global market for 3D printing will reach $15.2 billion by 2025.
According to Gartner, Inc.’s most recent forecast, the worldwide shipments of 3D printers in 2017 will approach a half a million units—almost double the predicted amount of 3D printers shipped for 2015.
