Infographic: Medical Markets Embrace Metals Additive Manufacturing Systems

Mar 19, 2020

by John Kosowatz

Metals additive manufacturing systems are commonly associated with one type—Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion. While that technology has the highest distribution globally, there are other known 18 AM metals systems. In 2019, three new metal AM principals were introduced. Many are still being developed, but the global metal additive manufacturing market is valued at EUR 1.51 billion, including system, material and service sales. The medical & dental segment commands a strong place within the market, building on its first applications in the 2000s. Aerospace, turbines & helicopters, along with automotive and energy also top the rankings from a market report performed by Ampower, a Germany-based consultant, which breaks down the metals additive manufacturing markets and technologies.
