This report provides an overview of 3D printed ceramics and primary, commercially available fabrication processes. The report also identifies new and emerging processes for AM of ceramics, analyzing and assessing their potential in terms of medium and long-term revenue opportunities.
The market is analyzed based on Technology (hardware), Materials (both technical and traditional ceramics), Production (in terms of AM service and research), Applications (in terms of primary adoption segments: medical, aerospace, energy, electronics, prototyping, tooling and consumer products such as tableware and jewelry), and Software (general AM and ceramics AM-specific).
This market has enormous potential because it offers a valid manufacturing alternative to industrial segments - such as the dental, biomedical, aerospace and energy segments - that are already registering yearly business volumes in the order of several - and even serval hundreds - billions of dollars.
Accurately quantifying the impact that ceramics AM is going to have on the overall ceramics manufacturing industry is a challenging task which must begin from analyzing today's market in terms of ceramics AM technologies, available materials, dedicated software and ceramics AM service revenues (both material agnostic and dedicated ceramic AM service bureaus). Building on SmarTech Publishing established growth model for the overall AM industry, this report will combine this information with estimates relative to the potential of ceramics AM applications in every major adoption segment.
