This report identifies the opportunities presented by Directed Energy Deposition manufacturing (DED) technology and its variants such as LMD, LENS, and WAAM. DED is an additive manufacturing technology designed to build large parts. The DED process is rapid but rough cut and requires significant post processing.
This report shows where the addressable markets for Directed Energy Deposition Manufacturing machines are to be found - and where they fit into the AM business as a whole relative to other AM processes. The report also explains the pricing strategies in the DED sector. It takes a look at both powder-based and wire-based DED and also DED-based hybrids. In addition, it examines the evolution of DED technology in terms heat sources, print speeds, processing chambers and power supplies.
The main part of report provides a very highly granular ten-year forecast of all DED-related market segments. These include the machines themselves as well as the materials broken out by material type. We also have breakouts of machines by end-user industry, wire versus powder, and hybrid versus pure DED.
Both volume and value projections are included for all the forecasts. Finally, this report includes profiles of the DED strategies of 22 companies.
