SmarTech Launches Two New 3D Printing Industry Advisory Services for Tracking Growth

by • February 11, 2016 • No Comments

There’s a whole lot of growth and excitement in the 3D printing industry these days. Through all the chaos (that hasn’t all been positive) it’s become increasingly complicated to track developments, parse the reality of the illusions, and quite track specific growth indicators to be able-bodied to find guidance to significant business decisions that can fuel tomorrow’s industry growth.

But thankfully, as of February 2016, high high end market insights and significant market data for the 3D printing industry have become additional accessible than at any time thanks to SmarTech Markets’ new industry advisory services.

If you’ve heard the name preceding, that’s most likely for the reason SmarTech is the only true industry analysis group and consultancy that focuses one hundred percent of its efforts on 3D printing market research. Since 2012, the group has published 25 individual in-depth studies on different types of opportunity areas in 3D printing, producing it the broadest and most published provider of industry research for 3D printing in the world.

smartechBut an evolving industry calls for evolving approaches to keeping its leaders up to date with the latest data that is becoming significant for belief growth patterns and good outcomes. So, SmarTech now is growing the availability of its monthly advisory services to the industry at sizeable through its new Polymer 3D Printing Market Advisory Service and Metal Additive Manufacturing Market Advisory Service.

A Time Unlike Any Other for 3D Printing Calls for Better Solutions

In 2010, if you were to ask members of the rapid prototyping and and so metal additive making industry where they believed the industry may be in 2016, I highly doubt most may have been able-bodied to truly articulate the finer points of the chaos and explosive growth we have witnessed as an industry over the past six years.

Okay, back and so the hustle towards additional high end uses for additive fabrication was well underway, but ponder of what we’ve seen only in the past couple of years. There are now hip, spinal, cranial, knee, shoulder, finger, and rib cage implants manufactured via metal additive making inside of human beings around the globe. We are on the cusp of the initially home-grown billion dollar 3D printing device developer. There are commercial and military airplanes flying with 3D printed parts in them (both metal and polymer). Three of the world’s sizeablest innovation OEMs and household names are developing products for commercial sale inside the following two years. There is at very least one 3D printing device in space.

SmarTech has seen clear evolutionary steps in the needs of its clients in the 3D printing industry, that in itself indicate the maturation system of the industry at sizeable. No longer are high-level, industry wide skim reports meeting the needs of printing device developers, material developers, software companies, or end users. Greater focus, more detail, depth, and regularity are required to truly manual industry professionals in their efforts for advantageous solutions.

Why Advisory Services Matter

SmarTech’s new advisory services split the market into two categories in order to speak directly to the varying challenges synonymous with 3D printing innovation right now.

The Metal Additive Manufacturing Market Advisory Service is the direct response to three straight years of huge growth in purchase of metal AM systems, showcasing monthly reports to subscribers showcasing market data on hardware and metal powders forecasts, as well as market analysis in application development and making activity.

Meanwhile, the Polymer 3D Printing Market Advisory Service puts focus on the dynamic and complicated interrelationship between technologies like Fused Deposition Modeling, Selective Laser Sintering, Stereolithography, and additional. Not only is there a high degree of competitiveness in this segment, but the disruptive forces of low cost and PC polymer printing devices are setting the stage for serious transformation.

polymerSmarTech’s brand of advisory services are an significant step in the industry for the reason they provide two one-of-a-kind benefits:

First, subscribers get monthly market data of SmarTech’s proprietary market models that were turn it intod with the specific purpose of providing depth and accuracy.

Second, it increases access to market data and analysis of a source that is dedicated 100 percent to the 3D printing industry. SmarTech’s deep belief of 3D printing technologies, materials, applications, and users enable-bodied it to extract insights and turn it into market forecasts that have just been unavailable-bodied at any point previous in the industry’s 30+ year history. By providing an individual service to the two major categories of 3D printing innovation, industry professionals can get insights and data tailored additional specifically to their own activities.

Bringing Growth and Insight Together in 2016

The new advisory services of SmarTech show a degree of industry maturation in their own right. Demand for additional more detailed and qualified market research in 3D printing is the direct outcome of increasing importance of long term strategies of the industry’s most prominent players and 3D printing innovation’s most influential users.

There’s no doubt that 2016 can be an informative year for the industry at sizeable. The historic leaders can be looking to regain ground after a tough 2015, while the broader making communities of the world invest additional in use and development of additive fabrication and rapid prototyping or tooling. Using high end analytical sources can assist bring together growth and insight for good outcomes in a significant time.
