Additive manufacturing can be defined as the process of making objects from 3D model data by using additive materials; it represents all additive processes, technologies, systems, and applications. It can be used to manufacture products of any geometrical shape with a wide choice ofthe material to be used. Hence, it is now viewed as the solution for production with less resources and fast output.

Additive manufacturing has several advantages such a slower resource requirement, faster production cycle, flexible design, and substantial savings on tooling over traditional manufacturing technologies such as  injection molding, Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining, and vacuum casting. This is very conducive in the manufacturing of low volume customized products of high value.

This report describes market trends, drivers, and challenges for the additive manufacturing market and forecasts the market from 2014 to 2020 on the basis of technology, material, application, and geography. The market by geography is segmented into the Americas, Europe, APAC, and RoW (Rest of the World).

In the additive manufacturing market by technology, stereolitho graphya ccounts for the largest percentage share, followed by the Poly-Jet technology. Consumer products represent the major application market followed by the automotive industry. The Americas accounts for the highest share among all geographic regions; whereas plastics account for the highest share in the materials market.

Major players in the market include 3D Systems, Inc. (U.S.), Stratasys Ltd. (U.S.), ExOne (U.S.), Arcam AB (Sweden), EnvisionTEC (Germany), EOS (Germany), Materialise NV (Belgium), and MCor Technologies Ltd. (Ireland).
