Trends in 3D printing in 2020


Last year saw staggering growth in the enterprise 3D printing market, which is shaking up manufacturing sectors around the globe. High-volume, low-value production manufacturing is shifting to a nimbler model, although the change isn’t without some growing pangs, as recent on-demand manufacturing stumbles suggest.

Still, the growth is undeniable. According to a new report by 3D Hubs, an online manufacturing platform that provides engineers with on-demand access to a global network of manufacturing partners, the total value of 3D printed parts increased by a stunning 300 percent in 2019. Over 550,000 parts were 3D printed in 3D Hubs’ ecosystem alone, and the total value of 3D printed parts tripled.


Almost without question, the biggest areas of immediate growth for 3D printing will be new product development, which is already seeing strong adoption, as well as aftermarket supply chains. The surprising thing may be the sheer volume of industries moving to additive manufacturing architectures on either end of the production ecosystem. We’ve seen applications across multiple industries, including Automotive, Aerospace, Maritime, Medical, Space, Sports, Motorsports, Railway, and Defense, to name just a few.
