However, that is not necessarily a bad thing. As we have recently learned from CES 2021, the pandemic has accelerated the adoption of a wide range of technologies and trends, and a number of these are salient to additive manufacturing. For example, automation and digitation are more important than ever. Pair that with the growing need for supply chain resilience, on-demand short-batch production, and relocalization, and you have the perfect catalyst for additive manufacturing adoption. The AM market is still very much on its way to reaching an estimated value of 26.68 billion by 2027 . If anything, 3D printing technologies were one of the unsung heroes of 2020. COVID-19 demonstrated AM’s potential to both consumers and businesses. In many ways, the pandemic has put 3D printing on people’s radar. As you are probably well aware, the 3D printing industry collectively produced […]
