Economic Impact

It’s estimated that 3D printing could generate an economic impact of $230 billion to $550 billion per year across currently realized applications by 2025. The largest source of potential impact among the current applications would come from consumer uses, followed by direct manufacturing (i.e., using 3D printing to produce finished goods) and using 3D printing to make molds.


This brings us to the end of this article on the competitive analysis of 3D printing manufacturers.
