Additive fabrication of high value metal components represents a small portion of the wider, growing industrial Additive Manufacturing (AM) economy. Economic and professional opportunities lay ahead for those who understand and adapt to the potentials and complexity of the various technologies involved.
As the AM market is predicted to reach a US$3.7b market by 2015 , the economic viability and sustainability of the industrial AM manufacturing market of high value metal components will rely not only on improving the technology itself but also on establishing competitive and responsive local supply chains and efficient skills training networks to actually revolutionise metal manufacturing. Companies and individuals capable of understanding and forecasting the industry-specific demands of high-value applications (aerospace, medical, automotive…) and capable of adapting their offers/skills will benefit of the knock-on effects and wider boost of this growing market economy.
