3D Printing Technologies

This IDC study identifies the key 3D printing technologies and analyzes the strengths and weaknesses of each technology, predicting which will be utilized in key applications in the future. "The worldwide 3D printing market is expected to grow at an amazing rate of 25% over the coming years, and a big part of that is fueled by the developing technologies that make up the 3D printing market. While fused filament fabrication/fused deposition modeling (FFF/FDM) printers make up the vast majority of new printer shipments, the range of materials and capabilities that other technologies offer promises to transform the landscape of 3D printing into real 'additive manufacturing.'" — Tim Greene, research director, Hardcopy Solutions, at IDC
