China 3D Printing Market Forecast 2017–2021

China 3D Printing Market Forecast 2017–2021

We will mainly focus on the market developments and dynamics of the professional 3D printer market in China. "Users require more knowledgeable advice from their suppliers nowadays. To differentiate themselves and increase their competitiveness, 3D printer vendors and solution suppliers should take a step further and engage with their customers and look into their needs," says Wendy Mok, research manager, IDC China's Imaging, Printing, and Document Solutions research. She adds, "Although majority of 3D printers shipped in China are for prototyping applications, vendors need to develop more advanced solutions to drive the growth of other application markets and help the customers grow their business."
