We mentioned the other day that ExOne, makers of 3D printers capable of printing in metal, sand and glass, went public by launching an IPO (initial public offering). Their shares went on sale to the public on February 7th at an opening price of USD$24.23. By the middle of the next day, the price had risen to USD$33.60, a gain of almost 39% - in a single day!
We've already seen massive price rises in the two other major publicly traded 3D printing companies, 3D Systems and Stratasys. ExOne now joins the party.
It's now clear that there is massive public interest in 3D printing. One of the ways the public can demonstrate their interest is buying stock. The other, of course, is purchasing 3D printers. Let's watch for sales to rise over the course of this year.
