New report on consumer 3D printing applications [Source: VoxelMatters]

Our friends at VoxelMatters have developed a very different market study for 3D printing.

There are plenty of market reports available for the industry, but they typically focus on the technology. You might find a report detailing the current state and forecast for metal 3D printers, for example.

This new report from VoxelMatters is quite different, and turns the idea of a 3D print market report upside down: instead of focusing on the technology, they’re focusing on the applications themselves.

The report specifically analyzes consumer products that can be produced using the technology. But wait, what consumer products are made with 3D printing? Consumer products by and large are injection molded, but there are several niche areas that have proven feasible to produce customized consumer product components or those with complex designs.

VoxelMatters lists the major consumer product applications as: Footwear, Eyewear (frames), Sports equipment, Jewelry, Design products (furniture, lighting), Consumer electronics, Fashion and Toys. I’ve seen plenty of examples in these areas, and they are definitely areas of interest.

VoxelMatters covered not only the 1000+ 3D print companies servicing this particular market, but also many of the end-use companies using the technology to produce the consumer products.

Why purchase this report? VoxelMatters explains:

“In addition to supporting the market analysis and development efforts of current suppliers, the report is targeted towards companies looking to enter the market and capitalize on developing opportunities. Consumer product OEMs looking to implement AM for polymer part production will benefit from this study by quickly and accurately understanding currently available technologies, materials, and services, as well as the benefits, challenges, and market potential of each. Finally, this document serves as a guide for investors looking for the next disruptive production technologies.”

The report is set for release in mid-July, but it can be pre-ordered now. If you’re interested, pre-orders receive a big discount of £500 (US$640) off the normal price.
