The Seventh Edition of SmarTech's "Additive Manufacturing with Metal Powders 2023" analyzes the challenges and opportunities facing metal additive manufacturing (AM) stakeholders in light of current market forces. The analysis anticipates that the contraction in hardware investments may be at least partially offset by slight single-digit growth in opportunities for materials and production services fueled by newfound interest in the technologies during the second half of the year. The latest forecasts in the report expect the metal AM market to to achieve significantly more growth in 2023 compared to the total additive market overall. For the first time in its history, this growth is expected to be powered by the actual use of metal additive processes rather than a majority of prospective interest and research, driven by material consumption and printing services for profit.

The metal additive manufacturing market has been growing by leaps and bounds since 2014 when SmarTech Analysis - the leading market analysis and consulting group in AM -began tracking and reporting on the technologies. The latest report features a concise but detailed exploration of current trends and a focus on the post-pandemic dynamics of the market, while reaffirming long term outlooks in the technology. A robust market tracking and forecasting dataset is provided with the report featuring everything from hardware, materials, services, and metal AM part production metrics.

Companies profiled and considered in this report include: EOS, GE Additive, Velo3D, SLM Solutions, Trumpf, Farsoon, Renishaw, 3D Systems, EPlus3D, AddUp, Additive Industries, BLT, 6K Additive, IperionX, Carpenter, and many more.
