3D printing has been hailed as the future of manufacturing and a technological breakthrough that can revolutionize the world. The technology has now found applications in many different fields, from manufacturing, everyday objects, to prototyping. We assess the size and future growth potential of the global 3D printing market.
Korean 3D printer maker Carima has been in the spotlight with its latest C-CAT technology, which can dramatically enhance printing speed. The Seoul-based company claims the seventh largest market share in the global 3D printer market. We also meet ROKIT, a pioneer in 3D bioprinting technology, that prints scaffolds and bioink to create artificial organs and skin.
One of the critical factors ensuring the widespread adoption of 3D printing is the development of materials. This explains the heavy emphasis placed on materials development in a number of sectors including automobiles and aviation. In Korea, KIST, or the Korea Institute of Science and Technology, is leading R&D efforts in new materials development for 3D printing. Learn more about the latest technologies in 3D printing that are driving new growth and innovation.
