Small businesses are contributing to the development of 3D printing with exciting avenues being pursued.
The transformative abilities of 3D printing have been seen across many industries such as manufacturing, medical and aerospace. Further growth is happening now in smaller scale use, for example in education and small business. New research from IDC shows the global 3D printing market is on track to continue its expansion, as it is forecast to exceed $46 billion (about US$35 billion) by 2020, double the $21 billion (about US$15.9 billion) forecasted for 2016.*
At Y Soft, we believe that organisations looking to incorporate 3D printing should consider its use in rapid prototyping and product development.
