3D Printing News And 3D Printing Disruptions When Will It End?

In an interesting study by Accenture, the disruptive effects of 3D Printing are actually being monetized. According to Cisco Systems Inc., there is an estimated $14.4 trillion in digital disruption dollars up for grabs between now and 2022. This makes it more and moire necessary for 3D Printing entrepreneurs to understand the business of 3D Printing.

Accenture believes that digital supply networks are the backbone of this new ecosystem: worldwide conduits that streamline and accelerate the exchange of products, materials, components and (perhaps most important) information. We also believe 3D printing is an ideal illustration of the digital supply network’s vast potential.

3D Printing And Logistics Where Is The Disruption?

According to our fiends ant Ernst And Young, 3D Printing is affecting all industries in different ways; The logistics sector, however, is experiencing particular disruption. The impacts are two-way: manufacturers will be able to 3D print products closer to their customers, on demand, so reducing logistics costs. This will influence the entire logistics and transportation industry, requiring it to adjust its business models. As 3DP technology advances swiftly, many global logistics players are considering its impact and how it will influence their future approach.

EY’s global research shows that 10% of all logistics and transportation companies already have experience of additive manufacturing. Will this be another disruptor? Read the full article EY

3D Printing Funding Bubble? Did It Break?

After the hype bubble sent 3D printing stocks tumbling in 2014, the industry is starting to recover, shedding much of the fat associated with consumer 3D printing. Instead, industrial 3D printers have become the focus, with even desktop 3D printer manufacturers focusing heavily on the application of affordable 3D printing for prototyping and designing, rather than the idea of a 3D printer in every home. That shift in focus still hasn’t managed to affect 3D printer companies much as our Nanalyze 3D Printing Stocks motif has return -8% over the past year compared to a +2.5% change in the S&P500.

According the the largest 3D Printing E-learning site, many of the new inventors are now being replaced with serious business executives. Its no easier to start a 3D Printing Business than any other type of business.

3D Printing Disrupting Manufacturing

According to a PWC study, more than two-thirds of US manufacturers are using 3D printing in some way-chiefly in prototyping.

71.1% of US manufacturers are applying 3D printing technology in some way, up slightly from 67% in 2014.

But, when we look at how the technology is being used, we see some important shifts. A higher percentage of manufacturers, compared to two years ago, are using it for prototyping (31.4%), the production of end-products (6.6%)-or both (13.2%). At the same time, fewer (17.4%) are merely experimenting to determine how the technology may be useful to their operations-down from two years ago when 28.9% said they were in the tinkering phase.

As customers demand faster turn arounds and more customization, 3D Printing will only rise.
