Opportunity: Potential to enhance manufacturing and supply chain management

The 3D printing metals market, which has been growing at a significant rate, has the potential to change the manufacturing and supply chain management. Metal 3D printing provides several advantages, such as mass customization and short production runs. Unlike traditional manufacturing processes, metal 3D printing eliminates the tooling requirement. Although conventional manufacturing costs less per unit produced, it has high up-front costs for tooling, and the production is more expensive as compared to 3D printing for low-volume manufacturing. Metal 3D printing also helps in reducing the waste produced during the manufacturing process by building a part using a layer-on-layer process.

Aluminium segment accounts for the second-largest market share in the global 3D printing metal market

 Aluminum is one of the lightweight, strong, and electrically and thermally conductive materials, which makes it appropriate for outdoor applications such as door handle, window frames, and automotive door frames. It is also cost-effective and thus is used in the manufacturing of mechanical parts, tools and fixtures, bike and drone accessories, and structural components. Aluminum is used to manufacture engine parts and components in the automotive industry to reduce the overall weight of vehicles. The growth of the aluminum segment can be attributed to its physical and mechanical properties and its easy availability.
