Market Report: The $3.1bn Market for Ceramics Additive Manufacturing
Although ceramics is a niche market within the overall additive manufacturing industry, development of ceramics AM is expected to ramp up because AM processes can provide ceramic part manufacturers with valid solutions to current design challenges, while guaranteeing superior mechanical properties.
According to SmarTech Research, the ceramics AM market is expected to reach $151m by 2021 (including hardware, materials and services), driven by an estimated $268m in revenues and value generated by ceramic AM applications in prototyping and part production. The ceramics AM market will experience a second development phase driving the overall market value (including applications) to top $3bn by 2027.
