In early February, Essentium, Inc announced the results of the second in a series of findings from independent global research on the current and future use of industrial 3D printing. We previously covered the first survey published in 2019, which focused mainly on the slow adoption of additive manufacturing for mass-production. This new survey has shown significant advancements in that particular arena as well as significant benefits for users of industrial additive manufacturing while also highlighting remaining challenges to overcome, notably concerning the cost of 3D printing technologies and materials.

Overall, however, the results were promising as they showed growth in adoption of AM and that investments in 3D printing are paying off for many manufacturers. The first part of the Essentium survey findings was published in 2019 and also aimed at looking at the practical experiences of stakeholders. Those results found that 3D technology had enormous potential but that industry had been slow at adopting it for mass-production.
