Latest Developments and Trends in AM - Terry Wohlers

The breadth of AM applications is mind-bending to many. Few manufacturing processes cut across so many industrial sectors. Imagine producing a sensor of a few millimeters and a bridge of many meters using a similar successive layering process. This breadth has led to the development of hundreds of startup companies. In the future, it will be thousands. Based on research for Wohlers Report 2021, investment in startups grew from $1.2 billion to $1.3 billion last year, despite a pandemic. Meanwhile, companies in aerospace, healthcare, energy, and consumer products are scaling operations and seeking cloud-based platforms and automation systems to support their efforts. As these organizations scale, talent could become a problem. Other challenges are the adoption of industry standards and development of supply chains.
