In 2018, the global metal Additive Manufacturing market size is valued at EUR 1,51 billion including system, material and service sales. Over 50 % of the market volume is driven by the revenue of the system suppliers. At the end of 2018 almost 8,000 metal Additive Manufacturing machines were installed. The ranking is led by Powder Bed Fusion with a total market share ratio of 90 %. This market share is expected to drop due to today’s investments into DED and sinter-based technologies such as Binder Jetting. Until 2023, users plan to invest into over 1,500 systems that are based on Metal FDM or Binder Jetting.

While those new metal AM technologies already exhibit significant technology maturity, there is a group of emerging technologies, that are expected to reach industrial maturity within the next 5 years. Among the companies developing these technologies are startups like Digital Alloys, Xjet and Headmade Materials as well as larger corporations such as Xerox. They each independently developed unique metal Additive Manufacturing principles which are introduced and discussed in this presentation.
