Review of 3D Printing in 2014 and the outlook for 2015

Review of 3D Printing in 2014 and the outlook for 2015

2014 has been a big year for 3D printing. Even established 3D printing companies have been posting huge growth. Both Stratasys and Arcam, with their vastly different technologies, are expected to report year-on-year growth of 57% this year. This steep upward trend in 3D printer sales is reflected in IDTechEx forecasts in 3D Printing 2015-2025: Technologies, Markets, Players. This article review all the major events and developments in 2014 and will give the IDTechEx view on the outlook for 2015.
