Frost & Sullivan's complimentary webinar explores future implications of industries and personal lives
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., June 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

The outlandish 3-D printing concept from the 1980s has become one of the premier disruptive technologies in transforming traditional industrials models, sparking a new industrial revolution. 3-D printing will evolve from creating jewelry and spare parts to printing cars and even human organs. With the prices of 3-D printers falling dramatically and improvement in the speed of production (throughput), manufacturing-on-demand is becoming a reality.
3-D printing technology has been touted as having the potential to change the economies of scale for small and innovative enterprises. It is leading to mass customization. End-users will provide custom specifications of products and have them printed and delivered to their doorstep. Market leaders are adjusting their sales, distribution and marketing strategies to provide customization direct to the customers. With a fragmented value chain and no clear "one-stop-shop" solution provider, the market is seeing many solution and service providers monetizing in offering value added services in design and customization. With so many opportunities and a wide-open value chain, the global 3-D printing market is expected to triple with an expected revenue potential of $21.5 billion by 2025.

This webinar explores the evolution of 3-D printing and builds scenarios for future applications and implications. It will benefit all value chain participants from original equipment manufacturers to consumers as 3-D printing emerges as common denominator in all aspects.
"The interesting thing about 3-D printing is the mass-customization and on-demand business models that are emerging," said Frost & Sullivan Visionary Innovation Program Manager Archana Amarnath. "Offering customized products to meet the specific demands of each individual consumer at a low cost is a terrific value proposition that most businesses are looking to adapt."
"U.S. and China among the third largest countries standing to gain the most from the 3-D printing opportunity based on their level of investment, government catalysis and manufacturing potential in the 3-D printing market," said Vidyasekar. "China is looking to become a global leader in commercializing 3-D printing technology by using additive manufactured titanium parts in the aviation industry."
