About this report

The Composites AM 2020–2030 study, conducted during Q2 and Q3 2020, surveyed over 50 firms involved in the space and collected information on sales and business activity from all major firms operating in this segment.

3dpbm Research estimates that the composites AM market (materials, hardware, services and applications) will grow from $480 million in 2020 to over $10.6 billion by 2030.

The report focuses on the penetration of AM in the composites market as well as hardware technology and material science evolution, culminating in an assessment of the opportunities linked with composites AM adoption for prototyping, tooling and end-use part production.

In this study, users will find current assessments of the composites AM opportunity, including market positioning of all the key players along with demand and revenues forecasts for each hardware, materials, software, services, application and vertical adoption subsegment. All data is further broken out into each specific technological family, material type and form factor (for both matrix and reinforcement materials).

Leading and emerging companies addressed in the report include: Markforged, 9T Labs, EOS, SABIC, Ingersoll, Thermwood, Stratasys, CRP Group, Desktop Metal, Lehmann&Voss, DSM Additive Manufacturing (now part of Covestro), Solvay, Hexcel, CEAD, Electroimpact, Continuous Composites, Orbital Composites and several more.

In addition to supporting the market analysis and development efforts of suppliers, the report is targeted towards firms looking to enter the market and capitalize on developing opportunities, companies looking to implement AM for composites part production, helping them quickly and accurately understand the available possibilities and investors looking for the next disruptive production technologies and applications.
