This IDC Web Conference presents 3D printing customer insights analyst Chris Chute's top-level findings from IDC's Worldwide Semiannual 3D Printing Spending Guide. 3D printing is one of IDC's 3rd Platform accelerators — an IT market that is both driving the disruption of traditional business processes and creating transformative products and services that enable a wider set of customers. While 3D printing has been a mainstay in the automotive and aerospace segments of discrete manufacturing, in recent years, lower-priced printers and affordable materials have dramatically widened the number of use cases for additive manufacturing.
Questions to be addressed include:
- What will be the top use cases for 3D printing over the next five years?
- Which regions will see strong growth?
- How will 3D printing reshape broader industries such as consumer services and healthcare?
IDC's Worldwide Semiannual 3D Printing Spending Guide is a semiannual product delivered via IDC's Customer Insights and Analysis query tool that provides readers with spending data on 3D printers, materials, and services across 20 different industries by 8 regions and more than 10 use cases. The spending guide is released as a pivot table twice per year.
