gartner: 3d printer industry to see massive growth over the next few years
There is no denying the fact that 3D printers have gained cool factors in the past few years. This led to an increase in the purchase of amateurs and other non-amateurs Industry consumers. This growth has now led to explosive growth in the industry. In a Gartner report, the technology research firm said shipments of 3D printers selling at less than $100,000 worldwide would grow by 49% in 2013. In other words, the 3D printer company will see 56,507 points. The price of 3D printers this year is $100,000. This figure is expected to double by 2015. \"The 3D printer market has reached an inflection point,\" said Peter barreyer, research director at Gartner . \". \"While this is still an emerging market, there is an urgent need for hardware, software, and service providers to provide easier development speed and an increase in buyer interest thanks to the hype that exceeds the technical reality --to- Use tools and materials to produce continuous high yieldQuality results. \"The above hype is now a serious driver behind consumers buying 3D printers. Due to the increase in mainstream coverage, consumers are now more interested in 3D printing than ever before. Of course, sales in the consumer sector will still lag behind those purchased by businesses, but sales will grow steadily as the price of desktop 3D printers continues to decline. In fact, consumer spending on 3D printers will reach nearly $87 million in 2013, while corporate market spending on 3D printers will reach $0. 325 billion. Consumer spending is expected to reach $0. 133 billion in 2014, while corporate spending will increase to $0. 536 billion. He said: \"The hype of consumer 3D printing has made enterprises realize that the price points and functions of 3DP have changed significantly in the past five years, driving the growth of shipments starting in 2014 . \"Basiliere. \"Most enterprises are now beginning to fully understand all the cost methods of 3DP -- Effective use in their organization, from prototyping and product development to fixtures and molds used to make or assemble items to drive the finished product. Now, many people in the organization, not only managers in engineering and manufacturing, but also senior enterprise managers, marketing managers and others, have heard the hype, they want to know when the enterprise will have a 3D printer. Gartner also predicts that seven of the world\'s 50 largest multinational retailers will produce 3D printers by 2015. Today, we \'ve seen the beginning of the 3D printers that Staples, UPS, and Microsoft stores offer to consumers and businesses. \"Key multinational entities and online retailers have the ability to market technology to consumers and corporate buyers, generate demand and revenue for equipment by selling printers and supplies, and sales of personal 3D Print, \"said Mr. Basiliere. \"Staples superstore Staples is already on the market and other super stores and consumer goods retailers such as Yamada Denki are the main candidates for selling printers and finished 3D printed products. Their presence in the market will have an impact on the average selling price, forcing suppliers to lower Consumer 3DP profit Sales as of 2017. \"The research is definitely interesting, but it doesn\'t take into account the proliferation of cheap 3D printers on Kickstarter and Indiegogo. This new way to get cheap 3D printers is getting more printers into the hands of consumers than ever before. Hell, we only need $100 for our 3D printer right now. If this trend continues, we may see major manufacturers such as MakerBot and 3D Systems lower prices to better compete with independent manufacturers.
