2019 3D Printing Trends

  1. 1. 3D printing has been showing promise since its inception and has already been transformative in a wide range of industries. But over the course of a year, 3D printing utilization has skyrocketed at companies with more than 1,000 employees. Jabil’s 2019 survey of 300+ 3D printing decision-makers clearly demonstrates the upward trajectory of the popularity and applications of additive manufacturing. HOW MANUFACTURERS USE 3D PRINTING 2017 69% - 27% 23% 14% 30% 7% 2019 66% 53% 52% 39% 38% 37% 1% VERSUS Prototyping *Research and development Production parts Bridge production Repair Jigs, fixtures and tooling Other *Research and development was not offered as an option in the 2017 survey and was the majority of “other” responses. 3D Printing is common and use cases are expanding rapidly. Prototyping is still the most common use case, but production parts are catching up. companies already use 3D printing to produce at least 25 percent of their functional or end-use parts. preventing companies from utilizing 3D printing in production today: Materials Workforce Process Further expansion of 3D printing use expected. How do you expect your company’s use of 3D printing to change in the coming 2-5 years? 2 OUT OF 5 3 BIGGEST ISSUES 2017 23% 42% 32% 3% 0% 2019 39% 47% 10% 4% 0% VERSUS Increase somewhat (more, but not double) of respondents from the electronics industry expect their 3D printing use to dramatically increase. companies say utilizing 3D printing saves at least 50 percent of the time compared to conventional manufacturing methods. companies say 3D printing has already changed the way their industries think and operate.
