3D printing is a form of additive manufacturing, where a 3D object is created by layer-by-layer deposition of a printing material. The basic principles in 3D printing include flexibility of output, material cartridges and translation of code into a visible pattern. Various industries such as footwear, architecture and automotive among others use 3D printing. This technology is used for rapid prototyping, speedy manufacturing, mass customization and mass production. Manufacturers are increasing the use of this technology due to the ease of using this technology compared to the traditional methods. Thus, the demand for 3D printing is expected to experience robust growth in both commercial and personal printing applications in the coming years.

The global 3D printing market was worth USD 2,200 million in 2012 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 16.8% from 2013 to 2019. The growth of this technology is driven by expanding application of 3D printing across various application sectors such as consumer products and electronics, automotive and medical. Additionally, consumers’ access to 3D printing has increased due to rise in the number of 3D printing service centers. Furthermore, the availability of low-cost printers has increased the demand for 3D printing in personal use.

A major factor restraining the growth of this market is the inability of a 3D printer to produce in quick time. The production of large objects consumes more time with 3D printing as compared to traditional manufacturing methods. Moreover, infringement of intellectual property rights has increased the number of laws and regulations adding another restraint to the market.

Additive Manufacturing, 3D Printing, and the Coming Stock Market Boom

We’re at the dawn of a new era: additive manufacturing allows us to create objects by programming and then printing them layer by layer.

The way we make things hasn’t changed much since the days of a stone axe, made by bashing two rocks against one another. We take something big and make it useful by cutting, chiseling, drilling, and otherwise reducing it. We accept a huge amount of waste and severe technical limitations: for example, it may be impossible to drill an S-shaped passage through a solid piece of material.

Now, think of printing a page on a dot-matrix printer, which delivers a multitude of color dots to a blank page. Imagine that this printer works in 3-D, printing one level on top of another, building a three-dimensional object, layer by layer.

Such technology already exists; you can already buy and use a 3-D printer.

This technology is overturning the key manufacturing principle of the past million years. Our ability to create new objects will soon be limited only by our ability to program them. We can create objects that are as complex on the inside as on the outside.

For example, rather than driving to the hardware store to buy a wrench, we’ll have a 3D printer and download a file to print the tool we need. Not only will we save energy, we’ll need to buy less: you won’t have to get a complete socket set when all you need is a single size. Manufacturing will return to the US since it will cost roughly the same to print something in Detroit as in China but the shipping cost will be lower and time will be saved.

The coming technological revolution will change our lives. Along the way it’ll fuel a stock market boom. This e-book will help prepare you for the great ride ahead and introduce you to the stocks of this looming bull market.

SECOND EXPANDED EDITION, OCTOBER 2012 adds new chapters on:home-building, the military, companies outside the US and unlisted companies in the US.

While additions are sprinkled throughout this book, the expanded chapters are: The tipping point, A meeting with a founding father, Medicine and dentistry, and The AM stocks to watch. All stock charts have been updated to reflect current market action. There are nearly 40 illustrations and links to a dozen videos.
