In 2015, the 3D printing industry began to experience write-downs, layoffs, and shutdowns, sending the industry deep into the trough of disillusionment.
Layer by layer, however, the industry seems to be rebuilding itself especially in high-volume production.
Commercial-scale heavyweights Carbon3D and Desktop Metal continue to raise big venture rounds, and a new crop of startups are leveraging next-gen polymers, carbon fibers, and other advanced materials for the production of parts.
Meanwhile, corporate venture arms in aerospace, industrial conglomerates, and design hardware developers are all active players in the investment ecosystem.
This presentation will cover investment trends, investors, and startups working on this next wave of 3D printing.
Specifically we’ll look at:
- Private market trends and the startup ecosystem
- How industrial-scale has given new life to the ecosystem
- Where advanced materials, composites, and nanostructures are changing industry
- Where corporates like Bosch, GE, Autodesk and 3D printing incumbents like Stratasys and 3D systems are investing
