10 Industry 4.0 Predictions for 2021
Micro 3D printing is here to stay
John Kawola, CEO of Boston Micro Fabrication, predicts a continuing trend in miniaturization.
“Additive Manufacturing (AM), or 3D Printing, has been around now for over 30 years. For a long time, there were only a few technologies available and applications were generally limited to prototyping. In recent years however, a new wave of innovation and use has emerged, extending beyond engineering and design into short and medium scale production applications.” Kawola says that AM market is now estimated to be $10B per year with continued strong growth forecasted.
