Update 26/05/2020: We've now published our Additive Manufacturing Landscape 2020 report and infographic, featuring 231 organisations that are helping to drive digital manufacturing. Check out the full article here.    Additive manufacturing has gone through somewhat of a revolution over the last five to ten years. At one time thought to be a consumer-oriented technology, AM has now evolved into a viable industrial manufacturing solution.   As of 2019, the additive manufacturing industry is estimated to be worth over $9 billion dollars. While this is still a fraction of the wider $12 trillion ...
