On July 2, it was learned from the German Federal Foreign Trade and Investment Agency that according to the latest statistics of the German Federal Information and Communication and New Media Industry Association (BITKOM), one out of every three German companies (32%) would use 3D printing.
In 2018, the percentage was 28% and two years later it was only 20%,and the statistics are based on the results of 555 German companies.
Max Milbrebt,3D printing expert from the German Federal Foreign Trade and Investment Agency believe that the technique is gonna be more and more popular in manufacture.This conclusion comes from the fact that 78% of respondents believe that the technology will have a profound impact on business models and value chains. This ratio is 8 percentage points higher than last year.
For the most part,3D printers have always been regarded as the key technology. Of the companies using 3D printing technology, 42% use this process to make patterns, molds or tools. 35% produce parts in this way.The interviewed company believes that one of the most important advantages of the technology is the production of tailor-made products through 3D printing,61% of respondents particularly believe in this possibility, compared with 53% last year.
55% of companies believe that increasing production flexibility is another economic opportunity for 3D printers, which was 50% last year. 16% of German companies believe that 3D printing can save costs.
And in China,although the application rate of 3D printing technology is not as high as that of Germany, it can be seen from the rising number of 3D printing patent applications and market scale that year after year, China’s future 3D printing market is very promising.From 2013 to 2017, the number of patent applications for 3D printing in China has increased by nearly 10 times, which shows that 3D printing technology has been more and more demanded in the field.
