Corona Impact

The global outbreak of the COVID-19 virus led to a lockdown and travel ban in most industrialized countries. AMPOWER analyzes in this section the impact COVID-19 might have on the global metal Additive Manufacturing industry and will discuss potential scenarios on the future development of the market.

Metal AM Powder Material Suppliers

Additive Manufacturing powder supplier database

Metal powder suppliers

More than half of all metal Additive Manufacturing technologies use powder as feedstock. Considering the installed base of AM systems, over 80 % of all running systems work with metal powder. Most powder suppliers originally produced powder for other technologies such as coating or press sintering. Only recently they added suitable AM powder to their product portfolio. In 2020, some new players emerged focussing completely on Metal AM powder feedstock.

Additive Manufacturing start-ups

Additive Manufacturing is a highly dynamic and innovative industry. This leads to start-ups that form the technology landscape. Emerging mostly from university background, start-ups are most active in area of system development. Other fields include software, materials and applications.

Additive Manufacturing standards

The first user and supplier of Additive Manufacturing had to develop internal Additive Manufacturing standards all by themselves. New Additive Manufacturing standards enable for a faster adoption of the technology and allow suppliers and users to develop new Additive Manufacturing applications much faster. In this report section, the ASTM is reporting the current status of Additive Manufacturing standardization.
