Currently 18 different metal Additive Manufacturing technologies are commercially available. Many of them in an early market penetration stage looking for fast growth and increasing market share. Powder Bed Fusion, by far the most common technology, however, looks back on a challenging year with stagnation of sold units. Powder Bed Fusion continues to lead in terms of installed and sold machines. Having the highest maturity index, PBF is used as production technology throughout all verticals. However, in 2019 the number of sold units stagnated. Meanwhile other metal AM technologies such as Direct Energy Deposition came into the buyers’ focus. Consequently, the installed base of DED machines significantly increased over the last year.
