Additive manufacturing

Additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, is the fastest-growing sector of manufacturing globally, due to the many benefits it offers companies in terms of new product development, time to market, reduced waste and product cost.

Additive manufacturing allows for the design and production of complete complex products and associated advanced business models such as customer-led design processes and just-in-time production.

Industry Opportunity Survey

Driven by globalisation, Additive Manufacturing is influencing how companies in the first world address the emergence of new markets with lower cost operators. Against this backdrop, companies in Australia are now starting to investigate and adopt additive technology in their operations to complement their existing design and production processes.

To further accelerate this, IMCRC seeks industry feedback on its perception of additive technology and opportunities and challenges for its adoption. We invite you to participate in this Industry Opportunity Survey.
