Strong Growth Predicted for Global
3D Metal Printing and 3DMP Software Markets

The global 3D-metal-printing market is expected to experience a compounded annual growth rate of 33 percent for 2017-2023. This according to a report by Infinium Global Research, which includes analysis of North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and RoW (rest of world) nations—more than 35 different markets in Southeast Asia, Asia-Pacific, Africa and the Middle East.

Meanwhile, the 3D Printing Software 2018-2028: Technology and Market Analysis report by Research and Markets analyst forecasts that the global market for 3D-metal-printing market will grow at a compounded annual rate of 22 percent and will be worth $966 million by 2028. Driving growth, according to the report, is "the push to develop software that enables design for additive manufacture in order to fully leverage the design freedoms offered by 3D printing."

UM Dedicates 3D Lab
The newly opened University of Miami (UM) College of Engineering-Johnson & Johnson 3D Printing Center of Excellence Collaborative Laboratory will support joint research, materials development and testing of 3D-printing technologies and processes. The 5850-sq.-ft. facility in Coral Gables, FL, includes two 3D metal printers—one using titanium powder and the other, stainless steel. Students will work alongside Johnson & Johnson engineers and scientists.

During the facility's dedication, Joseph Sendra, worldwide vice president of manufacturing engineering and technology at Johnson & Johnson, noted the significant progression of 3D printing over the years. "What's different today is the cyber-physical interconnectivity between man and machine. It's the digital coming together with what's real," said Sendra, who graduated from UM's College of Engineering with a degree in Industrial Engineering in 1993 and is one of three UM alumni who helped bring the new Collaborative Laboratory to the university.
