A real-time, 21-month review of 3D printing companies’ valuations

Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

I’ve been reviewing our weekly 3D print company valuation data, and have some interesting results to report.

We began reporting the valuations (the “cost to buy the whole company”) back in March of 2021. Each week we publish a report on that week’s changes through a leaderboard. In the beginning, we tracked only seven companies, but now we track 25, although some have literally disappeared.

Note that we can only calculate the valuation of publicly traded companies because they are required to post financial information, whereas privately held companies do not. We just can’t know about those private companies, like Formlabs, Carbon, EOS, or several others. Our list also excludes giant companies of which 3D printing is only a sideline, like HP and Xerox, because they’d mess up the chart terribly and their shifts may have nothing to do with 3D printing.

As last year ended I reviewed the data up to the end of December 2022 and found some interesting results.

One result is an animation of the entire sequence of valuations for the past 21 months, and it’s fascinating to watch. You can see the full video here.

Fabbaloo's founder Kerry Stevenson has been fascinated with 3D printing after seeing the idea introduced by Star Trek decades ago - and now it is a reality. He's been writing Fabbaloo since it began in October 2007 under the gradually-becoming-less-mysterious pseudonym "General Fabb".
