3D Printing Filaments

Although it started almost as a game, today 3D printing filaments manufacturing for both industrial and low-cost 3D printers is an industry.


So much so that even giants such as SABIC, Verbatim (Mitsubishi) and others have begun to target it. Other large companies such as Covestro (Bayer) and Eastman Chemical partnered directly with companies operating in the low-cost 3D printing arena. NatureWorks, the largest producer of PLA in the world, has begun focusing specifically on 3D printing.


As 3D printing expands it also evolves more and more into a true industrial production newer companies continue to evolve their offer and technological capabilities. Each company focuses on specific material and specific customer segments (Industrial, Professional, Consumers, Makers and Education) and all agree that explosive growth is on the horizon.


Let’s see how far this industry can go.
