Between April and May 2021, CECIMO, the European Association of the Machine Tool Industries and related Manufacturing Technologies, organized the second round of its European Additive Manufacturing Survey, which aims to assess key market trends in the Additive Manufacturing (AM) sector.

Launched by CECIMO, in cooperation with national associations, this survey aims to collect quality data directly from the industry and help companies outline a European overview of the main trends in the AM market. During this second round, CECIMO received a total of 59 replies from the national associations that are taking part in this project.

It is the second time CECIMO conducts this survey to collect data directly from 3D printing companies that operate in the participating countries. It is a six-month survey that will help the industry record trend indications for key business areas, such as domestic business, AM exports, orders by type of material, client industry demand and trend investment. Due to its comprehensive structure, the survey will help shed light on the European AM business cycle and the overall industry players’ expectations with regards to production, demand, and investment, among other relevant aspects of the market.
