How 3D Printing Can Change The World

The future of manufacturing is 3D.

From automobiles to consumer goods and construction to healthcare, industries have started adopting 3D printing that allows to build physical objects from digital designs using polymers, metals, and ceramics.

The global 3D printing market stood at $4.1 billion in 2014, according to a report published by Allied Market Research. It’s expected to grow at an annualised rate of 21.8 percent to reach $44.4 billion by 2025.

“3D printing is not here to disrupt or change the old ways of doing something, but it is adding a new capability to what was earlier possible in the world of manufacturing products,” said Tanmay Shah of Imaginarium India, which claims to be India’s largest centre for 3D-printed products.

The technology can help build a house in under 24 hours, build factories in the space or combine all your prescribed medicines into one pill, he said, citing uses of 3D printing. Even human organs can be printed.
