Global Precious Metals Additive Manufacturing Markets, 2018-2028 - Jewelry Driving the Precious Metals AM Market

Dublin, June 06, Jun 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) --

The "Markets for Precious Metals in Additive Manufacturing: 2018-2028" report has been added to's offering.

In this new report, Markets for Precious Metals in Additive Manufacturing: 2018-2028, the researcher maps and quantifies the use of precious metals in additive manufacturing. The report differentiates between alloys used as atomized powders for powder bed fusion processes and those (mainly silver) used as nanoparticle inks for 3D printed electronics. The report further breaks down its analysis and forecasts for specific alloys including gold, platinum silver, palladium, rhodium, ruthenium and other rare metals and their relative applications.

The analyses of precious metals in additive manufacturing focuses on major industrial segments such as Jewelry, Dentistry, Aerospace and Electronics that are driving adoption of AM and precious metal AM (PMAM) for high performance and high-profile applications. The report accurately describes and quantities the primary revenue opportunity segments both in terms of materials and applications.

By conducting interviews with major stakeholders and adopters in the global markets for AM and precious metal powder production, SmarTech Publishing goes on to break down major revenue opportunity segments for AM (materials, hardware and service) while conducting further analysis into the value of precious metal AM part production both for industrial manufacturing and electronics manufacturing. This revenue opportunity segment is expected to drive the market for AM of precious metals to unprecedented heights over the next 10-year period.
