3D Printing Innovation Quadrant Q2 2017

Our Innovation Quadrant provides a snapshot of the average funding and average age for the different 3D Printing categories and how they compare with one another.

  • Heavyweights: These categories are comprised of companies that have reached maturity with significant financing.
  • Established: These categories are comprised of companies that have reached maturity with less financing.
  • Disruptors: These categories are comprised of companies that are less mature with significant financing.
  • Pioneers: These categories are comprised of companies that are less mature with earlier stages of financing.

The definitions of the 3D Printing categories are as follows

3D Printer Manufacturers: Companies that manufacture 3D printers and accompanying hardware (e.g. injection heads). There are numerous players in this space from large incumbents, to emerging crowdfunded projects.

3D Printing Applications: Companies that highlight specific use cases and advantages of 3D printing (e.g. mass customization). Emerging trends in the space are health, dental, consumer applications (e.g. custom eyewear), rapid manufacturing.

3D Printing CAD Software: Computer Aided Design software that enables users to upload, create, and modify 3D models. Some of the newer CAD software can be used directly through the browser, reducing friction for e-commerce websites or consumer facing services.

3D Printing Communities: Companies that operate groups and websites that organize multiple users around 3D printing.

3D Printing Marketplaces: Companies that connect two parties around 3D printing products and services. This can include the finalized 3D products (e.g. jewelry, action figures), CAD files, and proposals (e.g. designers looking for bids from manufacturers).

3D Printing Materials: Companies that provide 3D printing materials such as proprietary plastic filament (e.g. acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) or resin.

3D Printing Networks: Companies that provide 3D printing networks via the cloud to enable features such as wireless printing and job reporting.

3D Printing Services: Companies in this category provide 3D printing as an outsourced service for their customers. Services can vary on a spectrum from consulting (e.g. design, create, scan, print) to only managing one aspect of the value chain (e.g. upload your design to print, scanning service only).

3D Scanners: Companies that manufacture scanning equipment used to create digital models of 3D objects. Models can then be reprinted or modified and shared using compatible software. Includes industrial 3D scanners, consumer-focused scanners, and do-it-yourself scanners on crowdfunding websites.

We are currently tracking 379 3D Printing companies in 9 categories across 40 countries, with a total of $1.4 Billion in funding. Click here to learn more about the full 3D Printing market report.
