Executive Analysis of 3-D Printing in the Automotive Industry : Simplified Supply Chain Expected to Save $10 Billion Per Year by 2030

This research service analyzes the potential impact of 3-D printing on the global automotive industry. It provides insight into the fundamentals of 3-D printing technologies, as well as their current usage and future applications. While automotive original equipment manufacturers and suppliers are using this technology on a limited scale, 3-D printing is expected to have a greater effect on the supply chain and extend into automotive production. Potential disruptions to conventional production business models are analyzed, as are the challenges that 3-D printing could face. The study’s base year is 2014; the forecast period is from 2015 to 2030.

Executive Summary—Key Findings

3-D printing’s impact on the automotive industry primarily has been in research and development (R&D), but OEMs are turning the corner into commercially printed parts for mainstream production.
