This report identifies and quantifies the opportunities for 3D printing (3DP) in the commercial and general aviation industries. It covers jetliners, helicopters, and smaller civilian aircraft and analyzes 3DP’s influence on aerospace manufacturing--and vice versa. SmarTech believes this unique study will be required reading for marketing, business development and production managers in both the aerospace and 3DP sectors:

The commercial aerospace industry is on the cusp of a manufacturing revolution utilizing metal and polymer 3DP technologies to produce aircraft engine components and a variety of structural and cabin components.

The number of projects in pre-production and flight testing for aircraft engine manufacturing has grown significantly in just twelve months. GE is no longer the only supplier ramping up for 3DP production. Pratt & Whitney, MTU, Airbus, and others are all integrating final parts into aircraft in volumes that range from hundreds, to thousands, and beyond.

Commercial aerospace is the single best example of advancing 3DP as a manufacturing technology rather than just a rapid prototyping tool.

3D printing as a manufacturing technology in aerospace is manifesting itself in several areas, including spare parts manufacturing, experimental flight test parts, remanufacture and repair of existing craft, and on-demand part production of serial components. These represent four of the eight domains of 3D printing utilized in the commercial aerospace industry as identified in this report.

A special feature of the report forms the second chapter of the report, "Interfacing with the Aerospace Industry" in which SmarTech presents input gathered from key aerospace industry professionals over the last 12 months. This chapter details how 3D printing is perceived by various aerospace companies, including their views on key challenges to adoption.

The report the most in-depth market data and forecasts available for 3DP in commercial aerospace market. In this report SmarTech applies its now standard 3DP market models to the study of aerospace, to provide credible 10-year forecasts on various 3DP markets in commercial aerospace. These forecasts include several hardware categories, print materials, projections for parts printed by aerospace application type, and more.

This report is the companion volume to Additive Manufacturing in Space and Defense Aerospace Markets.
