  3. > Additive Manufacturing in Space and Defense Aerospace Markets

The defense aerospace and space industries are increasingly presenting their own unique high-value market opportunities for additive manufacturing separate from those in the commercial and general aviation industries.

This report identifies and quantifies these opportunities and discusses the best product/market strategies for exploiting them. The coverage includes space vehicles, satellites, military aircraft, missile systems, and UAVs. SmarTech believes that this is only report currently available to explore the unique challenges, requirements, and potential benefits of 3D printing in emerging space and defense applications.

It is the also the only study to provide granular ten-year forecasts of additive manufacturing opportunities for space and defense aerospace and these forecasts include not only revenues and installed bases for various 3D print technologies, but also part counts for prototypes, tooling, and final-use components for each application covered.

In addition, this report provides analysis of the entire value chain for additive manufacturing in space and defense aerospace markets, with a discussion of the primary benefits that 3D printing can offer each application area.
