Industry: Manufacturing

Embedded PLM software tools make additive manufacturing systems more attractive to newer users, helping drive continued growth in this nascent market.

Dedham, MA (PRUnderground) August 29th, 2019

New ARC Advisory Group research on the additive manufacturing machinery market reveals that software continues to drive this young, but rapidly growing market.  Generative design, process simulation, and other software enhance engineering capability for product design and quality management capability with respect to manufacturing.  These tools are essential for developing best practices and will enable manufacturing companies to gain more value from their expensive additive manufacturing systems.

“By working with product lifecycle management software suppliers to develop pre-packaged workflows, additive manufacturing equipment suppliers are, in effect, embedding the established expertise of the PLM suppliers into the overall additive manufacturing system.  This makes the systems more attractive to new users to help accelerate overall market growth,” said Will Hastings, Analyst at ARC Advisory Group and key author of ARC’s Additive Manufacturing Machinery Global Market Research report.
