3D Printer Shipments Rise in Q1 2017

New research shows that 3D Printer Shipments are up 16 percent in Q1 2017 as mid-market starts to heat up.

According to Context, the first three months of 2017 saw both worldwide shipments and revenues in the 3D Printer space increase, with activity ramping up in the mid-market. Overall, global 3D printer revenues were up by 4 percent in the first quarter, thanks to stronger demand for high-priced metal-based industrial printers.

“Since the desktop 3D printer market began to emerge as a new category a decade ago, the $5,000 barrier has been used as the general rule-of-thumb dividing point for categories,” said Chris Connery, vice-president of Global Market Research and Analysis, CONTEXT.
