HP to Announce 3D Printer Status this June

According to PCWorld, at HP’s shareholder meeting, CEO Meg Whitman said HP has cracked the two major problems with 3D printers, super slow printing speed and poor quality. She claimed HP will make “its first big technology announcement” in that field this June.

But PCWorld observed that may not necessarily mean HP will launch products in June, but the OEM will show “what it’s working on and where it’s heading”.

HP will first target the business market, since it speculates “there’s demand for systems that can be used to print prototypes and finished products”.

Market researchers at IDC say 3D printing has moved “well beyond adopters and hobbyists,” predicting the number of 3D printers sold this year will rise 67% compared to 2013.
