Research and Markets has released a new report covering opportunities for titanium and titanium alloys in additive manufacturing.

‘Titanium is becoming one of three premiere metal group opportunities for additive manufacturing systems of numerous types, sought after primarily for its high strength to weight ratio, biological inertness, and other desirable properties when combined with additive layer manufacturing,’ the report says.

The report presents market forecast data and market analysis for use of titanium in key industries adopting AM, as well as considerations for the future adoption and use in other applications. The primary opportunity factors related to the broader supply chain, primary providers of AM titanium powder and other forms, and analysis of the print technologies and powder production processes.
