3D printing technology has indeed evolved over the past 30 years, but this alone does not explain the recent uptick in adoption. Other factors, including public awareness and organizational readiness are also at play. This article explores the drivers of 3D printing's adoption in an industrial context and offers suggestions for managers seeking to leverage the technology's capabilities.

40% of the respondents were unfamiliar with the technology ‘beyond press coverage,’ and an additional 12% of respondents indicated that AM ‘might be relevant but [they] needed to learn more about the technology.’ In essence, more than half of the market has yet to grasp AM’s applications.

Initially, these new competitors will be niche players, operating where consumers are willing to pay a premium for a bespoke design, complex geometry, or rapid delivery. Over the longer term, however, they could transform industries in unexpected ways, moving the source of competitive advantage away from the ability to manufacture in high volumes at low cost and toward other areas of the value chain, such as design or even the ownership of customer networks.

At first it might seem that 3D printing would have little effect on commercial real estate, but upon closer inspection, it is clear that digital manufacturing technologies (of which 3D printing is a prime example) could indeed leave its mark on real estate. This article explores ways in which commercial real estate could need to respond to emerging manufacturing technologies.

Over the next decade, retail will almost certainly see some form of in-store production. A net reduction in overall space requirements is likely, as businesses use available space for production rather than inventory, but the effect will be gradual. Retail shops outfitted with printers could experience a tailwind of increased footfall as showrooms become increasingly important for printing of customised products. In fact, retailers are already using in-store printing to create novel shopper experiences, with customers working alongside shopkeepers to customise products.
