By Business Wire News


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Titanium Opportunities in Additive Manufacturing” report to their offering.

This new specialty market report is the first of its kind to explore opportunities and considerations specifically for titanium and titanium alloys. 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.

As a specialty study in a specific material, this report presents both market forecast data as well as critical 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 all combine to help business development and strategy professionals determine how to focus their efforts in titanium powder, parts, and print technologies.

Titanium is increasingly sought after in AM for its high strength to weight ratio, biological inertness, and other desirable properties. This report provides ten-year forecasts – in US$ Millions and Kilograms – for titanium in the following sectors, aerospace, automotive, jewelry, dental, medical, service bureaus, and other adopting industries’. Other applications discussed include heavy equipment, marine, energy, and consumer products. The author’s projections also provide breakouts by Ti6Al4V and other titanium alloys.
