Since the concept was proposed so far, 3D printing has not only stayed in the scientific research stage, but accelerated into the development process of construction, transportation, education and other industries. Nowadays, from large to housing construction, small to toy denture, 3D printing is changing every aspect of people's production life in a subtle way.
In fact, since 2011, the global 3D printing boom has begun. At present, 3D printing in aerospace, automotive, medical health and other fields of market applications have made some progress. Based on its good development trend, investors from various countries have also entered the 3D printing field, hoping to obtain more lucrative market returns by investing in 3D printing-related technologies and equipment.
3D printing triggers investment boom
In the international political and economic situation is changing, by strengthening the 3D printing, Internet of things, cloud computing and other high-tech research and development and application to enhance the country's comprehensive competitiveness has become the consensus of all countries. As an important part of the world economy, China supports the actual implementation of 3D printing frontier technology, which is of great significance not only for the domestic economy to achieve sustainable development, but also for the stable and healthy operation of the world economy.
In recent years, under the policy guidance and the joint promotion of the industry, China's 3D printing industry financing events have been increasing, and investors are increasingly enthusiastic about 3D printing. According to the foresight industry research institute statistics, since 2014, China's 3D printing industry financing events for a total of 76 times, involving 66 projects. Among them, 24 financing events in 2017, the most in the past five years.
3D printing market investment is becoming increasingly hot, on the one hand, reflecting the capitalists attach great importance to 3D printing, on the other hand, it also shows that 3D printing itself has many advantages attracting attention, the market is still full of expectations for the prospect of diversified applications of 3D printing. In the end, in the actual operation process how to use 3D printing technology, how to ensure that the provision of 3D printing enterprises in the fierce market to achieve profitability, it has become the industry must think and urgent to solve the problem.
How to ensure the profitability of enterprises under high expectations?
While investors have a bright vision of the development prospects of the 3D printing industry, analysts have also conducted in-depth and calm analysis of the actual application of 3D printing results. Although 3D printing technology has almost irreplaceable advantages in the development of precision parts, but the lack of professional technology research and development personnel, 3D printing product costs are high, have caused a certain obstacle to 3D printing enterprises to earn high profits.
So, in the end, what can be done to ensure that 3D printing enterprises to achieve profitability, and have a more stable user base? From the enterprise itself, enterprises need to ensure that the 3D printing products they sell have practicality and innovation. In a 3D printing-related business model, it is important to make sure that your product is sold because it is "innovative", not because it is "3D printed". At the same time, too many people, idle equipment, material waste, is also 3D printing companies in the daily operations of the more prominent several major problems. Solve these problems, will help enterprises to reduce the cost of 3D printing technology research and development and product manufacturing. In addition, the policy to increase support, the relevant departments to accelerate the development of industry labeling, etc., will create a good brand image for 3D printing companies, into the international market to create more possibilities.
New profit model is still being explored. From the overall point of view, although China's 3D printing industry has made great strides in development, but compared with developed countries, there is still a large gap, the printing speed is slow, relatively high cost, key technologies lagging behind, key equipment and core devices rely on imports of the problem is still more prominent. In addition, 3D printing material types are relatively single, material performance is not stable, etc. also limit the comprehensive application of 3D printing in multiple fields.
Subject to these factors, China's 3D printing enterprises have begun to actively explore through technological innovation, talent training and other ways to strengthen their own strength, and by learning from peers and other ways to develop the user needs, with a variety of functions of high-quality products. I believe that in time, 3D printing enterprises will eventually find their own sustainable development path after repeated thinking and active exploration.
In the future, with the continuous progress of technology, a number of enterprises with independent innovation ability and R&D strength will emerge in the fields of auto parts manufacturing, furniture manufacturing, etc. These enterprises will overcome many challenges, push high-quality 3D printing products to the international market, and contribute more power to open foreign markets for Chinese 3D printing products. At that time, 3D printing industry will usher in the most critical burst period.
