Transcript

  • 1. Say Goodbye to “Made in China” This transformative technology holds the potential to completely revolutionize manufacturing – and perhaps even take China down in the process.
  • 2. It Seems Like Every Decade… A technology comes along and fundamentally changes the world • The 1980s: The PC made its way into households. • The 1990s: The Internet became all the rage. • The 2000s: The early days of the smartphone revolution began.
  • 3. 2014: The Next Technology Revolution 3-D Printing • 3-D printing generated only $3 billion in revenues worldwide in 2013 • Many believe the 3-D printing industry will grow by orders of magnitude in the future. • There’s still a tremendous investment opportunity for growth.
  • 4. What Is 3-D Printing? Also known as “additive manufacturing” • Objects are built layer by layer. • Differs from traditional manufacturing, which often starts with a solid block of material that’s shaved down into its final form. • Objects can be 3-D printed in a range of materials, including plastic, glass, sand, composite, and metal.
  • 5. What Makes 3-D Printing So Great? The benefits can be profound for manufacturers • Faster product development times • No tooling required • Nearly unlimited complexity • Potential to make fundamentally better products over conventional manufacturing methods
  • 6. Organizations Are Taking Notice General Electric, Boeing, Airbus, Rolls Royce, Ford, Nike, Victoria’s Secret, and even the U.S. Air Force have adopted 3-D printing.
  • 7. Case Study: General Electric 3-D printing jet engine fuel nozzles • GE plans to 3-D metal print 45,000 fuel nozzles a year for its upcoming Leap jet engine. An industry first! • GE can consolidate a conventionally manufactured fuel nozzle from 20 parts into one 3-D printed part. • The benefits are so significant that GE wants 3-D printing to “touch” 50% of its products in 20 years in some way, whether it’s the product itself, the tools to make the product, or early iterations of the product.
  • 8. Case Study: General Electric (cont’d) • GE will likely have to invest billions to grow its 3-D printing and advanced manufacturing capacity to support 50% of its products being “touched” by 3-D printing in next 20 years. • If other manufacturers follow suit, it could lead to significant 3-D printing spending in the future. • Continued worldwide adoption of 3-D printing could promote a resurgence in localized manufacturing and cut China’s manufacturing base out of the equation.
  • 9. Nearing a Tipping Point? Growth rates have accelerated 25-year average: 27% per year, compounded Last three years: 32.3% per year, compounded What this means: 3-D printing technology could be hitting an inflection point in terms of adoption.
  • 10. Tremendous Untapped Potential “[3-D printing] continues to offer tremendous untapped potential, especially in custom and short-run part production” - Wohlers Associates, a leading 3-D printing insights firm.
  • 11. Tremendous Untapped Potential • In 2013, 3-D printing generated just north of $3 billion in worldwide revenues. • If 3-D printing can grow to represent just 1% of the $10.5 trillion worldwide manufacturing base, it would become a $105 billion a year industry!
  • 12. The Early Innings It’s not too late to invest in 3-D printing stocks!
