Commercial Companies Increasingly Turning to the Future of 3D Printing
HOUSTON --(Business Wire)--
As Quantum (News - Alert) International Corp. (OTCBB: QUAN) continues exploring the
potential gains of 3D printing, popular U.S. retailers and manufacturers
are increasingly turning to the breakthrough technology that may lead to
the next industrial revolution.
Forbes reports that Massachusetts-based footwear and apparel
company New Balance is using 3D printers to print shoes, while jewelry
makers and clothing designers are creating and producing higher volumes
of merchandise through 3D printing. Shipping company United Parcel
Service (NYSE: UPS) is experiencing immediate success after recently
becoming the first nationwide retailer to offer 3D printing services
in-store, and in June popular office supply store Staples (News - Alert) (NASDAQ: SPLS)
began selling 3D printers online and in-store.
"3D printing is changing the future of manufacturing," Quantum CEO
Robert Federowicz said. "This technological innovation is creating more
jobs in the U.S. and could be the trigger to rejuvenating manufacturing
in the U.S."
According to Wohlers Associates, an industry-specific consulting firm,
the 3D printing market reached $2.2 billion last year, up almost 30
percent from 2011. With early projections for 3D printing reaching $3.1
billion worldwide by 2016 and $5.2 billion by 2020, Quantum is exploring
all avenues into the rapidly gowing sector.
