3D printers might sell. Really

Gartner has forecast that worldwide shipments of 3D printers will more than double in 2016.

455,772 units are expected to ship this year, a whopping 108 per cent of the 219,168 units shipped in 2015. despite slowing growth rates, more than 6,700,000 are expected to be shipped in 2020.

"Once a niche market, 3D printing has continued its rapid transformation into a broad-based mainstream technology embraced by consumers and enterprises around the world," said Pete Basiliere, research vice president at Gartner. ®
