3DP materials are primarily used as raw materials to manufacture any object with the use of a 3D printer. The choice of a 3DP material is quite technical and depends on the 3D printer being used to print objects. 3DP materials exhibit high sensitivity, stability, flexibility, durability, and high strength properties. These properties can be enhanced with an addition of different technologies within the same product to enlarge the characteristics from material to material, or among materials within the same group. These 3DP materials make manufacturing highly familiar and economical. The ability to manufacture a complex design in a short span with low setup costs makes 3D printing efficient in several applications. There are three types of 3DP materials on a major scale, namely, plastics, metals, and ceramics.

The 3DP materials market is driven by the consumer, aerospace, defense, medical and automotive industries and a range of applications, which increases the R&D efforts to make 3DP materials highly resourceful, along with the huge demand from the electronics and bio-medical industry that finds 3DP materials useful in a myriad of applications. Other applications such as food education also help increase the growth of the 3DP materials market. Growing advancements and technological inventions in 3DP materials would be quite effective in future. 3DP materials have been well perceived in various dominant end-user markets in the last few decades and are expected to be used for to print electronics in the near future.

Globally, the North American region dominated the 3DP materials market revenue in 2012. U.S., Japan, China, U.K., and Germany are the major countries with a huge demand for 3DP materials. Asia-Pacific's 3DP materials market for end-use applications is expected to grow at a CAGR of 27.6% from 2013 to 2018, which is far higher than that of North America. Market players concentrate on expanding their geographical reach. Other development strategies adopted by market players are new products launch, agreements & collaborations, and mergers & acquisitions.

The 3DP materials market is contemplating on executing high research activities to create new materials to minimize costs and environmental hazards. One of the major problems is the price range that makes choosing the material very difficult and hard, so as to derive optimal cost effectiveness.

We all know the latest numbers: Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, up 30 percent from last year, and will reach 20.8 billion by 2020. We're rapidly approaching a data production of 40 zettabytes a day – more than we can every physically store, and exabytes and yottabytes are just around the corner. For many that’s a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money – IF it’s ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-ti...
I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
"There's a growing demand from users for things to be faster. When you think about all the transactions or interactions users will have with your product and everything that is between those transactions and interactions - what drives us at Catchpoint Systems is the idea to measure that and to analyze it," explained Leo Vasiliou, Director of Web Performance Engineering at Catchpoint Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York Ci...
As companies gain momentum, the need to maintain high quality products can outstrip their development team’s bandwidth for QA. Building out a large QA team (whether in-house or outsourced) can slow down development and significantly increases costs. This eBook takes QA profiles from 5 companies who successfully scaled up production without building a large QA team and includes: What to consider when choosing CI/CD tools How culture and communication can make or break implementation
Actian Corporation has announced the latest version of the Actian Vector in Hadoop (VectorH) database, generally available at the end of July. VectorH is based on the same query engine that powers Actian Vector, which recently doubled the TPC-H benchmark record for non-clustered systems at the 3000GB scale factor (see tpc.org/3323). The ability to easily ingest information from different data sources and rapidly develop queries to make better business decisions is becoming increasingly importan...
