Few Industry Benifit from 3D Print Technology
If you are a manufacturer, you may be wondering by increasing material manufacturing products which can be produced, or competitors will use it to produce anything. If you are not a manufacturer, you might think, except for some future products will be used to purchase 3D printing, 3D printing does not really apply to your business.
However, with regard to 3D printing, you might want a broader perspective, because increasing material manufacturing will achieve breakthroughs in business models and markets, even if unrelated to your company and manufacturing, 3D printing will have a profound impact on you.

The following are only a few have the potential to increase material manufacturing changes in many business areas:

1, shipping
Shipping and logistics is one of the most affected by 3D printing industry. Increasing material manufacturing enables product manufacturers to make production closer to customers in the geographical distance, which will directly affect the major express delivery companies and transportation from any part of the region to international container freight forwarders. You can easily imagine a manner similar to Uber local transport demand, making the "last kilometer" Uber taxi transportation can be like that up for grabs.
2, warehousing and inventory
Demand production increase material manufacturing to avoid a large investment in warehousing and inventory. According to the US Census Bureau data show that only US companies in manufacturing and trade inventories have invested $ 1.8 trillion. Reduce only a few percentage points could lead to billions of dollars in cost reductions. The money saved can expand the sales profits, consumers will benefit from it. At the same time, manufacturers will have to rethink investment in a large warehouse.
3, Service Station
Especially in the consumer goods and IT equipment manufacturers and service providers have made an investment in the service on a large centralized warehouse and other durable goods and high price tag of the product. But with the advent of more personalized and distributed production, centralized service station will be meaningful? When replacement parts can be produced on demand when in the vicinity of the consumer and investment demand for the service station will be less.
4, import / export
Manufacturing site in the vicinity of consumers will reduce the main import and export duties and related costs, but also eliminates the need for transportation costs and related carbon dioxide emissions, for some consumers, the latter may be a big selling point.
Increasing material manufacturing may also reverse the placement of the production facilities where assumptions and cost models. Run a small 3D printing device may be higher than in a low-cost labor in emerging markets to run a factory or outsourced to a large factory which makes more sense in the target market. Or, compared to carried out in the corridors established manufacturing technology, product is then shipped to you are just starting to enter the emerging markets, sales in every market near the production may be a lot more meaningful.
5, innovations and prototypes
According to the PWC report, two-thirds of American manufacturers in the use of 3D printing to produce the final product, more than half of the prototype technology. Therefore, even if a product will never be produced by increasing timber manufacturing, timber manufacturing can still increase dramatically accelerate innovation. It has a certain effect on your R & D function, because in order to speed up the design cycle, research and development function will not be allowed to change the direction of customization, manufactured by the same material as the well-known beyond the start-up companies in the competition provides the opportunity.
