Additive Manufacturing in Automotive

The 2020 edition of Fransiscó’s Additive Manufacturing in the Automotive Industry Report

No nonsens, no rose-colored stories, but straight up the way it is.

This research report covers the implementation of Additive Manufacturing in the automotive industry. It covers the new developments relevant to the industry and critically discusses practical examples of AM in metal, polymer, ceramic and electronics. The focus is very much on end-use products for motorsport, mass manufacturing, niche manufacturing and automotive aftermarket.

Since AM requires a different approach to engineering and design, we extensively cover developments in software used for design and engineering of these products as well as the changing development workflow.

This is a must have report for automotive industry professionals such as:

  • CEO’s who require an insight in the possibilities and examples
  • Motorsport engineers, understanding the latest developments in hardware and software
  • Technical Directors of OEM’s, Tier 1, Tier 2 suppliers
  • Engineering Consultants, understand what others are doing in the industry
  • Investment bankers, discover investment opportunities and background info for invested companies
  • Automotive Startups, see who are the relevant people and companies in AM
  • Software companies, those who create software for the additive or automotive industry

The report will be released in 2020, please add your details below if you want to be notified directly once the report becomes available.



The report will be available in digital format, with dedicated watermark. Hardcopy available on request.
