Here are 3 Such trends:
3D printing becomes industrial strength.
Once reserved for prototypes and toys, 3D printing will become industrial strength. There are aircrafts that already contain some 3D-printed components. The technology will also start to be adopted for the direct manufacture of specialist components in industries like defense and automotive. Overall, the number of 3D printed parts in planes, cars and even appliances will increase without you knowing.
3D printing starts saving lives.
3D-printed medical implants will improve the quality of life of someone close to you. Because 3D printing allows products to be custom-matched to an exact body shape, it is being used today for making better titanium bone implants, prosthetic limbs and orthodontic devices. 3D Printing could reduce if not eliminate the organ donor shortage.
Customization becomes the norm.
3D Printing grows, and customers get more and more demanding!
