Additive Manufacturing (AM) in the Global Oil & Gas Industry 2018-2029: Focus on PBF, DED & WAAM Processes

/EIN News/ -- Dublin, Nov. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Additive Manufacturing in the Oil and Gas Sector 2018-2029" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

This report covers the established areas of AM in oil and gas focusing primarily on current adoption of metal AM technologies such as metal powder bed fusion (PBF) and directed energy deposition (DED) including Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) processes. These technologies are analyzed in-depth, along with material demand for all supported metal alloys (today and in the future) and part production capabilities with a particular focus on the more short-term opportunity presented by on-demand spare parts.

Additive manufacturing (AM) in the oil and gas industry could have an impact unparalleled by any other industrial sectors based on complex engineering. However, only until very recently have the capabilities of additive manufacturing systems evolved to meet the oil and industry's stringent demands in terms of reliability, productivity and size capabilities.

This report builds on the analyst's ongoing research into the oil and gas sector to accurately quantify the revenue opportunity and assesses the levels AM adoption in this field, based on AM hardware, materials services and parts produced through 2029. These include short- medium and long terms opportunities for the upstream, midstream and downstream oil and gas industry segments.

Based on a unique and profound understanding of available AM technologies, materials and applications, the report then goes on to assess the overall oil and gas AM opportunity, including upcoming metal, polymer, composite and ceramic AM processes and materials that are going to gain wider adoption in the oil and gas industry during the 10-year forecast period examined. These include leading polymer technologies for prototyping, modeling, casting, and final parts, as well as high-throughput metal AM technologies such as new bound metal/binder jetting and supersonic acceleration/cold blown powder processes.
