3D Printing is more than technology – Presented by Wolter Kersbergen, PwC Nederland

3D Printing is more than technology – Presented by Wolter Kersbergen, PwC Nederland, at the 3D Printing Electronics Conference, on Jan 23, 2018, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

The industry challenge is how to perceive the added value and implications of additive manufacturing from a business perspective. 3D Printing is more than a technological innovation. It is a technology that has an impact on the entire value chain and that creates new markets and business models. The learning curve for 3D printing is a significant one, but it is being successfully surmounted as early adopters overcome key obstacles, one by one. However, we are still in the early days of this manufacturing industry shift, but innovation is robust, as early adopters know the ultimate market opportunity is massive.
