Note: The following was excerpted from Wohlers Report 2018.

Independent service providers worldwide generated an estimated $2.955 billion from the sale of parts produced by additive manufacturing systems in 2017. This is up 36% from the $2.173 billion reported for 2016.

The previous graph shows service provider revenue estimates (in millions of dollars) for the past 24 years. The bars represent only primary revenues, which are from parts produced on AM equipment. They do not include revenues from secondary processes, such as tooling, parts made from this tooling, castings, or CNC-machined parts. Also, they exclude design, engineering, CAD/CAM/CAE, and all other services.
