Creating Wohlers Report 2022 would have been impossible without our team of 93 experts and 250 contributing organizations from around the world. The publication requires months of coordinated planning and effort among the principal and associate authors, contributors, and many others. A key differentiator of Wohlers Report 2022 is the 27 years of data and relationships used to create the undisputed, industry-leading report.
Securing industry data is one of the most challenging parts of creating the report but also one of the most rewarding. All data received from organizations is confidential. The only exception is unit sales from system manufacturers. Over the history of creating the Wohlers Report, we have gained trust from these organizations, and they know their data is safe. We spend countless hours with the data better understand the additive manufacturing industry. We also use it to create composite totals and trends that are presented in many charts and graphs.
