Two major metals suppliers — ATI Metals and Arconic — have recently announced their intent to increase their capacity and focus on nickel based additive manufacturing. Meanwhile the market for nickel-based powders used in AM processes will grow from an estimated $28 million worldwide in 2015 to over $520M by 2026, according to a new report from SmarTech Publishing — the leading provider of market intelligence and forecasts for the additive manufacturing/3D printing sector.
This new 85-page report, “Opportunities for Nickel Alloys in Additive Manufacturing – 2017: An Opportunity Analysis and Ten-Year Forecast.” is based on SmarTech Publishing‘s ongoing coverage of the metal additive manufacturing materials sector. (SmarTech Publishing has also produced in-depth market studies covering 3D printed titanium and precious metals.)

Over the last three years, the market for titanium-based additive manufacturing (AM) has seen the biggest growth in strategic development and investment from the broader metal manufacturing community, however SmarTech Publishing believes that nickel-based AM will see a similar growth explosion and increase in interest over the next several years.
About the Report:
Nickel alloys -and especially those commonly referred to as nickel superalloys -first became commercially available for use in various laser based metal AM processes as early as 2007. Today, nickel based superalloys are facing a significant growth opportunity through AM. Current demand for nickel alloys is dominated by superalloys in the Inconel family, thanks to their significant capabilities in applications requiring great hardness, tensile strength, and perhaps most importantly chemical and temperature resistance.
This report provides detailed ten-year nickel alloy consumption forecasts for additive manufacturing in volume (Kg) and value ($ Million) terms for all the major end-user industries. Sectors covered by this report include aerospace, oil and gas, automotive, healthcare, defense, and service bureaus. Also in this report, we analyze future adoption patterns and emerging markets for 3D printed nickel. We also assess this the appropriate print technologies and powder production processes in nickel-based AM.
Finally, this report provides detailed profiles of the leading providers of nickel materials for AM. These profiles include Alcoa/Arconic, AP&C (Arcam), ATI Metals, Carpenter Powder Products, HC Starck, LPW Technology, Praxair Surface Technologies, Puris and Sandvik Materials Technology.
This study pinpoints the opportunities for stakeholders in nickel alloy additive manufacturing -from manufacturers of AM systems with a specific competency for processing nickel based metals, to suppliers of nickel alloy metal powders optimized for AM systems, to end users of metal AM focusing on the many applications for nickel based materials.
