According to experts, by 2025, 85% of all OEMs will use On-Demand Manufacturing(ODM) Services.
The trends of this growth have already started showing up in the form of the largest transactions that have taken place in the manufacturing industry.
Protolabs, a digital manufacturing giant, has entered into an agreement to acquire 3D Hubs, yet another leading online manufacturing platform that has a global network of about 240 manufacturing partners, resulting in what the manufacturing provider believes will be “the world’s most comprehensive digital manufacturing offer for custom parts.”
Joining hands with the right kinds of partners will help reap several internal benefits such as increased design complexity, tighter tolerances, additional finishing options, and external conveniences such as varied materials, and a wider range of pricing and lead-time options.
In India as well, this space has been growing rapidly and the front runner here happens to be 3D Usher. In what may be seen as an encouraging development for the industry, 3D Usher is poised to
