Additive Manufacturing in Consumer Packaged Goods

Additive Manufacturing in Consumer Packaged Goods

Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) is one of many major industries on which 3D-printing technologies will have a profound effect, especially with the current COVID-19 pandemic and disrupted supply chains worldwide. Here, we present multiple use cases of additive manufacturing (AM) in the CPG industry and how it will impact the supply chain.

Additive Manufacturing in Consumer Packaged Goods

It is predicted that by 2025, 4.2 billion people will be in the consuming class. For the first time, the number of people with discretionary spending will exceed the number of people struggling with basic needs. As a result, there will be a surge in overall CPG market demand.

To embrace this growth, while adapting to increasing consumer demands for personalization and sustainability, CPG manufacturers will need to prepare for long-term disruption, as increased affordability of 3D printers, new and improved manufacturing techniques, an increased range of applicable materials (plastics, metals and ceramics) and the ability to print parts near or within customer’s homes are driving utilization. 

Included in this white paper:

  • Top reasons why AM will disrupt the CPG industry
  • Use cases of AM in 8 different sectors within the CPG vertical
  • How AM will impact the supply chain
  • Potential risks related to file sharing

This report is the third in our four-part series exploring how additive manufacturing and 3D printing are reshaping industries. Other reports in this series cover Aerospace & Defense and Energy Production
