Abstract

Additive manufacturing industry has experienced tremendous growth in the last decade. This paper aims to address the lack of insights and systematic research by investigating opportunity and impact of potential economic benefits of AM. Our results show that the number of publications in the AM research has increased exponentially since 2009. The papers have been identified into five themes: applications, country, opportunity, economics and social. Our results show that there are an increasing number of papers that investigate economic and social benefits of AM.
