Additive manufacturing Roadmap: gaps and actions on market driven value chains

Additive manufacturing Roadmap: 	gaps and actions on market driven value chains
Summary
This document aims at presenting the additive manufacturing (AM) implementation map on market driven value chains and constitutes an open working document, developed in the framework of FoFAM Project. This roadmap was designed with the aim to offer a strategy for building the fundamental knowledge and actions necessary to accelerate the design, application and implementation in the market of AM. It is fundamental for the value chain selection to originate from the investigation of sectors with the most potential to contribute to bridging the gap between current knowledge and the successful commercialisation of AM manufactured products or services. The sectors and market addressed in this roadmap have been selected according to the FoFAM project need to be relevant to the techno-logical advancements across Europe and their potential to positively influence societal and economic challenges. Therefore, this selection is based on the evi-dence collated from the sector surveillance activity and the growth and impact analysis performed within the project and the contribution of the experts attending the 1st FoFAM workshop held in Brussels on September 2015. In light of this the following sectors have been identified: • Medical and dental • Aerospace • Automotive • Consumer goods (including electronics) • Industrial equipment These sectors were also the focus of a number of relevant documents i.e. the European Additive Manufacturing Strategic Research Agenda, which highlights priority areas for future development in AM.
