3D Printers To Consider

The 3D printer industry is surging as the market transitions away from targeting consumers and toward more-profitable use cases in manufacturing, product design and life sciences, IDC reported this month. Global revenues for 3D printers are expected to more than double in the coming years, from a projected $15.9 billion in 2016 to $35.4 billion in 2020, according to the forecast from IDC.

In terms of the 3D printer makers that are driving this growth, three vendors dominated in the second quarter of 2016, as measured by sales through technology distributors. Those manufacturers are MakerBot, Dremel and 3D Systems, according to NPD Group, a Port Washington, N.Y.-based market research firm. (Vendors including HP do not appear in the ranking due to lack of presence in the distribution channel for 3D printers.)

Following are the eight top-selling 3D printer models in the second quarter, based on NPD Group's data from major technology distributors, leading up to the best-selling 3D printer. NPD Group's DistributorTrack sales database is comprised primarily of U.S. Global Technology Distribution Council members.
