On November 19, 2015 Toner Plastics President & CEO Steve Graham will address the 3D Printing USA conference, co-located with the IDTechEx show, in Santa Clara, California. Mr. Graham will be presenting, “Challenges in the 3D Desktop Marketplace” at 9:20 AM in Room 210.
Summarily, there are many challenges and opportunities facing machine manufacturers, material suppliers and filament providers. Competition from large corporations and small startups have put tremendous pressure on the market leaders. New materials are available but low volumes make it difficult for compounders and filament producers to make money off their production. Convincing the consumer that a 3D printer can produce something more than just a prototype is a continuing challenge. Mr. Graham will offer his perspective on these dynamic market challenges and how they can be overcome.
