The FoFAM additive manufacturing (AM) roadmap on market driven value chains 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 their relevance to the technological advancements across Europe and their potential to positively influence societal and economic challenges. Therefore, this selection was based on the evidence collated from the sector surveillance activity and the growth and impact analysis performed within the project and the contribution of the experts attending the workshop held in Brussels on September 2015.
In light of this, the following sectors have been identified:
• Medical and dental
• Consumer goods (including electronics)
• Industrial equipment
The roadmap constitutes an open working document, developed in the framework of FoFAM project “Industrial and regional valorization of FoF Additive Manufacturing projects” (Grant agreement no. 636882). Version: December 2016.
