Argon and its mixtures are expected to continue to dominate the market

- Feb 28, 2018-

M & M believes that argon and its mixed gas are still expected to dominate the entire market. The areas that have seen the largest growth in demand include health care, consumer products, automotive, aerospace and defense, education and research

M & M team expects North America will continue to occupy the largest market share, while the use of gas in Europe will be the fastest growing. On the other hand, the largest share of the 3D printing gas market and the way it will be bottled. This is one of the most commonly used methods for suppliers, which is safer, more economical and easier to deliver.

3D printing is a rapid prototyping technology that builds objects by layer-by-layer printing on the basis of digital model files using bondable materials such as powdered metal or plastic. 3D printing technology can be used in jewelry, footwear, industrial design, construction, engineering and construction (AEC), automotive, aerospace, dental and medical industries, education, GIS, civil engineering, and many others. Often used in the manufacture of molds, industrial design and other fields are used to create models or for the direct manufacture of some products, which means that the technology is gaining popularity. Through the 3D printer can print out food, is the future direction of development of 3D printers.


On January 27, academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering and Director of Expert Committee of China Additive Manufacturing Industry Alliance pointed out that there are six key tasks in additive manufacturing engineering science and technology: additive manufacturing of high-performance alloy components, 3D printing of composite materials and composite structures, micro-nano 3D printing, space 3D printing, 4D printing and biological 3D printing. He hoped that by 2025, 3D printing will have a significant impact on the product development process in the manufacturing industry and in all walks of life. By 2035, China will be able to lead the field of 3D printing and realize engineering applications in large aircraft, heavy launch vehicles and ships. Bio-printing to the forefront of the international community.
