Dublin, Nov. 13, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "3D-Printed Footwear 2020-2030, an Analysis of the Market Potential of 3D Printing in the Footwear Industry" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

This report provides an in-depth analysis of the revenue opportunities offered by the global footwear segment, reflecting the latest advances in the three key segments where 3D printing technologies are impacting footwear production: prototyping, tooling and final parts.

The report also provides the latest ten-year forecasts of footwear parts produced as well as the AM materials consumed to produce them. Other ten-year forecasts in the report are of the AM hardware and printers used for the evolving 3D-printed footwear industry. A breakdown by geography is also included.

While prototyping and tooling continue to be identified as key applications for AM in footwear, the ultimate goal of the industry is to use AM to automate footwear part production. The application analysis in this report thus focuses on the opportunity around final parts, in this report we provide the most accurate data analyses and projections available of the number and revenues associated with 3D printing of midsoles, insoles and uppers for the next ten-year period.

The report also profiles the key manufacturers involved in the 3D-printed footwear revolution including: Carbon, voxeljet, HP, Voxel8, Kings3D, Formlabs, Stratasys, 3D Systems, EOS, Prodways, BASF, ECCO, German RepRap, Adidas, Nike, Reebok, New Balance, Under Armour and Timberland.
