Introduction

Contributing to Singapore’s Manufacturing Future through AM

Supported by the National Research Foundation and in partnership with the SPRING Singapore and Economic Development Board, NAMIC is organising a series of Additive Manufacturing (AM) Summits targeting the following core industries:

  •  Precision Engineering
  •  Aerospace/ Defence
  •  Health Science
  •  Emerging Applications
  •  Marine Offshore/ Oil & Gas

Intended to bring together high-level decision makers, AM practitioners, regulators and investors. The summits aim to bring to the forefront latest AM developments from around the world, as well as help make sense of how Singapore will play in this “new industrial revolution”.

Aerospace Summit

“The global aerospace and defense (A&D) is likely to experience stronger growth in 2017. Following multiple years of positive, but subdued rate of growth, The report forecasts the sector revenues will likely grow by about 2.0 percent in 2017.” – Deloitte, 2017 Riding on the growth, is the additive manufacturing industry which has evolved into one of the key technology enablers for Industry 4.0 – the next digital industrial age. From 2016 to 2022, the-global 3D printing market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 28.5% to USD 30.19 bilIion (Wohler’s Report 2016). One of the key sectors, among many others, being impacted by additive manufacturing and its advantages is the aerospace industry. NAMIC AM Series’ Aerospace Summit on 6 April 2017 will bring along together 150 high-level decision makers, from the public and private sectors to discuss the latest developments and explore collaboration opportunities towards seeding Additive Manufacturing capabilities in the Aerospace value chain.
