Technology adoption pendulum to swing back to enterprise: Deloitte

Brian Karlovsky | Jan. 22, 2015
Companies, not consumers, set to lead the way in adoption of wearables, drones, 3D printing and the the Internet of Things.

Deloitte estimates about 80 per cent of the value of all 3D printers globally will be for companies instead of consumers, meaning the real revolution will be in the enterprise market. Moth said he anticipated that rapid prototyping and 3D objects that fitted into existing manufacturing processes and techniques, such as tooling or creating a mold, would represent 90 per cent of the objects made by the enterprise.

"3D printing will also boost the startup market given this ability to facilitate cost effective tailored prototypes."
