3D Printing by Pretty Analytics

by | Sep 5, 2018

3D Printing is an incredible tool used in varying projects and even in building parts of planes. At 2017’s The Tech Expo in London, the future of 3D printing was a topic of conversation. It is now seen as a “whatever you can imagine and draw up a CAD design for, we can make”.

Despite its novelty usage in beauty, Pretty Analytics expects to see larger companies invest further in these technologies for product development and streamlined production lines. Lush have invested £13 million in a new centre at their Dorset base to focus on innovation. They are looking to use 3D printing services to produce moulds but this has the potential to extend to products themselves.

The 3D market is finally in its prime, despite being decades old, and will continue to show significant growth as we approach 2022. In particular, 3D printing companies are looking to offer B2B services. For beauty, this could mean personalised products (like Smashbox’s 3D printed limited edition lipsticks) and in person consumer experiences (as offered by PieceMaker’s retail installations).
