“We are thrilled to be fulfilling this commercial order, especially given the fact that it came via our partner Aubert & Duval” said Mr. Massimo Dattilo, VP, PyroGenesis Additive. “According to Grand View Research, the global 3D printing market was valued at USD 13.84 billion in 2021 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 20.8% from 2022 to 2030. Given the sheer size of this market and our unique manufacturing process, we believe we are well positioned to capture a significant share of the overall titanium powder market. This order is both an important commercial milestone, as well as further validation of our process and ability to supply some of the highest quality powder produced to the AM industry using our NexGen™ plasma atomization process. We are making larger commercial batches now, not just sample batches, and additional batches are underway. For comparison, previous sample batches were a couple of hundred grams, whereas this production batch is 100kg. It’s an exciting time.”
