“Although additive manufacturing equipment and materials were developed early, it has not developed so rapidly until the decline in production costs and the increase in demand recent years. According to statistics, the scale of Chinese 3D printing market in 2019 is 14 billion RMB (about 2.22 billion USD) , while by 2023, it is expected to reach 35.118 billion RMB（about 5.57 billion USD）, with a compound annual growth rate of 25.8%.
KINGS 3D is an enterprise with a full industry chain and one of the few companies in the industry whose main business includes 3D equipment, materials and printing services. It not only occupies a large market share in SLA resin printing, but also has a layout in metal printing. The competition barriers built by KINGS 3D make it have a greater advantage in the market.
The management team of KINGS 3D is excellent, young and promising, also with rich industry experience and keen market insight. Kings is able to clarify the company’s development direction at an early stage according to market development trends, actively deploy and develop new products to respond to new market needs and increase the company competitiveness.”

"With the continuous advancement of additive manufacturing technology, the decline of printing costs, and the increasing availability of printing materials, the advantages of additive manufacturing over traditional subtractive manufacturing have gradually manifested. Now It is widely accepted in many industries, and the production scenarios are gradually shifting from prototype design to direct manufacturing.
China is the world’s largest manufacturing country. With the rapid development of the additive manufacturing market, China is expected to create a number of world-class additive manufacturing companies. As China’s leading industrial-grade non-metallic 3D printing brand, KINGS 3D is not only occupying a leading edge in different industries but also one of the fastest growing industrial-grade 3D printing companies in China in recent years.

“ The research and application of 3D printing has transformed the way of manufacturing , and its digititalized manufacturing methods have great impact on manufacturing technology. It truly realizes the one-time manufacturing from digital design model to product as a whole, greatly improving design and manufacturing efficiency and simplifying the production process . After decades of ups and downs, it has moved from the stage of small scales applications to an important period of indispensable industrial production.
Additive manufacturing has experienced the industry's initial development to technological breakthroughs one by one, and the application has risen from a trend to fully developed. In this process, KINGS 3D polished and precipitated its 3D printing solutions, which is deeply integrated with industrial design and production.
We are fortunate to stand with our friends from KINGS 3D to discuss technological development, digital application challenges, how to improve manufacturing efficiency and process stability, and empower new technological capabilities for personalized manufacturing. It is worth looking forward to and imaginative to work with such a team of craftsmen who are steadfast, diligent and confident in the future to commit to the development of the 3D printing industry.”
