20% of consumer goods companies will use 3D printing to make customized products by 2021

3D printing may have a significant impact on the consumer products company's supply chain. Especially in categories that meet specific customization needs, reducing inventory, costs and production can be closer to the end customers. This shift to local production for local consumption will force commercial companies to reconsider their business model. For example, a company called race ware in the United States uses 3D printing to make customized bike parts, while a U.S. retail startup produces 3D printed clothing locally. Adidas and other sporting goods manufacturers are around the soles, insoles, 3D printing, and even personalized insole patterns to enhance high-end brands.


In general, 3D printing is unlikely to completely replace mass production in any consumer market. Businesses must learn where and when to make cost-effective trade-offs compared to traditional manufacturing technologies. One of the key determinants of 3D printing in consumer products is the potential large-scale product liability litigation around,each party is responsible for the failure of the product that caused the damage or damage to property. Unlike traditional mass production, the failure of 3D printing products can be a design mistake, a material used to print the object, a 3D printing device, and each part can be owned or produced by a different entity, and the court must decide who is responsible. As a result, the ruling is complicated, and 3D printing products will further blur the line between retailers and manufacturers.
