In the past decade, additive manufacturing and printed electronics technologies have expanded rapidly on a global scale. As the additive manufacturing techniques have become more capable and affordable, and able to work with a broader range of materials, the machines are increasingly being used to make advanced products at significantly lower costs and risks. The additive manufacturing industry is populated by a broad family of technologies, and the present paper provides an overview of key additive manufacturing technologies and their impact on materials processing, device applications, and future markets. Our R&D efforts on the development of core technologies for the realization of flexible electronics, and 3D microscale structures are also highlighted.
