The integration of emergent materials and innovative manufacturing technologies into product supply chains are critically needed to address human and societal needs and to promote sustainable development and economic competitiveness. Among various manufacturing processes, additive manufacturing (AM) has gained significant attention recently. According to UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), additive manufacturing is a game changer and it could revolutionize the manufacturing landscape. The paradigm shift in thinking, where one can turn their design into product on demand, is leading to new business models and challenging traditional models of product development and distribution. In this presentation, an overview of different AM technologies will be provided along with technical challenges and opportunities. Various examples of materials (polymers, ceramics, metals, hybrids, and multi material systems) and structures achieved from utilizing a wide variety of additive manufacturing approaches will be provided. Technical challenges and opportunities will be presented for the utilization of additive manufacturing as a potential disruptor to global supply chains and enabler of sustainable societal development.
