Last week I wrote a post on the emergence of 3D printing. As promised, I’m following up with three recommendations for you of stocks to watch in the sector.
3D printing is shaping the future, as it is applied to more and more industries around the world every day. From aerospace, to automotive, to education, to medical, 3D printing is capable of revolutionizing every industry in some way.
Here are three companies that stand to benefit from this trend:
Stratasys (NASDAQ: SSYS): The global leader in 3D printing and additive solutions. Stratasys has a market cap of $1.5 billion, and currently trades at $28.08 a share.
3D Systems (NYSE: DDD): Designs, develops, markets, and services rapid 3D printing, prototyping and manufacturing systems and related products and materials. 3D Systems has a market cap of $1.55 billion and currently trades at $13.65 a share.
Proto Labs (NYSE: PRLB): Proto Labs does rapid prototyping and low volume manufacturing via injection modeling, CNC machining and 3D printing. Proto Labs has a market cap of $3 billion and currently trades for $111.40.
Each of these companies will do very well if the projections for 3D printing manufacturing come to fruition and the industry sees a tenfold increase in demand.
