Opportunities for Additive Manufacturing in Maritime Industry

Maritime transport is a key node in the global supply chain, responsible for the transport of more than 80% of world trade by volume . Recent events including the COVID-19 pandemic highlight how profoundly supply chain disruptions could impact our daily lives. Alongside this, the climate change agenda is gaining momentum, and this requires concerted action from all stakeholders in the supply chain to work together to address the challenges. It is against this backdrop that the adoption of AM technology in the maritime sector is both timely and opportune. This report will share Maritime Singapore’s additive manufacturing landscape, and seeks to promote greater awareness, learning and opportunities in the maritime industry.
