India must tap its engineers to achieve 'smart' manufacturing: Global CEOs

February 06, 2018

As 3D printing appears set to transform the manufacturing sector globally, including in India, top global executives have emphasised that the country should invest in its talented pool of engineers to achieve "smart" manufacturing goals.

While the global 3D printing industry is pegged at somewhere between $4 billion and $5 billion, market intelligence solutions firm 6Wresearch predicts that India's 3D printer prototyping and materials market will hit $79 million by 2021.

Manufacturing today is a $12 trillion market globally which 3D printing -- or Additive Manufacturing (AM) -- is set to disrupt, and India has a bigger role to play, the corporate honchos say.

"India produces the best engineers in the world. When it comes to manufacturing, the country should tap into its talent pool to help it move towards 'smart' manufacturing. Not just 3D printing, adopting automation and robotics will further boost India's manufacturing dreams," Gian Paolo Bassi, CEO at SOLIDWORKS, Dassault Systemes, told IANS.

He, however, lamented the lack of global talent when it comes to design for 3D printing.

"In order to succeed, we need to fast prepare a qualified workforce and research institutes, universities and colleges globally must nurture the talent towards New Age technologies," added Bassi, who spearheads the development of future product and technology strategies designed for the desktop and the Cloud.
