A wide range of industries can benefit from ceramic additive manufacturing (AM). Potential applications of ceramic AM include, but are not limited to, joint prostheses, aircraft engines, ballistic armor, chemical-resistant impellers, and heat exchangers. A ten-fold growth in ceramic additive manufacturing over the next decade has been predicted. The growth can result from replacing traditional manufacturing with additive manufacturing for ceramic parts, and/or replacing metallic or polymeric parts with ceramic parts with the help of geometric and dimensional freedom granted by additive manufacturing.
