HP Inc., one of the leading players in the 3D printing industry has been seriously looking at partnering with the Indian government to push its 3D printing solutions in the domestic manufacturing and prototyping market of India.
Speaking about the plans of the company to advance AM in the country, Ramon Pastor, Vice President and General Manager of Multi Jet Fusion at HP said, “We are looking to collaborate with the Indian government to push our 3D printing offerings to various stakeholders, especially manufacturers in automotive, aerospace and health care as well as designers involved with prototyping and materials.”
“We need to collaborate with industry partners and the government to showcase the Additive Manufacturing (AM) technology and create awareness in the country that has immense potential,” added Pastor.

The aim to partner could be attributed to the growing manufacturing sector of the country. For example, according to the Indian Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), the manufacturing sector was worth $311.6 billion in 2016-2017 and has the potential to reach $1 trillion by 2025. When it comes to 3D printing sector of India, the 3D printing industry of India is poised to grow big in the coming years.
According to a report by Frost & Sullivan, the Indian 3D printing industry is set to reach $79 million by 2022. India is also being considered a key player in terms of large scale adoption of additive manufacturing in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region. It has also been pegged to become a major beneficiary of the additive manufacturing industry of the APAC region.
To take advantage of the burgeoning 3D printing industry of India, HP brought its revolutionary Multi-Jet Fusion 3D printing technology in January in India and appointed Mumbai-based Imaginarium, Noida-based Adroitec and Chennai-based Redington as their certified resellers in the country who have also deployed the MJF printing solutions to serve their customers across industries.
As certified HP 3D printing resellers, these companies are also offering their expertise and helping customers to deploy HP’s Multi Jet Fusion Technology. The innovative partners are also providing value added services such as enablement of new applications and industry-leading response time and service quality.
HP’s Multi-Jet Fusion 3D Printing solution is a production-ready commercial 3D printing system known to deliver high quality physical parts at a faster rate and half the cost of existing 3D printing systems.
Offering more details about the demand and supply of the 3D printing solutions in the country, Pastor adds, “The demand and the capacity or supply for 3D printing solutions is almost running parallel in the country.“The India situation is much more similar to some of the European countries where the demand for the 3D printing solutions and the offerings are running parallel and some states are extending great support to us on this.”
