Suspeito que entre 2013 e 2015 o panorama global da impressão 3D não se tenha alterado assim tanto, embora seja provável que o directório global de empresas ligadas a esta indústria emergente teria de reflectir a explosão na impressão 3D.

Solid overview of 3D printing industry

This book is a really good summary of the overall 3D printing industry. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is it read more of as a report (to be expected with the subject matter) than as a book and is a little dated in 2016.
