Dublin, Oct. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "3D Printing: Material and Equipment Opportunities, Trends, and Markets" report from The Information Network has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. There is a wide variety of processes and sub-processes used by industrial manufacturers to build metal parts. Metal additive manufacturing is likely to compete directly with expensive, low volume and high quality processes such as CNC machining and metal metallurgy. 3D printing manufacturers not likely to be successful targeting replacing high volume manufacturing which utilizes processes such as investment casting that benefit greatly from economies of scale. Direct product manufacturing using printing can reduce the number of steps required for parts production, transportation, assembly, and distribution, and it can reduce the amount of material wasted in comparison with subtractive methods. The importance of 3D printing goes beyond prototyping; it can change how various parts of the supply chain interact today. In metal 3D printing, it is crucial to differentiate between two main types of technologies: "Pure part" printing and "green part" processes. Generally, "green part" printers, produced by relatively newer entrants such as HPQ and Desktop Metal, are cheaper and faster with higher material attach rate, making them more suitable for higher volume production of non-critical parts, such as industrial parts and auto accessories. However, "pure part" AM machines benefit from higher precision of build and produce parts at better repeatability, which is important in producing critical parts in highly regulated industries such as Auto, Heavy vehicles, Medical Devices, Aerospace, and Defense. This report provides a deep dive overview of the additive manufacturing (AM, also known as 3D printing) market. Ever since additive manufacturing was referred to as the third industrial revolution, a key focus for the industry was about moving from prototyping and short run manufacturing into higher volume production. While not likely to replace traditional high-volume manufacturing techniques such as metal casting given the latter's benefits from scale, metal AM is highly suitable for a variety of applications including: replacement parts, prosthetic implants, custom auto and aerospace parts, among others. 3D printing industry remains highly fragmented across different printers, materials, and software. This fragmentation in the 3D industry will be a catalyst for growth, as no single company controls the majority of the market. This report focuses on the key printer and material technologies and outlines the various leaders across these technologies.

(Bloomberg) -- The BinDawood family’s fortune soared after shares in their eponymous Saudi Arabian grocery business rose by 10% on their first day of trading.Members of the family own a 67% stake worth about $2.2 billion in BinDawood Holding Co., according to Bloomberg calculations based on the IPO prospectus. They also raised about $500 million from the initial public offering.BinDawood is one of the biggest grocery chains in Saudi Arabia, operating upmarket stores under the Danube brand and mass-market stores under the BinDawood brand. It was founded in 1984 by Khaled Dawood Ibrahim BinDawood and has since grown to operate more than 70 stores.The stock surged on Wednesday in Riyadh, rising to 105.60 riyals from the 96 riyals ($25.60) offer price. The shares had already been priced at the top end of the marketed range after the deal was about 50 times oversubscribed and the IPO received $29 billion in bids.BinDawood had been been one of the few Saudi grocery chains to invest in its online platform and delivery ahead of the coronavirus outbreak, said Walid Majdalani, head of private equity for the Middle East at Investcorp, which invested in the company in 2016.‘Hit the Jackpot’“It was an untapped market and BinDawood really hit the jackpot,” Majdalani said. Investcorp raised about $41 million selling some of its shares in the IPO, with the rest of its holding now worth $180 million at the end of the first day’s trading.At least nine members of the BinDawood family hold about two thirds of the company’s shares through Akasiya Star Trading Co. BinDawood said its first-half profit rose by 82% as consumers flocked to its online and delivery channels amid a lockdown to prevent the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.The IPO also comes amid a boom in online retail spending and as Saudi Arabia sees more companies listing on the local exchange, known as Tadawul. A sub-index tracking food and staples retailers in the kingdom is up 71% this year, compared to a 1.9% gain for the benchmark Tadawul All Share index.BinDawood’s offering of a 20% stake was the second-biggest IPO in Saudi Arabia this year, after Dr. Sulaiman Al Habib Medical Services Group’s listing in March. That stock has nearly doubled since it started trading.Al Rajhi Capital expects the shares to climb about 20% from the current level, according to a report on Wednesday that initiated coverage with an overweight rating and a target price of 126 riyals.“We expect the company’s e-commerce to drive like-for-like growth in the future,” Al Rajhi analyst Pratik Khandelwal said in the note. He expects BinDawood to open three stores per year between 2021 to 2024, with online sales driving growth. “This should also support the gross margins going forward,” according to Khandelwal.(Updates performance in third paragraph, adds comments starting in fifth paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

Flagship 2.76-million-square-foot facility will employ 300+, grow tomatoes to disrupt market dominated by imports. Ground already broken on second facility.MOREHEAD, Ky., Oct. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AppHarvest today announced the opening of its 2.76-million-square-foot high-tech greenhouse in Appalachia. The Morehead, KY facility is the first of a series designed to redefine American agriculture by growing non-GMO, chemical pesticide-free fruits and vegetables closer to the people eating them.The company and its mission represent a stark change to the existing American food system, which is increasingly reliant on imports. AppHarvest’s first harvest of tomatoes is expected to be available in early 2021 at leading grocers and restaurants. Tomatoes are AppHarvest’s first crop as more than 60% of America’s fresh tomatoes were imported in 2019, an increase of almost 50% over the past decade.Today’s opening follows an announcement yesterday that AppHarvest has already broken ground on a second controlled environment agriculture facility. Located in nearby Richmond, KY, the facility will be comparable in size to the company’s flagship operation in Morehead, KY.AppHarvest, which is both a legal public benefit corporation and certified B Corp, expects to create more than 300 jobs at its Morehead farm in Appalachia, which has long trailed national employment trends due to the decline of the coal industry. In just over two years, AppHarvest attracted more than $150 million in investment into the region and announced on September 29 a definitive agreement for a business combination with publicly traded special purpose acquisition company Novus Capital Corporation (Nasdaq: NOVS). The combination, which is expected to close late in the fourth quarter of 2020 or early in the first quarter of 2021, will provide $475 million of gross proceeds to the company, including $375 million fully committed common stock PIPE at $10.00 per share anchored by existing and new investors – including Fidelity Management & Research Company, LLC, Inclusive Capital, and Novus Capital Corporation.“It’s far past time for American agriculture to change,” said AppHarvest Founder & CEO Jonathan Webb. “The pandemic has revealed just how fragile our food system is, and we’re working at the forefront of changing so much that’s wrong with the status quo.”The plethora of ways that AppHarvest is different than traditional agriculture includes the following: * The Morehead farm is designed to reduce water usage by 90% compared to traditional open-field agriculture due to a unique circular irrigation system that pairs with a 10-acre rainwater retention pond. Because the system uses only rainwater, the farm is designed to eliminate the scourge of agricultural runoff, which contributes to toxic algae blooms. * By locating in Appalachia, the company is within a day’s drive to nearly 70% of the U.S. population, reducing transportation costs by up to 80% compared to existing growers in Mexico and the Southwestern U.S. * The company’s first farm benefits from being located in water-rich Kentucky, which has seen record rainfall in recent years. That’s in contrast to America’s vegetable production concentration in Arizona and California, states that continue to confront water scarcity and climate disruptions. * AppHarvest has strong relationships with leading AgTech universities and companies in the Netherlands, which is the world’s AgTech leader. Despite having a land mass roughly the size of Eastern Kentucky, the country is the world’s second-largest agricultural exporter behind only the U.S.AppHarvest’s investors include Revolution’s Rise of the Rest Seed Fund, Inclusive Capital Partners, Equilibrium, Narya Capital, Lupa Systems, Breyer Capital, and Endeavor Catalyst. Board members include food icon Martha Stewart, Narya Capital Co-Founder and Partner JD Vance, Impossible Foods Chief Financial Officer David Lee, and impact investor Jeff Ubben.AppHarvest's brand partners include Lee®, the iconic apparel brand known for its timeless denim style and innovative apparel. The companies today announced a collaboration for Lee to be the official and exclusive denim provider for AppHarvest employees. Lee is providing purposefully designed and crafted workwear for AppHarvest’s 300+ employees.
