The OEM will begin selling its 3D printer line on the subcontinent from early 2018.
HP Inc. has announced that will start selling its Next-Gen 3D printers in India from early next year, reports The Hans India.
The OEM is currently in discussions with various industry stakeholders, in order to help them begin 3D printing in the country.
“We will bring our 3D printers in the next 2-3 months to India as part of our commitment to contribute to the India growth journey,” said Sumeer Chandra, the Managing Director of HP Inc India.
HP is hoping to claim a slice of the $12 trillion (€10.2 trillion) global manufacturing market using its Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing technology, and seeks to push 3D printing’s prototyping into developing manufacturing components. Chandra stated that “initially, the focus will be on sectors like automobile and healthcare in India, but the opportunities are immense.”
Through its partnerships with companies such as Nike and BMW, HP is attempting to reinvent the prototyping and manufacturing industry, with the first commercial 3D printers based on open platform.
“The HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution will deliver superior quality physical parts up to ten times faster, and at half the cost of current 3D print systems,” explained Chandra. The solutions boasts a simplified workflow and reduced cost, for ‘radical’ prototyping.
