3D Printing Goes Mainstream

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- As Quantum International Corp. (OTCBB: QUAN) finalizes development of its Apple (NAS: AAPL) iPad cases, the recent news that a nationwide retailer is going to provide 3D printing services has the potential to accelerate the introduction of the cases into the lucrative tablet accessories market.

Popular shipping company United Parcel Service (NYS: UPS) announced it will be the first nationwide retailer to be testing 3D printing services in-store. Quantum CEO Robert Federowicz sees this as just the beginning of 3D printing coming to the forefront of public consciousness.

"The future of 3D printing looks very promising," Federowicz said. "Forecasters believe 3D printing is the next big technology breakthrough, and we agree."

While the iPad accessories market reached $2.3 billion in 2012, 3D printing surpassed $1 billion in revenues last year. 3D printing allows businesses to create or download designs and transform them, layer by layer, into three-dimensional physical objects.

With projections for 3D printing reaching $3.1 billion worldwide by 2016 and $5.2 billion by 2020, Quantum is exploring all avenues into the growing sector.

Quantum International Corp. is feverishly working on completing the development of these amazing forward-thinking support products to compete in a booming global industry alongside Apple Inc. (NAS: AAPL) and Logitech International SA (NAS: LOGI) .
